An article on “National Security” from the Center for Public Integrity.
This story is not just about stealing from the government or “deeply corrupted local cultures” in the Middle East. It’s about a very sick American culture. Call it Americanism Unchained. We have to ask, “who is corrupting whom?” May God have mercy on us all.
It’s a long article, but even if you can’t read the whole thing, save the link. It would be especially helpful to show to Catholic parents who might have a daughter who’s thinking of joining the military.
