My compliments on your concise explanaition of this spinless man's decision to pick up his stuffed dolls and head for home when ordered to do his job and go where he was ordered to go where it might be dangerous. I've been through two wars, (No hero) and as you stated, you have to live by the chain of command, or there is no strength or success in defending this country. As for attaching Presedent Bush for the poor equipment getting into this wa, you have to go back to Slick Willie's time in office where he gutted the military of finaces and backing. Military personel had to work jobs off the base, and apply for food stamps to get by. You have to remember now that Clinton "Loathed" the military during his reign. Plus he did let Ben Laden slip out of his grasp five times. Lt. Watada should do twenty years in prison and no less.
