I literally feel sick: “It was just for fun.” “We were doing our job.”
I’ve never in my life been ashamed to be an American. But I’m ashamed you are an American. You have dishonored the uniform you wear and the flag you were supposed to serve. You have also ensured that the public face of American stupidity and disrespect is the face of a woman – and believe me, certain sections of the Middle East are not likely to forget that. If there was a way to apologize to those poor men, to the country of Iraq, to the whole Arab world, to the whole world, I would do it.
It breaks my hear that the country I love could somehow give birth to you and your friends – a group of people so entirely lacking in common sense and common decency. May God forgive you, because I never will.
