RETIRED LT. (3 STAR) GENERAL RUSSEL HONORÉ
Last night Tonya stayed up into the Wee Hours watching CNN Live from Ferguson, Missouri in amazement. To me it is obvious The Ferguson Police, State Police and National Guard don’t have a clue. We kept asking ourselves “Who is in charge? Who is in command? Why the provocation?” I’m still asking these same questions this morning. Every wrong move the Authorities could have made they did. This is a SNAFU of the highest order. Tonya and I both said at the same time, “We need Honoré.” Honoré is retired Lieutenant General Russel L. Honoré. He’s the Man who became a Hero in how he took over and brought order in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. On a whim I called up Lt. General Honoré this morning and asked his opinion, he said “he would do a lot of things differently.” I asked him if he got the call would he be ready to go to work, take command of this dire situation. Lt. General Honoré said “yes.” The best man in the United States of America to bring peace and order to the madness we have seen nightly is sitting by the phone in Louisiana, watching what we are watching. President Obama, please make that call because the Authorities are in over their heads and its Amateur time. My President, it’s great that you are sending U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson but make that call to Louisiana. We need Leaders on the ground who have experience, the skill sets and most importantly the sensitivity to know how to talk to people, have sympathy for the rage, anger and distrust the people feel about the Police of Ferguson, Missouri. Honoré will do the job that needs to be done. Retired Lt. General Russel L. Honoré is the Man with the Plan, he will calm this storm. What is the holdup?
