Etan Thomas Responds
The Etan Thomas saga continues. If you missed our last trip down this path, Etan Thomas spoke out to The Nation about the use of wounded vets as inspiration for Team USA, and Tom Knott laid into him in the Washington Times. Etan called me last night and told me to expect his further response today. You can read it here, to the tune of more than 1,000 words. He should be a blogger.
With all the casualties -- both U.S. soldiers and Iraqis -- and the fact that there's a civil war on the brink between the Shiites and the Sunnis, it does not appear we will be able to bring our troops home anytime soon. Yet there is nothing, apparently, that the Bush administration would have done differently. And they pretend to care about the soldiers.
Life is precious. And the lives of our soldiers, our heroes, even though they signed up to defend their country, are precious as well.
I would have been happy to talk about any of this with Knott personally. But, instead of talking to players, he cowers in front of his computer and offers up feeble prose and limp, ill-informed opinions. It was Confucius who said, "No investigation, no right to speak."
