Haiti and Ft. Hood: What do they have in common?

First Ft. Hood. Once again, the cues from the top of the current administration is all about being politically correct. Let's be more social. No profiling. Live and let live. Don't be so military. That's why today many officers are being wrongly accused of looking the other way. Let me correct that. They did look the other way. But only because they were too scared to really say what was on their minds. They did not want to look like were anti-Muslim or hurting someone's feelings. From the top, all the way to the bottom. Each and every person who knew better, let the situation get out of hand. And now we look back and want to blame the military? No. We need to blame the current administration and their lack of a war on terror.

In Haiti, we are seeing a massive relief effort not going so well.

This is due mostly to the fact that nobody is taking charge.

Our military was born for this effort. Unfortunately, we have allowed political correctness to seep through. Our military is taking cues from the top not to be "too military." So, we just sit on the sidelines and watch, or get lost with everyone else. Political correctness be damned. We need a general, admiral, whoever, to plant the American flag and say, "We are in charge." Then mobilize our forces throughout Haiti. Keep the streets safe. Restore order. Protect and serve.
