Interesting Rumor Concerning General Carter Ham and Stand Down Order


” The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received
requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and
communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.

    General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move
to respond, his second in command
apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command. The story continues that now General
Rodiguez would take GeneralHam’s place as the head of Africon. ”


Rumor in Afghanistan: President Sucking Assets Away



” Apparently a huge percentage of our C17’s are being pulled for ‘Presidential Duty’ meaning instead of working to airlift troops and equipment in and out of Afghanistan and cover the other global logistics they are hauling the POTUS gear around on the campaign trail. If this is true I’d love someone to bring it to light. I lack the connections to check it out myself especially from here. I hope do hope this is pure rumor. It couldn’t possibly be legal even for the POTUS.  Fraud Waste & Abuse hotline anyone?

I’d think with the Obama campaign raising a record 181M in September they could afford to charter their own cargo planes and leave the military to do what it’s supposed to be doing . “
