Of all the revelations in Bob Woodwards's new book, this could be the most devastating . . .
On this evening's Hardball, Chris Matthews and Andrea Mitchell admitted that the military people in the Obama administration don't trust Pres. Obama's political advisers.
That raises grave concerns for America's security. In purely political terms, consider the implications given that among Americans, by far the most trusted institution is . . . the military.

Be worried ping to Today show list.
Then what is next? Officers and NCO’s discharged due to “political reliability”? Zampolits assigned to each unit?
Do not piss off the Praetorian Guard!
Rome sat on the Tiber River, which received those that did truly anger and betray the Praetorian Guard.
Like Rome, Washington, D.C., sits on the Potomac River, within sight of Capitol Hill.
Coincidences afoot? Let us hope not!
Maybe Obama’s people need to guide the President against saying things like “corpse men.”
Oh so it’s Obama’s ‘people’ not Obama’s decisions...Yeah right..
His judgement was always the concern, when we learned he stayed 20 years in the G-d D*mn America, church.
no reason to trust them
Actually, with the firing of General McChrystal for certain indiscreet remarks to a Rolling Stone “journalist”, we are already headed down this path.
The coming debacles in Afghanistan and the Middle East will probably lead to overt insubordination, several high-profile resignations and firings, and a followup attempt to purge the officer corps of unreliables.
A political counter reaction from the newly elected Congress will be inevitable and may get very ugly, very quickly.
It would be lefty bullsh!t if this implies the military trusts DumBO.
I shudder to think who is going to replace all of these Clinton rats jumping the Obama ship.
Somebody should keep a check on flights coming into DC from the Middle East and Russia..our new economic team and ‘military brass’ might be on board.
Discharged for not enthusiastically embracing open homosexuality in the ranks, apparently. Some Army Lt Gen Bumsquat (or roughly similar name) was sneering such threats recently.
the people don’t trust him either. the rats are all fleeing the sinking ship
There is a recent precedent for such a purge. Clinton very thoroughly purged the officer corps of first the Navy then of all the services, from flag to field ranks. That is why we got bogged down so badly in Iraq in the first place. There were few experienced and competent commanders left. It did not turn around until new competent combat officers bubbled up through the ranks. The “surge” gave those new competent commanders a little more to work with. A year earlier the surge would not have accomplished anything.
The Left never trusts the military and hates it, even when they have staffed it with their own politically “reliables.” From that comes political officers attached to all units who do not answer to superiors in the military but to the political rulers of the country and who can overrule the regular commanders. At this point the lawyers in the field are performing that function but even they are not regarded as wholly reliable.
