4-Star General destroys republican Congressman [View all]

In an effort to draw attention to himself to score political points and satisfy donors and lobbyists, junior Congressman Duncan Hunter Jr. (R-CA) has repeatedly accused the Army of failing to provide Soldiers with the latest intelligence processing technology.

He's obviously shilling for the company he references, Palantir.

Rather than compete for work like all other commercial product providers, Palantir spends nearly $600,000 per year lobbying Congress to force the Army to buy their product. Here's a link to Palantir's chief lobbyist, Terry Paul campaigning for Junior.

In return, republican Congressman Duncan Hunter Jr. now tries to get the Army to buy Paul's products.

Paul is a close Hunter family friend and has donated thousands to Hunter's congressional campaigns.

From General Odierno's response, it's pretty clear that he has had enough of the Congressman's nonsense.

Watch the whole thing. General Ordierno eats up Duncan Hunter.
