His true colors being that of the covering-up, torturing and assassinating kind with his choice for the new general to lead Afghanistan operations.
The parents of slain Army Ranger and NFL star Pat Tillman voiced concerns Tuesday that the general who played a role in mischaracterizing his death could be put in charge of military operations in Afghanistan.
It was a point of pride that the Red Cross would never be allowed in the door, Jeff says. This is important because it defied the Geneva Conventions, which require that the Red Cross have access to military prisons. “Once, somebody brought it up with the colonel. ‘Will they ever be allowed in here?’ And he said absolutely not. He had this directly from General McChrystal and the Pentagon that there’s no way that the Red Cross could get in â€” they won’t have access and they never will. This facility was completely closed off to anybody investigating, even Army investigators.”
There is a lot of talk being thrown around about new directions and new thinking, but what stops manyâ€”and rightly soâ€”are the questions about how McChrystal, as commander of the Joint Special Operations Command, is implicated in allegations of torture, assassinations, and general disregard for rules.
