A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. Marcus Tillius Cicero

GOFO - General Officer Flag Officer. 

The folk - GO (Army, Air Force, Marine) FO (Navy, Coast Guard) - in military uniform entrusted with stars; one to four. 

They, as all in uniform, swear oath - that includes to defend and protect the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.

The oath is not alignment to President nor Congress. 

The oath vows  allegiance to country. 

Yesterday came announcement the Department of Justice dropped charges against General Flynn.

The more than three years witch hunt over; partly.  

General Flynn was set up. 

An enormous scarring personal and professional price he and family paid. 

Obama's men and women did it. And President Obama knew.

Round them up. All of them. Read them their rights. 

Now, what has not been asked (at least not that I've seen in the public forum), "Did any GOFOs (generals and admirals), especially three and four stars, know what was going on?" 

It seems inconceivable they did not.

If not, what does that say about intelligence capabilities?

So, who knew?

What did they do? 

To have done nothing more than complicity; at least coward(s), at worst conspirator(s). 

Oath, duty, compromised. Every leadership trait (and principle), too. 

Considering (highest government level) conspiracy with objective to take down a fairly elected President, treat as suspected traitors - party to treason. Domestic enemies. 

Round them up. All of them (the probables). Read them their rights. 

In the mean time, make ready gallows and firing details.

Just imagine a President Hillary Clinton. 

Oh, those foreign enemies - China, Iran, North Korea?

Visible their banners.

But our Republic will not survive, as Cicero noted, the sly whispers of traitors.

Concur that the senior GOFO community, especially select individuals in the Washington orbit, almost certainly knew. It is inconceivable that the Executive branch would have acted without some level of complicity and acceptance within the three branches of government and their respective departments. Shameful. Treasonous.

Won't happen, albeit it's nice to talk about it. Lady Justice is no longer blind. Oaths moaths, mean nothing anymore, except for some small portion of our society. Sad, Very sad.
