    on the rec list and not the other one. I don't care how nice a guy the general is, he clearly doesn't know how to behave in respect to his place in the military chain of command and therefor needs to go. We need generals who know what their job is and that is to enact the policy and carry out the mission set by the civilian command. They have problems with the job set for them, they talk to the Commander in Chief about it, they don't spout off disrespect to their subordinates or to reporters. There is just no excuse for that. It undermines the country, the soldiers who are doing the fighting and the President, who is their commander. Anyone who does so, can't be left in a command position.

    Bush legalized torture. Obama just legalized health care for all. Which line would you rather stand in? - Frank Schaeffer
