Don't these idiots understand that these terrorists float back and forth between organizations.
They could be PA today, Fatah tomorrow, Al Queda next week and Taliban by Christmas day!
Interesting note. This Lt. General has been on active duty since 1970 and has NO combat tours. He is a member of the Counsel on Foreign Relations, but has NO medals and awards from combat, not even a Bronze Star!
He has the Defense Distinguished Service Medal with 2 Oak Leaf Clusters, Army Distinguished Service Medal, Defense Superior Service Medal, Legion of Merit with 1 Oak Leaf Cluster, Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Basic Parachutist Badge, Ranger Tab Joint Chiefs of Staff Identification Badge, Army Staff Identification Badge,
Other than Jump School and Ranger School, these are ALL "you were a good staff weenie" awards.
We are training Fatah to kill our best friends in the Middle East. How far we have fallen, in so many ways.
Is this for real?
This is a joke, right? Please tell me this is just a bad dream.
The Mossad could go for him...
To quote “ACE” “How Long Has This Been Goin On” ?
Zero bows to America’s enemies.
Zero doesn’t know Bibi.
Under this current administration anything’s possible, but could this just be propaganda? Or to take the focus off another failed attempt to govern on dashed hopenhagen.
Ping for LucyT

Lieutenant General Keith W. Dayton, (b. 1949) United States Army, is currently the U.S. Security Coordinator for the Israel-Palestinian Authority in Tel Aviv, Israel. He has also served as the Director of the Iraq Survey Group, as a senior member of the Joint Staff, and as U.S. Defense Attache in the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, Russia.
Gen. Dayton was commissioned as an artillery officer through the Reserve Officer Training Corps in 1970. Prior to his current assignment, he spent 37 years in a variety of command and staff assignments, most recently serving as the director of the Iraq Survey Group during Operation Iraqi Freedom and as Director of Strategy, Plans and Policy, Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-3, United States Army, before his current assignment as U.S. Security Coordinator for Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
Other key assignments include deputy director for Politico-Military Affairs, Joint Staff; United States Defense Attaché, Moscow, Russia; senior Army fellow on the Council on Foreign Relations, New York; commander, Division Artillery, 3rd Infantry Division (Mechanized), Germany; and commander, 4th Battalion, 29th Field Artillery; 8th Infantry Division (Mechanized), Germany.
He has written many technical articles over the course of his career, as well as was one of the co-authors of The Future of NATO: Facing an Unreliable Enemy in an Uncertain Environment, a study on the future of NATO published in 1991.
President Obama's envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell, has asked Dayton, the American who has been overseeing the training of Mahmoud Abbas's police forces, to stay on for two more years. Dayton, whose three-year assignment was due to end, has agreed, diplomats said.
Could you post the link to Reuters? This story is dated May of 2009, and the only link is to another article from the same paper.
What do you mean “not even a Bronze Star?” I’d also point out that prior to WWII, Ike didn’t have any combat tours either, so that comment really doesn’t amount to a hill of beans. That said, I agree that we have no business equipping and training our enemies.
This is a perfect example of how the left has infiltrated the armed forces for the past 60 years.
Insanity has become the norm in DC along with treason.
This is UNREAL...
THe most appropriate words spoken...
“this aint America no more”
Time to retake it is well overdue!
Fatah (secular, nationalist, socialist) special forces were butchered in Gaza by Hamas when Hamas threw Fatah out of Gaza.
Hamas is now threatening to take over the West Bank and these special forces that the Dayton is training in Jordan are to prevent Islamist Hamas (backed by Iran) from succeeding in overthrowing Abbas.
Unfortunately, Obama’s kiss-up-to-Muslims attitude and promise to lean on Israel led Abbas and the other Arab states to drop concessions agreed to with Bush and Clinton and demand a full Israeli pullback to the 1967 borders.
Yes, any Fatah personnel are suspect, but the Israelis will make sure they don't get any heavy weapons ever.
Sounds like a bunch of BS to me
So all of you arm chair generals can explain how you can conduct asymmetrical warfare when you don’t have any assets on the ground. This is how it is done people. Arafat was the best damn asset that the United States had on the ground because he was able to be controlled. Hamas and Hezbollah are not controlled by any Nato ally and the closest thing that comes even close is the SGDN. Some of the comments on this board are so damn naive some times it makes me sick
