  • US Senator Attacks US Army Officer on Twitter

    This is not only outrageous, Senator Blackburn's personal attacks against LtCol Vindman are both defamatory and unwarranted. And these actions by Blackburn diminish her status as a US senator and the Senate as a whole.

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/25/polit...eet/index.html


    A top Pentagon official as recently as last month vowed the department would not tolerate "any act of retaliation" against Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman -- a pledge now being put to the test after Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn this week repeatedly attacked the key National Security Council aide who testified before Congress on the Ukraine scandal.


    Responding to concerns about Vindman's safety following his November testimony in the House impeachment inquiry, Deputy Defense Secretary David Norquist -- on Defense Secretary Mark Esper's behalf -- assured Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer that the department would take any "steps necessary" to ensure the White House detailee's safety, according to a copy of a December 16 letter to Schumer that was obtained by CNN.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    I think Vindman has bigger problems in his future than being bad mouthed by a Senator. I'd say, based on my experience with the military that Vindman better get used to being a Lt. Col. and maybe get used to being somewhere nobody in their right mind wants to be stationed. He's hardly the first to get 'the treatment,' and won't be the last.

    That won't come from the Senate or elsewhere. That will come quietly and internally from the military who doesn't like bad publicity and Vindman delivered a boatload of it by speaking out when he should have just stayed on the sidelines. It'd be no different if the president were a Democrat.

        "I don't discuss sitting presidents," Mattis tells NPR in an interview. "I believe that you owe a period of quiet."

            Vindman was playing politics ,but forgot that there are no rules in politics and that if you join politics,you lose your immunity .If you attack the potus,be prepared to be attacked by the supporters of the potus .
            When Marshall and Eisenhower joined the political circus after WWII, they ceased to be war heros.

              You have to consider that these kind of threads come from a place where the uniform makes the man and the swamp is a right wing conspiracy. There is plenty of swampiness in the military.

                    So involved in large scale international crime profiting from your political connections, you are afraid of being investigated, declare your candidacy for president, frame your rival for initiating the investigation that they are trying to manipulate the next election.

                      He'll believe anything that supports or stands up for Trump as well as anything that personally attacks anyone who dares speak of Trump for what he is-a despicable criminal running a corrupt administration.

                            How convenient. They've got you trained well to ignore anything you hear a Democrat say. Doesn't matter if it's the truth or not. How convenient. Hannity will make it all better.

                              Reading stuff like this I think Vindman may be wrong when he said that in the United States truth matters.
