Unleashing Hell

BoeingadBoeing, Bell Helicopter and their ad agency developed this ad for its V-22 Osprey helicopter, which features US Marines descending into a mosque, then tried to backpedal.  But to no avail: the ad ran in the National Journal and also in the Armed Forces Journal. 

The Seattle Times has the scoop .

Boeing is claiming that someone at Bell approved the ad without authority.  Whatever.

How come nobody piles on Boeing and Bell -- or the National Journal -- for giving "aid and comfort" to the enemy?  Whatever happened to the White House's admonition that people ought to "watch what they do and say?"
