The worst man in America

19-year-old Davenport, IA native Katie Soenksen was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq Wednesday. Her grieving father said of his daughter's sacrifice:
"There's people that want to pull (the troops) all out," [Ronald] Soenksen said. "Those people should be taken out and hung. It's a slap in the face to every American."
