"We uphold our fundamental principles and values not just because we choose to, but because we swear to -- not because they feel good, but because they help keep us safe," Obama told 30,000 graduating navy cadets and family members.
"When America strays from our values, it not only undermines the rule of law, it alienates us from our allies, it energizes our adversaries and it endangers our national security and the lives of our troops."
HUH? How do our values keep us safe from individuals/organizations/countries that want to harm us?
What were our values during the Oklahoma City bombing, on 9-11, during the first World Trade Center bombing, and on Sunday, December 7, 1941? What were the values of the people of Spain when their trains were bombed? Were Japanes values in the toilet when their subways were gassed?
