I have been quiet of a couple of issues. Namely, Haditha and the Duke lacross team. It is not that I have no opinion on either. I think the process should take its course in both cases. In my younger days I was very vocal about my support of the troops after My Lai. Blindly so. I want to see ALL appropriate and relevent investigations and legal proceedings.
These things should not be tried by the public in either the press, Halls of congress or even the blogosphere. My opinions are my own and are right until proven otherwise, but I also do not like the taste of my words either.
Unfortunately, all coverage seems to be on either one side of the other with no one seeming to want to mediate between the two. The truth is going to be somewhere between the extremes of the coverage.
