Yes, according to our fearless leader, the military is strong. So strong in fact that it is meeting all of its recruitment goals and retention goals. How?
That is a very good question, considering the lousy reputation the armed forces has sustained under Bush, how exactly are we recruiting people and keeping people in the military?
I was reading surveyors article, and wanted to get some more information on the local troop that was killed. I couldn't find it. Not a word. But, I did find this interesting story from the same day. It provides yet another example of the lengths our military will go to keep up appearances. I wouldn't be surprised to see this fella in downtown Baghdad for speaking out against Rumsfeld.
