Rodriguez requires Senate confirmation before he can assume his post.
As in placing under arrest??
We have a coup brewing?
No, what we have is a writer with an overactive imagination who has obviously been watching the series "Last Resort".....
Excellent drama series and I highly recommend it.........
General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.
Who did relieved him of command? Who ordered him to stand down?
Sounds like General Ham was the only one who did his freakin job!~
Knowing how the Army works, I have a lot of trouble believing this.
The House needs to talk to these officers.
Okay, you want confirmation. Confirmation you’ll get.

Sounds to me like the Stuff just hit the fan.
Anybody starts sh**canning folks at this level, and VERY bad things are going to happen.
Monday morning (between this crap and Petraeus/CIA going at least partially public on Friday) could be VERY interesting.
It does, doesn't it? Along with the Admiral who was very abruptly relieved.
Of course he has been officially labeled as unreliable.
Out of here for a few hours.
If turns out to be true, this general must be put under oath
to tell what he knows.
You’re aware of normal command rotations, right? They usually run anywhere from 18 months to two years. Somebody has an over active imagination here.
“Knowing how the Army works, I have a lot of trouble believing this.”
Color me confused, Timber Rattler. If you have some insight into this story, please provide the details.
I think it went - he receives orders to stand down ; his reply is, no it is my duty as commander to respond and save these people; then they (WH/Obama) say - you are relieved of command.
This doesn't have as much to do with how the Army works as how Chicago does....
I grew up 90 miles from the joint, and I don't have any trouble believing this (or worse) at all.
General Ham should resign NOW, before the elections and walk right into the House Committe and tells what he knows under oath.
No one to my knowledge has said the he was relieved from office because of his involvement in the Benghazi issue.
If I am wrong...I stand corrected.
The slow drip, drip, drip of info coming out over this, all done deliberately by patriotic Americans I suspect, is going to have him curled up in the fetal position, crying for his Marxist mommy, before election day.
In my worst dreams I can't imagine a more inept and devious person assuming the role of President.
