Slandering the Troops

On the Chris Matthews Show, Washington Post writer David Ignatius described US soldiers as “kids” that had to be wisked out of harms from Iraq. The “news girl” on a local Phoenix rock station called them “boys.” Can you get more demeaning? Well, I guess its better than calling them “baby-killers.”
