Obama is destroying our Military,
One General / Admiral at a time!
What happened to General Jack Ham and Admiral Gaouette on that fateful night of Nov. 11th 2012 in Benghazi? Who made the decisions to fire these commanders? WHY? My opinion it was Valerie Jarred.
…”General Ham 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 ‘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…’
What happened to General Stanley McChrystal, and Maj. General Peter Fuller, and General Allan.
Do you know how difficult it is to even be considered for the position of a 1 Star General? This is a life commitment, and to be considered an honorable position, you have to be damn near perfect. What’s really going on here? Why are they ‘cleaning’ house?
America should be VERY CONCERNED right now. It’s just too bad that all our focus is on the government shutdown and raising the debt limit.

This is Obama’s War on America’s Generals
What happened to General Mattis
General Mattis, the commander of United States Central Command, Petraeus’s old job, was booted out without even a personal phone call for being too hawkish about Iran.
General Petraeus met the same fate as General McKiernan and General McChrystal after alienating Obama and the CIA top brass which enmeshed him in a scandal.
Within two months after the Benghazi attack, four senior U.S. military “Flag Officers” were purged:
• Gen. Ham, on October 18.
• Adm. Gaouette, on October 27.
• Gen. Petraeus, on November 9.
• Gen. Allen, on November 13.
Col. James Christmas served this spring as both the commander of the Marine Corps’ new crisis-response unit, Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response, and as the 22nd MEU commander, he was relieved of his command in July.
So what should we make of all this?
Is it all just coincidence or something more sinister?
Ann Barnhardt, in her blog of Nov. 13, 2012, calls it Obama’s “night of the long knives.” The last step in Hitler’s quest for total, dictatorial power was the purging of the German military of any factions that were in any way autonomous and not 100% loyal to him, specifically the SA (Sturmabteilung or Storm Detachment). The SA was run by Ernst Rohm. On June 30, 1934, the “Night of the Long Knives” was executed when Hitler had Rohm and the rest of the SA leaders killed. Hitler publicly explained that the purge was executed because of sexual perversion in the ranks of the SA who were “plotting” against him.
Writing for Veterans Today, Gordon Duff has a provocative take on the firing of the four military officers:
…”The decision [to fire Admiral Gaouette] was made based on a conversation with the Secretary of Defense who, at the end of the talk, believed Gaouette was part of a group of military officers who have been under suspicion for planning a “Seven Days in May” type overthrow of the US government if President Obama is re-elected.
This is not conjecture, dozens of key officers face firing, hundreds are under investigation, all with direct ties to extremist elements in the Republican Party and the Israeli lobby.
Reports received are sourced at the highest levels of the Pentagon and indicate that the administration has been aware of these plans for months.
Whatever the truth, one thing of which we can be sure is that the firings of three generals and an admiral have something (or everything) to do with the Benghazi attack”…
Maj. Kale Mosley an Air Force Academy graduate and a pilot who has flown more than 250 combat missions was recently relieved of his duty. He deployed to Libya in the summer of 2011 with 30 hours notice. When he returned, the military immediately sent him to Iraq. Just as he was boarding the plane for Iraq, the Air Force gave him his walking papers, effective Nov. 30. Maj. Mosley, the father of a toddler and a newborn, will not receive a pension or long-term health-care benefits for his family.
There was up until 2011, a law that allowed officer who left the military short of twenty years to get prorated pension and health care benefits, but it expired in 2001.

Obama’s Attack on Families of Fallen Soldiers
October 11, 2013 By Arnold Ahlert 17 Comments
The Obama administration’s despicable attempts to make the government shutdown as painful as possible for Americans has hit bottom. The Department of Defense (DoD) has been more than willing to deny death benefits to the families of fallen soldiers.
“Valerie Jarret – …”After We Win This Election,
It’s Our Turn. Payback Time!”…
Valerie Bowman Jarrett is the Senior Advisor to Obama and Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs. The reality is; that Valerie is the “Puppet Master” behind the scenes, pulling Obama’s strings. Valerie is the one that gave the command to “Stand Down”.
