Best and Brightest

Reader comment on item: 3 French Soldiers, 3 Sitting Ducks

Submitted by Davod (United States), Feb 5, 2015 at 09:17

" "If the best and brightest of the country's anti-terror forces are incapable of stopping a simple assault by a man with a knife, there is little to prevent further attacks by Islamic fanatics. As a matter of fact the message of weakness being sent is one of provocation not steadfastness."

The best and brightest do not stand guard outside buildings.
