Two of Our Finest Have Fallen

Less than a month ago, seven American soldiers had the courage to tell the truth about what they saw in Iraq.

Monday, two of those seven died. (via)

RIP Sgt. Omar Mora; RIP Sgt. Yance T. Gray.

Update: Actually, it turns a third already fell: Fred Kaplan notes that "
One of the other NCOs, Staff Sgt. Jeremy A. Murphy, was shot in the head during a firefight before the op-ed piece was published. (Rushed to a military hospital, he is alive but recovering slowly.)" (via) If Bush and Cheney had a tenth of the honor and courage of any one of these soldiers, they would have resigned by now. If not turned themselves into the Hague and plead guilty of war crimes.
