Hagel is the best we will get out of this President.
I and dont think you see a better person that Obana will nominate.
Opposing Obama and gertting an even worse Defense Secretary is not an option in my view. The troops deserve the best they can get and given this president it is Hagel....
Or we could give them nobody, unless and until they choose somebody who hasn’t been bought out by foreign interests.
Either we mean business in protecting our troops, or we don’t.
But I think it was revealed a long time ago that we don’t give a rip for our troops, when we let a decorated military surgeon go to jail and lose his livelihood because the military would not verify whether the combat orders he received were lawful. We now know they weren’t, because only Joe Biden can “act as President” according to the 20th Amendment, given that Obama has no legally-established birth facts (according to the HI state registrar). We don’t even know how old Obama is; there’s no legally-valid record which tells us that.
Lt. Col Lakin cared whether his combat orders were lawful. Nobody else within the military or the civilian hierarchy cared one bit whether our officers are being forced to violate their oath to protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.
At this point I think the whole establishment has sold our military down the river. I suppose a person could say the military guys have already been screwed so many times, what’s one more time.... but I am disgusted with the whole thing. They deserve MUCH, MUCH better than this. And the only way it’s ever going to get better is if somebody stands up and says “Never again!”
