Manchurian candidates

Nearly one in six soldiers returning from Iraq admit privately to at least one mental health disorder, but they don't seek treatment, fearful that their peers and superior officers will cease to think they are reliable soldiers, according to Marketplace.

The group dynamics of this. What PR firm, what Rumsfeldian mini-me, what "think tank," what very white paper, will articulate the balls, the virtue, necessary to out oneself, in this army, in this moment, under this president, for this cause, and trust the group to not close ranks and destroy one's life?

Any other alternative ensures cascading critical system failure within the defenses of the homeland.
