Faux News Backs NEW, and improved, Don't Ask, Don't tell Policy....

Hey Kids!
Nearly 18 months after the killings in the town of Haditha, Maj. Gen. Richard A. Huck is a witness in the case.

His testimony came in a preliminary hearing for Capt. Randy W. Stone, one of four officers charged with dereliction of duty for failing to investigate the killings. Three enlisted Marines are also charged with murder.
...
Gittins wants to show Stone did nothing wrong because Marines throughout the command chain knew about the killings but agreed not to order an investigation because the deaths were deemed to have been lawful.

Court documents show that Huck was briefed about the killings soon after they occurred and they did not seem suspicious to him. Huck told investigators that "no bells and whistles went off."
...
On Wednesday, a Marine sergeant testified that his squad leader shot five of the Iraqi men in Haditha as they stood with their hands behind their heads and then told comrades to lie about it.

I am still trying to figure out which is the more tragic part of this story....

That we have Marines who are ordering troopers to Lie, or that we no longer care about how Civilians become Collateral Damage....

Even worse now that we must accept that it is going to be a long, long, long time till americans can, with any sense of emotional commitment, offer any support to the Government and it's Troops, when they try that "but you should trust us on this", having been repeatedly lied to time and time and time again.

Clearly until the Current Regime is committed to Actual Regime Change ( in that Leo Straussian NeoCon sense of the notion, with regards to actual transitioning at the full range of socio-cultural contexts) from a culture of dishonesty and dishonor to one based upon some commitment to morality, can americans actually support this ongoing tragedy and ABUSE that has been heaped upon the US Armed Forces by the failures of the Command And Control above, and the Failure to maintain the standards of the Services Within.

Clearly until the Current Regime has made that Regime Change, it is our duty to folllow the Classical 11 General Orders of A Sentry, and QUESTION THE AUTHORITY of anyone crossing our post. It is STILL our Republic, even if the current regime has no respect for it.

Romney's Unstoppable Rampage Against White Christian America....

Oh ME! Oh MY! What EVER!
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said his Mormon religious faith's history of polygamy could trouble American voters but that he too is bothered by it.

The former Massachusetts governor, whose great-grandfather had five wives and whose great-great-grandfather had a dozen, said in an interview to be broadcast on Sunday that the practice banned by the Mormon church in 1890 was "awful."

"That's part of the history of the church's past that I understand is troubling to people," he said, according to comments to be aired on the CBS network's "60 Minutes" television program. Excerpts were released on Thursday.
...
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as the faith is formally known, distances itself from 30,000 to 60,000 breakaway Mormons in Utah and nearby states who practice polygamy illegally, as well as the many excommunicated Mormons in polygamous marriages who still identify with the faith.

Joseph Smith, founder of the once-isolated sect based in Salt Lake City, Utah, took at least two dozen wives, say historians. His successor, Brigham Young, had about 20.

The practice was officially banned when Washington, angered by its spread, threatened to deny statehood to Utah.

Hum...

Romeny is not rerally trying to sell us the Idea that he is the More Truthier Saint than Either Joseph Smith or Brigham Young??? Or that He has always HATED Father Abram, and so many of the Founding Fathers of the Old Testament??? I mean, gosh, can he get more UnAmerican in one short Or What???

Would this be a really bad time to talk about the ONGOING Jack Booted Radical Left Wing Extremist Persecution of White Christian America with their Godless Bible Burning Hatred of Biblical Literalists who are not willing to compromise God's One True And Only Truth with the Idolatrous Demonic Forces Of Modern SeXular Humanism, or should we just sweep that issue under the rug until after we get the Theocracy up and running...

You know, because we are Now MORE than Ever Before in a time of transferring the tax Liabilities Unto the Unborn, and if we are not willing to be truthier true believers, as is politically allowable within the context of the current domestic political agenda as mandated by the Shrill Hysterical Angry Radical Extremists God Hating America Bashers in the Party, the THE GAY MARRIAGE ONLY TERRORISTS will move into your neighborhood and the price of your home will deflate below your ReFi Position.

Or Those Iranian Flying Saucers Will Come Back!!!

Or... Or... Or....

Row, Row, Row Your Boat....

Sing It with me kiddies, this may be our last time before Noah starts collecting Tickets for the Boat Ride...
