Hi Harry.

Sadly, few things in life are fair. The media is out there Ė all types; liberal, conservative, even-handed and truthful, and the propaganda machines (although the first two may fill this bill). The fact is that itís bad enough that our President keeps putting his foot in his mouth, we donít need our Generals to do the same thing. For the most part they are smarter than he is. I donít care who it is that defends the words of someone important enough for his/her words to encourage the enemy and get our people killed. If you do then you take some of the responsibility for the death of those troops (right along with the person who said it and the press that reported it). Yes, we have freedom of speech but as with all freedoms there is a price. That price is responsibility. If you wonít take responsibility for your words or actions maybe you donít deserve those freedoms.
