Protecting the US is on the list, but farther down

General Dempsey says protecting the US from attack is on his list of priorities - but down the list.

He is busy… Top priority is survival of the US. Good. Next, the stability of the global economic system. Huh? Maybe the Treasury Department should worry more about that than our armed military.

Third priority is to protect the US from attack. Who could imagine the US being attacked? On 9/11/2001!. Fourth priority is to promote American values abroad.

That puts the military at odds with our Secretary of State John F Kerry. He is making fun of you and me and our values in other countries. He told a group of students in Germany Monday "you have a right to be stupid if you want to be." Maybe Kerry should be assigned to protect the US from attack, so the military and promote our values.
