Who's Running the War?

November 15, 2012

Not to beat a dead horse (as I am sometimes prone to do) but how do you have time to read thousands of flirtatious emails and process all you need to do to make intelligent decisions about a WAR? A war where you are asking young people to put their lives on the line? To DIE for their country? Why are you embedded with a women who has never written a book before? WHAT WERE YOU BOTH THINKING? Oh sorry, I guess we all know now what men use to think with instead of a brain. Or maybe that IS their brain.

And Paula, Harvard? All that money spent on education and this is how you use it? To threaten another woman in a sordid love affair. And Jill, calling the FBI. That's too perfect. A woman scorned!!! I love it!!! And you are both married to physicians. I won't even go there.

I know people are human and make mistakes. I know sex and power is an erotic combination. Because, believe me, if you looked across a crowded room these would be the last two men you'd pick to sleep with. But don't we all have moral standards? A line not to be crossed. A time to step back and say, "This is just not right?"

I don't pretend to know all the reasons we are in this war. But I do know if my son or daughter were over there I would be enraged over this scandal. On second thought we as Americans should be enraged at the utter stupidity of the people we hold in such esteem. The people who are supposed to be protecting our troops.

  1. Don't forget the FBI agent who sent shirtless pictures of himself to one of the women. As if this wasn't absurd enough.
