    Clearly an even bigger picture is being overlooked in this whole conversation. What in the heck would they do if more than one assailant attacked in coordination? How many would die or be injured and if they don’t have a viable plan to address a single shooter what if there were more? The vulnerability of a military base to something like this is just crazy! Clearly leaders have their heads up their butts and priorities in the wrong place if you can’t even figure out how to take highly trained people in weaponry and trust them with a plan to be armed to protect your base from even a single shooter!

    Right? Next it will be, that is so unfrair of him to flaunt our right to bear arms. He is just trying to make others feel inferior. What a bully. Being white he is also probably racist too. :p

    Pretty sure my ex-sister-in-law has a high IQ to go along with her 4 masters degrees. But that didn’t help her much when she couldn’t figure out how to get from Indiana to Texas. The phone call I got with her in tears frantic because her written directions had one wrong turn and she didn’t know what to do made my lack of a single masters degree and my basic common sense very valuable to me.

    We Virginians think alike :p

    I tend to try and make a bit simpler when I think of where the unemployment number is. We have rough 318 million people in the country and 92 million of them are not working. Even if you included children and the retired and elderly that is almost 1/3 of the country out of work.

    Al-awalki’s son…. I do believe.

    The disturbing part is that the FBI doesn’t give a reason and doesn’t have too. This the second one on a similar company and yet no charges or reason have been given. At least that is what I got from the story. Kind of like the Gibson Guitar thing.

    “or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort” That would be Al Quida, Muslim Brotherhood and probably some more with out doubt in my mind.

    Just got home from seeing the movie….. wow it’s still hitting me. It’s like you don’t get to feel everything until it’s over and all I did was watch it. I can’t imagine having been the one to live through it. I feel so compelled to respond to comments directed to my post. I believe that when Marcus said to Clapper, “We never felt like we were losing until we were actually dead.” says it all. That quote applies, not just when fighting a war… but living life itself. These men who trained to be soldiers, were that way to begin with or they never would have become the soldiers they were/are. If everyone fought that hard to actually live life and push themselves to try to survive anything that could or does come their way… how amazing would that be. What someone like Marcus strives for isn’t just about winning a fight in a war. It’s simple yet deeper than the debate that we could get into over the politics of it or the “value” of what is or is not achieved and at what cost. Simply… these men have already won an individual victory that many can’t fathom let alone achieve. It’s a big picture in the peripheral of my mind and “I get it”, I just don’t know if I can articulate it. Mostly I am thankful for Marcus telling this story so that I could “get it”. I am thankful for what I have learned because it will change me.

    I keep thinking the fact that they answer the call regardless of why they have been called is the “something” they have died for. I think that is what Marcus is trying to get across. It isn’t just the mission. It’s that they have stepped up to be the men to take the mission. The out come is not the victory. The men themselves are.

    I know for me this is my greatest fear. My oldest daughter (21) is severely mentally disabled and I am constantly scared to death something like this could happen to us. I am very particular about her care and doctors because they have screwed up so many times in the past. Since I am just the Mom in many cases it didn’t mean much and I have been treated like I am incapable of reasoned thought when it comes to medical issues and treatments.

    I read the 60 minutes article and this and I haven’t seen where either have said exactly what isn’t truth or what he is lying about. Did I miss it or something? Is there a grand story that came out before these two that says exactly why he is no longer reliable?

    I am a Mom and I find that when I did have a job in IT outside of the home it was very much the same as running my own house hold and raising my kids. Assigning a chore to both of my daughters and seeing how they do the tasks and then spending a great deal of time explaining attention to detail and following directions. Learning that I have to spell out every part of the task and how it needs to be done in order for it to be done properly and even then not always done properly. I spent 18 years trying to teach my girls this type of ethic. It’s what I experienced in the work place as well. Many who unless prompted with exacting detail of the task and constant follow up could do no more than check their email efficiently.

    Being a resident of Virginia I have to say that if being blue is going to be a trend here I believe I will be finding a new state to call home for my family.

    I worded that poorly .. he isn’t slow academically more on the social skills.

  • November 2, 2013 at 8:02am

    My understanding and what seems to be getting lost is that the Big Guy is a little slow mentally and that is what has made him a target. If that is the case then it really is disgusting to me that his team mates have chosen to treat him this way when he has used his physical abilities to overcome his intellectual handicap to succeed.

    If he doesn’t know about it then what is the purpose of the NSA doing it? For jollies? It is either to provide intel to the President or it isn’t and what is the narrative here? He doesn’t want to know or need to know how they get the intel he just gets the briefing?

    Is it just me or is the letter gone? It isn’t showing up here nor at the link for me.

    It’s not about hating her or getting over it. It’s about the secrets and lies that makes child abuse possible and perpetual. It’s about pretending she was some thing other than an abusive monster. It is one of the main things most victims never get. The acknowledgement that this person has done horrible things and it’s wrong. As an abuse survivor I can relate. There is something about seeing your abuser treated like they are such a great guy/lady when you know what they really are and no one believes you, that rankles. Truth is powerful and I hope it gives others the courage to say it like it is and not remain victims of their abuse. You don’t get over it… You survive it and do all you can to ensure you are not a victim of it again.

    I have a daughter who is severely mentally disabled. I rarely get offended by this word. There are those special who few who truly direct it in a derogatory way directly at her and when they do, it shows how pathetic they are for targeting her with malice for a condition that is completely out of her control, yet clearly self inflicted on the one slinging it at her.
