Nevertheless, Boykin said the future of the military is becoming more and more of concern, since colonels who would be generals also are being relieved of duty, if they show that they’re not going to support Obama’s agenda, which critics have described as socialist.

“I talk to a lot of folks who don’t support where Obama is taking the military, but in the military they can’t say anything,” Boykin said.

As a consequence, he said, the lower grades therefore have decided to leave, having been given the signal that there is no future in the military for them.

Boykin referred to recent reports that Obama has purged some 197 officers in the past five years.

These reports suggest these officers were suspected of disloyalty or disagreed with the Obama administration on policy or force-structure issues. As Boykin pointed out, a number of them have been relieved of duty for no given reason.


There have been a few threads about Generals being fired or dismissed; a few for misconduct if the accusations were true then OK get rid of them.. I am beginning to wonder though if there is more than meets the eye to some of this stuff ?
The following link is more radical and hints at the old martial law card.

He contends, “The American people don’t want any part of where Obama is taking us, despite the fact they have elected him twice, but I believe that’s mostly because they are not aware of how truly radical and subversive Obama’s agenda is.”



Three of the nine firings just this year were linked to the controversy surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. special mission in Benghazi, Libya.

In one case, U.S. Army Gen. Carter Ham, who commanded U.S. African Command when the consulate was attacked and four Americans were killed, was highly critical of the decision by the State Department not to send in reinforcements.

Obama has insisted there were no reinforcements in the area that night.

The purity test and Dick Cheney which was carried over to this admin.

Thus when General Richard Myer, a predecessor of Dempsey, while testifying before the 9/11 Commission, when unable to explain the many failures of command structures and defense protocols that allowed the attacks to proceed surprised none.

In fact, he had only assumed the chair of the Joint Chiefs a few days before 9/11. His tenure, until 2005, saw two illegal wars, a drug empire built in Afghanistan, trillions of dollars disappear in defense funding and the military itself purged of all commanders who failed to pass a political “purity test” established by Vice President Cheney.



As an aside, we take a second to look at Afghanistan. The former First Secretary of the Soviet and Russian embassies in Kabul was Colonel Eugene Khrushchev, a longtime friend. Gene, an expert on the region and co-editor at Veterans Today, is deeply suspicious of US involvement in the sudden and inexplicable growth in narcotics production in Afghanistan.

“Gene” as I call him, cited pronouncements by former US Envoy, Richard Holbrooke that demonstrated somewhat more than “passive support” for what had been a very small opium production issue and what had now become a massive heroin production and distribution industry.

Veterans Today? I really do not know what to think of that web sight.. Some stories can be verified and other seem to be pulled out of thin air .. They do seem to be strongly anti-Israeli or Zionist in many articles ...
Drudge did link the original article by Wnd www.wnd.com...

Anyway this is some way out stuff IMO.. Most of the General officers I have ever known worked their Butts off and were a dedicated group of men who believed in what they were doing for the betterment of their command and America as a whole. I have only known (1) 4 star and a few 2 and 1 star generals though so maybe my impressions are not the rule? .... Something appears to be going on though. Normal house cleaning or is there more to it ?

There has to be more to it than is being admitted to by this corrupt administration. All dictators play the same "purge" card, especially with the military. Can't have high ranking officers who disagree with the great leader.

There's the old saying "If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's a duck."

This is another Obama card he's been forced to show.

Typical military regime change. Happens on almost any CINC's last watch. Get all your people into positions of seniority to produce lasting influence. Never forget that it is the DoD who spends most of your tax dollars.

And, if elected as your president, you will see a military purge on an order unimaginable!
