The foundation of the problem with Colonel Vindman is that he has an overinflated view of his importance in his job with the National Security Council and he also felt as if he was entitled to provide information on the Ukraine and make proposals which, in his inflated self-view, meant that the President of the United States was wrong if he didn’t follow those points directly Really? Now isn’t that interesting? An Army Lieutenant Colonel, detailed as a mid-level staffer on the National Security Council in the White House, took it upon himself to assume that his views should be the words the President should have used in dealing with Ukrainian officials. Vindman is merely angry that his viewpoint was not one shared by the ultimate decision-maker, the President. He thinks he knows best and he said the President is wrong, even though it is the President who has to make the decisions and has the authority to do so, while Vindman is just, as we used to call them in my military days and pardon the expression, a “staff puke.”
I really wonder why the Army isn’t taking action against him for insubordination. In my day, someone taking his steps would be subject to a court martial, but then again, in my day we wouldn’t have found a President like our previous one, calling the cowardly Beau Bergdahl a hero and securing a release of him in return for returning five Islamic terrorists back to the battlefield. I am of the opinion when all is said and done, Vindman will be found out as the “squealer” who started this whole ridiculous and unfounded impeachment process. And remember, the squealer is the one who fed the so-called whistleblower his information. As for Vindman, maybe, just maybe he should take himself back to the Ukraine and accept the Defense Minister position with their government that he bragged he was offered. It sounds to me like his allegiance is more to the Ukraine under the old status quo than it is to the United States anyway. That’s just my opinion and I’m sticking to it.
