About the General Milley thing...

Hey gents..

I'm not gonna dig into the General Milley thing till I hear more.  Remember this!  THEY'RE TRYING TO SELL BOOKS!!!!  

To my mind's eye that means they're gonna push sensational headlines to get sales and only after you read the book will things be put in the proper context.

I'm not saying the dude is golden.

I AM SAYING that he walked a fine line and he had BOTH PARTIES trying to pull the US military into a political fight.

I've been quick to bang on Generals.  It's my favorite sport.  HOWEVER this isn't what should be grabbing headlines in the Military Twitter Universe.

This is a distraction.

What we should be banging on is the planning for the withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Who participated, what did the intel say, why they went so light, why they allowed a haphazard evacuation to take place, why the reliance on the Taliban for security etc...

This Milley thing is alot of flash with VERY LITTLE blast.
