Yesterday, while discussing the topic of the U.S. solider in Afghanistan who has been captured by the Taliban, Fox had on its senior “Military Expert,” Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters, so that Lt. Col. Peters could share his wise, wise, wise wise wise views on the whole issue.
For the record, Ralph Peters has never seen combat; has never been anywhere close to combat. His “military service” consists of a stint in Germany during the mid-1980s, where he no doubt faced down the twin evils of disgusting sausages and horrible Euro-Pop. After which, he worked for U.S. Intelligence, and wrote shitty spy novels with titles like “Flames of Heaven” and “Traitor,” while all the time never being within a thousand miles of an actual gun going off. Then he got hired by Fox. Which pretty much brings us up to date.
