I am appalled by the delay in awarding the well-deserved Medal of Honor to Alwyn Cashe. The heroic action he performed in 2005 should have resulted in instant recognition. Congress is often accused of making the wrong move at the wrong time for all the wrong reasons. This was one of those times.
Selecting a new Supreme Court justice should have waited while a great wrong is righted. Anyone who votes against awarding the Medal of Honor to Alwyn Cashe should be sent to Iraq to think about his or her decision.
