President Barack Obama is remaking the U.S. military to fit his ideals of political correctness, retired Army Gen. Paul Vallely says.
"For example, we had an Air Force sergeant that was relieved of his duty by a squadron commander who was a woman – she's a lesbian – and he did not believe in same-sex marriages, so he was relieved by her," Vallely told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.
"So, you have not only the PC of falling in line and social engineering in the military, but it's up and down the ranks that are being purged ... for standing up in some cases but not falling in line with the Obama ideologues," he said Tuesday.
Vallely said some top officers have taken the fall.
"We had a general relieved in Iraq last year, a little over a year ago, another one in Afghanistan, and then, of course, you saw what Gen. [David] Petraeus went through with his venture with Paula Broadwell," he said.
"Some of it is misconduct. But certainly some, if we look at Benghazi, we know some of them have been purged who are not able to speak out on the stand-down order there. So, you've got a situation where they are being purged for a number of different reasons."
