Pentagon Says, MLK Would Understand WhyThe United States Is At War

Is it just me or are these guys getting desperate in their attempts to justify their unjustifiable wars. In a so called commemoration of MLK's legacy  Pentagon lawyer Jeh Johnson posits that King Might Understand Today’s Wars.

"In King’s last speech in Memphis, Tenn., on April 3, 1968 -- the night before he died -- King evoked the biblical parable of the Good Samaritan"

"Johnson compared today’s troops to the Samaritan, who chose to help instead of taking an easier path."

Update: Listen to Dr. King's Rebuttal
