I say this as a former member of the I-Corps.
I am not asserting that there are members of the I-Corps that are beyond reproach. Every organization has its dissenters. However, the members of the I-Corps, as a whole, have sacrificed many of the freedoms delineated in the Bill of Rights and other legislation and thus, are prevented from speaking for themselves.
They have put their families and themselves at extreme risk. What we do, or have done for the United States can be considered as espionage in foreign countries. The common punishment for being a spy is death by hanging. Some countries just let you rot in prison as food and needs are to be provided by family members. If you family members are in another country, then you starve to death and rot in prison.
Incidentally, this is good for life, not just the time in service.
The idea that a sitting president would work so hard to discredit a body of people so dedicated and have sacrificed so much of themselves as well as their families, is beyond repulsive.
The idea that a sitting president would side with the leader of a hostile country over his own Intelligence Corp is incredulous.
I remain dedicated to the flag and my countrymen of all race, creed, gender-identity and views on the freedoms guaranteed by this republic.
