Obama firing top military leaders
Over the past two years Obama has been purging (firing) top military leaders. He has also put an anti-military person, Chuck Hagel, in-charge of our military as the Secretary of Defense.
“They are purging everyone and if you want to keep your job — just keep your mouth shut.”
Nine of our most senior commanding generals have been fired by the Obama administration this year.
General Petraeus and General McChrystal were forced to resign in 2011 and 2010, respectively. These were the US’s most highly decorated and admired military heros! ABC’s story above also states 16 other senior military brass were fired too. (General Carter Hamm, Vice Adm Tim Giardina, and others)
Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, an outspoken critic of the Obama administration, said the White House fails to take action or investigate its own, but finds it easy to fire military commanders “who have given their lives for their country.”
MG Vallely is referring to the Obama Administration not seeking justice for the Benghazi attacks that killed 4 embassy personnel, the IRS Targeting Scandal, the Fast & Furious Scandal where a US border agent was killed with weapons given to Mexican cartels by the US government, and many other issues plaguing the Obama Administration.
Here’s what a former Army commander said on FoxNews about the purge:
A Pentagon official who asked to remain nameless because they were not authorized to speak on the matter said even “young officers, down through the ranks have been told not to talk about Obama or the politics of the White House. They are purging everyone and if you want to keep your job — just keep your mouth shut.”
The US has NEVER seen a purging like this of military commanders.
Secretary of Defense Hagel is proposing a 1.8% pay cut for troops, a continued reduction in the number of troops, reducing the number of military bases, and cutting benefits to the military’s insurance system called Tricare.
In 2013 when going through the selection process for Secretary of Defense, he was strongly opposed due to a very poor track record of supporting our troops and Israel, a top US ally. A point he’s now proving.
Shouldn’t a Defense Secretary be pro-military and fight for their cause?
Under the Obama Administration our military has seen over a 25% budget reduction that has led to the smallest Army the US has had since 1940, the smallest Navy since 1915, and the smallest Air Force since 1960. Our military is weak!
So why are these top military officials being purged? The official reasons range from mishandling nukes, to sexual misconduct, to having illegal poker chips. Most who are close to this situation believe the charges for dismal have been trumped up so that the punish does not fit the “crime”.
As noted in the Fox News video above, that expert stated he believe Obama is “flexing his muscle” with the military. It is no secret military leaders often disagree with his approach to Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and a list of other issues. So, the belief is they have been let go because they are not “yes” men.
The new replacements for these men who have been purged are considered pro-Obama leaders. There are numerous stories of a potential Martial Law within the United States during Obama’s administration that would likely involve large civilian armed riots.
Over the past four years there has been an increase within the military training programs preparing our soldiers to fire upon US citizens if this occurs. Numerous laws forbid the use of our US military in domestic violence issues.
These have been men who have been purged have dedicated most of their lives serving our military and our country and who have sometimes put themselves in harms way risking their lives.
Then they come home to a leader who has a strong distaste for our military and who has used his entire length in office to dismember the strength of our armed forces.
