Today, Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette was “fired” from his command of one of the three carrier battle groups back to Bremerton, Washington to face an investigation.
It is impossible to adequately state how unusual this is and how serious.
The Navy was clear that the charges had nothing to do with his personal conduct, no rape or sexual misconduct, no stolen money, no drug use, the things that usually bring down in the Navy, that and crashing ships into each other.
Gaouette was sent back because the Secretary of Defense found him unfit for command, sent him across the world in the middle of one of the largest combat exercises in history, one both timed prior to an election and one at a critical location, near the Straits of Hormuz in the Persian
Gaouette commanded nearly one third of the Naval and air combat forces in the region.
The decision was made based on a conversation with the Secretary of Defense who, at the end of the talk, believed Gaouette was part of a group of military officers who have been under suspicion for planning a “Seven Days in May” type overthrow of the US government if President Obama is re-elected.

Please read the last paragraph an over throw of the gov. was planned to over throw if Obama got re-elected
My instinct says that Obama does not have the support the Media makes it sound like he has. So why the charades?
he was just given a 35 million dollar house in hawaii!
That can always be turned into a homeless shelter for battered women.
Build a bigger one for Battered Americans... ;O)
Great. It shouldn't be too hard to find if and when the time comes.
He should have the same thing done to him that happened to our Ambasador in Libya. A slow torture...
If this were true? Then you have to look at why they would do something like that, could it be that they see Obama as a danger to America....after seeing what he has done to the country in four years i would have to say.....YES HE IS A DANGER TO AMERICA!
Obama shoulm go down.
Ralph- I believe in 1933 the Military had planned the same type of overthrow involing FDR, who was very radical & liberal (not quite as bad as Obozo). The plan, then, I believe was to assassinate FDR if he was going to push his further liberal agenda. Congress had passed a bill to stop a third term for a POTUS because they believed FDR was going for King. Fortunately, FDR couldn't run again. I still think Obozo could very easily be assassinated by the Military even though he is replacing Commanders. The Military totally hates Obozo, so I really wouldn't be surprised.
Do you think we could really get that lucky????!!!!
