Another tradition broken, post-Clinton.
If the Military enlisted were allowed to complain during the Clintoon years, Clintoon would not have lasted 6 months. We would have seen the poll about letting gays in the military, and that would have been the end.
Clintoon broke the tradition about criticizing a current President's policies, and it trickled down.

Agreed. My son was in the Navy under Clinton, and they hated Clinton, but nobody was dumb enough to state this publicly.
I think these soldiers shouldn't be punished but warned. Most of all, I think they should be warned about the fact that the press is not their friend, and basically wants to attack GWB through them, and doesn't care if it makes them look bad or sends them up before Captain's Mast in the process.
Remember, most of the press is what would have been considered "4-F."
