  • Your what hurts??

Really?  Are you (or any of the rest of you for that matter....) familiar with any of the specific reasons why each of these senior officers was "fired"??  What if they were relieved for very good reasons, or are all of you just opposed to this because it is happening on Obama's watch??

Just curious.

I'm quite sure they were all fired for very good reason according to someone! I just doubt that most objecitve Americans would agree with the reasoning of that someone!

In the same token that General Petraeus' laptop was seeded through by NSA/FBI. It was a mere coincidence in timing I am sure.

Remember they said Patrick Kennedy gave a stand-down order. How ludicrous! This is unheard of!  But it's okay it's Obama.
