"Marine Gen. John Allen, former commander of allied forces in Afghanistan, will retire from the military to care for his ailing wife. President Barack Obama, who had nominated Allen to head NATO, met with the departing officer on Tuesday and accepted his request to leave the armed forces, the White House said."
More and more leaders of our military are "Leaving" under scandal, retirement or other means. And with them we have less leaders who will tell the current Administration to stuff it when necessary.
I don't know which concerns me more. Obama with all the yes men he wants, or the fact that the situation has gotten so bad that those leaders don't want to fight anymore.
