Actually, I said the exact opposite! You can't even be honest when it is obvious you can't lie your way out of it. Liberalism, the bane of the world!

Someone that was made a one star flag officer in OBozo's first 5 years (and it takes presidential authorization to be a flag officer) would now be wearing three or four stars and would be in the upper echelon of the various branches of the military. I saw it happening when I dropped retirement papers. It was no longer sufficient to just be good at your job, if you wanted to make the upper ranks of both the officer and enlisted components you had to be of a certain political ideology.

I\of course I am certain that the various mindless minions, none of whom were career military personnel, will probably tell me that I didn't see what I saw.
The political upper echelons of the military were already floating to the top of the cesspool in Vietnam. Latter Schwartzkopf managed to thread the needle and still be effective. I worked for a brigadier that was a hard charger much like Schwartzkopf, he lasted about six months in the politically charged atmosphere of the Saigon elites. I knew right then we were going to lose that war.
I watched Powell in action in NATO he was powerful and effective, but he slowly went over to the play-along to get along political faction of the military. More a statesman than a combat general.
I was a nobody but I was intelligent enough to see the big picture in a parochial sort of way and kept my mouth shut and my ears open.
