What’s Behind Obama’s Military Purge?
What’s Behind Obama’s Military Purge?
November 16, 2012 by Bob Livingston
Is something deep and dark afoot in the upper regions of military command?
Since the Sept. 11 Benghazi, Libya, massacre, President Barack Obama has sacked his CIA director and two of his top military commanders, demoted one and found another caught up in the scandal involving the CIA director. This many top commanders being relieved at one time is unprecedented in U.S. history.
So, are sexual misconduct and corruption that rife in the military command? Or is Obama making a point about staying on script in the Benghazi incident? Or is the President purging a group of rogue commanders who were planning a coup?
The recent casualties of the high command are CIA Director (formerly top Afghanistan commander) David Petraeus, General Carter F. Ham (AfriCOM) and Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette (Carrier Task Force Stennis), who were sacked; General William “Kip” Ward (former AfriCOM), who was stripped of a star; and Afghanistan commander Marine General John R. Allen, who has been tied to the Petraeus “sex scandal” in a guilt-by-association sort of way.
This is reminiscent of Joseph Stalin’s and Adolf Hitler’s purges and executions of top military commanders who did not toe the line — without the bullets.
Petraeus was either sacked or chose to resign, perhaps because he was galled by being forced to claim something he knew to be not true: that the attack was the result of an amateurish video denigrating Mohammed as the pedophile and murder he was. So a sex scandal story was fabricated — or used after being held in abeyance — to try to shut him up or embarrass him. Now, he says he’ll testify before Congress. He should watch his back in the coming days.
The dismissal of Ham is interesting because there are reports that he had assets in place set to rescue Libyan Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his team but was ordered to stand down. According to Tigerdroppings.com, Ham was receiving the same emails the White House was receiving requesting support as the attack was under way. Ham got a rapid response unit ready and communicated that with the Pentagon. When he was told to stand down, Ham responded he was not going to obey the order. Less than a minute later, his second in command told Ham that he had been relieved of his command.
In a highly unusual move, Gaouette was relieved while deployed “pending the outcome of an internal investigation into undisclosed allegations of inappropriate judgment,” according to a report by The Stars and Stripes (since scrubbed from its website). But the Russian intelligence agency GRU reports that Gaouette’s firing was due to his disobeying orders when he ordered his forces to “assist and provide intelligence for” American military forces ordered into action by Ham.”
The whole Benghazi cover-up story took an even stranger turn with revelations that the man who succeeded Petraeus in Afghanistan had sent hundreds of emails to Jill Kelley, the woman who supposedly caused the FBI to open its investigation into Petraeus. The emails were then reported to be of the “phone sex” variety.
And finally there’s Ward, who had been under investigation for a year and a half over charges he had spent $82,000 on lavish travel and other unauthorized expenses.
Being among the top brass is an increasingly dangerous business.

Citizen Petition to Congress:
"We Demand Full Accountability On Obama's Libya Cover-Up"
For weeks President Obama and his cronies continued to perpetuate a grand lie to the American people. By bogusly suggesting the attack was a "spontaneous reaction" to a Muslim video posted on YouTube, administration officials appear to be engaged in a cover-up on a broader scale than even Watergate.Watch the LibertyNews Network video: Getting to the Bottom of Benghazi
Is Obama attempting to mislead the American people for political gain or to gain favor in the Muslim world? What is he trying to hide? The American people are asking questions and demanding answers!
Grassfire Nation has launched a national petition giving citizens a platform to demand Congress fully investigate what Obama and his administration knew prior to and shortly after the terrorist attacks in Libya. Did the White House knowingly misinform the American people about the attacks as a means of covering up the truth about what really led to the murders of four Americans?
As an American citizen I am demanding Congress thoroughly investigate the deadly terror attack on our Libyan consulate and fully answer the mounting questions surrounding the attacks including our President's refusal to publicly acknowledge what happened in Libya as a terrorist act by Muslim militants. Is there a cover-up? Is this administration withholding information as a means of covering up the truth about what really led to the murders of four Americans. I cannot demand answers from the Obama administration, but you can, and I'm urging you to bring the truth to light.

The United States spends five times more on defense than China, the No. 2 spender,
and 10 times more than Russia, the No. 3 spender.
Does the US need to increase defense spending?
Today, ownership of a carrier for fixed-wing aircraft admits a nation to an elite club, but the US has more than everyone else in the world put together.
Does anybody still need aircraft carriers?NO AMNESTY
