This is the military - the institution that enjoys by far the highest public confidence rating of any US institution. http://www.gallup.com/poll/1597/confidence-institutions.aspx
A new report by Human Rights Watch has found thousands of U.S. servicemembers were unfairly discharged from the military after reporting a rape or sexual assault.

I just got a message from the Sanders campaign:

"I [Sanders] come from the working class of this country, and I will be damned if we allow the Republican Party, who represent the rich and powerful, to win the votes of working class Americans."

Yeah, because Fox News would have no reason to wheel someone out to make Hillary look bad.

#SlowClap  for buying into the Fox News narrative.

The main Western-backed Syrian opposition has gained little by demanding the fall of President Bashar al-Assad other than fuelling killings and the refugee crisis, a senior official from Syrian's northern Kurdish region said on Monday.
