I used to encourage young men to consider strongly a bit of military service after high school graduation. But Chelsea Clinton knows as much about the military as Chelsea Manning knows about manhood. And the prospect of CC’s mother, Her Majesty, being crowned in 2016 would afford everyone in uniform the surname “Stevens”.
The full sentence I was quoting above is: “McChrystal is currently in Pennsylvania for the Aspen Institute’s Summit at Gettysburg, a three-day conference on the military featuring speakers such as Paul Begala and Chelsea Clinton.”
I don’t know what kind of dirt the Democrats still have a guy like McChrystal. Is he hanging on for confirmation as SECDEF? Would you still want the job after Hagel?
McChrystal left the door open to the possibility that Bergdahl behaved inappropriately in walking away from his camp, though he did not take sides on the issue nor discuss any of the evidence that has surfaced in light of Bergdahl’s return. The debate around the trade of five high-level Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, he noted, “raises the great issue that we should talk about – and that is responsibility and service.” There was potential that Bergdahl behaved inappropriately, he said, and authorities “should review that and see whether we met responsibilities.”
That sure is a lot of mush. I guess he is lobbying for SECDEF.
