The Obama Administration has shown it's not made up of the sharpest knives in the drawer. Their errors are numerous and many have broken laws, which I think is probably due to ignorance in most cases. They rectify these transgressions by hype, outright lying and just ignoring the consequences, with the hope the media will continue to wave the pom-poms and cheer at the right moments.
I think they made the fatal mistake with the trade of Taliban senior officials for one U.S. soldier, who's motives for abandoning his post in a war theater are questionable. To make matter worse, their attempt to put some feathers in the President's cap has now been shown to be outside the law and possibly treasonous.
The tap dancing will be furious, but I have the feeling this one will lead to some serious charges, which even the military yes-men can't ignore. They have to deal with the troops, and they're dealing with people that learned a long time ago to take care of their own problems. Not only that, they're fairly dangerous people and all the polished brass won't stop the wrath of those that suffered, watched friends die and spent so many long years away from their families.
Adding insult to injury, the media is now placed in a very uncomfortable position. They operate overseas under the protection of our troops. Piss them off, and the protection might become only a pretended effort. That's dangerous stuff, when you're in Injun country, which is now most anywhere other than the United States.
I'm sitting with my feet hanging down on this one. The price for this dog and pony show is too high for those that made the presentation.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
