Oliver North: Who Cares About the Military?

I thought some of you might be interested in what Lt. Col. Oliver North wrote in his blog at FOX News. Here is an excerpt:
In the aftermath of the president’s State of the Union address, Democrats claimed that, "the majority of the nation no longer supports the way this war is being fought — nor does the majority of our military." Regrettably, no one in the so-called mainstream has bothered to challenge this unsubstantiated allegation about the members of our armed forces. There certainly isn’t a shred of evidence to validate that sentiment here — or with any of the scores of soldiers, sailors, airmen, Guardsmen or Marines with whom I stay in contact from my eight trips to the war. To the extent, that there is discontent in our military it is aimed at the way the war has been misreported by my "colleagues" in the media and how it is being depicted by politicians in Washington.

So much of the time we let things said by politicians and members of the media go by without ever challenging them. If Followers of Christ are praised for making an effort to make sure what their teachers are teaching is truth shouldn't we also spend some time to make sure what we are being fed by the powers that be is also truth? Just a thought.
