Never suggested otherwise.
If I said what I really think of Waxman, I’d be banned from this site. He’s reinvestigating all this stuff that’s already been investigated up the yin-yang - Plame, Libby, Iraq war intelligence, Lynch. These are all 100% partisan fishing expeditions, all done at taxpayer expense, and all done for the sole purpose of benefitting the Democratic Party. Hell, why doesn’t he reopen the Watergate investigation while he’s at it? I think the White House should subpoena Waxman’s emails and staff memos, play his own partisan game.
Women dont belong serving beside men in the military.
You can thank the Nags for this, as Rush calls them
So what happened to him? It seems he should have been punished for stupidity.
Great pictures of Laura Bush. She must be the prettiest First Lady since Dolly Madison.
class act of what?
His brother has drank the Code Pink/Move-on.org/Daily Kos kool-aid.
Open Letter To The American People
From the Brother Of U.S Army Ranger And Former Arizona Cardinal Pat Tillman
Posted on Oct 19, 2006
By Kevin Tillman
Editors note: Kevin Tillman joined the Army with his brother Pat, (an Arizona Cardinal) in 2002, and they served together in Iraq and Afghanistan. Pat was killed in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004. Kevin, who was discharged in 2005, has written a powerful, must-read document.
It is Pats birthday on November 6, and elections are the day after. It gets me thinking about a conversation I had with Pat before we joined the military. He spoke about the risks with signing the papers. How once we committed, we were at the mercy of the American leadership and the American people. How we could be thrown in a direction not of our volition. How fighting as a soldier would leave us without a voice until we got out.
Much has happened since we handed over our voice:
Somehow we were sent to invade a nation because it was a direct threat to the American people, or to the world, or harbored terrorists, or was involved in the September 11 attacks, or received weapons-grade uranium from Niger, or had mobile weapons labs, or WMD, or had a need to be liberated, or we needed to establish a democracy, or stop an insurgency, or stop a civil war we created that cant be called a civil war even though it is. Something like that.
Somehow our elected leaders were subverting international law and humanity by setting up secret prisons around the world, secretly kidnapping people, secretly holding them indefinitely, secretly not charging them with anything, secretly torturing them. Somehow that overt policy of torture became the fault of a few bad apples in the military.
Somehow back at home, support for the soldiers meant having a five-year-old kindergartener scribble a picture with crayons and send it overseas, or slapping stickers on cars, or lobbying Congress for an extra pad in a helmet. Its interesting that a soldier on his third or fourth tour should care about a drawing from a five-year-old; or a faded sticker on a car as his friends die around him; or an extra pad in a helmet, as if it will protect him when an IED throws his vehicle 50 feet into the air as his body comes apart and his skin melts to the seat.
Somehow the more soldiers that die, the more legitimate the illegal invasion becomes.
Somehow American leadership, whose only credit is lying to its people and illegally invading a nation, has been allowed to steal the courage, virtue and honor of its soldiers on the ground.
Somehow those afraid to fight an illegal invasion decades ago are allowed to send soldiers to die for an illegal invasion they started.
Somehow faking character, virtue and strength is tolerated.
Somehow profiting from tragedy and horror is tolerated.
Somehow the death of tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people is tolerated.
Somehow subversion of the Bill of Rights and The Constitution is tolerated.
Somehow suspension of Habeas Corpus is supposed to keep this country safe.
Somehow torture is tolerated.
Somehow lying is tolerated.
Somehow reason is being discarded for faith, dogma, and nonsense.
Somehow American leadership managed to create a more dangerous world.
Somehow a narrative is more important than reality.
Somehow America has become a country that projects everything that it is not and condemns
everything that it is.
Somehow the most reasonable, trusted and respected country in the world has become one of the most irrational, belligerent, feared, and distrusted countries in the world.
Somehow being politically informed, diligent, and skeptical has been replaced by apathy through active ignorance.
Somehow the same incompetent, narcissistic, virtueless, vacuous, malicious criminals are still in charge of this country.
Somehow this is tolerated.
Somehow nobody is accountable for this.
In a democracy, the policy of the leaders is the policy of the people. So dont be shocked when our grandkids bury much of this generation as traitors to the nation, to the world and to humanity. Most likely, they will come to know that somehow was nurtured by fear, insecurity and indifference, leaving the country vulnerable to unchecked, unchallenged parasites.
Luckily this country is still a democracy. People still have a voice. People still can take action. It can start after Pats birthday.
Brother and Friend of Pat Tillman,
I don’t remember exactly, but I think he got his command taken away. Other Freepers might know more
Some of the journalists? Most of the journalists have little regard for the truth
And now the Democrats are ready to surrender.
Thanks, I have several more I need to upload to my home page
I absolutely do not understand Pat Tillman’s parents. Ok, he was killed by friendly fire. They want the truth. But to deliberately torch the legacy of their son and his legend-—who would want that for their son? If a legend had sprung up that my son was a hero, and gave inspiration to others, no matter what I knew to be the truth, I’d encourage that view.
The perfect story will be tonight's PBS airing of Bill Moyers program of how the MSM unknowingly started the war and now are trying to end it.
All Bush’s fault, of course.
Next we will see how 9/11 really didn’t happen. It was just made of TV movie.
The whole democRatic party should be investigated. Not just Henry Nostril Waxman
It seems to me no one forced him to join. He and his brother Pat volunteerd to join
I’ve been waiting for the counter coup to the 68 democrat party....for a very long time.
