| | Well, let me offer a different view to this. If they are so adamant about their opinions on how the SECDEF is running things, why weren't they falling on their swords when they were in command? Why, when they were told to "sit down and stfu" didn't they resign in protest? It seems to me they failed to stand for what they believed in when they could have done something about it. These GOs, through their silence, supported the SECDEFs decisions and commited troops, men THEY were responsible for, to the very operations they now slander in the media. Obviously their claimed convictions did not outweight their own personal desires. That, to me, makes them no better than the man they're complaining about. Btw, I don't necessarily disagree with their opinions, so that's not why I'm posting what I am. I used to have respect for some of those GOs, but not any longer.
