Troubling News

SecDef Bill Gates ordered a change of command in Afghanistan. It happens. A four star general losing his job rather unceremoniously is a bit of news but what is most troubling abou this episode is the change of command as much as it is who is now replacing McKiernan. He is being replaced by a man who may very well be responsible for war crimes. This is troubling to me. How is it that a President elected on a message of change can then turn around and PROMOTE a man who might be a war criminal?

I am growing impatinet with the new President. This is very bad news.
