Kabul Update

 From the Washington Examiner:

I understand that the commanding general of the 82nd Airborne Division has told the commander of the British special forces at the Kabul airport to cease operations beyond the airport perimeter.

Maj. Gen. Christopher Donahue has told his British Army counterpart, a high-ranking field-grade officer of the British army's 22nd Special Air Service Regiment, that British operations were embarrassing the United States military in the absence of similar U.S. military operations. I understand that the British officer firmly rejected the request.

Kudos to the Brits!  Our Major General Christopher Donahue deserved to be rebuffed in the strongest possible terms.  In fact,the simple observation that "Dickhead" Donahue has a Wiki page tells us all we need to know about the size of his ego.  A West Point graduate with all the correct merit badges and awards for valor,, at some point he lost the idea that his true mission is to protect the innocent. 

If this report is true, (and I have no reason to suspect it is not), Major General "Dickhead" Donahue should be immediately relived and on the first plane out of the Theater of Operation.  "Talents no longer needed in the Theater of Operations" should be underlined and highlighted on his retirement OER.

If true, (and I have no reason to believe otherwise) "Dickhead" Donahue has just damaged the reputation and history of one of the greatest American divisions in modern history.

I would have loved to be a fly on the wall during that conversation. Who does NO GUTS, NO BALLS Donahue (related to Phil?) think he is. If he actually gave a shit he would have joined the Brits and helped them evacuate BOTH Countries Civilians and Afghan Helpers
