"McCain’s war cabinet wants a war museum."

Writing in the New York Post today, Ralph Peters, a member of Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) war cabinet, blasts the “massive egos” he sees behind the “Newseum” opening in Washington, DC today, a museum chronicling the history of the American news industry. Peters argues that an an American military museum would be better:

There’s no museum in the vicinity of the National Mall dedicated to our military. Tells you a lot about the vanity and priorities of today’s governing and informational “elite,” doesn’t it? Ignore the blood, enshrine the ink. A Pulitzer Prize outranks a Congressional Medal of Honor.

Max Boot, another McCain advisor, agrees that we need an American military museum “— or better still (because less politically correct) an American War Museum — in our nation’s capital.”
