today's date

The day after a heavily scripted act of political theater by the Petraeus "report" we are left with today's loss and the knowledge that the only thing that has truly changed is ourselves. I think by now many of us realize that the greatest threat is not foreign jihadists but a cynical home grown political entity that is attempting to hold power through creating it's own reality while debasing the reality of those who serve, die and dissent.
