    the president. obama can fire any officer he wants to. the only difference, between a col. and a gen., is that generals have to be approved by congress. if obama wanted to, he could get rid of both of them.

    it would be a nice gesture, if the F-16 pilots at his new post turned their backs on Lt. Col. Wilkerson, as a sign of their personal & professional disapproval of his actions. the air force isn't going to drop-kick an entire squadron, of very expensively trained pilots.
