Gallup poll on who won debate: Romney 72% – Obama 20%

Gen. Allen removed from his afghan command

General John Allen, Commander in Afghanistan, in  recent days has voiced frustration about the lethal “insider” attacks by Afghan soldiers and police that have killed 51 U.S. and coalition troops this year.

“I’m mad as hell about them, to be honest with you,” he said, in an interview with “60 Minutes” scheduled to be broadcast Sunday. “It reverberates everywhere across the United States. You know, we’re willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign, but we’re not willing to be murdered for it.”

And for telling the truth, not suprisingly, our one-term child president removes him from his command.

The top U.S. military commander in Afghanistan is being transferred and another Marine general will take over the war effort early next year as the United States and its allies shrink their combat role against the still-potent insurgency.

The White House plans to nominate Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, to replace Gen. John Allen. http://alturl.com/cyuvb
