President George W Bush visits CIA Headquarters, March 20, 2001.

What we know confidently now is that torture did take place under the Bush Administration by the CIA, that it didn’t work or help keep Americans safe, that it permanently undermined our nation’s moral authority in the world and that there is absolutely no regret or apology from those who oversaw and committed it.

Iraq Vet

A young man, haunted by his life in Iraq and Afghanistan. He looks SO young but he does not smile. Empty eyes, and even in the midst of a crowd very much alone.

Fighters of  al-Qaeda linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant parade at Syrian town of Tel Abyad

Who does ISIS have to thank for the deadbolts being broken on the doors to Iraq? They ought to commission a bathtub self portrait of George W. Bush out of gratitude.

Throughout American history, Republicans have always stood for supporting the goals they speak up for…then attacking any Democrats who accomplish them!

Despondent and angry, could Bergdahl have walked away expecting to die?

POW trades have happened for almost all wars. Those who argue that we should not trade for our soldiers don’t seem to understand that if we leave them and don’t try to swap for them we will have trouble getting people to join the service.

Putin’s game plan has been clear, using Russia’s renewed oil revenues and supplies to support and control those countries that undermine stability for the rest of the world to create a space for Russia to wedge itself back in as the most powerful and threatening force among nations.

It was a no-brainer (or as known in Republican circles, a “Gohmert”) for Republicans to vote against background checks, an assault weapons ban and a gun magazine limit. And it was just as easy for them to be “outraged” by the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. Only If deaths help them politically, do they matter.

With a wiser and less duplicitous administration, the U.S. could have left Afghanistan in 2002.

There can be no question about the historic importance of 9/11 and how it changed the course of America. There’s an enormous amount to be learned and remembered but there can be a thin line between exploring those events and exploiting the horror of that day just for ratings or other less than altruistic agendas.
