Afghanistan: Major General Disembedded from US Forces

How many Generals and other senior commanders have been fired in this war?  I lost count a long time ago.  It’s more than a busload.  Interestingly, MG Fuller got disembedded for the same reasons I did.  Public Affairs warned me in writing about things I was writing.  The general was fired for comments deemed inappropriate.

If this were back closer to the beginning of the war, his comments might be deemed naïve.  But today, they are probably the result of being tired of BS after a decade of blood and billions.

Gen. John Allen, commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, ousted Fuller following what the coalition called his “inappropriate public comments.”
