During a past post I stated the females in the military were subject to different physical requirements than those required for men. This is not true. I was in error on this point. Women have the same physical requirements as men to go into battle.
I was reading old articles before the rules were changed. In 2014 there were changes made so women had the same physical requirement as men to fight in combat. I want to make this correction to my readers and move forward. I apologize for my error.
Michael Flynn had to go! He was an outspoken critic of the Iranian nuclear deal and was adamantly opposed to many of the policy positions of the Kerry/Obama State Department. Flynn was a threat to the continued government employment of those monitoring these programs.
Our intelligence agencies have a requirement that says that if we are secretly tapped into a foreign national citizen and that person speaks to an American, then the recording and listening must stop until that conversation is concluded. The only exception is when the agency has a court order to listen to the foreign national. This law was to ensure the intelligence community does not spy on Americans. The legislation was passed during the Reagan Administration.
Barak Obama issued an Executive Order 17 days before leaving office to allow the intelligence community to continue recording the Americans and then distribute the recording among 16 agencies under the intelligence umbrella. The leaks that emerged concerning Michael Flynn came from Obama loyalists in one or more of these agencies. There were 9 confirmations that Flynn talked to the Russian Ambassador before assuming his role in the new Trump Administration. That means there were at least 10 leaks that were made to the media in a coordinated effort to have him removed from his service to the new President.
Although the Justice Department and the FBI investigated what Flynn said, or didn’t say to the Russian Ambassador and found no American laws were violated. Because the actual recordings have not been released, we will never know what the actual conversation was.
Flynn misled Vice President Pence about the conversation. Pence then went on the Sunday talk shows and defended Flynn incorrectly. This error by Flynn cost him his job with the Trump Administration.
The Obama loyalists won the round but might not have won the war. The Obama loyalists did succeed in having the United States without a trusted advisor in case of a military situation from around the world. The Obama loyalists would rather see America fail as a country if a Republican is in the White House.
I do not know the personal opinions of General McMaster, Flynn’s replacement. However, McMaster is a no nonsense type of guy who very likely shares Trump’s opinions on foreign policy. McMaster will do very well as National Security Advisor to the President. He comes to the job without the baggage that Michael Flynn carried.
The General comes to the job with a reputation of a man that gets things done. This is a no nonsense guy that moves those below him to act and accomplish the tasks they are given. He fits right in the mold of the other Trump picks in the new Administration.
Let us hope that the Trump picks soon get conformation so the Obama obstructionists can be purged from the Administration.
