This is surreal to believe a major military hero might have made such a statement to someone so unknown. The fear fodder immobilizes. Can’t think of a better ploy to set us rubes off into a tailspin. Let’s not be baited.
Heroes, generally, will speak out loud, in the worst of circumstances.
To RitaOK: re “Heroes general will speak out oloud, in the worst of circumstances”.
In the old days, maybe. Oliver North. Gen. McArthur? Who else since than? Powell? Clark? Schwarzkopf? McChrystall? Zinni? Dempsey?
Obama’s military theme is “We don’t need another hero.”
Unfortunately, he is getting that.
