As Fred Reed said the Whitehouse/Pentagon views a Marine in front of the camera as a liability. My personal opinion? This entire article needs to be on the front page of every newspaper in the country.
A Young Marine Speaks Out
"A recent Marine Corps intelligence report that was leaked said that the war in the al-Anbar province is unwinnable. It said that there was nothing we could do to win the hearts and minds, or the military operations in that area. So I wonder, why are we still there? Democracy is not forced upon people at gunpoint. It's the result of forward thinking individuals who take the initiative and risks to give their fellow countrymen a better way of life."
