Interestingly enough, the head of Africa Command at the time of Benghazi has also been recalled and replaced.
The Navy. You know, they have ships and stuff.
The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.It appears the US Navy has borrowed the concept of a "political Officer" from the old Soviet Union.
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.
Don't be surprised it Obama emulates his hero and purges 1/3 of the military high command.
Made it to AP. Everyone will have this story by Monday.
The uniformed warriers in the Department of Defense must be bat shit about what happened in Libya. They will make their displeasure known.
Whatever are they trying to get away with, I think they will not succeed.
One of the first things President Romney should do is reinstate Gen. Ham to his command or even promote him.
First General Ham now this Admiral.....you know what is happening, OBAMA IS CONDUCTING A COUP! THERE WAS A DAMN MUTINY AGAINST OBAMA/LIBYA MESS.
WE NEED TO START KEEPING A LIST.
Had no doubt, and still have no doubt. There are Men and Women, at the top of our Military, who still believe. God Bless Them! and please, God, if you can find the time, Protect and Bless our Men and Women in Uniform with Victory. Am in prayer for You Lord to bring that victory. In Jesus Name. Amen.
He follows orders.......he got none! so for political face saving that won’t work they through him under the bus too.
Instapundit now says this story about the admiral untrue as well.
Inappropriate leadership judgment is a reason to dump the Commander in Chief.
