Hear what a “real” soldier has to say

I was reading the Huffington Post, and one of the best features is that there are so many guest bloggers. One guest is John Soltz, he is the chair of VoteVets.org and in an Iraq and Kosovo veteran. He is from Pittsburgh, and attended the University of Pittsburgh for grad school. He is considered one of the major voices on veteran and military issues. He has written a post in response to Rush Limbaugh’s disrespectful and uneducated statements. Limbaugh referred to the men and women of the armed forces that denounce the war in Iraq after they return from service the “phony soldiers”.

Jon Soltz’s Response to Rush Limbaugh

If you want to hear crazy Rush’s “phony soldiers” bit, here it is. limbaugh-20070926-soldiers.mp3

For some reason the video i had about it just won’t work. So this is old school mp3, but I think it should work.

    Looks like you may have jumped the gun. AP reports that what he was talking about actually was a phony soldier: http://www.phillyburbs.com/pb-dyn/news/32-09292007-1415257.html

    [Macbeth, 23, of Tacoma, Wash., tried to position himself as a leader of the anti-war movement by claiming to have participated in war crimes when in fact he was kicked out of the Army in 2003 after six weeks at Fort Benning, Ga.]

    Of course he would claim that. Soldiers is a plural word.
