It’s highly unusual for a high-ranking soldier, let alone a high-ranking Marine, to publicly question White House and Pentagon policy. Yet that’s exactly what four-star Gen. James Amos, Commandant of the Marine Corps, did yesterday in Washington.
Speaking at the Brookings Institute Tuesday, Amos said the Obama administration paved the way for the emergence of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) by completely withdrawing American troops in 2011.
“I have a hard time believing that had we been there, and worked with the government, and worked with parliament, and worked with the minister of defense, the minister of interior, I don't think we'd be in the same shape we're in today,” Amos said.
Amos also blasted the White House for failing to live up to its obligations around the world.
Amos' retirement is imminent since this is the only foreign policy Obama has, punishing any military person who speaks against his asinine policies.
He'll be fired soon, then will be free to join the resistance.
Yes, he may be fired for speaking the truth and as we all know, the Liberal treasonous media supports anything this Muslim Marxist treasonous President does! Oh, you are racist just remember that!
amen..we need everybody we can get !!!
Wondeer how long before he is replaced and/or has an "untimely accident"! But I salute this Marine for his courage of conviction and speaking out! Where are the rest of the 'high brass"? Why aren't they standing with him? Because they are too busy "kissing ass" to keep their positions! USN-RET
I am also a Navy Veteran but have you not been keeping up with the news? Obama has removed many officers in our military so he can have the support he needs against our citizens! He has did this to over 300 high ranking officers! It seems this one finally got the message that Obama does not support honor or integrity, but the overthrow of our Constitutional rights. Obama wants a Muslim Marxist takeover and the Liberal Nazi media tells us speaking facts is racist!
Well this is a Great Marine .. oorah .. I suppose Obama will now retire him .. "We the People" must retire Obama !
Can't pick him up by body parts he doesn't have!
His so called wife does!
He may have his retirement removed as he is an honorable American!
Hey General Amos,
you had better have your solder's start fighting back against this tyrant or there will be no Marine Corp left. The military needs to remove this President for treason and high crimes against America. Do the right thing General.
