Where’s the Outrage from Military People?
Among the numerous insults that Limbaugh made against Wesley Clark in the past few days (scroll down) are an allegation and an insinuation that, if true, would be punishable by court martial under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. As I mentioned, Limbaugh accused Clark of begging for his fourth star (Limbaugh based this charge from an article in a web site of an admitted violator of the Espionage Act—see my 9/17 post); the conduct Limbaugh accuses Clark of would be a violation of Article 133 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice: Conduct unbecoming an officer and gentleman. Limbaugh also claimed, without a shred of evidence, that Clark “might surrender to the world domination types...”(for the full qote, scroll down to my 9/18 post, "Limbaugh Update"). Limbaugh’s innuendo suggests that Clark is capable of behavior that would put him in violation of Article 99 (misbehavior before the enemy), and Article 104 (aiding the enemy). These are serious charges that Limbaugh cavalierly made without any evidence. In fact, Clark’s biography reflects the opposite of Limbaugh’s charges.
Where’s the outrage? Limbaugh’s show is carried on the American Forces Network. Why aren’t military people up in arms about the vicious unfounded accusations made by Limbaugh?
