Martin Luther King, Jr. would support Afghan war, Defense Department says

 |  NCR Today

If Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. were alive today, he would support the Afghan and Iraq wars, a Defense Department official said at the Pentagon commemoration of the civil rights icon yesterday.

"I believe that if Dr. King were alive today, he would recognize that we live in a complicated world, and that our nation's military should not and cannot lay down its arms and leave the American people vulnerable to terrorist attack," said Jeh C. Johnson, the Defense Department’s general counsel, according to the American Forces Press Service.

I think this news is worthy of a poll.
