Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who was fired as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in 2014, has detailed the backstory of his departure from the DIA.

Flynn, who is said to be on Donald Trump’s short list as a potential running mate, is author of the new book “The Field of Fight” in which he describes why he believes the U.S. is not getting any closer to winning the war on terrorism.

“Two years ago, I was called into a meeting with the undersecretary of defense for intelligence and the director of national intelligence, and after some ‘niceties,’ I was told by the USDI that I was being let go from DIA. It was definitely an uncomfortable moment (I suspect more for them than me). Continue reading

Navy fires commander of squadron captured in Iranian waters

The Navy said in a statement on June 9 that it had lost confidence in Cmdr. Eric Rasch, who was the executive officer of the squadron that included the 10 sailors at the time of the January incident. He was responsible for the training and readiness of the more than 400 sailors in the unit.

A Navy official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Rasch “failed to provide effective leadership, leading to a lack of oversight, complacency and failure to maintain standards in the unit.” Continue reading

MICHAEL SAVAGE NEWSLETTER: Obama’s crash program to destroy U.S. military

A story from the blog U.S. Defense Watch, Savage noted, said the “unconscious prejudices and presuppositions” are simple facts such as that “women lack the upper body strength, the aerobic lung capacity, testosterone for aggressiveness, are more prone to injuries, while possessing a myriad of hygiene issues in the field that men do not encounter.”

Savage mimicked critics of that view, who say: “Those are false. You get that out of your head. Women are not different than men. They have no hygienic differences on the field. You get that out of your mind. Where did you get that trash from? That misogynistic garbage?”

The United States Marine Corps aviation wing is suffering from the burden of 15-years’ worth of fighting and budget cuts. Fox News ran an exclusive story about this predicament on April 17. The article reported that the vast majority of U.S. strike fighter aircraft are not airworthy. But it wasn’t just F-18s grounded due to a lack of parts, maintenance or other complications. “Only 42 of 147 heavy-lift CH-53E Super Stallion helicopters are airworthy,” Fox reported.

Intel Analysts: We Were Forced Out for Telling the Truth About Obama’s ISIS War

The enemy isn’t at the gate. The enemy is within the gate. The enemy within the gate isn’t in the trojan horse. The enemy within the gate has left the trojan horse and is now doing its job of gutting America.

America itself hasn’t woken up and is following mostly the Kardashians. That small portion who aren’t following the Kardashians are three steps behind in thinking the enemy is at the gate.

America is being purged and in trouble with deep wounds that may not be curable.

The growing scandal over cooked ISIS intelligence just got much worse. Now, analysts are saying they’re being forced out for not toeing the Obama administration’s line on the war.

Two senior intelligence analysts at U.S. Central Command say the military has forced them out of their jobs because of their skeptical reporting on U.S.-backed rebel groups in Syria, three sources with knowledge of their claim told The Daily Beast. It’s the first known instance of possible reprisals against CENTCOM personnel after analysts accused their bosses of manipulating intelligence reports about the U.S.-led campaign against ISIS in order to paint a rosier picture of progress in the war.

The commanding officer of a fast-attack submarine homeported in Guam has been fired from his duties “due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command,” a Navy statement confirmed Wednesday.

Cmdr. Mike Conner was removed from his position as commander of the USS Oklahoma City, said Cmdr. Brook DeWalt, public affairs officer for the U.S. Pacific Fleet’s Submarine Force. Continue reading

Obama pushes military frustration to highest level in decades

President’s overly cautious, centralized style irking Pentagon

Key lawmakers from both parties say frustration with the White House among the top military officers is at its highest level in decades, the product of President Obama’s cautious approach to the wars in Syria and Iraq and an indecisive inner circle of White House advisers who, critics say, have iced the Pentagon out of the policymaking process.

“There’s a level of dissatisfaction among the uniformed military that I’ve never seen in my time here,” said Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain in an interview. “For some of us who are a little older, let’s go back and read the Pentagon Papers — what the administration is doing is the kind of incrementalism that defined much of the Vietnam conflict.” Continue reading

General rips military leaders: ‘They should put their stars on the table and be prepared to resign’

Rules of engagement that risk the lives of U.S. forces and harsh punishments over questionable charges have America’s elite Green Berets fuming at the Obama administration, and the former commander of all Green Berets says it’s just the latest symptoms of a military deliberately weakened by this administration and military officials more concerned about advancement than the good of their forces and their nation.

Exclusive: 50 Spies Say ISIS Intelligence Was Cooked

If you’ve been following Global Geopolitics for a little while, you will have seen the posts regarding the whitewashing and manipulation of the ISIS threat designed to ensure the public hears only happy stories. Ex-military officers have also claimed the exact opposite of what the Obama administration portrays. They’re even gaining ground in Afghanistan. Soon we might see a follow-up to this story where we find out 50-plus intelligence analysts were suddenly removed (purged) from their duties, like US Army Gen. Odierno, who was forced into retirement after going against the Obama administration grain.

