#1 
  • The mishandling of Mattis is a larger part of an attempt by Donilon to centralize foreign policy making in his office, with DOD and State as implementers.

    Champ's desire for Susan Rice to head State was our first clue. She does precisely what you TELL her to do, as did the Hildebeast.

    #2 The current administration does not seem to tolerate debate or dissent despite what they put out for public consumption. Maybe it's just me but it seems like a large number of the upper brass has left or been purged.

    #4 I so wanted the ARB ["Pub weenies" per LTC(Ret) Ralph Peters] to ask the Hilderbeast if anyone had asked her to appear on the Sunday Talk shows, and who that someone might have been. As you may recall, she went missing for weeks following those events.

    #5 He purged many very good Officers. He does many things lightning fast and so it becomes difficult to track. He moves so fast that you are always looking back to find stringers which no one cares about because that was yesterdays news.

    Patton Relieved, shrug.
