Obama critics over McChrystal
To those veterans who wrote protesting President Barack Obama’s actions in dealing with Gen. Stanley McChrystal, I have two things to say:
1. Thank you for your service. You fought for my right to freely write this response.
2. My father spent 22 years in the military, including World War II and Korea. He taught me that loyalty to your commanders is tantamount and to respect hierarchy.
Obama is the commander-in-chief. The actions of McChrystal were insubordinate and, frankly, shocking for a military officer of his stature. I see no other choice for his superior officer, the president, but to deal decisively with those actions. cheryl Veldman round rock
