Yeah, my post was already approaching TL;DR length so I tried to stay on the one subject. For a light Colonel in the US Army who has served in the political sphere to so fundamentally miss the fact that Trump has the sole authority to set foreign policy is just alarming. Most people reaching Field Grade officer level are just better than that. His fatbody status also tells me he will probably not make the cut at his next physical, will not be promoted again unless he can get into shape, and will be asked to retire at the one after that. He's a dead-ender and probably knows it.Vindman's quote draws a conclusion. Whether or not he demanded anything has yet been established, Brent. Other than that your post is spot on. Especially the tip of the hat to the separation of powers built into our Constitution.
