because, he's chickenshit and cannot make a decision, that's why. hat tip, russ.
major general patrick brady, united states army (ret.) says he know why barack obama left our people behind at benghazi, and why he could not bring himself to launch a rescue mission. he says quite a bit of in the title of his piece at wnd, "obama paralyzed by fear." http://www.wnd.com/2012/11/u-s-general-obama-paralyzed-by-fear/ . published at 11.04.2012, hot off the presses.
obama is afraid to make decisions, often incapable of it. this passage is pretty straight forward in assessing obama:
he has a dearth of understanding of our military and military matters. we hear he is uncomfortable in the presence of ranking military and seldom meets with them. he is not a person who can make decisions, and he takes an extraordinary amount of time to do so, leading to such unseemly labels for a commander in chief as “ditherer in chief.”
being incapacitated by indecision and fear of risk, obama, in the general's opinion, is hardly fit to run the military, which he really doesn't understand. (on of the burdens of being raised by your mama and your grandma, if they are prone to "over nurturing.") says the general:
and obama’s terror of risk contributed to the massacre of americans by terrorists in benghazi. we hear that the president did not even convene the counterterrorismsecurity group while the benghazi terrorist massacre was visually and verbally available in real time. that is like ignoring f.e.m.a. during hurricane sandy. but once you bring in a group labeled anti-terrorist, you have to acknowledge terror exists, something the president is loath to do.
my veteran friends are horrified by the obama-panetta doctrine. at least 359 retired flag officers support mitt romney – only five that i know of support obama. some 150 former prisoners of war also support romney; I know of none who support obama.
america needs to listen to these veterans. they understand leadership. they know how to deal with risk in war. they would not want this man with them in combat or crisis. they never left a needy comrade behind. obama did.
there is nothing subtle about these comments. coming from a man like general patrick brady, (a medal of honor recipient) these words are of total condemnation, and, if i read the tone of his post correctly, of absolute contempt.
put simply, general brady does not think that barack obama is fit to command the united states military. simple as that, really.
