The story has been going on, and Congress has been trying to work the White House and Pentagon to get resolution.

Since it did not resolve, some of the troops decided to exercise their remaining First Amendment rights to point out the duplicity of the Pentagon and how they have been playing Three Card Monty with the benefits of the Troops, - ACTIVE, Reserve and National Guard.

You can say "I don't just assume they had ulterior motives just because of their political party affiliation" but The Decider, the SecArmy, CJCoS, SecDef are the ones who ARE responsible for the decision and they are all one Party Affiliation and are continuing their complete disrespect for the troops. These weren't ulterior motives, these are just motives of callous disregard and Piss Poor Planning - AGAIN.
There you go again... I'll wait to learn the actual facts before assuming culpability and party affiliations. But that's just me...

Don't believe everything you think

OK, but remember, I will be in Berkeley later this week so my fact-o-meter might be even more stringent

And you have a PM


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
