what we have here in this general is life imitating art.
we have a general that is acting in same manor and attitude as the general who ordered the strike in "dr strangelove" and the general who tried to
override the president in "failsafe"
both were acting under "their duty to protect the United States" by using THEIR OPNION, not the constitution..
which (to remind people here) is CIVILIAN CONTROL OF THE MILITARY..
The president is COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE MILITARY.. he is THEIR BOSS... PERIOD.
what is even more scarier is as someone pointed out here (but using it to try to defend him) is that he gathered up his staff to remind them to
"follow procedures " but then showed his narcissism by saying "i am part of those procedures"
CLEARLY STATING that he is a major part if not THE MAIN AUTHORITY on a go/no go..
Anyone who knows anything about how that process works there is NO ONE PERSON in it that is required to be there..
there is ALWAYS others who can (and do ) fill that role.
for example if he is say "off duty at a family event" there would be A DIFFERENT OFFICER to take his place in the "procedure"
Just because he isnt there the "procedure" does not stop to wait for him... his replacement/backup/next in line/on duty officer/whatever is there to
fill that need.
He was CLEARLY STATING that no matter what he was to be the one to be called for "whatever" to go forward..
that alone should scare the hell out of anyone...
so in essence he is setting /stating he is the "authority" above the president and ONLY HE can determine "if the order to attack is legit"..
then telling OUR ENEMY he would inform them of our "plans to attack"
well guess what Gen traitor
you DO NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY to tell OUR ALLIES , much less our enemies or rivals, what ANY OF OUR MILITARY PLANS/ACTIONS are..
ONLY THE COMMANDER AND CHIEF can give those instructions who to tell
hell you dont even have the right to tell other military units or commanders ANYTHING without orders to do so..
all around this guy should be relieved of command IMMEDIATELY pending court marshal or resigning his commission (btw dont think he should get that
easy way out).
At minimum for violating his oath to defend the constitution ... and FOLLOW ALL ORDERS FROM THOSE ABOVE HIM...
