“The Wounded Warrior,” a new documentary produced by X-Back Pictures, presents a strong parallel between the visions of Abraham Lincoln and George W. Bush.
According to director Yervand Kochar, grandson of communist-persecuted Armenian artist Yervand Kochar Sr., the film proves Lincoln was the first president to lay down the doctrine of spreading freedom throughout the world as a means for national defense — “the doctrine known and revived today as the ‘Bush Doctrine.’”
By a strange twist of destiny, the filmmaker adds, Lincoln expressed his line of thinking on September 11, 1858.
Finally, the docudrama reminds that Lincoln was one of the most despised presidents, was falsely accused of stealing elections, divided and dragged the country in a war over the economy and tariffs, and was proclaimed a social tyrant who violated the Constitution and civil liberties.
Two female senators are rushing to the aid of women in the military who might be reporting for duty too quickly after giving birth.
Sens. Olympia J. Snowe and Susan Collins, both Maine Republicans, are pushing for $2 million in funding to develop a Department of Defense Pregnancy Recovery Education Program for Women in the Military.
The program would address “physical recovery and potential serious illnesses” female troops might encounter in the first year after delivering.
Many women, the senators note, “continue to serve actively while still physically recovering from pregnancy and the physical trauma of giving birth.”
