MYERS swiftbotting the generals on This Week
Yaas, nobody can frag other vets like a vet. He said they never spoke up in this vein while they were aboard, even in meetings of the Chiefs where it was just-them-there. Oh, you mean they would have been able to say these things with Chief-Lackey-MYERS in charge of the meeting? Does MYERS count himself as just-us-chickens in the meeting? When Georgie STEPANOUPOLIS asked him about the rumored resignations coming over nuking Iran, MYERS said that is just too ludicrous to be true. He refused to give his own opinion about nuking Iran. Oh, well, he's only been retired six months. Maybe after another year or two of disaster he will peep out an opinion, peep-peep.

So, these particular retired generals shouldn't be speaking out, but the image is indelible of the six Medal-of-Honor holders standing on Shrub's stage during the Florida Selection, with their goddamned medals around their necks. And then there are those Swiftbotters in '04. Let's say that all of THESE a-holes were inappropriate to speak, too.

2. This is true IRONY...to berrate them for speaking out now that Meyers
has no control over their speach, complaining that they did not speak out when Myers HAD control over their speach. Is there a disconnect here?

3. Myers LIED his ass off
He failed to mention that Shinseki was most likely already read the riot act by Rummy the Dummy to STFU about troop levels or lose your f'n pension or be demoted or both. Isn't it funny how vet generals like Myers and that ilk forget the relevant shit.

5. Myers is bought and paid for. Remember his niece, Julie?
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

Yeah. Another recess appointment to head up the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Bureau. This was in January -- when the cronyism charges against this criminal administration were blaring -- and yet he still put in Gen. Myers' niece by fiat, a person who is totally unqualified for this job.

Should anyone be surprised at the lengths Dick Myers would go to to for these thugs? He said yesterday that these generals should have spoken out when they were in uniform, not waited until they were out of uniform - as if that's permitted by the code of military conduct! What an ass. He's insinuating that they are speaking out now in order to sell books. What a horse's ass.

7. I just sent a comment:
Pointing out that Gen Myer's opinion is compromised by virtue of his niece's appointment. And I complained that this favor wasn't included in the interview.
