Skip to comments.'Purge surge': Obama fires another commander
Posted on 11/05/2013 9:19:14 AM PST by rarestia
After multiple top generals described to WND what they regard as a full-scale purge of the U.S. military by the Obama administration, the commander of U.S. Army Garrison Japan was summarily relieved of duty and his civilian deputy reassigned, pending a misconduct investigation.
Nine generals and flag officers have been relieved of duty under Obama just this year widely viewed as an extraordinary number and several sources put the total number of senior officers purged during the five years of the Obama administration as close to 200.
In response, prominent retired generals ranging from Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely, a Fox News senior military analyst, to Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, a founder of the Armys elite Delta Force, to Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. Patrick Henry Brady have all gone on the record with WND, characterizing Obamas actions as nothing less than an all-out attack on Americas armed forces.
According to U.S. Army Japan, Col. Eric Tilley was suspended from his job by Maj. Gen. James C. Boozer Sr., commander of U.S. Army Japan and I Corps (Forward) for a lack of confidence based on the results of an inquiry.
A spokesman for U.S. Army Japan, Maj. Kevin Toner, would not elaborate on what prompted a lack of confidence, saying it would be inappropriate to make public the allegations because the investigation did not lead to findings of criminal misconduct.
Tilley is to be replaced by Col. Joy Curriera.

The fags are in control of our military.
Has NSA been given orders to snoop on all military leaders - maybe from O-5 and up??
Using NSA for political purposes would be something Obama and his minions would jump into with both feet. That is their style!!
Hate to say it, but once we rid ourselves of this worthless Nazi dictator a new conservative president will be forced to fire the JCS and the dicklickers obama appoints to the various commands. Bush should have done this when he first took over from clinton.
We are at war? Are we not?
I’m pretty sure a mid-level Roman functionary will join us to assure us this is perfectly normal and nothing for us to worry our pretty little heads over.
No. WE are not at war. Our enemy is at war.
In situation like this, a base CO being collateral damage (rightfully or not) in this situation is not a surprise. Not a purge.
Colonels don’t count. This may come as a surprise to many, but Generals and Colonels get fired all the time. Not in large numbers, but when they screw up, especially on the personal conduct side, there is a price to pay. That’s one reason why the military is held in high regard, the bad apples are pulled from the tree. It’s also done by the military itself - the political appointees don’t get involved as a rule until you get to 3-star level. There are always exceptions, but this one is certainly below the radar screen of the bozos in Washington.
My sources tell me that people are getting shoved aside or threatened if they don’t toe the political lines. The problem is that almost all are doing what they are told. No one is speaking out or resigning in protest. That’s the real problem.
OK, we’re IN a war.
The president is at war with you.
Just to put a WOMAN in charge.....JOY!
Stalin and Pol Pot did the same thing, except they killed the officers and their families. What it means is that the American military has lost its expertise. We will get creamed real bad in future engagements.
Generals who are against homos in the military and who refuse to fire upon civilians will not be tolerated. Only yes-men who will follow Der Fuherer’s command to institute the coming martial law will be allowed to remain.
I’m engaged. Not sitting idly by any means.
Just one....does anybody here not recognize that our Community Organizer-In-Chief,disciple of Saul Alinsky and Bill Ayers,climaxes in his pants whenever he fires a General or Admiral?
Someone named Eric replaced by someone named Joy.
More chicks in charge. Soon all the problems in the military will be solved, just like they were after chickifying Congress with such sterling reps as pelosi, boxer, feinstein, mikulski, collins, snowe, et al.
Can’t wait until the SEALs are introduced to chick-first affirmative action.
characterizing Obamas actions as nothing less than an all-out attack on Americas armed forces.
They must be conservative...
You just can't find good help these days!
+1, one of Bush's biggest mistakes IMHO.
If we can manage to get a conservative elected, there needs to be a PURGE of government officials in all departments the likes of which have never been seen in history.
That was always a question in my mind, clouded over by the Sept 11 attack on America.
We all forgot about the embeds and they continued their dirty work.
Not a word of this in the 6 o’clock news. Wonder why.
Bush was no conservative. He held the belief that the right and left were just a few issues apart and could work with each other.
sounds like they got to loose up some GO billets for more diverse peeps
Like “Colonel Joy”
Im pretty sure a mid-level Roman functionary will join us to assure us this is perfectly normal and nothing for us to worry our pretty little heads over.
You’ve posted this sentence numerous times. What does it mean?
Who do you like in the Preakness?
What many don’t realize is that the top CO’s are held to almost unattainable standards. Any misconduct that can even remotely be attributed to leadership typically results in said leadership being removed for “lack of confidence”.
Analagous to this...Used to be that if a dependent was, say, caught speeding or running a Stop sign, the active duty member was eventually brought to the 1st Sgt or CC and expected to “explain” why he had delinquent dependents. Silly, how is a jet mech, working on a jet during the incident supposed to know what his dependent was doing? Didn’t matter, as the “leader” of the household, it was the member’s responsibility to ensure his dependents were informed and followed the rules.
Thanks for the insight and some background on this “story”.
Well said. We need senior military leaders who will stand up to the progressive “guidance”. For example, “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was working. It still would be if Adm Mullen had stood up for principle.
It looks like the run up to a coup...
Strangely enough, it might be the NSA that saves us... Obama might not have total control of them yet. He’s got his boys in the press attacking them... which means they might not be compromised.
General Scott? Is that you?
Replacing every commander in the military with ardent supporters is what every good socialist dictator does to consolidate power.
Yes, George Mattoon Scott
Who do you like in the Preakness?
Have you ever heard on ECOMCON?
I think we should be concerned with date:
Remember, Remember the 5th of November
See the post 2 minutes and 29 seconds after mine.
We could use him now.
Makes me wonder if there are.. interesting, conversations going on.
Stalin purged his generals too.
Well said and I know this to be true. My beloved Son in Law was fighting in Iraq but my daughter lived in Ft. Carson. My daughter told me that any miscue would reflect on him.
I never wear my seatbelt but I always did when I rode in her car on base
Agreed. When I was on active duty, we had Nike-Hercules batteries at remote sites in Germany. Any unit that failed a Nuclear Surety Inspection likely saw the immediate, and complete turnover of the chain of command, up to group/brigade level.
That meant the battery's officers (5-7), battalion commander and xo (LTC & Major), and Group Commander (Colonel).
Made me thankful to be in a short range ADA unit.
Yep, you are either knew about it and didn’t make e right decision, or you didn’t know about it and you are too stupid to be in charge.
“Bush should have done this when he first took over from Clinton.”
Didn’t Bush get torched relentlessly for firing 8 US attorneys?
Clinton fired all 93 without a peep from the press.
