A suggestion for probing our shameful treatment of fallen troops


Let's get this straight once and for all: With great power comes great responsibility.

The president and the Congress have the power to send America's fighting men and women to war. They also bear the responsibility for caring for those troops and their families.

It's their duty to make certain that the families of those who fall in battle don't fall through the cracks. They also have a sacred obligation to see that those who are wounded or injured in service receive the finest medical care that a rich nation can provide.
Joe Galloway lays out his plan for 'winning in Iraq'--treating our servicepersons successfully. Read the rest...

Power is Teh Awesome, but responsibility totally sucks ass. It's like doing homework 'n' stuff.

From Galloway:

One reader e-mailed me this week to suggest that if we really want to get to the bottom of this scandal, we should appoint an investigative commission made up of 10 mothers of wounded soldiers instead of the usual suspects who sit on blue-ribbon commissions and find no one responsible for problems.

That's the ticket. And those mommas have already gotten tough enough to withstand the Swiftboating the Right would reflexively throw their way.
