A friend forwarded this article to me, to which I will add a few comments of my own concerning the HIGHER LEVELS OF COMMAND!
Was General Ham Relieved for Attempting Benghazi Rescue?
The story gets stranger by the day
“(John) Bolton says someone needs to find out what General Ham was saying on September 11, 2012”
Carter F. Ham (born February 16, 1952) is a United States Army general, who serves as the second and current Commander, U.S. Africa Command. In that position, he has been in command of the initial 2011 military intervention in Libya.
Ham previously served as Commanding General, U.S. Army Europe and Seventh Army from August 28, 2008 to March 8, 2011. Prior to that, he served as Director for Operations (J-3) at the Joint Staff from August 2007 to August 2008 and the Commanding General, U.S. 1st Infantry Division from August 2006 to August 2007. He assumed his current assignment with the Africa Command on March 8, 2011.
From an Internet posting:
I heard a story today from someone inside the military that I trust entirely.
The story was in reference to General Ham that Panetta referenced in the quote below.
“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place,” Panetta told Pentagon reporters. “And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”
(Keep in mind this idiot Panetta’s total military background, got him as far up the chain as 1st Lt. nice going Leon).
The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.
General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it; he was going to help anyhow.
Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command APPREHENDED General Ham (ET TU BRUTE?) and told him that he was now relieved of his command.
In the old days, George Patton probably would have turned around and shot the two faced son of a bitch where he stood.
You don’t fight a war to win by asking timidly “MOTHER MAY I” AND WE NOW HAVE 4 DEAD AMERICANS FOR WHAT, TO PERPETUATE OBAMA’S LIES?
The last time I looked, an officer’s oath was to the Constitution of the United States, not to some damned sidewalk HUSTLER who has never even run a lemonade stand and some ex 1st Lt. who couldn’t find his way to the outhouse with a Seeing Eye dog and a bloodhound.
The story continues that now General Ham’s second in command would take General Ham’s place as the head of Africom, ( I wouldn’t be too quick to trust the incoming weasel either whoever he turns out to be).
In Yiddish, we have an expression for a weasel like this second in command, we call him a toches-leker , a person who will do anything to gain favor; brown-noser, apple-polisher, ass-kisser.
Is there any doubt left in any sane persons mind, that we need to get rid of this administration in its’ entirety?
They are all a bunch of useless incompetent crooks, who have continually abrogated their oath of office on an almost daily basis to their benefit and the country’s loss.
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
