Salus populi suprema est lex*

Christy at Firedoglake posted the Sunday Talking Head's Thread and keenly noted:

I would love to hear Jack Murtha and Lindsey Graham talking honestly about the mess that our military is in at the moment — and about what that means for our national security. And about the abysmal treatment our vets have been getting at Walter Reed and elsewhere.
Well, Christy - I think Jack Murtha did not let you down. Think Progress has the video:
Murtha pointed out that Cheney “just does not listen to what I’m saying.” Cheney ignores the military’s readiness crisis and the fact that “the future threats to this country significantly increased in the last year because we have no ground strategic reserve. … He doesn’t talk about the policy and the results of what I’m saying.”
And just look at who is complaining over at Faux Noise. Brit Hume called "the neglect and deplorable conditions at the military hospital a “potential” political firestorm suggesting that the Bush administration would not have demanded resignations from the Army Secretary and the chief of Walter Reed had the Democrats not taken control of Congress last November."

Think Progress has that video too.

*Salus populi suprema est lex - The safety of the people is the highest law.
