Rummy Wars Part Deux
And the cheap shots just keep on coming.
Yesterday it was revealed that Rummy has not personally signed the Letters of Condolence sent by his office (with a likeness of his signature) to the families of those who have lost loved ones in the War on Terror.
What is it with this constant stream of childishness?
I will remind the reader that, throughout the history of the United States, the families of fallen warriors have been notified of the death of their loved one by mail, usually a telegram, containing the following text:
The Secretary of War regrets to inform you....
followed by dates and other details.
The fact that Senator Hagel is "concerned" about whether or not Rummy signs each and every letter that leaves his office is troubling. Do you sign all your correspondence, Senator? Me thinks not.
As for myself, I think the families of these fallen heroes are far more concerned in ensuring the victory for which they have paid so high a price than in a signature on a piece of paper.
Here endeth the lesson.
