Allen West Underwater

Let me first say that the idea Allen West violated any law by taking an American flag underwater , with veterans, is totally insane. It's the sort of nontroversy that a Republican dreams of -- you're damn right he'll defend the flag!

Let me next say that the photos and videos producing by a congressman taking a flag underwater, wearing full scuba gear, are totally amazing.
