    Not at all.....I was merely being direct. You were the one making personal attacks, not me.

    Yeah, so Google would have me believe. Dammit.

    Why on Earth would there be reports of that sort of thing? I mean, seriously, what says that the President and the SecDef can't or don't have private meetings about this sort of thing?

    From reading Reagan's diaries, it seems like the President meets privately with his advisors on a regular basis, even in times of peace. What on earth leads you to believe Obama isn't speaking to his Secretary during a time of war, for crying out loud?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    There was and is still talk that TACP should be considered "special forces". We went through as many schools as most SF types do.

    Fine, maybe they are meeting privatley. But think about it. What do you think the soldier in theater is thinking sitting there taking fire with no clear mission?

    What makes you think that the soldier in theater has the perception that they have no clear mission?

    They have commanding officers who give them orders and they carry them out. I would assume that beyond that, they're familiar with the PR which tells us all that they're there to secure Afghanistan and get it up and running under a representative government duly elected by the people.

    What more do they need to know?

    Two reasons.

    We felt the same way when Bush I wasn't sure if we were going into Bagdhad or not.

    #2, from people I know in Afghanistan which is the impetus for my recent tirades on this topic.

    Do you think they just accept that or do you think they do that critical thinking sometimes?

    They were neither. I was just letting you know the way a man would question my service.
