Latest Military "Litmus Test" Victim? At Least Seven High-Ranking Marine Commanders Released Since Mid-March

The Marine Times

The commander of the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit was removed from his position on Wednesday, less than a week after the force’s subordinate units were first brought together to deploy in 2014, Marine officials said.

Col. James Christmas was relieved of command by Maj. Gen. Raymond Fox, the commander of II Marine Expeditionary Force, out of Camp Lejeune, N.C., after the general lost confidence in Christmas’ ability to continue commanding the Marines and sailors of the 22nd MEU,” said Capt. Binford Strickland, a Marine spokesman. No additional explanation was given for the decision.

“The II Marine Expeditionary Force is not a zero-defect organization, and the relief of a commander is never an easy decision,” Strickland said. “However, the commanding general decided this action was in the best interest of the Marines and sailors of the 22nd MEU and the Marine Corps.”

I think our entire military has been purged

of it's least pliable commanders over the past year or so. Not something I've researched, but just various articles I've read and insight from others sure makes it seem to be true. If true, we have a military command full of compromised yes men. Spooky.

Undo what Wilson did

This was very shocking.

Dr. Garrow seemed very believable, but I don't like him being put in a position of surrogate whistleblower... His source really needs to step out of the shadows the video was posted 6 mos ago already. What's he waiting for?
