Sitting around on the patio following a nice dinner a friend who is an Obbamamaniac mentioned, offhandedly, that US troops in and after Iraq and Afghanistan are being given very high levels of, for lack of any educated term, mind/mood drugs. This passed quickly while I wasn't paying close attention to that speaker and it only sunk in later, so I never had an opportunity to question the source or meaning. But I gather that he was suggesting that US troops (and, presumably, other allied troops) are having high levels of psychological problems.
I've searched a bit and found no mention of this. My initial thought is to suspect that it is along the lines of the "US troops committing suicide" exaggerations but since I'm not seeing anything about it I'm wondering where the heck it came from. Has anyone heard this coming from their loon buddies or seen this in the leftist press or anywhere else?
