Yon: Tippity Top General attempts to Deceive Congressman (in writing)
“Happy Valentine’s Day. It isn’t Valentine’s for those who will get hit with bullets or bombs today. And it will happen. So let’s get down to business.
The top officer in the US Military is the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Chairman is the principal military advisor to President Obama.
Recently, Congressman Todd Akin from Missouri has taken up the cause of repairing the Army MEDEVAC failures.
Previously, the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) provided Congressman Akin with a deceptive, error-filled letter whose content could have been written by Baghdad Bob for Ripley’s Believe it or Not! You have to see it to believe it.
Congressman Akin continued to push, but he was stonewalled. Mr. Akin was undeterred and responded by redoubling his efforts. For example, he marshaled other concerned Members of Congress, and altogether 17 Members sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. ”
“On two occasions, Mr. Panetta did not respond to Mr. Akin. On the second occasion, Mr. Panetta passed the buck back to General Dempsey, the Chairman of the JCS.

General Dempsey clearly states that he is responding on behalf of Secretary Panetta, meaning that Mr. Panetta endorses the deception.
