And, remembering how body counts in Vietnam sometimes included cows and pigs as VC, I wasn't even surprised that President Obama had all male victims formally categorized as "terrorists" to reduce the number of collateral civilian deaths.
I could deal with all that.
But what makes me angry enough to categorize him formally as the Asshat-in-Chief is the fact that while he was selecting who lived and who died, he had his top political advisor in the room:
David Axelrod, the president’s closest political adviser, began showing up at the “Terror Tuesday” meetings, his unspeaking presence a visible reminder of what everyone understood: a successful attack would overwhelm the president’s other aspirations and achievements.So while I wasn't willing, for the longest time, to publish what is beneath the fold (and I'm still not willing to put it on the front page) . . . it's time.
|It's time to stop pretending that Pakistani, or Yemeni women|
and children don't matter.
