Presidents and Senators don’t have men killed! If you don’t think so then read both the Pentagon and Afghanistan Papers! Both Bernie and Obama had it wrong when it came to Afghanistan! Not only was it not the right war but Obama would fire General McCrystal who was rightly criticizing the President’s conduct of the war.
Rep Barbara Lee was the only US legislator to vote against giving Bush a blank check for conducting this war. Pelosi would try to talk her out of this vote and Nancy would be eventually rewarded with a profiles in courage award. What is the Kennedy’s definition of courage anyway? Clearly not what Rep Lee stood for as both Teddy and his son Patrick would vote for this war also. All that said Rep Lee is the congress lady from Berkeley CA. A city that just voted to change the sexist name of a manhole cover. Probably didn’t require a-lot of political courage on her part either.
And that is all I’m going to say about that.
