Undermining President Obama

Undermining President Obama
Posted By: J. A. Faulkerson on December 02, 2009

I hate that more American soldiers (30,000) are being sent to Afghanistan, but it feels good knowing their time there is coming to an end. My hope, however, is President Obama puts a clamp on his generals. By going public with their views, they were being insubordinate to President Obama, the Commander in Chief. Comments about needs should have came from President Obama.



Because this reportedly is the first time a military general has made public comments without consulting with the White House, I question McCrystal's respect for President Obama. He knows that President Obama never served in the military; therefore, he feels justified in going to the public before convening with his boss. If he were employed by me, he would be standing in the unemployment line.

What do you think?

I look forward to reading your responses.

Jeffery A. Faulkerson, MSSW

Maybe once we extricate ourselves from this one we can look closer at the means to avoid this immoral act of war in the future.

War in any shape, form, or fashion is wrong. Supporting war is supporting DEATH.

What we need to realize is the imperialism that leads to our having enemies rather than friends.
