Sykes Promotes Disobedience Among The Armed Services

In a matter related to the previous post, Sykes, as well as almost every right wing blogger in the cheddarsphere, has put up some link or another to this video.

The video shows a young woman, who served in Iraq, issuing the same challenge that McCain did. The video is sponsored by a PAC named Vets For Freedom, which is basically Swiftboaters Version 2.o.

The young lady tells of all the progress allegedly made in Iraq, which raises the question: If things are so bloody wonderful, why would there be an issue of getting our troops out of there?
And if things aren't all that good, then why are they trying to say it is. They've put themselves in their own Catch-22.

Not only that, but the young lady is identified has having been in Iraq for 16 months, but no where does it say she is out of the service. Either way, it flies in the face of the orders of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who warned service personnel not to get involved in the politicking game:
“The U.S. military must remain apolitical at all times and in all ways,” wrote the chairman, Adm. Mike Mullen, the nation’s highest-ranking officer. “It is and must always be a neutral instrument of the state, no matter which party holds sway.”

By promoting this video, isn't Sykes and the others exploiting this young woman, and advocating for her to disobey an order? Can we send them to Gitmo for some waterboarding, as they are against America? After all, they keep telling us it's no problem to be there or go through that. Just don't ask McSamePain. He doesn't know what he thinks on the subject.
