The MIA MSM on 2000 KIAs and The AWOL Pentagon on Military Absentee-Ballot Requests

366876953

As we hit the 2000 mark of troops killed in Afghanistan, amid the deafening silence of the MSM, two more of our troops are murdered in green-on-blue attacks by Afghan soldiers.

And our military overseas are being purged from voting in November's election...

FREDERICKSBURG — A 92 percent drop in absentee-ballot requests by military personnel in Virginia is raising concerns that the Pentagon is failing to carry out a federal voting law.

With only 1,746 military voters in Virginia requesting absentee ballots so far this year — out of 126,251 service members in the state —the Military Voter Protection Project says the system has broken down.

And it’s not just in the Old Dominion. MVPP Executive Director Eric Eversole reports significant declines in absentee-ballot requests by service members across the nation.

Compiling data from Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, Illinois, Ohio, Alaska, Colorado and Nevada, Eversole’s organization found that military families have requested 55,510 absentee ballots so far this year. That’s a sharp decline from the 166,252 sought in those states in 2008.

If anybody really believes the rank and file military are not interested in voting in this election ... Well, I've got a bridge I'll sell you.
