No doubt the service he rendered the Americans when they needed him will be forgotten by the state department when he tries to get that Visa...

What State Department? That shit is getting downsized to irrelevancy.

That’s a good question. If diplomats are supposed to help us convey our national values and purpose, what do we need them for if we no longer have either?

More to the point of this page, IMHO the United States has been at its very best as a nation and as an idea when we take care of those who have shed blood on our behalf on a direct, personal basis. The Hmong who fought along side us in the Vietnam theater are one of the better examples.

I desperately hope that we don't fall down on fulfilling those promises for our Mideastern allies--the translators, fixers, and yes, HUMINT sources.

I couldn't agree more. Even from the perspective of pure self interest, you can't make it a habit of screwing over people who risked their lives for you. Whether they're foreign assets or our own veterans, you have to keep your promises. I think right now we're failing both and its a disgrace - but I hear the VA is getting better, at least.
