To suggest the scratch of Omaha Beach had anything whatsoever to do with any “new way” or new protocols or standards is a complete detachment from reality or worse.

To imply otherwise and group those who do right with those who do not in a weak attempt at some sort of spin is just wrong, and incorrect. I don’t know, maybe she never heard of A. P. Indy, I Want Revenge, I’ll Have Another, Rachel Alexander, Fusaichi Pegasus, and many others in the past 100 years or so.
