Pentagon mass exodus of top military officers gives Obama a chance to wussify the armed forces, and worse. This kind of mass exodus of military brass is "virtually unheard of," said John Ullyot, a Republican strategist and former spokesman for the Senate Armed Services Committee. "It's very rare to have so many service chiefs up" all at once, he said. Job Openings at Pentagon Give President Obama Chance to Shape Military Secretary of Defense Robert Gates along with 4 out of 6 members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff will be retiring. Are they really retiring or quiting? Now isnt it convenient as this gives Obama the opportunity to transform the top leadership of the military and Im sure he will replace these retiring people with PC WIMPS who have never even fired a BB gun! ! They were probably asked to leave or chose to leave on their own because it is well known that the top brass does NOT agree with Obamas battle planNOT for Afghanistan, repeal of DADT, and they are tired of being mocked and laughed at during White House meetings as reported by Ulstermans WH Insider. We have the most powerful military on earth and Obama and his cohorts are about the GUT IT.
