Why isn’t everyone outraged?

Its no secret that I am anti-war but after seeing more and more data,  I can't understand why everyone ain't outraged.  Not necessarily anti-war but outraged!

Case in point. 

From a recent USAToday article:

At least 20,000 U.S. troops who were not classified as wounded during combat in Iraq and Afghanistan have been found with signs of brain injuries, according to military and veterans records compiled by USA TODAY. The data, provided by the Army, Navy and Department of Veterans Affairs, show that about five times as many troops sustained brain trauma as the 4,471 officially listed by the Pentagon through Sept. 30. These cases also are not reflected in the Pentagon's official tally of wounded, which stands at 30,327

And more

Soldiers and Marines whose wounds were discovered after they left Iraq are not added to the official casualty list, says Army Col. Robert Labutta, a neurologist and brain injury consultant for the Pentagon.

Wonder what else is being hidden….

    That is awful! So the tally of wounded is downplayed, which is misleading to say the least… will these people get any compensation, or financial assistance from the government to deal with their unreported injuries?
    Oy.

    Why isn't everyone outraged? Well, at least among the folks I've dared ask (my in-laws and coworkers), it's because thinking critically about elected officials who claim to be doing God's work would be presumptuous, un-Christian, unpatriotic, and ungenteel.

    Part of me is outraged and shocked yet there is part of me that is not at all surprised. I hate that feeling.
