This is Difficult to Believe
Let me get this straight, we can kill them, put a round in their brain, but we can't INSULT them by using an Israeli made cartridge--because, of course, we wouldn't want, under any circumstances, to offend the jihadists we're trying to kill. Only a PhD in American Studies from UH could be this monumentally stupid.
Wait, there's more. Chairman of the sub-committee, Representative Curt Weldon (R-PA), thinks Abercrombie has a good point--we don't want to fall into a propaganda pitfall by using Israeli made rounds; it's a matter of sensitivity. So the stupidity is not this time all on the left. I'm sorry, I still don't see the downside to using Jewish rounds. Sensitivity, my ass.
Jeff Goldstein thinks along similar lines over at Protein Wisdom. Great minds and all.
Finally, this is a story from 2004--long shelf life stupidity, I guess.
