Obama Fires Top Admiral For Advocating Libyan Rescue?


Obama Fires Top Admiral For Advocating Libyan Rescue?
Monday, October 29, 2012 8:50


According to this report, yesterday (27 October) Obama ordered the immediate removal of Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette from his command of the powerful Carrier Strike Group Three (CSG-3) currently located in the Middle East.
CSG-3 is one of five US Navy carrier strike groups currently assigned to the US Pacific Fleet. US Navy carrier strike groups are employed in a variety of roles, which involve gaining and maintaining sea control and projecting power ashore, as well as projecting naval airpower ashore.
The aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) is the strike group’s current flagship, and as of 2012, other units assigned to Carrier Strike Group Three include Carrier Air Wing Nine; the guided-missile cruisers USS Mobile Bay (CG-53) and USS Antietam (CG-54); and the ships of Destroyer Squadron 21, the guided-missile destroyers USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG-108), USS Dewey (DDG-105), USS Kidd (DDG-100), and USS Milius (DDG-69).
US news reports on Obama’s unprecedented firing of a powerful US Navy Commander during wartime state that Admiral Gaouette’s removal was for   “allegations of inappropriate leadership judgment” that arose during the strike group’s deployment to the Middle East. 
This GRU report, however, states that Admiral Gaouette’s firing by President Obama was due to this strike force commander disobeying orders when he ordered his forces on 11 September to “assist and provide intelligence for” American military forces ordered into action by US Army General Carter Ham, who was then the commander of the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM), against terrorist forces attacking the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
General Ham had been in command of the initial 2011 US-NATO military intervention in Libya who, like Admiral Gaouette, was fired by Obama. And as we can, in part, read from US military insider accounts of this growing internal conflict between the White House and US Military leaders:
“The information I heard today was that General [Carter] Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.
General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.”

Anyone that has served in the military...I have in infantry...knows that when orders are given, they must be followed or more life will be lost. To disobey an order can result in lost of command, court-martial or career ruined.

"when orders are given, they must be followed or more life will be lost."

Yeah, lilspanky, tell us more about how this foodstamp-pushing community organizer knows how to utilize military forces and power better than the Generals and Admirals. Tell us all about his military training and experience in battle, you little pipsqueak moron.
"Orders must be followed" - KISS MY ASS.
Four Americans are dead because of his orders.
30 Americans were saved because two Navy Seals DISOBEYED his orders and lost their lives while waiting for help from your messiah, you insufferable moron.
Pucker up and kiss my ass.

The ONLY thing Obama is doing is looking for a scapegoat in Obama's own poor judgement. They should had never stood down. I have said it over and over again,,, He is NOT a Commander-In-Chief. I too was 11 Bush in the Army, u do not leave your brother behind let alone sit there and watch him die and not do a da&n thing about it.
