Some Days Are Just Like That...

Our Friends over at Mojo Wire asked:
Let me see if I really get what GOP Rep. Ted Poe of Texas is saying here... Even though the Guard at the border is a "publiclity stunt" for the administration, we should at least be thankful that some would-be undocumented aliens aren't crossing the border because they fear being beaten, raped and killed by the National Guard...

Today we get the gooder news:
The U.S. military is investigating whether U.S. soldiers raped an Iraqi woman and then killed her and three members of her family, including a child, south of Baghdad in March, officials said on Friday.

It is the latest in a series of military investigations in which U.S. troops are suspected of killing civilians in Iraq.

Army Maj. Gen. James Thurman, the top U.S. commander in the Baghdad area, asked the Army's Criminal Investigation Command to look into the deaths in Mahmudiyah, south of the capital, the military said.

I guess taht will make Rep. Ted Poe Feel All Fuzzy Wuzzy Safe.

Clearly when we have troopers from the 502nd Infantry Regiment, 101st AD, it has got to be sending the right type of message to those Illegal Immigrants.
