    Top General Takes 'Umbrage' at GOP Candidate Claims Military is 'Gutted'
    top-ranking American general said he takes “umbrage with the notion that our military has been gutted,” a claim made by several Republican presidential candidates on the campaign trail.

    While releasing details Tuesday about the Obama administration’s $582.7 billion defense budget request for 2017, Air Force Gen. Paul Selva, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was asked about claims.

    “I won’t be argumentative but I will take umbrage with the notion that our military has been gutted,” said Selva.

    “I stand here today a person that’s worn this uniform for 35 years," he added. “At no time in my career have I been more confident than this instant in saying we have the most powerful military on the face of the planet."
