The President's Very Real Military Problem

The president of the United States is the commander in chief over all branches of the military. It is a historic time, given that no military member goes public to speak negatively about the ultimate commander.

But now, with the scandal in full bloom, after the administration's smokescreen about what triggered the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and after the president's tepidly received speech at West Point announcing diplomacy will replace military responses henceforth, the time for silence is over.

Now career military personnel are speaking out through gritted teeth, insisting they speak for active-duty personnel who cannot talk without being punished.

The era of silence changed after President Barack Obama's super-secret prisoner swap -- five "high-risk" Taliban prisoners from Gitmo in exchange for one U.S. solider held for nearly five years in Afghanistan. The fact that the soldier, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, walked away from his unit leaving a note saying he was "disillusioned with the Army," did not support his commander in chief's mission in Afghanistan and was "leaving to start a new life" left military types stunned that the president would stage a Rose Garden ceremony with Bergdahl's parents.

It is a court martialable offense to speak out against the POTUS.
No good military member wants that on their record or the very real jail time they'd get for doing it.

Now, sine he has been firing many high level military people they can now speak out and hopefully more will.

No good or intelligent leader disrespects his military people like Obama.
Though many Democrat "leaders" have made a habit of doing so....

I suppose a world without honor goes along with a world without shame.

As in all of the other bullshit that surrounds this man this just stinks.

I really do not believe this was about Bergdahl at all.

This about Gitmo.

Also, the Taliban did not have him, the Haqqani did.....the Haqqani are not really interested in Taliban prisoners......

They are however interested in Money and they are loosely affiliated with AQ.....
