Top General, Gen. Martin Dempsey,cannot say what USA seeks in Syria

Top general cannot say what USA seeks in Syria

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey couldn’t answer what exactly the U.S. was seeking in Syria Tuesday during questioning from Sen. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) about a resolution authorizing military action there:

DEMPSEY: The answer to whether I support additional support for the moderate opposition is yes.

CORKER: And this authorization will support those activities in addition to responding to the weapons of mass destruction.

DEMPSEY: I don’t know how the resolution will evolve, but I support –

CORKER: What you’re seeking. What is it you’re seeking?

DEMPSEY: I can’t answer that, what we’re seeking.

What a mess, I would want direct answers for something like this to have a clear mind on what is to be expected and especially for our troops.

Obama being an itiot I can understand. After all, he doesn't have the first clue about the military or military operations but the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs? What the heck is leading our Armed Forces?
