"The Betray Us Flap:" The Democrats Always Listen To Their Generals

As displayed herewith in:

General John Singlaub - In 1977, while John Singlaub was chief of staff of U.S. forces in South Korea, he publicly criticized President Jimmy Carter's decision to withdraw some U.S. troops from the Korean peninsula. On March 21, 1977, Carter relieved him of duty for overstepping his bounds and failing to respect the President's authority as Commander-in-Chief." source: WIKIPEDIA.ORG

General Douglas MacArthur - General of the Army Douglas MacArthur HonGCB[1](January 26, 1880 – April 5, 1964), was an American general and Field Marshal of the Philippine Army. He was a Chief of Staff of the United States Army during the 1930s and later played a prominent role in the Pacific theater of World War II, receiving the Medal of Honor. He was designated to command the invasion of Japan in November 1945, and when that was no longer necessary he officially accepted their surrender on September 2, 1945.
MacArthur oversaw the occupation of Japan from 1945 to 1951 and is credited for implementing far-ranging democratic changes. He led the United Nations Command forces defending South Korea in 1950–1951 against North Korea's invasion. MacArthur was removed from command by President Harry S Truman in April 1951 for insubordination relating to his failure to follow presidential directives.
He is credited with the military dictum, "In war, there is no substitute for victory." MacArthur fought in three major wars (World War I, World War II, Korean War) and was one of only five men ever to rise to the rank of General of the Army.

And as to Hillary Clinton's "willing suspenion of disbelief", the only response has to be - When Bill finally ‘fessed up about his affair with Monica Lewinsky, Hillary said in "Living History" this made her 'feel like she been punched in the stomach.'
