General John Abizaid, who became the highest ranking Arab-American general officer in America's history and graduate of West Point has endorsed Audie. In addition he was the youngest four star general in the Army and the longest serving Commander in the history of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM).
General Abizaid for news junkies is a household name as he was mentioned in virtually every nightly newscast in 2003-2007 when he was Commander of CENTCOM. As CENTCOM Commander he was responsible for the overall conduct of the war and he was the successor of CENTCOM Commander General Tommy Franks, who has also signed the petition.
General Abizaid was also during his active duty time Commandant of Cadets at West Point.
General Abizaid is very respected and is an international expert on the Middle East, and has been knighted by the government of Australia.

Thanks,

Man! These endorsements just keep getting better and better. I don't think a cruise missile has a better rate of accuracy than your mailing list Dave! Shucks ... if the DoD folks had any sense, they'd patent your ability to sniff out the big ones and then classify it TOP SECRET 'cause it's definitely ON TARGET! :D

Dave,

I totally agree with Richard. You must have been a bloodhound in another life. It is just amazing the people you are finding and them signing this petition along with the comments most of them are putting on with their signature. I would say this is a major coup that you were able to secure this endorsement.

Richard:

Thanks! I do have a heck of a mailing list, don't I? Speaking of "on target" a couple rounds are impacting now.
"Shot Out!"

Thanks,


Dave
