Skip to comments.U.S. general: Obama paralyzed by fear (author is MOH winner)

Now I understand! For years, many veterans and active military have been alarmed about the idiocy of the changes in battlefield aeromedical evacuation known as Dust Off. For reasons having nothing to do with patient care, Dust Off has been removed from the control of the professionals, the medics, and put under the control of amateurs, aviation staff officers, or ASOs. This is the first such change since the Civil War.
I document the unparalleled excellence of Dust Off, and the effects of the changes, in my book, Dead Men Flying. Needless to say, it was the most outstanding battlefield operating system of that war some one million souls saved and unprecedented survival rates. No warrior of Vietnam is more revered than the Dust Off crews.

Do you think we will find out what Obama was doing during Benghazi, and who gave the stand down order, and what their reasoning was?
All great presidential have a ton of operational experience. Obama has no operational experience.
A dead ambassador cannot as easily testify at a congressional hearing as a live one can.
Obama doesn’t give a damn about anything other than the destruction of The United States. If by some miracle he is forced out before a third term, I’m convinced he’ll retire to Indonesia...with or without his supposed family.
Or they are capable of learning how. Lincoln had none, except a short time in the Black Hawk War. But he seems to have enjoyed it. He was not a hunter, but a good shot and good horseman. At times, after his generals failed him, he thought of taking to the field him ,as no President since George Washington had. One reason he liked Grant was because Grant took the fight to the enemy. One reason why he brought Grant to Washington and made him Lieutenant-general—that is the right arm of the President was that he had carefully studied how to take Vicksburg. He even had a plan in mind, which he revealed in a letter to Grant. When Grant sprung the surprise that trapped the Confederates, he also surprised Lincoln, who admiringly conceded to Grant that he was wrong and Grant was right. He knew then he had a commander like Robert E..Lee to match Lee.
Agreed. I continue to be outright shocked as to how many so-called ‘Americans’ talk about 0bama like he’s trying his best to help America recover or that he loves America. He’s trying his best to eviscerate the private sector so that the government ends up filling the void.. In his view, a 55% death tax is GREAT because it prevents families from keeping their farms.. GREAT! 0bama would love nothing more than for the government to operate 100% of our farms or agricultural business then threaten us with no food unless we do as they say.. Agenda 21 is being implemented as we speak. And people scratch their heads because they don’t understand why kids aren’t allowed to have lemonade stands...
I don’t think Obama is paralyzed by fear at all. Rather he is protected by hubris, and the power we ALLOW him to believe he has.
America needs to listen to these veterans. They understand leadership. They know how to deal with risk in war. They would not want this man with them in combat or crisis. They never left a needy comrade behind. Obama did.
This article was published Nov. 4, 2012; two days before the election. Pat Brady's advice went unheeded by a majority of American voters. Let the blood be on their hands too.
With the recent betrayal of some operatives, he should fear.
Those people do not threaten.
If the GOP simply exposed what they “Know” about him, this nightmare would end. They won’t.
A concussed SOS will not testify, either. :)
Fear is waaay too generous of a criticism for systematic destruction of a nation, by a prez with a 53% approval rating giving him a green light for more of the same.
Ah, Obama should love this book then. It's all about corpsemen.
BTW - you don’t “win” the Medal of Honor...
He was probably stoked on stuff with his Chome pals higher than a kite.
The GOP can not expose Obama without exposing themselves. The GOP, indeed, the majority of our government are all in on “the fix”. The big time fix.
The window of opportunity is wide open for the usurpers of freedom.
Those of us that see this have no recourse but to bear their impotence to fight it.
Because there is only one way to really fight it.
And this is why a decade of intense combat in the middle east has produced so few MOH. They can be pains in the a$$, and tend to get listened to. The political and military leadership realllly dislikes that.
Kabuki theater. Deflection.
Tell the people what they want to hear, and they will not see (or do) what must be done.
It is all about status quo. Comfort. The easy way.
Meh, I am old, no children. I can live without the fight that should be fought, and I suspect will never be fought.
I can ride through town, yelling that the British are coming, but none will care. I'll yell none the less.
Laws and regulations that this government proposes outside of constitutional bounds, are unconstitutional. Sounds kind of dumb to say such a thing, right?
But, if you are young think about it!!! Unconstitutional.
Is the constitution relevant or not? Will you allow the government to use their interpretation of the constitution against you, or will you use your God Given rights as outline in the Constitution, to......keep your freedom?
One thing we should not consider is the “approval rating” of a president.
Ratings can be manipulated in many ways. Especially when immigration from non-republics are considered. I am speaking of all considerations. We have immigrants with no concept of REAL freedom.
The enemy within sometimes does not know it is the enemy. Sometimes WE do not know it is the enemy.
We best wake up real quick.
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty, Maj. Brady distinguished himself while serving in the Republic of Vietnam commanding a UH-1H ambulance helicopter, volunteered to rescue wounded men from a site in enemy held territory which was reported to be heavily defended and to be blanketed by fog. To reach the site he descended through heavy fog and smoke and hovered slowly along a valley trail, turning his ship sideward to blow away the fog with the backwash from his rotor blades. Despite the unchallenged, close-range enemy fire, he found the dangerously small site, where he successfully landed and evacuated 2 badly wounded South Vietnamese soldiers. He was then called to another area completely covered by dense fog where American casualties lay only 50 meters from the enemy. Two aircraft had previously been shot down and others had made unsuccessful attempts to reach this site earlier in the day. With unmatched skill and extraordinary courage, Maj. Brady made 4 flights to this embattled landing zone and successfully rescued all the wounded. On his third mission of the day Maj. Brady once again landed at a site surrounded by the enemy. The friendly ground force, pinned down by enemy fire, had been unable to reach and secure the landing zone. Although his aircraft had been badly damaged and his controls partially shot away during his initial entry into this area, he returned minutes later and rescued the remaining injured. Shortly thereafter, obtaining a replacement aircraft, Maj. Brady was requested to land in an enemy minefield where a platoon of American soldiers was trapped. A mine detonated near his helicopter, wounding 2 crewmembers and damaging his ship. In spite of this, he managed to fly 6 severely injured patients to medical aid. Throughout that day Maj. Brady utilized 3 helicopters to evacuate a total of 51 seriously wounded men, many of whom would have perished without prompt medical treatment. Maj. Brady’s bravery was in the highest traditions of the military service and reflects great credit upon himself and the U.S. Army.
