A former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said this morning that he worries about "how good outcomes come out of" three retired generals being leaned on for stability in the executive branch.

During an Oct. 6 address at the Naval Institute, retired Adm. Mike Mullen, who spent four years leading the Joint Chiefs during the Bush and Obama administrations, asked, "How did we get here to a point where we are depending on retired generals for the stability of our system? And what happens if that bulwark breaks, first of all?"

"I have been in too many countries globally where the generals, if you will, gave great comfort to their citizens," Mullen added. "That is not the United States of America."







IMHO Bridget Missed the larger point Mike Mullens was making....it's not a good thing for Flag Rank officers to get publicly involved of politics.
