Maj. Gen. Ralph Baker of US Africa Command fired


Officials said Maj. Gen. Ralph Baker, commander of the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa, was fired from his command last Thursday, and he was fined a portion of his pay by Gen. Carter Ham, head of U.S. Africa Command, after an administrative hearing and review. The officials said Thursday that Ham lost confidence in Baker’s ability to command.


I]( this day and age with what has been coming out of the White House it has occurred to me that perhaps the real underlying reason for this firing is to place someone in command who is more under the thumb of Obama.

This administration has been systematically worked to undermine confidence in the troops and their ability to fight.
