Rachel Maddow and conservatism, the new liberalism - Opinion - Al Jazeera English

Yikes! Did she really write this?

"There are no Americans more impressive or more capable than the post-9/11 generation of Iraq and Afghanistan soldiers and veterans," she writes. Indeed, "they are a huge part of why I'm bullish on America's capacity to adapt, lead, and succeed in the the twenty-first century".

Let's hope no impressionable young people read that. They may be left with the idea that there's something honourable in serving the US empire, that helping invade and occupy places such as Iraq and Afghanistan is something to be proud about, not something for which to seek forgiveness.
