    Well, you can bet McCrystal won't be applying for a greeters job at Wal Mart.
    I wish him well. Once more, telling the truth can sometimes hurt. I feel sure the troops would still have followed him into hell! Even without the "O" boys blessing.

    Remeber when the Justice Department told local cops to watch out for returning soldiers?

    Given his record the General is obviously a subversive.

    Really kind of ironic don't you think? After all he voted for this hope and change. And he got just that,little hope and a change of careers. He reminds me of Colin Powell. No General with any sense would have voted for Hussein over McCain. And McCain was not the answer either. Just the lesser of two evils.

    THIS IS A MUST, MUST READ BY ALL!!!!



    McChrystal knew exactly what he was doing.



    .






    Folks, just to share.

    I first met Stan McCrystal in 1994 when he was Commander of the 2nd
    Battalion, 82nd Airborne Division and I was Installation Maintenance
    Officer for Fort Bragg, NC. He was my largest Customer. He went on
    to Command the 2nd Batallion, 75 Ranger Regiment and was in and out
    of Ft. Bragg over the next five years while doing the country's
    business mostly in the Mid-East. In 2000 he was promoted to BG and
    was Deputy Commander, 82 Airborne Division at Ft. Bragg. I'd see him
    off and on at the Officer's Club, local functions, and military
    events over the 1994-2000 period. I went to XVIII Airborne Corps
    Headquarters as Deputy Director of Garrison Strategic Planning in Mar
    1996 and stayed there until I retired in Mar 2001. I had the
    unwritten duty of Gunslinger for the Corps Commander if any Unit was
    having problems with Civilian employees or Installation Support. In
    that capacity, I worked a couple of problems for BG McCrystal. He
    attended my retirement reception when I retired.

    Stan McCrystal is no fool. He was always outspoken, but not
    reckless. Anything he did, vis a vis the Afganistan Rumble, he did
    with forethought, staff advice and probably Gen Dave Petraeus' tacit
    (not their first rodeo), if not express, approval. I believe the
    last shot has yet to be fired. Woody, Rich both of you knew and
    worked with him. I think this article is close, anyhow good read.

    Charlie

    Wait until you get to the part about the Combat Restraint Medal and
    Obama's Rules of Engagement (ROE), you won't believe it. The Vietnam guys that were there at the end know all too well about the ROE. All you socialists who are in love with our beloved President should be happy about the widows and orphans you are creating from the ranks of our Armed Forces. You can't support the military and support Obama at the same time. The one cancels out the other.

    This article says that McChrystal knew exactly what he was doing and
    opted to go out this way to focus on the insanity currently going on
    in the White House. I think the general had had enough.

    The General and the Community Organizer

    by Paul R. Hollrah

    Channel-surfing from ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN through MSNBC
    and Fox News, the inside-the-beltway pundits had a field day trying
    to get inside the heads of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, General Stanley
    McChrystal, and McChrystal’s top aides. The one thing common to all
    of the analyses, by the most famous and highly-paid talking heads in
    the Western World, was that they are all wrong dead wrong. What is
    certain is that they all owe General McChrystal and his senior aides
    an apology for assuming that they are lame-brained numbskulls.

    The facts of the McChrystal case are not in dispute.
    General McChrystal and his senior officers allowed a reporter for
    Rolling Stone Magazine, Michael Hastings, to have almost
    unprecedented access during an extended stay in Paris. The extended
    stay was due, in part, to an excess of atmospheric ash from Iceland's
    Eyjafjallajokull volcano, keeping the McChrystal party grounded for
    days.

    In an interview with CNN, Hastings reported that he had a
    tape recorder in his hand most of the time and that McChrystal was
    very aware that his comments would find their way into print. He
    said, McChrystal and his people set no ground rules for their
    conversations, although they did ask that some parts of their
    conversations were off the record.” Hastings subsequently published
    a lengthy profile of General McChrystal on June 22, titled, The
    Runaway General.

    As Hastings wrote in his profile, McChrystal thought that
    Obama looked “uncomfortable and intimidated by the roomful of
    military brass during their first meeting. Of their second meeting,
    an advisor to McChrystal quoted the general as saying that it was a
    10-minute photo op.” He went on to say, Obama clearly didn't know
    anything about (McChrystal), who he was. Here's the guy who's going
    to run his f_ _ _ing war, but he didn't seem very engaged. The Boss
    was pretty disappointed.”

    As General McChrystal flew from Afghanistan to Washington to
    face Obama in the Oval Office, the almost unanimous opinion of the
    talking heads was that the comments made by McChrystal and his staff
    were off the cuff and inadvertent. But to believe that is to totally
    ignore who these men are.

    General McChrystal and his top officers are not simple-minded,
    knuckle-dragging brutes. To the contrary, they are intelligent
    thoughtful, highly educated, patriots…graduates of West Point
    and other fine universities…who are dedicated to duty, honor, and
    country. To think that such men would be so careless as to speak
    unflatteringly of Obama, Biden, and other top administration figures,
    in the presence of a reporter for a notoriously left wing
    publication, defies logic…at the very least. To think that men who
    are trained to be careful and deliberate in everything they do, could
    do something so careless and so unguarded is simply beyond
    comprehension.

