The Filter: Soldier Accused of Waterboarding Daughter – AOL News


AOL News is reporting a story today (in the last paragraph of this extended news release) entitled The Filter: Soldier Accused of Waterboarding Daughter .  Wow!  Let me ask you something.  Can we make sociopaths out of our soldiers or what?  I wonder how the extreme right in America feels about waterboarding now?

Now before we all get high and mighty and start insisting that we are enraged at this outlandish and brutal behavior from a soldier-father, let me ask you to consider something.  Our hands are not clean of this, not by a longshot.

How much combat has this unfortunate and pitiable soldier seen?  Was he involved in any way with waterboarding?  Did we send him back into combat time and time again?  Did anyone in the Army test this guy for his obvious unstable condition?  Was he facing another combat tour overseas? 

This guy is obviously a nut and I find it hard to believe that no one in the Army noticed that something was wrong with his personality.

What this guy has done is obviously wrong, but lets wait until we get all the facts.  I would not be at all surprised if we took a soldier and fashioned a monster out of him.

How do you feel about these ridiculous and unnecessary wars now?  We are now watching soldiers waterboarding their own four year old children. 

Trust me.  We are not innocents here. We have to take our share of the blame for the sociopaths we have created.  This is just the beginning.  We are going to see this for decades to come.

There are no innocents reading this story.  I feel sick.

Here is an update to the story above from CNN News entitled Police: Iraq vet abused daughter, held her head in water . It seems that this soldier recently returned from a 15 month tour in Iraq.

Stand by brother and sister citizens of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.  We are going to see a whole lot more of this in years to come.
