It’s worth repeating: if there’s no problem with the humvee armor situation, if the question was a plant and the soldier who asked it was just some zombified tool of the liberal media why did the room break into spontaneous applause when he asked it?
Update from a reader:
Even more glaring than the applause from the soldiers is the ramping up of the Humvee armoring program after the “you go to war with the army you have,” comment. The administration knew that there was a problem, but didn’t act until being publicly called out. Now the post that I work on has their contractors working 6 days a week 12 hour days to get the 3rd ACR armored before they go back to Iraq. As long as they weren’t taking heat, there was no reason to protect the troops, now that they have a red face, they finally “have” to act quickly.
