Being a “YES” man in the Bush Administration, as we all know, certainly can get you some sweet positions in the Government, IF you go along with the lies, deceipt and spin of the Neo-Con elite.
If you manage to really push their unsavory agenda, it can get you the top job, no matter your qualifications (see Gonzales, ALBERTO).
When Admiral James Fallon was asked to be the head of CENTCOM, the Bush Administration put a career Navy man in charge of the entire U.S. Central Command. When Admiral Fallon was found by the Neo-Con elite to have a mind of his own, he was on the outs with the good-ol-boys club and found the situation so untenable that he resigned in March of this year.
This JUST IN from AP:
Petraeus picked to lead Mideast command
Ray Odierno to replace him as head of U.S.’s military operations in Iraq
Amazing! The more you lie to the Senate, the more you get another chance in BushWorld to go back before the Senate so they can let you lie to them some more and do nothing about it.
Gen. David Petraeus, the four-star general who has been leading troops in Iraq, has been tapped to become the next commander of U.S. Central Command, The Associated Press reported on Wednesday.
See, I wasn’t just teasing.
If confirmed by the Senate, he would replace Navy Adm. William Fallon, who stepped down in March.
If confirmed by the Senate, you say? When confirmed by the Senate, I sez.
Thats all they have for now, but it’s enough to make me cringe. Again.
