Apologies

Seems like I was deeply wrong about the shooter in Afghanistan. I feel terrible about implying that another kill team was active. Instead, I’d like to echo the sentiments of the President and the soldiers who’ve weighed in with candid reactions.

That this isn’t how the military behaves, this isn’t what a soldier or sailor does. Clearly this person is deranged in some way. And we all ought to think a lot more earnestly about what multiple tours does to a person. Professional soldiers, sure, but no one needs to go back again and again. If we want to wage the longest wars our country has ever fought, we need a draft.
