Why didn’t this squad get mustered back when Sen. Murtha was tossing around wild, ill-researched claims about Marine misconduct?

“..improperly ordered to manipulate American senators...”
Waterboarding?

Those nasty soldiers, not like the Teachers’ Union holding schoolkids and their family hostage. With the teachers it is about important things like money, pensions life long health insurance...., but with the military it was about unimportant things like their and their men/women lives.

Manipulating the mind of inbred senators was not a psyops thing.

Toying with retards is wrong, but fun.

According to Mitt’s papa, George Romney, this was going on back in the sixties when he was dumb enough to use the word “brain washing” in relation to how the Army handled him when he visited Viet Nam. Maybe or even probably cost him the 1968 Republican nomination.

The Army only had to use their child unit and dangle shiny things in front of them.

The Senator should be very careful. The “brainwashing” thing didn’t work too well for Mitt’s dad.

Is this a way NOT to blame BHO for what is going on presently in Afg? He and the others were brainwashed? REminds me of blaming the behavior of the protesters in Libya on mind altering drugs!
