Look Who's "Harmful" Now
Posted by Heather Hurlburt
Is there no end to the list of Americans whose concerns -- heck, whose rights -- can be tagged as somehow "harmful to the war on terror?"
OK, that was a rhetorical question. But the latest entrant in this shameful category -- as all the leading Democratic candidates have come out for ending "don't ask don't tell" -- is last week's letter from Under Secretary of Defense* David Chu to Senator Ron Wyden, in which Chu asserts:
A national debate on changing Title 10, United States Code, Section 654, with the accompanying divisiveness and turbulence across our country, will compound the burden of the war.
Ummm, crummy care for wounded veterans, weakening of the VA, a mushy economy, terrible public diplomacy... those things compound the burden of the war.
