    Yeah, because the President decides what every single army unit will wear every day.

    um is this that bad?
    I'm sure the commanding officer of the troops involved isn't nearly as smart as the Right wing bashers on this forum are about these things.

    They're fighting it over there so you don't have to fight it over here. Or something. How did it go again?
    Don't work out, work in.

    How are they going to be exposed?

    Most of the smart commanders have already been purged from the Officers Corps and replaced with PC yes men.

    What a stupid comment - and one that cannot possibly be backed up by anything other than right wing hate site sources, who take every officer's demotion or replacement as an effort by Obama to replace them with yes men. You have proclaimed yourself as smarter than the commanding officer of the troops assigned to this duty. What's your military experience again? How many troops did you command in combat?

    You are asking a question that these fools are unable to answer. Therefore they will ignore it. It's how they roll.

    Why was General Mattis fired ? Why didn't Obama even have the balls to call Gen. Mattis that he was being fired ?

    Can you explain why Boehner cried that Obama waited too long yet Krauthammer initially praised the President before he got the memo from Ailes/Rove to play politics with Ebola as he and the GOP have done with beheadings .

    Obama appointing a political hack who has no medical experience as the Ebola Czar sounds pretty political.
