Gen Ron Fogleman is on that list.
Wow, a better man you would be hard pressed to find.
Honorable and with unquestioned leadership skills.
He is the former Chief of Staff for the USAF, the one that retired early from that post.
He resigned in protest over Clintoon trying to force him to punish the general that did all he could to protect the Kobar Towers in Saudi, and he also resigned because of the pressure from Clintoon to NOT punish the female B-52 pilot that was having an affair with a married enlisted man.
He resigned quietly and there was never really any huge story in the media. He resigned quietly and Clintoon was let off the hook for his meddling in the command of the Air Force. He walked away after fighting Clintoon and his media whores. Rather than hurt his beloved Air Force by taking the fight public, he “faded away.”
Fogleman is a man of honor.
His name alone is enough for me and all those that know him and what he did.
Where do we send these 500 geniuses a thank-you note for being so Johnny-on-the-spot with their endorsement. A couple weeks ago might have had an effect.————————————————————————————————————————I remember Fogleman and the spot Clintoon put him in. I also remember being disgusted that he didn’t fight back. I took the same oath he did and it requires stepping up. Sometimes we draw the short straw and have to lead with our chins. And resigning is a cop-out. Make the crooked bastards fire you if they have the guts. Making a dirty/lazy/crooked/half-assed/ incompetent leader put-up-or-shut-up is nearly always the only real solution.
