  •  BushCo screwed our soldiers didn't he? (6+ / 0-)

    My understanding of his actions as they relate to our troops are:

    1. America's torture policy exposed our troops to greater risks than they would have been exposed to otherwise.
    1.  Our troops were sent into harm's way without adequate equipment and personal safety gear.
    1.  Outsourcing things like the responsibility for feeding the troops lead to our troops receiving poor food in some cases.
    1.  Many of our injured and traumatized soldiers have recived poor treatment or no treatment for their medical issues.

    I'm sure this list doesn't completely cover all the ways BushCo screwed our troops.

    It seems to me that one of the biggest outrages to come out of BushCo is the way this administration has treated the uniformed men and women who have devoted themselves to protecting America.
