I read about this earlier....thanks, Lancey.
The taint of UCI while Mattis was convening authority in the Haditha matter will never rub off.
A man should not be defined by one set of decisions. That wouldn’t be fair. However, Haditha looms large.
The price of that bowl of pottage was acceptance by the political elite within DoD, and it is that same elite that is responsible for Mattis’ demise, if some stories are believed.
Listening to McChrystal on TV with Hannity, and carefully considering his “all carefulness responses” in some instances, and his acknowledgement he voted for Obama in 2008, I’d say that McChrystal is another Wesley Clark. It really surprises me because his brother, a retired Chaplain and acquaintance during one tour of mine, was such a truly conservative Christian.
I wonder how much of his soul that Mattis had to sell, because he sold some of it over Haditha.
