Chuck Schumer's comments about the Anbar tribes turning on Al Qaeda happening in spite of the surge is really starting to stick in my craw. It's not just me either, you'll see it on most of the milblogs. Chucky just proves that, as soon as you think Al Qaeda's allies in our government have sunk as low as they can go, they grab shovels and dig deeper. This has to be the lowest, cheapest, and dirtiest tactic ever employed by someone in our government to be used in a time of war. In my opinion, if you go this low in an attempt to gain some political power, then you've now achieved a status beneath the lowliest slug. You slide under the slime you're so low.
Wonder why Chucky doesn't know about Captain Patriquin? You all remember him. A refresher from Captain's Quarters:
The Iraqis aren't fooled. They named the police station after the man who masterminded the liberation of Ramadi from al-Qaeda. They named it after US Army Captain Travis Patriquin.
