With apologies to Alanis Morissette.
This particular story ain’t really new, or news. TAH has already covered parts of the debacle that is the ongoing neutering of our country’s defenses. At all levels really – from our back doors to the international arena.
One paragraph from the link rattled my cage just enough to bring it to your attention:
“This is not something that should be done as a way to blame the other party for what happens,” Panetta said. “This is going to hurt the United States and hurt our defense.”
I’m at a loss here. It seems to be the PC mindset writ large. I reckon both parties in a rape are at fault? The store owner who shoots a robber pointing a gun at him while demanding the money from the register is part of the problem? Shutting down Head Start could save billions, but it is a (failed) well meaning program. The list of PC things that I can’t seem to understand grows everyday.
Folks, I dunno where this will end… Well, I AM kinda old and paranoid so maybe it is just me?
