Retired Marine Gen. John Allen has endorsed Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee's campaign announced Monday.
Allen, a four-star general who led coalition forces in Afghanistan, acknowledged the endorsement as a "very personal decision."
"Through 37 years of service in the U.S. Marine Corps, I saw some of the toughest challenges that our nation faces around the world, and I know that America has the power to meet those challenges. However, it requires continued leadership and engagement in the world, continued partnership with our allies, and a clear understanding of our adversaries," Allen said in a statement released through the Clinton campaign. "It requires patience and a deep comprehension of the international landscape to make smart decisions about when and how to use military force as well as an understanding that other tools of American power such as diplomacy and development aid - that will [keep] armed forces out of harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary. And it requires a leader who wants to understand these complex issues and seek advice and counsel. Hillary Clinton is all of those things."

Is making Marines put their uniforms on and take them off repeatedly due strictly to PR considerations before they ran out of time and luck a patient, smart decision?
He certainly IS a traitor. I wonder what she’s got on him.
How much did she pay him?
What was your price, Gen. Allen?
With all the respect and admiration the Marine Corps is due, the fact this ‘person’ chooses to endorse Hillary Clinton under the aegis of ‘retired Marine General’ sh!ts all over the corps, frankly.
Every marine in this country should be ashamed of him.
What a jerk
Chesty Puller must be spinning in his grave.
Did he just come out of a Coma ?
Gen. Allen wants his Marines to be Hillary’s cocktail waiters again.
Gen. Allen wants a top position in Hillary’s administration, or money for a fancy new summer home, or maybe both.
Ah. So they showed you the photos?
Never heard of this Allen; Reagan had a Richard V. Allen, not same one.
Nixon was impeached for lying about a burgarly. Hillary has rigged an election and will likely be President. It is hard to think of a more significant example of how corrupt the US government has become.
You may have meant “traitor” metaphorically, but you may just be correct in a literal sense.
As he is leading Obama’s fake war on ISIS, a literal charge of treason probably has the substance to stick.
Sounds like a typical “Perfumed Prince”, like Weasely Clark.
I’m not a Marine and I’m ashamed.Glad he’s retired.
Once the stars go on the shoulders they’re more politician than war fighters. He’s probably ok with using the military as a sandbox for social experiments but doesn’t want to admit it.
He doesn’t represent MY marine Corps.
What a cuck. I don’t care how many “stars” he has.
Yes, they universally support Clinton.
