I'm talking about Clinton's actions while president, Zero. Somalia is a biggie for me. Also, his choice of advisors was absolutely awful - so bad some had to resign. The Sec AF called marines "extremists" and was forced to resign for example.Originally posted by Zero
For the record, Russ, I was in the military at the same time you were, and Clinton's 'evil' was more hype than reality. His dereliction of duty? In what way? And what does it have to do with Bush's derelictions of duty?
Clinton's first act when he took office was to try to allow gays to serve openly in the military. Not a move calculated to gain the loyalty of his troops. The "don't ask, don't tell" compromise is ok, but not great - but fortunately nowhere near full acceptance.
When you hate the military and appoint advisors that hate the military, bad things happen to the military and with the military.
