Two retired U.S. generals are now making it their top priority to monitor the actions of President Barack Obama. Army Gen. Paul E. Vallely and Air Force Brig. Gen. Charles Jones have created a citizens’ commission to look at the Obama administrations actions on national and security issues.
Given the name of “America’s Provisional Leadership Council,” Vallely and Jones have listed which major concerns they will be addressing in an eight-page paper called “The Americans Project.” Vallely referred to the citizens’ commission as a “movement” not affiliated with any political party, declaring that “we want candidates to run as Americans first before being a Democrat, Republican or Independent.”
He also said the goal of the grassroots organization is to offer “guidance to federally elected officials on behalf of the citizens” and demand high standards of performance to solve the nation’s problems of governing.” Vallely served as the deputy commanding general of Pacific Command. Jones held numerous Air Force command positions including a tactical fighter wing, a strategic airlift wing and a special operations group.
The new organization comes on the heels of reports from earlier this month that Obama has approved the release of hundreds of senior military officials. 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.
