    But Obama don't trust the military and ignores them.

    Well, that what Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said.
    Advise, sure. However, when the decision is made...he's their commander. Chain of command.

    And he is doing more damage to re enlistment than any other in recent memory. And that's saying a lot.

    But at least you know if you leave your post in a war zone, for whatever reason, Obama will come get you.

    As he should, but not for a parade. Maybe a drone would have been a better decision.

    Then maybe the military shouldn't have imprisoned hundreds of innocent people at Guantanamo and manipulated the tribunals until they got the results they wanted. The military hasn't exercised good judgement in its classification of who is dangerous and who isn't.

    Until he issues an un-lawful order, or violates the chain of command.

    Chain of command??? Is not the president the big cheese in charge? I am pretty sure the chain of command is his do with as he sees fit, to use or ignore at his pleasure. Everyone under his command serves at his pleasure, to be removed and replaced at will.

    Only comment is, who's surprised ? Even former Sec. of Defense Gates in his book says that the Obama administration refuses to listen to the military.

    Obama and those with in his incompetent administration hate the military and Barack Obama is a national security risk.

    >" The Obama administration sent a message for years to wary military and intelligence officials who believed the release of the Taliban Five would come back to haunt the U.S.: ‘Suck it up and salute.’


    Mullah Mohammad Fazl, Mullah Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq, Khairullah Khairkhwa and Mohammed Nabi Omari were all deemed in 2008 to be at “high risk” for returning to the battlefield if released, but that did not stop the White House from releasing them in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl over the weekend.


    “Officials in the Pentagon and intelligence communities had successfully fought off release of the five men in the past,” Time reported Tuesday. “This [sudden release] was out of the norm,” he continued. “There was never [a] conversation.”

    “Obama’s move was an ultimate victory for those at the White House and the State Department who had previously argued the military should ‘suck it up and salute,’ says the official familiar with the debate,” reported Time..."<

    Even with his photo ops lately with our military Obama hates and holds our military in disdain.. I have said this my times. Even the liberal Senator Feinstein has spoken up against Obama on this issue.
