>> “So, you are saying that it is OK for a general officer to publicly ridicule the President?” <<
That president definitely need to be ridiculed, and exposed.
Mac did what he did at his own risk, and there was no superior course of action under the circumstances. Truman was every bit as destructive to the entire world as Obama is today.
So, if he did what he did at his own risk, he was risking exactly what happened.
As I said before, I think Truman was nothing more than a hack.
But as they say, you salute the rank not the person.
