And the President got mad at the Pentagon for not creating an impossible military plan. How dare the military impose "reality" on the President's political ambitions! When the President orders the generals to deploy the Hellfire missile crapping flying unicorns, the generals need to do it, no questions asked. The money quote:
The White House thought the Pentagon was disrespecting the president by refusing to propose a politically acceptable action plan, while the Pentagon became furious that White House officials didn't "seem to understand what military force can and cannot do,'' the official said.Too bad nobody pointed out Obama's lack of military experience and knowledge during the 2008 election.
