Under the current administration, the American people have had to deal with neglect when it comes to telling the truth and outright deceit. Unfortunately for Barack Obama, it seems that there’s at least one man in the nation willing to tell the truth — and he just put Obama in his place. With 12 marines dead, a general just exposed Obama with a surprising admission.
Many of us can recall the incident that took place January 14, when two CH-53E Sea Stallion helicopters collided while training off the coast of Hawaii. As a result, 12 American Marines lost their lives, but it seems that those responsible for the incident have most recently been exposed.

Rep. Mac Thornberry, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, asked Marine Corps General Robert Neller why the number of serious air accidents have been “increasing significantly” over the past three years. Without a second thought, he pointed right at Obama.
“We track this very closely and the simple fact is we don’t have enough airplanes to meet training requirements for the entire force,” he said. Just like that, the General slapped Obama with a nasty admission, blaming the severe budget cuts our military has sustained under our so-called commander-in-chief.
He went on to stress that the Marines currently deployed are “trained and ready,” but “non-deployed forces training may not be good enough,” according to Washington Examiner. Unfortunately, the 12 Americans lost in January are really just the tip of the iceberg, as the military is struggling to keep up after Obama has tied their hands.
Essentially, the problem is that the military is trying to cram too much into their training program, seeing how they’re no longer able to do it as effectively as they’d once been able to do. What this means is that ill-prepared service members are taking part in sporadic training exercises – and our brave volunteers in the military are the one’s paying for it.
“The real bill payer for underfunded readiness is lost lives. I think that helps bring it into context for all of us,” Thornberry said. The worst part in all this is the simple fact that Obama is just twiddling his thumbs over it. While he guts the military of all its worth and spends the money elsewhere, our president is effectively creating an environment for America to be left defenseless.
After all, if our men and women in the military can’t even make it out of training alive, how do you think it will end for them on a battlefield? We know Obama doesn’t like to interfere with his beloved Muslims, but the way he’s going about stopping that from happening is dangerous.
When a commander of our military comes forward and says, “Look, things are unsafe,” before selling out his commander-in-chief, I’d say we definitely have a problem. This goes far beyond politics – this is about the well-being of our nation and the safety of its people. I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to have a president in the Oval Office that not only loves this nation, but cares about the people who live here. Enough is enough with this crap already.
