Holy fucking shit. Just how god damn pathetic is this administration that generals feel the need to pass along to the press that the president actually listened to something someone said? Has the bar really been set that low? What an embarrassment this man is. Can you imagine ANY other president in our history needing that sort of coverage?
"I found him very engaged. I think he's looking for some answers, and the impression I had was there will be some changes," said retired general Wayne Downing in an interview with NBC's Today show. "I think you're going to see some new things come out."
Retired general Barry McCaffrey said the president was "very sober-minded" and listened "intently to different views," including a difference of opinion among the former generals over the Iraq Study Group's recommendation that most combat troops could be withdrawn from Iraq by the first quarter of 2008.
"General Westmoreland reported that president Kennedy seemed to take a real interest in the report that missiles may be in place in Cuba. He even asked where they were pointing."
"I found president Truman to be very engaged. He listened intently to different views, including a difference of opinion among the generals over the use of a new bomb that has been developed."
How how how did we ever sink this far and how in the world is there not a call for this idiot's head on a pike from every corner of the nation?
