Sins of the Fathers

The Washington Post proves - yet again - that they have either a) forgotten we are at war, or b) they don't give a damn about our troops:
Sins of the Fathers

April 10, 2010 By CJ

In Exodus 34:7 of the Old Testament, we read:

Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

Why do I quote that? Because the Washington Post is playing God with our troops. In 2004, butt-munches like Lyndie England, Charles Graner and others soiled the good name of our troops and got them killed. While at Abu Ghraib, these Soldiers, assigned to the 372nd Military Police Company at the time, disgustingly abused prisoners of war. Photos of the abuse and torture were released and spread around the world, inflaming anti-American sentiment abroad and emboldening America hating leftists and Ron Paul supporters. All troops were blanketed as murderers and torturers even though they clearly violated rules, regulations, and laws of war.

Yet, while hardly any of the people in the unit at the time of the abuse are still in the unit, the Washington Post has a headline that reads “Abu Ghraib MP unit to return to Iraq.” This is such a poorly worded headline and disrespects not only the troops who had nothing to do with the Abu Ghraib abuses in 2004, but every member of that unit today.

As Soldiers, we all learned lessons from what happened at Abu Ghraib whether we were involved or not. I can guarantee that no one learned more than the Soldiers in that unit and there probably isn’t a unit that is more aware of their past than the Soldiers and leaders of the 372nd Military Police Company.

Why is this news? Because our troop hating media is looking for another story....

You KNOW there is more about these msm who aid and bet the enemy. Go here and read what CJ has to say.
