Compare their culpability to that of the high-ranking officials who have presided over or promoted this country’s various military misadventures of the present century.
Nor have those costly military efforts eliminated ‘terrorism’ as President George W. Bush promised back when today’s G.I.s were still in diapers.
Bush told us that through war the United States would spread freedom and democracy.
Instead our wars have sown disorder and instability – creating failing or failed states across the Greater Middle East and Africa.
In their wake have sprung up ever more – not fewer – jihadist groups – while acts of terror are soaring globally.
These are indisputable facts.
