    They want the headline to be that the troops are coming home, the nation is standing down from high alert and preparing for a time of peace.

    I heard that on NPR myself and I thought, "What the hell are they talking about WWII for?"

    I thought they were probably fudging some numbers, overlooking the millions of contractors, and understating the increased effectiveness of today's military.

    I didn't think they were flat wrong. Any news organization that ran with that should be embarrassed. And shame on whoever pushed it out.

      must now be assumed.  and flat out lying, thanks to Christie's sincere whoppers.  We can't be trusting of anyone.  Except Rachel, although even Rachel fudged last night, she reported on the demonstrations over all the deportations and didn't mention the part where they are blaming Obama directly. That's news, it's supposed to be a Republican liability, not one for us.  So, even Rachel omits.