Also, stories such as ISIS taking over Syria’s last remaining oil field (another oil field here) is another piece of proof hard to refute. Don’t forget about the oil and wheat fields they took over in Iraq. Furthermore, what’s worse is that they’re on America’s doorstep on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Along with the military, the intelligence communities have been infiltrated by a fifth column which during the next year or two will continue to shed away the ‘undesirables’ who are truly patriotic and concerned about America’s national security.

 

It’s being called a ‘revolt’ by intelligence pros who are paid to give their honest assessment of the ISIS war—but are instead seeing their reports turned into happy talk.

More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned.

“The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command,” one defense official said.

Green Berets have growing doubts of duties with skittish political leadership

The Obama administration’s killing or morale and purge of the Green Berets on display:

 

They were the first troops to hit the ground in Afghanistan while al Qaeda’s dirty work still smoldered back in the United States.

On foot, helicopter and horseback, ArmySpecial Forces showed that if the U.S. was to win a long counterinsurgency war against Islamic extremists, the special skills of Green Berets would be fundamental.

Nearly 14 years later, these soldiers, some of the military’s smartest and best trained, are still creating lots of headlines, but not necessarily for heroics.

US Army Gen. Odierno Retires amid Controversy over Iraq Remarks

Fall in line with the liars in the White House or get purged like this respected General. It remains to be seen how long Brig. Gen. Wilson Shoffner will last given his statement regarding ISIS gaining ground. All branches are being purged of those who hold the line against the Obama administration, or are Christian.

U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno headed into retirement Friday amid controversy over his recent remarks on Iraq that were challenged by the Baghdad government, the State Department and now U.S. Central Command.

When asked if CentCom agreed with Odierno’s assessment that the campaign against Islamic militants in Iraq was essentially at a “stalemate,” Air Force Col. Pat Ryder, the chief spokesman for the command, said Friday, “No, I don’t agree with that.” Continue reading

Eielson chief master sergeant found dead

https://i0.wp.com/www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/4d0a32bc868f39874d28a16949275703a875a51e/c=75-0-2325-3000&r=537&c=0-0-534-712/local/-/media/2015/06/04/GGM/AirForceTimes/635690117680142753-Wendt.jpg

 

A chief master sergeant at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, was found dead Saturday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to an Alaska newspaper.

Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Wendt’s body was discovered in the Chena Lake Recreation Area and investigators have ruled out foul play, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported Tuesday. Continue reading

U.S. military decimated under Obama, only ‘marginally able’ to defend nation

As a result of the ongoing purge, all four branches of the U.S. military are showing signs of cracking and fracturing. At this pace of suicidal disintegration it might not even be able to defend the homeland by 2017.

 

The U.S. military is shedding so many troops and weapons it is only “marginally able” to defend the nation and falls short of the Obama administration’s national security strategy, according to a new report by The Heritage Foundation on Tuesday.

“The U.S. military itself is aging. It’s shrinking in size,” said Dakota Wood, a Heritage analyst. “And it’s quickly becoming problematic in terms of being able to address more than one major conflict.”

President Obama’s latest strategy is to size the armed forces pledged in 2014 so that the four military branches have sufficient troops, ships, tanks and aircraft to win a large war, while simultaneously acting to “deny the objectives of — or impose unacceptable costs on — another aggressor in another region.” Continue reading

Scandal at Guantanamo Bay as commander fired over alleged affair

It would be interesting to see how much he was against the opening of the floodgates to Cuba. As corrupt as this administration is, it’s difficult to put anything past them when they’ve been purging the military of all resistance for years now.

 

The commander of the US naval station at Guantanamo Bay has been fired and is reportedly under investigation over an alleged affair with a married woman and the death of her husband.

The body of Christopher Tur was found floating in the sea by the Coast Guard on Jan 11, the day after he was reported missing by his wife of 19 years Lara.

Admiral denies role in counterfeiting casino chips

A follow-up post from a previous entry, showing further proof of an ongoing Obama administration mission to purge those U.S. millitary who stand up to him.

The evidence is shaky at best, and the most the administration can do is build a case off his ‘lapse’ in judgement where he found the chips in the bathroom floor. Yet they compounded the doubt they wanted to put in people’s heads by smearing his reputation with ‘gambling problem’ gossip. With the soft heads people have today, if they are oft hearing something of this sort, they will eventually believe it, regardless of the facts.

As Nazi propagandist, and Herr Hitler’s right-hand man, Joseph Göbbels once said:

“If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself.”

Giardina is but one of many being purged in an overall effort to transform the military fitting the current White House agenda, which is to reduce U.S. military prowress and allow the likes of China and Russia to fill the void.

You have to destroy America from within, and within crticial areas, before it can be destroyed from the outside, so the story goes.

The effort is now in motion, in realtime.

 

An admiral linked by Navy investigators to counterfeit casino chips denied Sunday that he played any role in making them.

Investigation records say his DNA was found on the underside of an adhesive sticker used to alter one of the phony chips, but previously undisclosed emails indicate that the presence of his DNA is not conclusive evidence that he was involved in the fakery.

Rear Adm. Timothy M. Giardina, who was fired last year as No. 2 commander of U.S. nuclear forces at an early stage of a Navy criminal investigation into the counterfeit chips, acknowledged to The Associated Press that he played the fake chips at a poker table in the Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa, in June 2013.
