    That's strictly a matter of opinion. As for Bush, his military commanders really didn't like it when he spoke directly to his general on the ground in Iraq.

    I can't find an illustration or a verbal description of the current chain of command in Afghanistan. I was, however, able to find similar illustrations for other conflicts, including the latest in Iraq, and they confirmed what I believed:

    The President is at the top, the Secretary of Defense comes next, the Joint Chiefs are involved up there somewhere, and beneath all of them comes regional commanders.

    If you can find me a diagram from a reputable source that proves me wrong I'd be interested to see it, but I think given what we know about how similar campaigns have been organized in the last 10-20 years, McCrystal isn't supposed to talk directly to the President.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Because I know the drill, everytime some internet hero like you asks "innocent questions" it gets reduced to calling me a liar, or attacking my service.


    I have given you my history. Why are you still on me?

    Tactical Air Control Party Apprentice (TACP) (Males only)



    The Tactical Air Control Party Apprentice (TACP) is a very physically, mentally and technically demanding job, and it's one of the few true front-line combat jobs in the Air Force. TACPs are rich in combat experience and military tradition. All members of this elite career field wear the black beret emblazoned with the TACP flash and crest. They are highly sought after throughout the world for the overwhelming combat power and lethality they bring to bear on the battlefield. TACPs enjoy the best of what both the Air Force and Army have to offer. If you'd like to be in a job that is both challenging and rewarding, this is the best job in the Air Force! In this career field, initially you may assist a Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) to ensure specific ordnance or bombs are delivered on target. The apprentice level is the gateway to becoming a JTAC who is a specially trained and certified TACP responsible for briefing attack pilots as they enter the target area, ensuring they are aware of the target and friendly positions and other pertinent information. ...
    Hell, even I've heard of these guys. It's Air Force SF.

    Listen, Devil505, could you kindly STFU? I don't question the Rev's service, I just can't understand why someone who has that kind of experience would be okay with what the general did.

    The right way to handle a disagreement like that isn't to question a man's service record, it's to ask him to explain himself.

    Thanks man....


    As to your question. Up that high, I think the chain of command is a bit murky....


    This is why I asked who he has spoken to in that time... And its not McChrystal reaching out to Obama that I am irked about, but the other way around, there are no reports that he has even talked to the secdef who talked to mcChrystal about a-stan.
