I'd commit suicide myself if I had to be there. I wonder how many brave soldiers have now been charged with crimes because they did what they had to in order to survive. If I were there I would trust no one, anywhere, who was an Afghan. I wouldn't trust any of them outside or inside the compound. And most of all, I certainly would not trust the heartless politicians who would send our troop out to Afghanistan just to be target practice for the enemy. I want the people responsible for these deaths prosecuted and tried for crimes against humanity. The perpetrators work in DC. Go get 'em/

For an explanation of his act of betrayal of our brothers, some of whom were awarded posthumously the honors he so cheaply rejected. If for no one else, we should all be proud of the awards we are given, and be appreciative of the opportunity to wear them as survivors of the times when many laid down their lives in order for America to be free and for other people around the world to share in freedom.
While Secretary of State Hillary Clinton boozes it up in Australia and the Pentagon grapples with more floozy eruptions, outraged military families are still waiting for answers about the forgotten 9/14 attack on Camp Bastion.

Muckrakers and distraction engineers are having a front-page field day with the so-called "sex scandal." But for surviving relatives and colleagues of heroic Marine Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell, it's the national security scandal at Afghanistan's Camp Bastion that deserves headline coverage.

There's been a virtual blackout of the alarming story in the national press. As I reported last month, the meticulously coordinated siege by...
