He is the first Non-American Officer to hold this position. Freepers with Military knowledge, is this significant in a bad way?

Why would anybody but an American serve as the US army chief of staff?

The WSJ describes it as a “rare sign of cooperation”. Specious description. I say this is a sign of US submission, given the US leadership at present.

Obama is not an America, but an Indonesian,
which is why the borders are open,
al qaeda fill in within BOTH the CIA and DOD,
and the military will soon be al Qaeda and Hamas.

America is so screwed, thanks to the selfserving
EXEMPT Congress which could not give a damn.

Makes sense, since we have a non-American president.

Is he required to join the US Army or is he allowed to remain a German Army officer?

I agree. It appears strange, but not surprising. I’m surprised he’s not Muslim.

I agree. Barry doesn’t care about American Citizens nor does he work for us.
