I asked recently if anyone had more information on the recent goings on concerning a uniformed member of the Army trying to make a comment and being shut down. Sam Smith, editor of the Progressive Review and former Coast Guard officer, writes on his Undernews blog,
THE KOS convention came to an odd and uncomfortable close. A soldier in uniform asked a question and when members of the panel tried to answer, the chair, notes Ezra Klein of American Prospect, "demanded they 'stand down.' He demanded the questioner give his name, the name of his commander, and the name of his unit. And then he closed the panel, no answer offered or allowed, and stalked off the stage.
Read more, including Mr. Smith's commentary.
