Yes, that’s "Antiwar Lite" Al Franken posing with an attack dog – at Abu Ghraib, no less. Could there be a more perfect example of the conflicted, muddled ‘response’ to the war by psuedo-liberals than this?
But I’m always wary of how fine the line is between supporting soldiers and supporting militarism
When you’re posing with military dogs at Abu Ghraib, you’ve crossed way over the line.
I really don’t see a positive side to this. In fact, quite the opposite. It’s a bit like posing with Bull Connor’s dogs in Selma. They might be nice mutts off the clock, but when working, they’re not engaged in the noblest of efforts.
