Our Descent Into Hell

Including yesterday’s murders at a Sikh temple in Milwaukee but not counting the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001, around 620 of our people have died in mass killings or massacres in the last thirty years; around 810 have been injured.  The means used by most killers have been handguns and assault rifles.

The dead include people from all walks of life, teachers, ministers, police officers, first responders, children, and even babies.

When you add in the September 11th  attacks those numbers rise to almost 3,600 dead and 7,100 injured.

When will this madness end?

On Getting Bin Laden

This is a great interview by Wolf Blizter of CNN with Admiral William McRaven, commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command. What makes this great is that the Admiral is not a stiff apparatchik as you might see in many countries, but an engaging and candid person. Notice that Wolf tries hard to pull classified material from McRaven. The punch line is McRaven’s final remark on this video.

The Interview apparently does not like to be embedded. You can find it here.
