Conduct Unbecoming

I wasn't aware of this aspect of the Tillman investigation until I saw this cartoon (I guess I am pretty pathetic getting my news from cartoons, but TMW uses direct quotes in their strip). Below is an actual news clip explaining more about the way the Tillmans were treated, partly based on the "Christian" views of an Army officer. As least his comments have been brought out into the open and are not receiving official support. As to what action will be taken, who knows?

Hmm... many words come to mind, but I cannot honestly say that I am surprised.

I used to think that the US is the most progressive, modern and open-minded country in the world.
Sadly, this opinion has changed immensely since I came here, as there are so many examples like that one.
