    As the CINC for all of the Armed Forces he can pretty much say what he pleases. If a service member does not 'like' what his boss says the service member has the option to not renew their employment contract when their current employment contract comes to an end.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    Google....very useful from time to time. Just three of many reports of Obama giving the 'troops' well deserved thanks.

    The SEALS are, as we all are, voicing their angst over a politician claiming credit where credit is not due.....except, like it or not, Obama does get to claim credit, and legitimately so.

    it is what it is....politics.
