Gee, maybe we should blow in a call to Mrs. “The Troops Are My Number 1 Priority, When I’m not Tell You What to Eat, Feed Your Kids, and How Much Water to Drink” Obama and let her know about this outrage. From kpbs.org:
Troops stationed overseas, from Afghanistan to Japan, depend on American Forces Network to watch NFL and MLB games during deployments to take their minds off their stressful jobs. But most AFN channels are now off the air due to the government shutdown.
According to the AFN website, only AFN News and AFN Radio will be broadcast during the government shutdown. The channels that air sports, movies, and television shows like “Homeland” or “The Sopranos” are off the air.
