#1 The level of out and out bare faced lying coming out of the Obama regime is starting to scare me.

#2 I hear you, BP. I am worried about a "january 19" surprise that would require "custodial protection" of Romney and Ryan.

#4 We may see more pushback like this from retired officers rather quickly.

#5 So General Ham was swapped out early as Combatant Commander of AFRICOM, and now he is suddenly retiring. Nah, nothing curious about that.

#7 The question is will he retire before the election? If not then this is moot point since afterward I suspect we'll see all the Benghazi stuff tsunami out.

#9 Let's be clear now. Did he retire or resign?

#10 The article says retire. And because he apparently served in enlisted ranks prior to his commission, he is probably aged out at 40 years.

Not that there is nothing here, only that this is not an unexpected series of events.

#11 Did he retire or resign?

You do both after 20. More commonly referred to as putting your papers in. Prior to twenty you resign, get out and move on. Unless one has a medical basis for exit, you've had to wait till twenty years to retire. At a certain point its FIGMO.
