[QUOTE=torgo1968;2578304]If this was true, the best thing they could do to protect themselves is to go public. They'd be untouchable then for obvious reasons.[/QUOTE
With all due respect one or two generals go public??? And likely be reacted to much as this story is here on the forum.
It might stretch their life expectancy to a couple of weeks at the outset. Then they would either meet with an unfortunate car accident or death by "natural causes" etc etc. That is IF they said nothing to anybody about their intentions to go public until they had manged to get on the national news.
Knowing some of the new sources as we do who are in fact Obama disciples Im not even sure they could get that far.
Not even referring to (and well before) this article I have wondered if the members of our Military would fire on Mom and Dad...Auntie and Uncle...Brother and Sister...Gramps and Nana...Childhood friends...Members of their Church....Girl Friends or Boy Friends. I am not sure the majority would...and would probably try to stop those who would.
BUT those who wear a blue helmet (like those in the U.N. who are NOT American Citizens and have no ties here) may not have this mind set. Just thinking out loud.
I seriously have to throw the tinfoil hat down on this one. The assumption here is there are two high ranking officers, one a national hero, and both are afraid to put their names to the story because they fear they will be killed. OK, sure, let us go with that. If this litmus test is being applied that either means every general and admiral and high ranking official we have has been through this litmus test and either are:
1-going along with the plan and passed
2-All of our Generals/Admirals and high ranking officers are a bunch of collective wusses that are afraid to speak up.
BTW: The General that talked to the author does not have first hand knowledge of any litmus test. He said he got that from another officer. I am wondering why more generals and admirals do not confide in him also.
You can't have a conspiracy theory go only a little bit to fit ones paranoia. Look at it logicaly and explain to me why only two unnamed officers are speaking out, if that is what you want to call it. Where are the rest of the high ranking officers? Woould the admisistration asassinate all of them? And I hate innuedo's. Stop using metaphors and say what you think: you think that they will be asasinated.
Sorry, I don't buy it. For every Vince Foster you have a PFC Manning or other whistleblower that is living just fine. People talk about coincidences, well folks die all the time. How many famous people died in January?
I would not be surprised if thier were questions about what role they beleive the military may/should do in case of a nationwide disaster, manmade or otherwise. There are many EO's and directives that were made during the Cold War where the military takes a large role in case of a nation wide disaster.
