Helping CENTCOM Support Our Troops!
Daily Kos has picked up on this, but we've known for a while. U.S. Central Command, which is fighting the Global War on Terrorism in Iraq, Afghanistan, Djibouti and elsewhere, is reaching out to bloggers. Well, the Internet offers free access to everyone and that includes the government! [Like, even in the olden days, King George subscribed to newspapers; today, Larry Flynt sends free copies of Hustler Magazine to all Congressional offices.]
We're pleased that at least somebody is using his or her brain to think, as long as they 'engage' in a manner that respects constitutional rights. [If you post contact information on your website, you're inviting anyone to contact you.] And if they do, please share it with the blogosphere.
Of course, if CENTCOM has enough troops to waste time doing this, maybe military recruiting of well qualified applicants isn't really that much of a problem. If so, why won't the Army tell us how many (or how few) of November's and January's recruits are Category IV?
So here's our message to CENTCOM: Please pass along our Military Recruiting Leads so that recruiters will contact the prospects we've identified. And let us know how they respond when a real recruiter Asks The Question.
President Bush and Operation Yellow Elephant thank you.
