… A Superior Choice for SecDef [#Mattis]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,December 7th,2016

.. the Donald has made his choice for Secretary of Defense ..

.. he has chosen retired Marine Gen. James Mattis for the post ..

.. to me , he has made a superior choice for SecDef . Mattis was an outstanding leader of men and women while in the service . Considering what is needed and has not always been present in the position , his service once again is what is needed at the Pentagon ..

.. he just might have one ..

.. the ObamaCraps want to close the place . They want to in the worst way . However , in an amazing twist , POTUS does not have the ultimate authority to order the final release of a detainee … the SecDef does …

.. he realizes that it is his signature on the final release . Congress made it clear that it was to be SecDef ‘ s responsibility for a good reason …

.. and , hopefully , POTUS is listening …

.. neither one of them is someone to be trifled with ….

.. King Abdullah has now been on the throne in his nation for 18 years . He has made peace with Israel , despite having a significant Palestinian minority in his nation . He is also openly an American ally , something which is dangerous anywhere in the Middle East . Especially these days , with his lordship in power …

.. Leon Panetta is POTUS ‘ former CIA Director and former Defense Secretary . He is also a former White House Chief of Staff [Bill Clinton] , as well as being a very smart DemoCrap operative (also as the longtime chair of the House Budget Committee for over a decade) …

.. POTUS should well listen to these guys …

… POTUS has to Hate This [#books]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 14th,2016

.. especially books by former Secretaries of Defense …

.. now , it is Leon Panetta , and his book is about to come out …. at the worst possible time …

.. right before the midterm elections …

.. normally , foreign policy does not end up as an issue in midterm elections . Well , that is far , far different this year . Immigration . Illegal Immigration . Infectious Disease , specifically Ebola . Syria , Iraq , ISIL , Israel . etc…..

.. Panetta , s revelations are grist for the mill . Unlike Gates [a Republican] , Panetta is a dyed-in-the-wool Democrap . He had to know that the timing of the book and the PR campaign were going to be horrible for his party …

.. as pissed as his he is as His lordship , I am not sure that he cares right now . He wants to make sure that the message gets through loud and crlear , and in a timely mannter , instead of dilly-dallying around the point , politics be damned ….
