Too bad they didn't put it into America's Army. They would have received medals of commendation.
As for this whole ideological comparitive, if people lived their lives as if the person they most respected was standing next to them always, a lot of this bullshit would never happen.
Both sides of the aisle claim a higher moral authority, and yet exercise hypocrisy to the extreme.
Rove is a dick. Doin what he did to that operative would get you shot if he was anyone else.
The officer releasing the docs to Wikileaks is no different: he put active duty soldiers in harms way.
Honestly, the whole lot has me worried about the future of this country. Everyone seems so "me" and far less "we."
It was the "we" times in our history that this country shined most. Unfortunately, it seems like most of those times are behind us. Short term victories and social media statistics drive policy more than a strong moral compass and doing what is right, even should it prove unpopular at the time (see also "Abraham Lincoln," the man every politician claims to admire, but would never be so brave as to emulate).
