Sooo Classy: Obama Adm. Booted General Via Public Announcement of His Replacement

Report: Washington Didn’t Even Tell Marine Gen. He Was Being Replaced |

Marine Corps General James Mattis was appointed Commander of the U.S. Central Command in 2010.  Apparently his review and questioning of U.S. military  policy rankled the civilian officials sufficiently that he was summarily booted.

The method of dismissal?    General Mattis was indirectly notified subsequent to a public Pentagon announcement of his replacement.   An aide who saw the  announcement, passed the General a note while he was in a meeting.

Sooo classy.  This is how much regard the Commander in Chief has for those who serve him in the military.

Incidentally, Mattis is said to be  well regarded by his military colleagues, and respected for his independence of thought and professionalism.   Perhaps that DOES make him unsuitable for service in the Obama administration.
