We've come full circle back to 1976. Ronald Reagan should be turning in his grave. I left her statement alone, because she doesn't have the experience levels of the cold war or any other threat to national security aside from 9-11.
Sorry to hear that Ben...
It's unfortunate that the national media has been so irresponsible with this whole thing. They have no care about the impact that their irresponsible editorials will have on the future generations of citizens.
