    Obama admin. told wary military officials to ‘suck it up and salute’ on Taliban release:

    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..."<

    The WH's inner circle must be the most shortsighted collection of incompetents ever assembled. Seize on an opportunity to diffuse a major scandal in the news cycle by.....creating another major scandal. Stuff is just baffling.

    It's called incompetence.

    There's no excuse for Obama being given a second chance back in November of 2012. It was no secret by April of 2009 that the job of POTUS was larger than Obama could handle.

    They should suck it up and salute. Sorry, but the President is the Commander in Chief. Their job is to listen to his orders.

    Could there be a movie deal in the making of this historical moment?

    I find it hard to be-leave or take the word of someone that don't have the guts to put their name on something.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    There could be a bright side here. If Obama ever directs the military to confiscate our guns or breakup a major protest somewhere, they might tell him to go **** himself.

    The job of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is not to obey the Incompetent Commander in Chief but to advise him.

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

    Well, that what Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said.
