I read today that you said:
“I believe strongly that politicians in Washington should not be telling generals how to do their job.”
I believe very strongly that you are dead wrong about that. Politicians in Washington should be telling generals what their job is, and set constraints on what they may and may not do while doing their job. Technically, the primary responsibility for that rests on one politician, the president, which, if you don’t remember, would be you. However, since you strongly believe that isn’t your job, I am very happy to see congress is trying to fill in.
I look forward to the day when we have a president who is both willing and capable of fullfilling the responsibilities of the office.
