Yup. He be a goner for questioning The One. But, then again, how high has he climbed up the promotion ladder for supporting Obama? Over 200 officers that did not follow the Dimocrat party line were sacked. Those that kissed his skinny butt got promoted.
So, general, resign if you don’t get permission to close the borders. If you don’t resign, you are a putrid co-conspirator along with others in this maladministration. Does the word “traitor” come to mind?
If I read the article correctly his command does not include our southern border.

You should know better than to tell the truth get published on a national security discussion web site. His Majesty is not be pleased with this sort of truth-telling.
“Over 200 officers that did not follow the Dimocrat party line were sacked. Those that kissed his skinny butt got promoted.”
Just like farging Argentina, or the “Democratic Republic of the” Congo.
If good men ever again occupy the Capitol and the White House, they will have to call hundreds of thousands of veterans out of retirement to get the military straightened out.
