President Trump is expected to switch out commanders across the Middle East and Europe in the administrations most dramatic change to the US military leadership so far, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal. The Journal reported that the personnel shifts will affect officers fighting in the Middle East, as well as those working to counter Russia, overseeing Guantanamo Bay and engaging in stealth operations around the world.

I hope he is dealing with the Obama butt boys.
Do these media a-holes ever know when to zip there treasonous mouths? have they never heard the expression “Loose lips sink ships”?
The draining of the swamp continues.
Sounds like a good plan. They forgot to say when this will occur. The media is given all this information and there is no date set. Something doesn’t smell right.
The expression they support is .... "Loose lips sell laundry detergent".
This is how he deals with the past obama butt boys. They are more entrenched at DOJ and FBI though..
If that’s the case, then they need to have their mouths washed out with BORAX!
Let’s pray that he cleans house and appoints some badass combat veterans.
I just read the entire article and found no information that wasn't open sourced and appropriate for public discussion.

I don’t think any of this should be public knowledge. Period.
LTG Clark is the real deal too. Both are great selections.
Do these media a-holes ever know when to zip there treasonous mouths? have they never heard the expression Loose lips sink ships?
I think it’s all a matter of public record. For instance, Stars and Stripes regularly publishes things like this for the Army.
JME_FAN is a known troll, ignore it.
By now Sec. Mattis knows what should be done.
De-pussifying MIL hopefully.
The DOD News releases are available to all and you can receive them by email.
it’s fine. Some are centered around filling retirement slots with those who need to add a command to their resume before they, too, retire, and some likely to counterbalance mission changes of foreign players. Doubtful it will turn into a 200+ officer purge like Zero pulled.
