    Jim Garrow: Obama's Litmus Test for Military Officers

    Jim Garrow has helped to rescue over 35,000 infants from China and was a Nobel Peace Prize Nominee
    in 2009. His post on facebook Sunday is quite startling:
    https://www.facebook.com/jim.garrow....51209214442015

    "I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new "litmus test" in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. "The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not". Those who will not are being removed."

    Anonymous hearsay is not exactly the stuff for taking action. This sounds exactly like Reid's assertion that Romney paid no FIT for ten years, based on hearsay from an anonymous "informed source". Rumor, no matter how plausable, is still just rumor. The OP belongs in a conspiracy theory thread, IMHO.

    So someone who doesn't like Obama has started a rumor based on a rumor.

    I'll get right on considering that important.
    I may be wrong.

    This silliness has been going around for years. I think it stems from the concept of refusing to follow unlawful orders, I remember an example used was firing on American citizens, when it was clearly not a lawful order, and when it was. I remember hearing this when Clinton was in office from my far right wing friends and relatives (Waco related).

    Off-putting. No doubt about it. But, think about it. It's not beyond the realm of possibility that our military would be ordered to fire on American citizens. I can't think of why any military person would say they wouldn't ever fire on them if the circumstances stood the test.

    There are certain instances that firing on Americans would be perfectly legitimate.

    The Obama administration has publicly admitted to having ordered someone to fire upon and kill an American citizen in Yemen. Why make up this kind of conspiracy nonsense when the truth is plenty damning enough?

    Was the citizen a threat to fellow citizens or military members, or a wanted felon fugative of the US? If yes, then he was a legitimate target. If not, not so much.

    We don't know if he was a threat or not, because he was never put on trial and administration has not even bothered to release the justification for why he was killed.
