Ham was ordered to “stand down,” an action the administration denies, and was also relieved of his post.

Gen. James Mattis, a Marine legend, was recently unceremoniously rushed out the door as commander of U.S. Central Command allegedly for questioning administration policy on Iran. A pair of two-star Afghan commanders, Maj. Gen. Mark Gurganus and Maj. Gen. Gregg Sturdevant, were relieved allegedly for failing to provide “proper force protection” against Taliban attackers, a curious charge in light of the administration’s absurd rules of engagement.

Four U.S. generals in charge of running President Obama’s war in Afghanistan were either forced to resign or saw their careers tainted by allegations of wrongdoing: Gen. David McKiernan, Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, Gen. David Petraeus and Gen. John Allen saw charges ranging from impertinence to infidelity.
