2. The way that she keeps describing Bannon,

 

she evidently doesn't know Bannon's military history and education.

4. He served for 7 years 30+ years ago

Doesn't qualify him to be a current military expert

7. She should mention them nonetheless, to conceal such relevant information makes her dishonest, his

 

background in national security experience is significant.

13. Yeah, she's going to mention his full educational history in a tweet?

Why don't you consolidate Bannon's qualifications into 140 characters and tweet it to Joy Reid so she can use it.

Sorry that dog won't hunt.

10. Exactly! Not qualified, racist, and political!

 

Exactly all the qualities we don't need in our NatSec.

8. There are tens of thousands of former junior officers with master's degrees

Bannon has no experience in national security, period.

9. It is the specifics that make the difference, look at his wiki page, she didn't even look at wiki.

12. Steve Bannon fan are ya?

Look, just because she didn't go to WikiPedia and place some info on what he did 30 + yrs ago doesn't make what she tweeted any less accurate.

He's a fucking Nazi who doesn't get to use meager credits for making decisions that led to the death of a SEAL and 10+ civilians. Never mind the fact that no one seems to be talking about the fact they (the compound they raided) seemed to know about their attack ahead of time--so if this is the result of his 7 military years and his masters degree, I'll pass, thanks.

I mean, I took some college courses 20 years ago on theoretical religion, doesn't make me an expert on world religions.

18. That has nothing to do with my post, which was about the misleading description that ignored his

 

Masters and Pentagon duties entirely, when her whole point required that they be mentioned.

3. Joy is the best, and she's working at MSNBC without a contract. She may be gone soon along with ...

Tamron Hall as NBC makes room for former faux noise wingers Greta van Susteren and Megan Kelly.

The NABJ is calling the move whitewashing, especially in Kelly's case as she has made many offensive and racist remarks in the past (just one being her calling the bikini-clad AA teenager at a pool party who was viciously manhandled, tackled and sat on by a white cop in Texas, "no angel".

She made such a glaringly biased pronouncement hundreds of miles away on-air in FOX's New York studio with no knowledge of the teen's character. And there are other incidents, yet NBC hires her and puts her in Hall's time slot.

No wonder Tamron Hall quit after that.

I hope Joy isn't next. She's so good and should have gotten the slot Van Susteren, a warned-over, not that good FOX refugee, got.

19. So, who cared so little about the troops?

Remember the troops and all the betrayals of the troops by the Obama administration? Oh, it was horrible, not sending the troops into Syria or Israel or Mexico or someplace else for ill-defined objectives, lethal risks, and dubious results. It was almost as if President Obama didn't want to waste the lives of the troops.

Well, now there's a new sheriff in town, and the troops are going to be out there blowing women, kids and houses to Kingdom Come, getting ambushed, and dying for the greater glory of President Trump. Who decided the Yemen raid was a good idea? Who approached whom: Did the Pentagon figure the new administration would be inexperienced enough not to know a bad plan when they saw it? Or did the Trump administration go fishing for a gung-ho half-baked plan in pursuit of a public relations victory?

Either way it went, someone involved didn't care about the risks, only the potential reward. President Trump couldn't even be bothered to show up in the Situation Room while William Owens was dying at his command. And why did the military originally say that no civilians had been killed in the raid? Who authorized the announcement of that lie? If this is what the White House says is a very successful operation, I'd hate to see what they would consider a failure.
