A U.S. Army intelligence official says the fact that the Obama administration has released nearly 200 senior officers over the last five years has created concern amongst armed forces that the President is creating a “compliant officer class.” Military personnel are now speaking out about the “purge” of senior military officers who do not comply with the agenda of the Obama administration.
One veteran Army intelligence official who spoke to WND on the condition of anonymity said that nine general and flag officers have been relieved of their duties this year alone, leading to difficulty in finding “senior officers with a pair of balls in there [the military] now that would say no to anything.” He believed the lack of public concern over allowing women into front-line combat and the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was a clear indication of that.
Retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady believes that Obama’s reported baseless firing of military officials has led to low morale in armed forces and caused soldiers to question their commitment to staying in the fight. “There is no doubt [Obama] is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him,” he said. He believed the biggest issues that military officials must now comply with include “homosexuals, women in foxholes [and] the Obama sequester.”
Many colonels in the military are also reportedly choosing not to wait until they are fired for their refusal to comply, instead deciding to quietly take their careers in another direction.
