Panetta said “(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place”.

I understand the fear of a standing military as a threat to individual sovereignty of a free We the People and the need for civilian control but that doesn’t mean the Commander in Chief has to be grossly ignorant of military strategy and tactics. A president should at least be intelligent enough to accept advice from officers that spent their lives becoming experts.

Obama and Panetta are as qualified to understand advice from the JCS and other top level commanders as they are to advise a brain surgeon how to operate.

How can our nation survive when voters elect such utterly incompetent leaders and approve their appointments to positions like Secretary of Defense or State?
