“Commander in Chief” shows off on campaign trail sporting military jacket, nametag

I say again, it should be ripped off his body.  He is not worthy to wear it for he is neither military nor commander in chief.

Yesterday in Wisconsin, wearing his Air Force One military jacket with the name tag “Barack Obama, Commander in Chief”
Disgrace!

Well, where was the commander in chief when American citizens needed him?  I think it would go better for him if he were sleeping because the other alternative is, as is reported, he was watching the Benghazi attack from the Situation Room and did nothing.  They called for help and help never came.

The administration keeps stalling, saying there is an on-going investigation into what happened, when it is obvious that is a lie because the scene of the crime is abandoned with documents and other crucial evidence left behind 6 weeks later.

BENGHAZI, Libya — More than six weeks after the shocking assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi — and nearly a month after an FBI team arrived to collect evidence about the attack – the battle-scarred, fire-damaged compound where Ambassador Chris Stevens and another Foreign Service officer lost their lives on Sept. 11 still holds sensitive documents and other relics of that traumatic final day, including drafts of two letters worrying that the compound was under “troubling” surveillance and complaining that the Libyan government failed to fulfill requests for additional security.

When we visited on Oct. 26 to prepare a story for Dubai based Al Aan TV, we found not only Stevens’s personal copy of the Aug. 6 New Yorker, lying on remnants of the bed in the safe room where Stevens spent his final hours, but several ash-strewn documents beneath rubble in the looted Tactical Operations Center, one of the four main buildings of the partially destroyed compound. Some of the documents — such as an email from Stevens to his political officer in Benghazi and a flight itinerary sent to Sean Smith, a U.S. diplomat slain in the attack — are clearly marked as State Department correspondence.Others are unsigned printouts of messages to local and national Libyan authorities. The two unsigned draft letters are both dated Sept. 11 and express strong fears about the security situation at the compound on what would turn out to be a tragic day. They also indicate that Stevens and his team had officially requested additional security at the Benghazi compound for his visit — and that they apparently did not feel it was being provided.

Obama shakes up the military in October

Looks like obama is exacting revenge? Looking for scapegoats? Since it is impossible for the child president to take responsiblity for anything (except something he thinks helps him) he continues his cover-up.  I am counting at least three military reassignments in October.

Let’s see:

General Allen said though willing to fight, they were not willing to be murdered, referencing insider attacks in Afghanistan.  Replaced.

General Ham decided to try to rescue the Americans under attack in Benghazi, regardless of “StandDown” order.  Apprehended.

Rear Admiral Gaouett, Commander of air craft carrier USS John C. Stennis strike group in the Middle East.  Sent back to home port under allegations of “inappropriate judgment”.

Heads are rolling and it looks like a pattern is forming.

Mutiny?

There is one main head that needs to roll and we’ll take care of that on Nov. 6.

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.”General Joseph Dunford has been nominated as NATO’s new commander in Afghanistan.

U.S. President Barack Obama’s nomination will replace General John Allen, who will now assume the Supreme Allied Commander Europe and Commander of U.S. European Command.

****.

The information I heard today was that General [Carter] Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.

General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.

The story continues that now General [David] Rodiguez would take General Ham’s place as the head of Africon.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command and Marine Lt. Gen. John Paxton to succeed Gen. Joseph Dunford as assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Thursday.

Both appointments must be confirmed by the Senate.

WASHINGTON — The Navy said Saturday it is replacing the admiral in command of an aircraft carrier strike group in the Middle East, pending the outcome of an internal investigation into undisclosed allegations of inappropriate judgment.

Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette is being sent back to the USS John C. Stennis’ home port at Bremerton, Wash., in what the Navy called a temporary reassignment.

Obama’s effect on military families – in their own words:
