So much evidence, so much documentation; yet, the bloodhounds will probably wind up being locked in their kennels – especially since the spectacularly corrupt Eric Holder seems to be staying on at the Department of Justice (Ha-Ha).
Well, as the pundits never get tired of saying, elections have consequences. Which always puts me in mind of one of H.L. Mencken’s most famous aphorisms: Democracy is the idea that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it – good and hard.
And, with respect to the Petraeus/Broadwell/Allen/Kelley business, while the details are titillating, let us not forget the larger, and far more important, story. As friend and commenter Yojimbo put it:
Remember that during this time period: An Army FOB was overrun with many killed when they received no support. That chopper with SEALs 6 and many others went down. Our embassy in Kabul, along with other agencies was attacked. A base was attacked with the loss of a significant percentage of Marine strike aircraft damaged or destroyed. Terrorist infiltrators in uniform killing Americans has increased dramatically. Our killed and wounded have increased dramatically over this same period.Adult supervision is required. Too bad our next shot at getting it is four more long years away.
