Gen. Jim Jones Defends Basing Military Policy On Reason And Fact

You may not know Mr. Steely Blues-Eyes above by face alone, but one fellow AARP member who does is Sarah Palin’s father former running mate John McCain.

Assuming Gramps McCain is still working with a full deck of cards, he should have no problems recognizing the man he slandered on the Senate floor last week, when he accused White House National Security Adviser Jim Jones and others in the Obama administration of “kowtowing to the political left” exactly like he did to the right on his kamikaze campaign that cost him the election, his soul, and his integrity in one fell swoop, err make that wink.

Because this retired U.S. Marine Corps four-star general and current Obama National Security Adviser “takes exception” when one of his white-haired military compatriots has the balls to use his good name when uttering shameless lies on the floor of Congress.

Speaking on CNN’s State of the Union, Jones blasted McCain’s remark on the basis of it being the complete opposite of true, insisting that President Obama’s decision whether to send more U.S. troops to Afghanistan has nothing do with political pressure from the hippie-dippie left.

“The strategy does not belong to any political party,” Jones said. “And I can assure you that the President of the United States is not playing to any political base.”

Seeming almost offended at the mere notion he would put political pandering ahead of what’s best for the country (become a Republican?), Jones, said, “I’ve known John McCain a long time, I worked with him when he was a captain.”

McCain, Jones said, knows that “I don’t play politics and I certainly don’t play politics with our national security.”

That’s a certain maverick from Arizona’s department. Oh, you betcha it is!
