    Medal of Honor winner's story challenged

    Have I ever mentioned that the gov't always lies?

    It was only a matter of time.

    The reporter refuting the gov't's account of what happened was with the marine unit when the attack occured!

    This should be fun to watch playout. I say fun because it's always fun to watch the mentally challenged in Washington try to get sane people to believe their fantasies.

    I hope they have their helmets on and the chinstrap fastened.

    The soldier isn't to blame here - it's the politicians who took advantage of him.

    Absolutely not. He's a grown man. A grown man that has been charged with using deadly weapons to kill other human beings. A man who supposedly was fighting for our "freedom". So, now you want to absolve him of knowing what he was doing? So, if the "politicians" told him to open fire on American citizens in the street and he did you'd absolve him of that as well?

    Either he doesn't know the difference between right and wrong, or he's morally bankrupt. Either way he is responsible for his own actions, no one else.

    No doubt the politicians took advantage of him but he let them. Everyone is so quick to call the soliders "heroes" but the one time one gets to really show some courage, some character, some integrity - you know, hero stuff - he crumbles to political pressure and you want him to believe it's not his fault.

    Yep, lets continue to perpetuate that social attitude of dependence and nobody taking responsiblilty for their actions. Especially the military because they're just "following orders".
