Brave Pentagon bureaucracy punts on the cognitive dissonance of it all. This doesn't mean his career isn't ruined in any case.

Hmmm. Guess they didn't want to prompt more gunfire at their Jade Helm operations.

The U.S. federal government is firmly in the hands of our enemies, the enemies of the Founders, and the enemies of freedom. I expected nothing good from them and I have not been disappointed. I pray for those brave Americans under the command of the Destroyer-In-Chief, who must obey him and his demons. May God keep them from harm, and give them strength and wisdom.

Even if a future selection board puts him on the Commander last be will need to be confirmed by the Senate. That will, quite likely, be problematic. He will suffer professional consequences for the very good action be took.

The right answer would be a medal, early promotion to Commander and a command of an aviation squadron.

It's a damned shame but on the upside, there're worse things than collecting half an O-4's pay while working a civilian job. LOTS worse things.

One of the finest officers and managers it was ever my pleasure and honor to serve under/work for was rifted and forced to retire as an O-4 (Major USAF, same as Lt Commander USN) because of his weight. The man was a truly GREAT middle manager. Frank Rodeffer knew more of what was happening in the comm squadron maintenance dept (he was Chief of Maintenance) than anybody. He knew more from skimming the raw computer dumps than I could tell him after 3 solid hours of crunching numbers with a calculator (PCs didn't exist yet). I don't think he would necessarily have made a great CEO/COO of a Fortune 500 corporation but he damned well was a sierra hotel mid level manager. I would bet serious money this LtCdr is a damned fine officer as well. Would likely have made a hellova Destroyer or Frigate or Cruiser or LCV Skipper some day. Instead he's gonna get beached. Sometimes I wonder how we ever manage to win wars. Guess it's true that the winner in a war is the side that makes fewer monumentally boneheaded mistakes. I know that in WWII the only role the NAVY brass could think up for submarines was as auxiliary vessels for surface fleets - a role for which they were unsuited because they were slow running topside and even slower (and not very maneuverable) submerged. Fortunately the IJN relieved us of our surface fleet so they sent the subs out to see what mischief they could get into. Turns out U.S. subs accounted for more tonnage sunk than the rest of the Navy and the Air Corps COMBINED. Basically, if it was flying the Rising Sun and a sub skipper saw it it got sunk. The U.S. subs went after everything from Battleships and Carriers to sampans. In the case of little boats that weren't worth a torpedo they'd surface and sink the enemy with MG or deck guns. It was nothing for a lone sub to attack an entire IJN task force alone. They seldom returned to port with torpedoes or deck gun ammo still on board. And someone who'd likely gladly have followed in that tradition is gonna get beached. Makes me sick to my stomach.

He's alive and we should all learn why. He's alive and a bad guy is dead because he practiced natural law. I know some in the .mil consider what he did to be breaking the rules, I get it. But he's alive. Fuck political correctness and no his career shouldn't be trashed but how many people would be room temperature if he hadn't. Damn when did we become so stupid as a nation. Idiocracy was not a training video but here we sit.

Who said all people in uniform were brave and no cowards or traitors to be found?

..OF COURSE the Navy has political officers who will do the POS POTUS bidding to frag a man doing the RIGHT THING, all the branches of service have these traitors and cowards in them...

Just because they took an oath doesn't mean that they will actually support and defend the Constitution and the American people from the enemy within and without...

They are just words, but the paycheck is all that matters. The majority of service men and women DO believe in their Oath and country, sadly there is also embedded these worthless fuckers too..None should have lost their lives to this POS terrorist who had an agenda to kill Americas finest at home. BRAVO to Timothy White for killing this POS. There is a need for a war at home by cleansing Chattanooga and Country of the rest of the terrorists Muzzie brothers, Obamas treasonous invaders and homies..

If the Marines weren't constrained by political correctness,they would gladly mop up all the muzzie terrorists on US soil, probably free of charge, for this insult to injury that never seems to stop flowing from the cesspool at 1600 Penisylvania Ave. All the services should be revaluating their allegiance to the Traitor in the White House and his minions in the ranks. America has a serious problem, its time to focus on the enemy WITHIN at all levels who HATE the military and the Constitution, before we become the fully destroyed country without..
