But Obama is no Truman and we will pay a huge price for that.
IBD has a great post today:
"We wonder, though, how we can defeat our enemies if we can't even bring ourselves to call them terrorists.
How we can win the global war on terror when we downgrade it rhetorically to merely an "overseas contingency operation"?
And how can we defeat them if we're on the verge of revealing dozens of photographs that purport to show U.S. military personnel mistreating captives in Afghanistan?"
It's great for us to play fair and by the rules. US soldiers have played by the rules. They have been a model of discipline and order in Iraq. They have fought in horrific conditions and shown immense professionalism.
What's the point of releasing some photos about the bad behavior of a few soldiers?
I don't get it.
I don't think that those guys headed to Afghanistan will get it either.
Pres BO needs to understand that he is asking US servicemen to fight a hard war in a difficult terrain.
Is it too much for these soldiers to see that their commander in chief cares about them?
