Am I seeing this right. Those who got handsomely paid to fight, accused of the worst crimes of murder, rape and torture are commemorated while young men, women who fought for what they believed (whether one sees it as right or wrong is subjective based on where you live) and the civilians men, women and children that lost their life is not allowed to commemorate. That too is done through the justice system. LOL

""These are good people that were driven from their homes by torture, rape, abuse, blackmail and war, circumstances that are really difficult for us to imagine," Snowden said in a video released Thursday." When is the President going to accept that he is commemorating criminals for a cheap vote and to be in power.
