I did not hear and have not yet read the transcript of President Obama’s commencement address Saturday to West Point cadets. I did note this comment by columnist John Cory of Reader Supported News:
“President Obama gave a commencement speech to West Point. You should read it because frankly it chilled me to the bone to hear how the wars all started, why they continue and what is ahead on the horizon - more of the same but not as much.”
I’ve read about a kajillion words concerning how the wars started, and I do know that a total of 5,471 U.S. soldiers (6,498 total coalition) have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
And, I am interested in “what’s ahead on the horizon.”
So, I’m getting off to read the TRANSCRIPT.
