Now that the House of Representatives opposes the Iraq war, the military has provided guidelines on what troops should say to reporters.
Commanders advise their soldiers that they should talk about the things that they know,” [Christine Wormuth, a defense analyst with the Center for Strategic and International Studies] said. A truck driver, for instance, might be on solid ground talking about the need for spare parts, vehicle armor and better protection against roadside bombs. “But talking about whether it was a good idea to invade Iraq might be out of their lane as a truck driver.”
The corollary here is that ordinary citizens are not qualified to opine, either. If I am not mistaken that runs counter to the sense of every Founding Document we have.
The current Administration can kiss my pointy head.
