The non-stop right wing Republican attack upon any and all ideas proposed by President Obama even led to the uttering of blatant lies by retired General John Sheehan who told a Senate committee the slaughter of thousands of Muslim in the former Yugoslavia was the fault of gay Dutch soldiers. How Sheehan knew specific members of the Dutch military were gay is certainly a question one should be asking. Of course, he did not have a clue, but Republican senators wanted to hear something evil about gays and lesbians in the military. General Sheehan sent an email to the Dutch armed forces admitting the massacre of Muslims “was in o way the fault of individual(gay or straight) soldiers.” He wrote retired Dutch General Henk van den Breemen, “I am sorry that my recent public recollection of those discussions of 15 years ago inaccurately reflected your thinking on some specific special social issues in the military.”
A group calling itself the Pink Army announced that it will drop a proposed law suit against Sheehan since he has publicly apologized for his idiotic remarks. The real question is why no Republican senator challenged a recollection that made no logical sense!
