If you haven’t heard of the most shameless use of the sequester yet to come as a tool of distortion for blaming the GOP for the imaginary reductions in federal services, this latest gaffe made by Harry Reid was even censored by all the major news networks such as ABC, CBS, NBC, and more. This blame of the tragic deaths of seven Marines during training exercises just days ago as being due to the sequester cutbacks is beyond shameless. Majority Leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, has stooped to a new all-time low in associating the accidental deaths of these brave young men with budget cuts brought about by the GOP over the sequestration demonstrates the kind of barren ethical practices displayed by the Democrats whenever there is an opportunity to exploit tragedy!
The seven Marines killed along with eight more who were wounded were killed during a live fire training exercise at Hawthorne Army Depot in Nevada. A round reportedly exploded while in the tube of a 60 millimeter mortar which resulted in the accidental fatalities that resulted. The Marine Corps unit was based out of the 2nd Division from Camp Le Jeune, North Carolina. Six Marine soldiers and one Navy Corpsman were wounded and rushed to Renown Medical Center in Reno for treatment. All but one of the wounded were considered seriously injured.
If this were indeed the supposed cause of the sequester measures now underway, would it not be thee Obama White House, who would be responsible for the way in which the sequestration had been implemented by the US armed forces rather than being the fault of the Republicans for refusing to continue the out of control spending of the administration? This is an exact portrayal of the kind of lying and deceitful spin that is allowed by the Obama White House to create further anger and needless blame over bad fiscal policies that can be linked to the President himself.
Senator Reid, the American people find your tastes in blaming the parties responsible in extremely bad taste when it comes to capitalizing on the death and injuries of young fighting men as fodder for your political distortions. This is a truly low point in American political history, ladies and gentlemen. Thanks to L. Brent Bozell III of the Media Research Center, we get an unbiased appraisal of such events rather than the disingenuous spin put on the news by the White House and mainstream media.
