a failure of leadership
In the United States, we have heard numerous accounts of heroic rescue missions where our men and women in uniform have risked their lives to save their fellow troops. Our diplomats have worked tirelessly to bring home individuals from harm's way in hostile areas. Ceremonies, medals of honor and descriptions of the daring rescues have honored the heroes. Books have been written and movies made that inspire most of us to be patriotic and strong in seemingly impossible situations.
Now our commander in chief is backing down on his duty to keep Americans safe at home and abroad. How shameful. Our military will do all it can despite the failure of leadership.
