Oliver North is a Felon. He was infamous in the military for subverting his chain of command in attempting to further his career. The fact that so many conservatives consider him a hero says much.
If this was one of the largest last week, how many did they have? How much in each one?
Mr. Till makes his own point. In one breath he states that there is a lot of conflicting information in the media. In another, he says that there has not been another attack on the United States since we invaded. While that is true, he seems to equate the war in Iraq with the attack of 11 September 2001.
We were attacked by Al Qaeda, a terrorist network headquartered in Afghanistan, whose leader founded the network in order to topple Saddam Hussien for invading Kuwait in what led to Desert Storm.
A group known as Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia currently operates in Iraq, but they did not exist until after the US invasion in 2003.
The two are far from being directly connected, though many of our citizens erroneously persist in believing so.
It was not a 21-gun salute, those are given to honor the President Of The United States on certain occasions. It was a 3 volley honor which is traditional at military and police funerals, though it most often involves 7 rifles firing three volleys.
A 21-gun salute would involve 1 gun firing 21 times. A quick google will confirm this. These honors are actually codified in the US Code.
