As a blogger who often posts commentary relating to our military and military history, I receive frequent emails requesting links, endorsements, commentary etc. I simply can't respond and accommodate all of them, but I do read and consider their requests. I recently received one which dovetails into my frequent criticism of certain types of academics. So, with that in mind . . .
"I have serious concerns about Elena Kagan’s actions toward the military, and her willingness to myopically focus on preventing the military from having institutional and equal access to top-notch recruits at a time of war. I find her actions toward military recruiters at Harvard unbecoming a civic leader, and unbefitting a nominee to the United States Supreme Court.
"Ms. Kagan is clearly a very *capable academic, and the President has the right to nominate whomever he pleases. But in replacing the only remaining veteran on the Supreme Court, how did we reach a point in this country where we are nominating someone who—unapologetically—obstructed the military at a time of war? Ms. Kagan chose to use her position of authority to impede, rather than empower, the warriors who fight, and have fallen, for our freedoms." ~ Pete Hegseth, Executive Director of Vets for Freedom
