Nice going, McRaven. Next time one of your journalism buddies approaches you with cash for taking a public shot at your commander, maybe you'll think twice.

I assume he is protecting his military retirement check by resigning.

Actions have consequences. McRaven should know that.

“If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken.”

Is anyone in Washington today as consistently correct as McCarthy was? He accused Soviet spies of being Soviet spies.

Give it up, idiot. You are obsessed with Trump, but should be obsessed with what the left has done to this country.

He gave a fabulous, inspirational speech at UT a couple of years ago but he must have been an Obama lickspittle to get those stars.

Yeah, that was SO EMBARRASSING

What WAS “embarrassing” was the totally unprofessional conduct of Deep State Muzzie Traitor Brennan

You two must be butt bois

“Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation,” McRaven wrote.

A perfect description of Obama’s presidency.

So another loser outs himself.

Note to McCravin for attention:Next time you throw out the McCarthy smear maybe look back at who actually used those tactics.

Perhaps you could ask James Rosen and his family about what The Kenyan Prince and his band of Thugs in the Just-us Department did to them.

Is this guy insane?
