BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front): the moral of this story (I know I’m supposed to save it for the end, but I hate suspense) is don’t be a blind consumer of the news. Listen and ask questions, even when distinguished individuals tell you something. Just because they have a title, awards, position etc. it doesn’t mean they have a lock on truth, common sense and aren’t misleading you.
Full disclosure. I’m biased. I think America should exhaust all reasonable options when responding to Americans under attack, even if it provides only a little more capability than what’s needed at the battle.
