A slap in the face to veterans 
I'm traveling at the moment, and posting via iPhone, so I can't really link. But I had to respond to the Obama admnistration's decision to appoint former LA Times colmnist Rosa Brooks to a pentagon advisory post.

This is just the latest in an ever lengthening series of insults to America's veterans.

On March 3rd, 2007, on this blog, I pointed out that Brooks had referred to Bud Day, a former POW, a medal of honor winner, the man who saved McCain's life in prison, a torture victim, a tireless advocate for veterans, and an authentic American hero, as an "unprincipaled, right-wing extremist."

Her selection to a policy advisory position at any level in the DoD is an outrage.

Splash, out,

Considering the news about veteran issues and recent interrogation debacle, here's modern version of famous quote:

"Ask not what your country can do for you - ask how it will screw you for defending it."
