    Certainly. Maybe Jim Zumbo can be the next president after him.

    He lost me when he published a completely false claim that the Navy was pressing charges against the Sailors in the recruiting station attack that fought back. Blatantly made up statement to stir up controversy. 
    I that that was War Criminal West


    Are you talking about Col. Allen West? I thought he was a good guy, who had saved some of his platoons lives under fire.
    No, he ended up costing lives with his actions. The dude is a dirt bag and General Ordienero protected him. At face value his actions look like he was just trying to save his men and get actionable intel to save lives. But there wasn't a single drop of credible intel, anywhere, at any level, that suggested that there was a threat against him and his men. And he crossed a hard line with detainee treatment and ended up alienating two towns against the coalition, allowed insurgents to operate in the town, and got more Americans killed.
    Of course his story, and that of his lawyer, is that there was credible intel, his actions uncovered the plot, and he saved the day.
    There was enough evidence agains him at the Article 32 hearing to move to Court Martial. Gen O forced him to retire rather than face courts martial.

    So name your perfect pick for NRA President. Attacking my statement without offering a viable 'more perfect' alternative than what we have is unhelpful. As to Jim Zumbo, I wouldn't trust him to guard the contents of a slit trench.
