Matt Taibbi is the one almost too dumb to criticize with this nonsense conflation in "Rolling Stone" of his superficial policy quips and the real-life issues and tragedies that servicemembers face in doing the dirty business of war. In part for sh@itheels like Taibbi and Michael Moore pimping their own rides.
We're down to .5 percent of Americans now actually serving in the
military. The logical meaning of that number is hard to overstate.
Taibbi is a case study in getting it wrong. Chris Kyle never said he was
a hero. But he did what he was trained to do and he died trying to help
another damaged veteran. Good enough measure of a man for me.
