Conservatives attacking the Troops

In an never ending quest to pass the blame of their failed Iraq policy and ideology on the Democrats Liberals Dirty Hippies American people American military, Michael Ledeen of the NRO attacks American troops in Iraq for being lazy.
Note that an increase in embeds doesn’t necessarily require an increase in overall troop strength. We’ve got lots of soldiers sitting on megabases all over Iraq. They should be out and about, some of them embedded, others just moving around, tracking the terrorists, hunting them down. I don’t know how many guys and gals are sitting in air-conditioned quarters and drinking designer coffee, but it’s a substantial number. Enough of that.
Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos:
Their level of disrespect for the poor soldiers stuck with the consequences of the mistakes made by Bush, McCain and the rest of the pro-war crowd is breathtaking.

But telling. The "support our troops" rhetoric only applies as long as they're making conservatives look good. Otherwise, they get heaped with scorn.
Again, these people are shameless.