    I would argue that McChrystal and his aides knew exactly what they were doing. From the day that he became the handpicked “spear carrier” for Obama’s unique brand of warfare… playing at being Commander in Chief while playing to his far left constituency… McChrystal’s life had been one of constant frustration. After telling Obama exactly how many troops he needed to carry out his mission, Obama dithered for months before deciding to give him just half the troops he requested. McChrystal could not have been happy about that.

    The Obama team insisted on new Rules of Engagement designed
    to reduce collateral damage (civilian casualties). Obama's ROE
    required that U.S. troops must be able to see the enemy with weapon
    in hand before they were allowed to return fire. One videotape
    circulated on the Internet showed a platoon of Marines pinned down by
    enemy sniper fire. But since the enemy was firing from some distance
    behind the open window of a building, the Marines could not actually
    see the weapon being fired. Although they were taking deadly fire,
    they were prohibited by the ROE from putting small arms fire or an
    RPG through the window opening.

    Under Obama’s politically correct ROE, our soldiers and
    Marines were required to fight with one hand tied behind their backs.
    McChrystal could not have been happy about that.

    A strict new interrogation policy, dictated by Attorney General
    Eric Holder, required that prisoners must be delivered to an
    Interrogation Center within twenty-four hours of being captured or
    be released. A great deal of actionable intelligence was lost as a
    result and battle-hardened enemy fighters were returned to the field
    to kill Americans. McChrystal must have found that to be
    incomprehensible.

    But the greatest insult to our troops in the field, and to the officers
    who lead them, may be a new battlefield medal designed by the
    Obama team. It is called the Courageous Restraint Medal and is
    awarded to soldiers and Marines who demonstrate uncommon restraint
    in combat by not firing their weapons even when they feel threatened
    by the enemy. Would we be surprised to learn that the preponderance
    of these medals were awarded posthumously? McChrystal must have
    found that to be an insanity.

    I suggest that, having his best military judgments subjected to
    the White House political sieve for nearly a year and a half,
    McChrystal decided that he’d had enough. And when he announced
    to his senior staff that he was prepared to retire they decided to
    push back… to make the most of a bad situation. It was clear that,
    if McChrystal were to simply take off his uniform and walk away, his
    retirement would be page-twenty news for a day or two before the
    mainstream media and the American people forgot all about him.

    They had to make the most of his retirement because it provided
    a one-time opportunity to show the American people, as well as
    our enemies and our allies, that the man who claims the title of
    Commander in Chief of the U.S. military does not command the respect
    of our men and women in uniform. To make the most of that
    opportunity they had to choose their messenger very carefully.

    They knew that, by openly showing their disrespect for Obama
    in front of just any newsman, they may not attract the attention
    they desired. Like any astute observer of the MSM, they knew
    knew that most reporters would turn on their own mothers if it meant
    a good story. But they could not take a chance that a mainstream
    media reporter might suffer a rare pang of conscience when confronted
    with the prospect of ruining the careers of some of the most senior
    officers in the War on Terror. They had to fix the odds as much as
    possible in their favor so they chose to use Michael Hastings and
    Rolling Stone Magazine.

    During the long hours that General McChrystal was in the air
    between Kabul and Washington, Obama knew that he had just two
    choices…both bad. He could declare McChrystal to be an
    irreplaceable asset in the war effort, give him a public reprimand,
    and send him back to Kabul. Or he could fire McChrystal, sending a
    clear message that, at least in his own mind, he was the Commander
    in Chief.

    In the former case, he was certain to appear weak and ineffectual…
    a man not totally in charge. In the latter case, he might
    at least win a few rave reviews from the Kool-Ade drinkers in
    the mainstream media. He chose the latter of the two options.

    But what is now lost in all of the hand-wringing and speculation
    is the fact that McChrystal and his people have succeeded in
    doing exactly what they set out to do. They wanted to plant the
    seed in the minds of the American people that Obama is not up to the
    task of being Commander in Chief and that he does not command the
    respect of the men and women of the uniformed services… from the
    newest Private E-1 up to the top four-star generals and admirals.
    That seed is now firmly planted and it cannot be unplanted.

    From this day forward, no one will have to tell the American
    people that Stanley McChrystal is a true warrior, a man's man,
    and that Barack Obama is nothing more than a…Community
    Organizer.

    Well done, General!

    In light of all of Obamas blunders, misgivings, lack of ability, and seemingly anti American actions, wouldn't it seem to be right for a temporary military take over of our Country? Again temporary! Long enough to weed out the progressives in the House and Senate, then restore to the office of President a true conservative Patriot that would put the concerns of America and it's citizens first. To restore America, to the way the signers of the Declaration meant this Country to be. Bulge.
