Honore isn't the most articulate guy in the world. At times, he seemed like a dullard, more in tune with the voices in his head than with the questions being directed at him.

None of which means he isn't a great field commander. It's just that some guys aren't made for the spotlight.

The Coast Guard vice admiral is the guy you want for your front man.

Maybe the voices in his head told him it was time to clean out the press.

Or maybe the voices in his head told him it was time to clean weapons.

Sometimes the press needs a kick in the head to show them that they aren't above the law.

Allen briefing the VP the body language is very telling there is respect here which was not evident with GWB with the head of FEMA last week.

Yeah, (sarc)not everyone can be a Jack of all trades like yourself(armchair blow hard). At least America realizes that the General Honores of America are masters(highly skilled) in their occupation. Some people like General Honore are able to move mountains(troops) far better with verbal metaphors.

On the contrary, I think Americans appreciated the strong rebuke to the press for their propaganda.

In New Orleans, he is the man and exactly what is needed. He is not afraid to say it like it is and like it will be.

That's true. Honore doesn't seem to be an intelligent guy, but he really is, no doubt about that. He always seemed like he was in deep thought or staring off into space whenever I saw him in the Army. But then he would start talking and he was on top of the situation the whole time!
