Responding to reports that State Department officials are refusing
to serve in Iraq because it’s too dangerous, Rep. Duncan Hunter,
R-Calif., has proposed a novel plan to President Bush – to bypass the
agency and recruit from among U.S. military troops discharged after
Hunter, a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, told
talk-radio host Glenn Beck today he met with Bush just 30 minutes prior
to the interview and gave him a letter outlining the plan.
“I said, ‘Let’s go over to Bethesda and Walter Reed (hospitals) and
as we get these new – these soldiers and Marines who are embarking on
new careers,” Hunter said, “let’s recruit them for the State
Department; and let’s fire these guys that refuse to go, and we’ll give
the State Department careers to these military guys.”
I disagree somewhat with Duncan Hunter, I would recruit amongst all veterans to find new Foreign Service Officers for the State Department. Targeting the wounded vets is unfair to those who have truly given for their country.
Duncan Hunter needs to donate to Project Valour-IT.
Hillary Clinton needs to donate to Project Valour-IT.
Fred Thompson needs to donate to Project Valour-IT.
Barack Obama needs to donate to Project Valour-IT.
Mitt Rommey needs to donate to Project Valour-IT.
Dennis, Ron, Rudy, John, all need to donate to Project Valour-IT.
I am willing to serve in Iraq, as a Foreign Service Officer.
