Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden: What his Deployment Means for America

Serving in a war zone teaches anyone many things, including intolerance for nonsense, a nicer term for bullshit. Delaware Attorney General Joseph R. "Beau" Biden, III [D] has told those who served in Iraq at the same time,
I've said many times that serving with people like you was the greatest honor of my life. The sacrifice from you and your families is remarkable, and in my estimation, too few in our nation understand the depth of it.
And here's what it means for America: Attorney General Biden, along with New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman [D], has taken the lead in insisting on the integrity of our legal system, that "robosigner" fraud on our judicial system be punished, and that those responsible, including at the corporate managerial level [the military equivalent of which is command responsibility] be held to account.
“This action concerns far more than the financial interests of a few sophisticated investors,” [Manhattan Federal] judge [William Pauley] wrote. “And the intervention of the state AGs in this action will protect the interests of absent investors.”
OYE Comment: We believe that serving in a war zone has ensured that Delaware Attorney General Biden will always find the time and energy to do the right thing for his state and, indeed, for America.

And if more of our civilian political leadership, at all levels, had shared such experiences, our country would be a better place.
