    Agreed....and civilians have been given the MoH before. It's very rare (only 7 so far) but if they're employed by the US Government they can get it.

    Good, it'll be easier for Romney to win the state.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    If it can be awarded to civilians, then they have certainly earned it.

    Yes, there is a civilian equivalent.

    Is called "The Medal of Freedom."

    No time to google back up info on this to post for you ... but am pretty sure that I am correct.

    I followed a link from hotair.com to this post on another board, make of it what you will ...

    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.
    quote:

    "(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."
    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 and told him that he was now relieved of his command.

    The story continues that now General Rodiguez would take General Ham's place as the head of Africon. ...

    It's been more then a month and Gen. Ham is still in command of AFRICOM, so I'm going to call this a pipe dream.

    Would it look good for Obama to remove him this soon after the attack and this close to the election?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    If a four star General was forcibly "relieved of command" I'd place damn good money that we'd have heard of it from reliable sources long ago. Especially considering how much Fox has been digging on this story.

    I'd also wager he would have long ago been before Congress explaining what had happened.

    Probably so.
