Say It Ain't So, Joe
Undoubtedly, the strongest, and some might say the only, qualification for public office for former Admiral Joe Sestak is his military record. So it stands to reason that our ambitious Congressman should be an influential voice on Naval affairs in Washington.
October 12, 2010 will mark the 10th anniversary of the suicide bombing of the USS Cole by Muslim extremists. Seventeen young men serving their country in the United States Navy died that day. The al-Qaeda coordinator of this tragedy is in custody and the military is ready to proceed to trial.
But the Obama Administration has "shelved" the prosecution. They will not allow a military trial until their liberal, politically-correct sensibilities are satisfied that civilian trials are available for the balance of the Gitmo terrorists. "It's politics at this point," said one military official on the condition of anonymity.
Can this be true? Our own Admiral standing idly by while this killer evades a well-deserved reckoning because of political expedience? If Joe does not stand up for the men who sacrificed their all, then what does that say about his character and independence? We know he is a 96.6% Nancy Boy, but you would think he could spare some loyalty for the brave men of the USS Cole. Say it ain't so, Joe.
