Today Daly talked about Sergeant Bales, the US Army sergeant accused of massacring sixteen Afghan men, women and children in cold blood. It's a tough story. Michael laments the fact that for ten years "we have not had a conversation in this country about the wars we have been fighting" and that we have acted as if there is no war going on, leaving it to the 1% of our population who have directly involved, some of them on tours of duty that extend and get repeated over and over and over.
Daly says "Yes, it appears that he is guilty...and so are we. All of us."
He's appalled that we have presidential candidates who do not even mention this war. Ignore it completely. He noted that when asked yesterday his opinion about the war in Afghanistan, Mitt Romney replied that "he needed more facts." How can someone who is running for office that includes the role of Commander in Chief of our armed forces not have an opinion on the war? That's just wrong.
Daly is right. Where is that conversation?
