George Bush’s reliance on excuses instead of competence in the war on Iraq is putting our soldiers in harms way.
“McClenny told her mother her unit tried to deliver fuel to another base in Iraq Wednesday, but was sent back because the fuel had been contaminated with water. The platoon returned to its base, where it was told to take the fuel to another base, McClenny told her mother.
The platoon is normally escorted by armed Humvees and helicopters, but did not have that support Wednesday, McClenny told her mother.
The convoy trucks the platoon was driving had experienced problems in the past and were not being properly maintained, Hill said her daughter told her.” From: ‘Platoon defies orders in Iraq’
After all this time the US Armed Forces STILL don’t have the proper equipment and support. Let’s get rid of the “What? Me worry?” boy in the White House and get some competence back in government. America CAN do better.
