The Obama administration, which has fired no one over scandals such as its Fast and Furious Mexican gun-running operation, its criminal negligence in the terrorist attack on our Benghazi diplomatic mission, or the use of the IRS to target and intimidate political foes, seems to have a curious obsession lately about ethics and competence in the U.S. military.

"President Abraham Lincoln was famous for firing his generals until he found the likes of Grant and Sherman, commanders ruthlessly committed to victory and supremacy over adversaries. Somehow we doubt President Obama has quite the same agenda"

So what is Obama's agenda with the military?
There are other stories popping up on the web about this.
Is this just normal leftwing miltary revulsion or something else?

"Obama's Curious Purge Of The Military Continues"

Based on a few examples of wackos in uniform I remember hearing about during Squirt's Administration, it seemed that a purge of the US military was long overdue. Recent reports of a record number of sexual assaults against our men and women in uniform in 2012 have not improved my impression of the fitness of the top military brass. So, keep up the good work, Mr. President!

I agree. Why haven't BATF supervisors been fired? Why haven't rogue agents and supervisors in the IRS been fired as well for their misdeeds? Already that one fool woman "took the fifth" during testimony before Congress. That says to me that we now need a Grand Jury and an independent prosecutor. If she had nothing criminally to hide, she should have spoken her peace.

Obama's Military Coup Purges 197 Officers In Five Years

"Yet what has happened to our officer corps since President Obama took office is viewed in many quarters as unprecedented, baffling and even harmful to our national security posture. We have commented on some of the higher profile cases, such as Gen. Carter Ham. He was relieved as head of U.S. Africa Command after only a year and a half because he disagreed with orders not to mount a rescue mission in response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi."

Not knowing the military, I have no idea if this is unprecedented or just normal from POTUS to POTUS.

And they probably also opposed the medal for "courageous restraint" in battle.

It is probably that they are not teaching enough about white privilege.
