For those who’ve ever served and have ever worn the uniform, you especially know of what I speak, in that for any member of the armed forces while still on active duty to publicly call out the Commander-in-Chief is perhaps the riskiest thing an individual can do.

If you’re the Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, you obviously risk being demoted, or worst yet perhaps forced to resign your commission, and even fired.

However that didn’t stop Commandant General James Amos, a disabled Iraq veteran, to go public in his criticisms of the president, taking to Twitter to voice his concerns.

According to Fox News, General Amos claims that things would have been extraordinarily different under another president.

“Had we had the right forces, the right leadership, the right mentoring, the right government, courage…” we might not be in the situation we are in, claims the General. “I find it hard to believe, knowing how Iraq looked when we left in 2010…that we would be in the position we’re in today in Iraq.”

What makes the General’s outright and almost unprecedented criticism of this administrations handling of events within the Middle East, is that the General is still on active duty.

By inference is stating publicly that President Obama and his administration are solely responsible for the chaos created within the Middle East, and to the good General “Semper Fi.”

Watch the clip below to hear the General in his own words:

Do you agree with General James Amos?
