From an officer:
I’m sorry but it’s about time someone with some credibility challenged yet
another whopping lie from McAulliffe. He stated tonight on Hannity and
Colmes that he received an email from a mom that claimed that she had to
send their son a kevlar helmet while he was in Iraq.
This is an out and out lie. I just returned from Iraq in March and I can
tell you without a doubt; No soldier would be allowed to leave a deployment
station without a kevlar helmet. If he lost it in country it would be
replaced immediately, because his chain of command would not let him leave
the wire without one.
This feeds into the democratic myth of bake sales for body armor. I’m
getting sick of this crap not being challenged. As leaders in the US Army
we would never let our troops operate without the proper protective gear.
This is not a smear on the administration, but rather on leadership in the
military and it can’t go unchallenged.
Nobody will listen to a minion like me, but maybe you guys could provide a
decent answer to this repeated crap. Thanks for your time.
