Peter Fuller removed from duty as a top Afghanistan commander for remarks to POLITICO

Post  youxieshi on Fri Nov 04, 2011 9:50 pm

Major Gen. Peter Fuller, a top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, was relieved of his duties Friday after comments he made to POLITICO disparaging Afghan President Hamid Karzai and calling the government’s

leaders “isolated from reality.”

Gen. John Allen, commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, ousted Fuller wholesale jerseys following what the coalition called his “inappropriate public comments.”

“These unfortunate comments are neither indicative of our current solid relationship with the government of Afghanistan, its leadership, or our joint commitment to prevail here in Afghanistan,” Allen said in a

statement.

“The Afghan people are an honorable people, and comments such as these willcheap mlb jerseysnot keep us from accomplishing our most critical and shared mission — bringing about a stable, peaceful and prosperous

Afghanistan,” he added.

Fuller was the deputy commander of the NATO Training Mission in nfl jerseys cheap Afghanistan and responsible for training Afghan security forces.

In a Thursday interview with POLITICO, Fuller, a two-star general, slammed Karzai’s recent remark that Afghanistan would side with Pakistan in a war against the U.S., blasting the president’s comments as

“erratic,” and adding, “Why don’t you just poke me in the eye with jerseys wholesale a needle! You’ve got to be kidding me. … I’m sorry, we just gave you $11.6 billion and now you’re telling me, ‘I don’t really care?’”

“When they are going to have a presidential election, you hope they yotoforum get a guy that’s more articulate in public,” Fuller added.

Fuller also criticized Afghan leaders as divorced from the economic realities of the United States.

“I said, ‘You guys are isolated from reality.’ The reality is, the world economy is having some significant hiccups. The U.S. is in this [too],” Fuller told POLITICO. “If you’re in a very poor country like

Afghanistan, you think that America has roads paved in gold, everybody cheap jerseys lives in Hollywood. They don’t understand the sacrifices that America is making to provide for their security. And I think that’s part of my

job — to educate ’em.”

He repeatedly said the Afghan leaders don’t appreciate the sacrifice that the United States was making in “blood and treasure” for the sake of their country.

Military officials said Fuller had been quoted accurately and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had been made aware of his comments to POLITICO, reported CNN.

The NATO statement did not say what Fuller would do next but such disciplinary action usually ends military careers, reports noted. Fuller has served in the armed forces for more than 30 years.

wholesale jerseys game highlights were also a staple of HBO's Inside the NFL for its entire run; this will continue on hat show's new network Showtime, in addition to having the company produce the show. NFL Films also produced for Showtime the five-part miniseries Full Color Football: The History of the American Football League, which aired in fall 2009 as part of the American Football League 50th anniversary celebration.NFL Films is famous for producing an annual highlight film for each team every season. If a team had a good year the film often revels in each victory, while breezing through, or skipping altogether, losses during the season. Inversely, if a team suffered through a poor season, the highlights commonly attempt to still show the team in a good light, however difficult that may be. Losses and pitiful play is commonly, and conveniently, edited out, leaving only isolated moments of success, prompting the viewer to not always realize how bad the team might have actually been. Most films conclude by portraying teams optimistically for the upcoming season, whether founded or not.The Sabols have used wholesale nfl jerseys to showcase their senses of humor, as in the Football Follies series. The Follies used blooper plays, outtakes and silly narration.Success Although NFL Films earns more than $50 million in revenue a year and is expanding at a double digit rate, compared to the $18 billion in revenue that the NFL earns from television alone, most consider this to be minor.
