Frank Rich must read column: False "Flagwaving" Friends

Amazing column by Frank Rich this morning. Please go read it now. The main point:
This time, paradoxically enough, it is often those who claim to love the troops the most - and who have the political power to help alleviate their sacrifice - who turn out to be the troops' false friends.
This column is right on the money. Rich exposed the hypocrisy of the Inaugural festivities honoring the troops; reviews a new movie aboutt the war, "Gunner Palace"; and concludes by stating, patriotism as it's been redefined for this war, loving the troops means never having to say you're sorry - or even having to say the word Iraq in an Inaugural address.
