So argues Marine Corps wife Cassandra:
Here the Editorial Staff will pause to allow the assembled villainry to pick their jaws up off the floor. Let's walk through what Ignatius just told us:
1. Obama "allowed himself to be talked into" sending 30,000 young men and women into a battle he didn't believe in?
2. Having stepped up the war effort against his better judgment, our Commander in Chief proceeded to support the men and women he had sent into harm's way by "undercut[ting] the surge strategy from the outset"?
Stop and think about that one for just a moment. Think about the American lives - and American families - who paid the price for a change their leader didn't believe in...
...How can anyone praise the "Commander in Chief" for sending 30,000 of America's finest to war for a cause he not only doesn't support but actively tries to sabotage?
Easy. They are, after all, expendable to him (if not to us). They should not be.
This is a pretty serious charge. I'd like to think she deserves an answer.
