MILITARY BRASS EAT THEIR OWN FOR POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY
August 16, 2011
Each time I do a column against the actions of military brass (or criticize the illegal invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan), my email box loads up with cranky comments like “you’re a commie pinko” or “people like you who hate the military….”. My husband is a retired U.S. Army Colonel who served 27 years of honorable service including a tour in Viet Nam. He was also stationed at the Pentagon. There, that takes care of that.
Those who depend on the old, useless media like ABC, CBS, NBC and wholly biased “news” networks like MSNBC and CNN, likely know nothing about the railroading of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin.
FOX anchors did nothing to help get the truth out about Lakin because it was “all about the birther nonsense”. It’s easy for many to betray when you’re paycheck is in the double digit millions per year. In 2008, Hannity signed a new contract with the king of pornography, Rupert Murdoch, for $20 million a year. Glenn Beck’s contract with FOX was $50 million for five years. The constantly fact challenged, Bill O’Reilly, signed a new contract with FOX in 2008 for $12 million a year. All three of them have mocked the issue of what natural born citizen means regarding the legitimacy of the putative president’s eligibility.
