(Newser) – A Navy sailor was killed and several others were hurt in a tactical training exercise at Fort Knox in Kentucky, military officials say. The six sailors assigned to the group were riding in a Humvee when the accident happened Wednesday night, though exactly what happened remains under investigation. Fort Knox is about 50 miles southwest of Louisville and is home to about 14,000 military personnel.

Tough sheet. Dismantle the wasteful, dangerous, worthless 1945 era Nazi Institution that rapes 20,000 of its own last year. Generals are little emperors that believe that they should be obeyed. F them all and fire them. Stalin had the right idea in the 30's. Kill them all. Our military destroys freedom. It sure as hell does not create it.

Considering that Mr. Obama terrorized our Marine Corps by asking two of them to hold umbrella over the heads of the Presidents of Turkey and the US, I really doubt that the Repubs will be able to take time out of the above investigation to do this one. There can only be so many faux scandals before one starts losing track of which are impeachable and which are not. Besides, the Repubs aren't super stupid (though, close), and they are beginning to realize that if one is to lie a lot, one must remember what was said.
