    One of former President George W Bush’s key foreign policy chiefs has endorsed Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in a dramatic sign that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee is being abandoned by the party’s national security establishment.

    Several retired generals, some with Republican links, have privately voiced serious misgivings over Mr Trump’s candidacy and are said to be debating whether to speak out. Politico quoted one former general, who served as a commander under President Barack Obama, as predicting that a group of senior military figures “probably will try to energise something”.

    Interesting. General officers "energizing something"? Should we expect a Republican version of "Seven Days in May July"?

    Not that it changes my poor opinion of Armitage, one of the Neocons who got us into the Iraq War debacle.
