The Corner

Sen. Lindsey Graham on Ft. Hood

The senator warns against going after “every soldier who shows discontent with the war and every soldier that has a bad performance report.” He adds, “You can be in the military and disagree with policy.” (Who is taking the other side of that argument?) And: “Don’t accuse people of basically giving him a pass because he’s a Muslim because I don’t think there’s any evidence of that.” No, no, none at all. Anyone who presents any is probably a phobe.
