Hundreds of thousands of troops went into danger

And all we got were these lousy medals!

Franks, Tenet, Bremer receive the Medal of Freedom. Once you start giving the Medal to people who screwed up as badly as these guys did, the only lower step is to give them away in Cracker Jacks boxes (my apologies to the good people at Frito Lay).

What a way to boost morale
by keyhoti2 / December 15, 2004 6:28 AM PST

Hi Dan,

As you prob know I am dead against the Iraq war and biligerent US foreign policy generally, but I can imagine how, if I had been born in the USA and was still young enough to be in the military, then I probably would think and feel differently.

In that case I too would be feeling annoyed about these awards (for what??) and my morale would be taking a plunge, especially if still serving in Iraq.

Regards, Gerry

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
