#1 "It is difficult to explain to our allies exactly why that is happening. It also sends a signal to our men and women in uniform," Earnest said.

No need to "explain" anything. Simply send Panetta or the General Allen's replacement. Had you not pulled General Allen out, you could have sent him! No need to make excuses or apologize for our constitutional process.

#3 It is difficult to explain to our allies
...because you know our allies are really stupid and can't understand anything or anyone which is why we have to tell them what to do.

#5 I suspect most of our allies are curious why Hagel was put up in the first place.

#6 Hagel is a Pub. The Pubs don't support him but the Donks do. Go figure. I must have taken a wrong turn somewhere and ended up down the rabbit hole.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
