‘Litmus test’ for new leaders?

To the Editor:

I receive many things on my e-mail. Two of them regularly are NEWSMAX and the Tea Party News. I consider both, most of the time, to be reasonable and informative sources.

This item came form the Tea Party and I hesitate to list it, but I will.

According to the source, President Obama is asking new military leaders if they would “fire on U.S citizens”!

This is reported by one of America’s foremost military heroes, Jim Garrow, a 2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee.

He claims he was told by a top military veteran that the Obama Administration’s “litmus test” for new military leaders is whether or not they would obey an order to “fire on U.S. citizens.”

Like I said, it is pretty hard to accept.
