First General Ham and today the Admiral of the Middle East task force... I don't like this.

This gets uglier by the day.  The desperate attempts to keep a lid on this until November 7 are failing, it seems to me.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Next we know this lying ba$tard will be posthumously court martialling the two SEALs for disobeying orders and rushing to  the aid of the Ambassador.

Damn this administration  for all time.

  • Your what hurts??
I just got finished backtracking through all of the links on these stories, and so far the speculation about General Ham's departure is just that, speculation.  There is nothing to be found on the net about his replacement other than unsubstantiated rumors.  That said, these unsubstantiated rumors could not be any more disturbing even if they were only half right.

That there is nothing but rumor on this is not surprising.  If these events took place, they happened in one of the most secure areas possible, and the chances of any witnesses saying anything about it at the time or afterward are very slim.  General Ham may eventually have something to say, but I would not be surprised to find out he is under direct orders to keep his mouth shut, and he will do so as long as he remains on active duty.  I would also not be surprised to find out that everyone under his command had been ordered into silence "while the investigation is ongoing".

This is very troubling if indeed it is true, and it makes even bigger liars out of everyone in the entire Administration.  If this is true it is an enormous development, and things don't get any more serious than this.  Nobody will believe that General Ham was fired by anyone other than the President, and the fact it apparently happened during the middle of the crisis underscores that Obama had to be intimately familiar with what was going on.

Where does this end??

Chief, we do know he was fired... Stars and Stripes made an announcement on October 18th about his replacement.  What is the date Jason Chavettez went to Libya and spent a full day with General Ham?  Was it before or after October 18th?  Seems to me it was before.

You know...when I was picturing in my mind's eye, President Obama's facial expressions and general demeanor while these cries for assistance were coming in to him....I pictured an angry man who pounded his fist on the table and said something like this"
