Exit strategy. Finally kill OBL and Mullah Omar. Declare victory.

Now, capturing and killing those two won't bring democracy to Afghanistan. It won't diminish the religious lunacy of the Taliban. It won't make the Karzai government stabile and non-corrupt. It won't keep future terrorists from re-establishing. But, it will allow a decent enough reason to depart.
Our purpose going there was in the first place to displace the Taliban Government and to capture OBL. We have achieved the first objective; but it is a hard one to hold on to that achievement.
OBL, well I don't know what to think. Dead? Living in Munich? Toronto? NYC?
I figure if he is alive somewhere, he is in a big city, wearing a business suit, and engaged in ordinary commercial banking. Hiding in plain sight as it were. Maybe we are turning over the wrong rocks.

The officer's oath does require obedience to the CIC as long as those orders are not contrary to the Constitution. This is not relevant to this particular situation but it is what it is. The fact that the officer's oath allows officers to think for themselves within limitations is one of the things that protects our democracy and our nation. The fact that they are not required to blindly obey the orders of the President is one of deterrents to a President issuing illegal orders.

Yes he should have been fired…What do I think of Obama and his administration….If you were to say that he was slow roasting small children in the fire place in the oval office I would probably agree with you.

As a 3 star told me years ago, military General's are no longer troops, they have become, in every sense of the word, politicians within ANY administration.
The General voiced his opinion, which was not tolerated by his CIC. The perogative of the CIC is to relieve the General, whcih he did.
I'm not a fan of the current Administration, but as the CIC, it was his call. All politics aside.
