Most of the questions are, why appoint a retired General, when there are so many qualified, and active. Conclusion, it's political.
How much "Combat experience" do you guys think anyone above company command actually sees? He's reasonably well-qualified on that, and the CENTCOM J3 experience is pretty relevant.
The part I have a problem with is the same thing that made the military sources choke: You only bring back a retired guy because you don't have anyone on the active list able to fill the role, which in a time where we are talking about casing the colors of almost 1/3 of the active component combat brigades, is just fucking impossible.
