Kampfschrift: US-Nationalheld steigt gegen Trump in den Ring

„Wenn Du die Welt verändern willst, beginne damit, dein Bett zu machen“. Mit Buch-Lebensweisheiten wie diesen ist normalerweise selbst in Amerika nicht viel Auflage zu machen.

Es sei denn, der Autor ist ein hochdekorierter Navy-Admiral namens William H. McRaven und verwickelt den Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten gerade, um im Bild zu bleiben, in eine beispiellose politische Kissenschlacht.

Revoke my security clearance, too, Mr. President

Dear Mr. President:

Former CIA director John Brennan, whose security clearance you revoked on Wednesday, is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.

Therefore, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.

France Had Some Big Problems Firing Missiles at Syria

The three naval cruise missiles fired from the French frigate Languedoc were initially intended to come from a different French frigate whose first salvo simply “did not fire,” French Joint Chief of Staff spokesman Col. Patrick Steiger told Defense News.

Steiger stated the cause of the misfire was currently unknown; Navy Recognition notes that the launch constituted the first time that the French military had ever actually fired its new MdCN (or “Missile de Croisiere Naval”) naval cruise missiles.
