From: Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Former Director of Defense Intelligence Agency [DIA]
To: Hillary Clinton
RE: A Serious Warning-> Pull Out of the Presidential Race While You Are Being Investigated by the FBI.
When a Senior Military Officer of the US says something serious, it would be behoove the American people to listen. When a former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Michael Flynn, says the following, then the storm clouds of discontent are gathering overhead:
“If it were me [sending classified emails] I would have been out the door and probably in jail…” He decried what he said was a “lack of accountability, frankly, in a person who should have been more responsible as the secretary of state of the USA.” [Nicole Gaouette 2/13/2016, CNN].
I met General Flynn when he was the Director of DIA. I was invited by someone else to attend a seminar that he was convening, with all types of intelligence analysts and academic social scientists. At his behest, Mike ordered the attendees and presenters to share their respective knowledge and experience with each other regarding Actionable Intelligence and its future uses. From my personal and professional point of view, Gen. Flynn is a very serious intelligence operative-- in the fullest and best sense of the word. He is what I and others have called, “The Professionals’ Professional” in the field of civilian/military intelligence.
When the spokesman for Clinton’s campaign pushed back, stating the Flynn’s suggestion was ‘just silly’, Flynn soberly retorted:
“The over-classification excuse IS NOT AN EXCUSE!..It’s [emails] classified… it’s CLASSIFIED!”
Flynn went on to add:
“Clinton knew better, given the roles that she had as a senator, a secretary of state, and even back when she was married to the POTUS…. She was going to HAVE PRIVILEGED INFORMATION IN THAT REGARD.”
There is a reason why I am harping on the words of this talented intelligence military officer. Our military has been subservient for too long to the whims and ethereal proclamations of the White House, State Dept. Sec. Def. and other civilian organizations. In reality, our military deftly controls our destinies in both domestic and foreign policy areas. As much as a civilian president or Cabinet Officer imagines him/herself to be in charge of any element of our foreign policy, he/she are automatically beholden to our US military, one way or another. This holds true of the CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, State Dept.
Without elaborating on the subtext of Flynn’s statement, I can only add a caution to Hillary and her cohorts: Don’t mess with Gen Michael Flynn! The words he says are the silent expression of millions of US veterans, who have become disgusted with the Clinton Family abuses within our republic. The US military has one of the highest tolerances of any organization for allowing civilians to falter in a crisis which eventually they, the military, will have to resolve/reconstitute.Witness the disasters of Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. Hillary voted for military action in all of those fronts while Bill managed to avoid military service completely as a ‘draft dodger’ and treated our troops cavalierly.
Former Sec Def and ex-DCI , Robert Gates, in his overstuffed novel [autobiography] proffered a very ominous warning to the military:
“Do not engage in any activities that might be construed as a military coup.” The looming fear of a US military coup is ever present in every administration that has not had a President who had not served in the US military.
Clearly, the past three POTUSs, Clinton, Bush Jr, and Obama have abused our military for their personal gain; while at the same time, our military restrained themselves from moving into a ‘strike position’ targeted at the WH. I have warned my fellow countrymen not to take for granted the number of brave warriors who died in overseas wars that we, as civilians, could not justify then, or even now.
In my novel, Maximum Vigilance, I postulated what would happen if POTUS were found to be incapacitated. The military took over the country through a few subtle series of actions.. and then… imposed Martial Law. That was twenty years ago.
The warning to Hillary and her sycophants is really quite simple:
Betray us today, and, we, the American people, will betray you tomorrow!
Let me end with a Latin proverb :
“When its time has come, the prey goes to the hunter.”
