Anti-American Rep. Charles Rangel disappointed

According to the LA Times, Rep. Charles Rangel (D) and Ike Skelton (D) commissioned a report from the federal Government Accountability Office (GAO). The GAO determined the overwhelming number of personnel killed or wounded in the war against terror in Iraq and Afghanistan (by number and by percentage of proportional total service members) are white and from active duty units.

The editor, writers, and contributors of this blog wish to publicly state we are for the war on terror, we support the president, and we believe he is pursuing the right people in the right manner that is politically possible in dealing with other countries. Further, we publicly state we support the men and women of our armed services and contractors, intelligence agencies, support personnel, and the families who support these persons at great hardship. Our intent in reporting and commenting on this study is solely because it would be expected based on past examples, these two partisan and rabidly anti-American Democrats, would use the deaths and injuries of heroic people for their misguided cause - to undermine the president and the United States.

Here are the report results:

Whites, 67 percent of the forces accounted for 71 percent of the deaths.

Blacks, 17 percent of the overall force, accounted for 9 percent of the deaths.

Hispanics were 9 percent of the forece and 10 percent of the deaths.

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders were 3 percent of each figure.

American Indian and Alaskan Natives were 1 percent of each figure.

It is probable that the percentages of whites killed and blacks killed as a percentage of the military force will not be released by Representatives Rangel and Skelton because the facts do not support their desired outcome.

It is also probable that since the facts do not support their desired outcome, we will fortunately not have to endure another call for congressional hearings at taxpayer expense. That is, until the next time the little worms dig up information to support their twisted views of the world.
