I look at the world though the lens of a very simple philosophy... there are no coincidences.
I remember reading about this long ago somewhere. About how Obama defeated *all* his opponents when running for the Illinois State Senate.Quote:
How quickly we forget. The Chicago nazi would always find either a divorce or extramarital affair attached to one of their opponents. True?
Whether true or not, I don't know, but I wouldn't put anything past this despicable man and his enablers.
What law or regulation did Obama violate when he ordered those two to stand down and not engage?Quote:
What is Military Whistleblower protection?The Military Whistleblower Protection Act, Title 10 U.S.C. 1034, as amended, prohibits interference with a military memberís right to make protected communications to members of Congress; Inspectors General; members of DoD audit, inspection, investigation or law enforcement organizations; and other persons or organizations (including the chain of command) designated by regulation or administrative procedures. A protected communication is any lawful communication to a Member of Congress or an IG, as well as any communication made to a person or organization designated under competent regulations to receive such communications, which a member of the Armed Services reasonably believes reports a violation of law or regulation.
Did they disobey a direct order from Obama? Hell yes.
The Wistleblower clause doesn't protect them unless there was an actual violation of some law or regulation.
If they talk, they are screwed. They could face Dishonorable discharge, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and confinement for 5 years. If Obama really wanted to be a dick, say it is during a time of war, and add the death penalty.
Obama wants him gone bad enough, I do believe he has it in his authority to just replace him. I think Petraeus knows enough of what really happened, but also knows that there is enough to put the blame back on him self if Obama really was looking for a scape-goat.
Won't it be easier to scapegoat him now that he is gone?
Also, Oblahblah has been the worst on whistleblowers, even while claiming to support them:
Obama Pursuing Leakers Sends Warning to Whistle-Blowers
Obama Administration Convicts Whistleblower, Gives Accused Torturers A Free Pass
Obama's War on Whistleblowers
Obama has Prosecuted More Whistleblowers than All Other Presidents COMBINED
