Instead, it looks like the Obama-Hagel administration was caught red-handed contemplating policies that violate the rights of American service members, and they are literally attempting to rewrite the dictionary through a press release to offer a disingenuous explanation of why things are not as disturbing as they appear.

More official 'stupidity' or deliberate malice toward Americans?

Last night Greta was one of the Fox pundits covering this and she had her twitter feed running along the bottom of the screen... this did not go over well with the general twitterer.

I'd like to see musiclady's take on this. As I recall, when her son served in Iraq, he engaged in actions that now might subject him to court martial.

I'm sure it didn't, but when did general public opinion mean anything to our government?

It's not like they are there to do what we want anyway...  /s

What about the rights of a soldier to not be subjected to evangelizing and/or proselytizing? Does he have that right?

For instance should a Mormon be subjected to Free Republic style hostility to his faith?

Should a moderate Protestant, be subjected to evangelizing by hardcore evangelicals? A Jew? An aetheist?

How many times would the soldier need to reject the attempts, before it would be considered unreasonable?

The military needs to consider the "rights" of all members of their services, not just those who are most aggressive in claiming to have "rights."

As I said in other threads, there has been a tremendous number of African-Americans in the military that practice Islam and have taken Islamic names.

It's running through the prison system too.

Maybe they're trying to squelch this....and because of rabid political correctness, have to include EVERY religion....Christian, Jew, Buddhist and Muslim?
