Here's a disturbing report from Editor & Publisher:
"The American Legion will stand against anyone and any group that would demoralize our troops, or worse, endanger their lives by encouraging terrorists to continue their cowardly attacks against freedom-loving peoples," Thomas Cadmus, national commander, told delegates at the group's national convention in Honolulu.
The delegates voted to use whatever means necessary to "ensure the united backing of the American people to support our troops and the global war on terrorism."
In his speech, Cadmus declared: "It would be tragic if the freedoms our veterans fought so valiantly to protect would be used against their successors today as they battle terrorists bent on our destruction.”
On the contrary, Mr. Cadmus: It would be tragic if the freedoms our veterans fought so valiantly to protect were denied to the citizens whose freedoms were supposedly being protected.
It's a shame that the American Legion leadership doesn't seem to understand any of this ... but we haven't given up hope. Someday they may come to their senses. But at the moment they are still locked into the bullshit they were fed more than thirty years ago:
What is clear to this citizen blogger is that Mr. Cadmus has no idea who our real enemies are.
