Killing A Pregnant Woman Means Never Having To Say You’re Sorry

Yesterday, to make amends for his troops accidentally killing five civilians — including a pregnant woman — during a February Gardez raid, JSOC Commander Adm. William McRaven brought two sheep to the eldest family member of the survivors. I have no idea if that’s actually a local custom, but ABC said it was an amends-making measure that blocks the family from demanding violent retaliation. But to Andy McCarthy, it just means McRaven is a pussy:

I am speechless, other than to wonder what our military will be sacrificing to PETA in order to plead for forgiveness for our cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment of the sheep.

What the fuck could possibly be wrong with apologizing for mistakenly killing innocent people?
