The US intelligence community was in an uproar on Wednesday when General Mike Flynn, the leader of the largest and most effective intelligence agency in the world, abruptly announced his retirement. Rumors swirled that the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency was stepping down in the aftermath of a Petraeus-like sex scandal, or that he was forced out by firmly entrenched bureaucrats in his own agency who bristled at his “always out front” leadership philosophy. None of this speculation turned out to be true, however. In a bombshell revelation, anonymous sources close to the White House revealed that the real reason Flynn is retiring, and why many other generals will soon follow suit, is because President Obama is set to repeal the Bush-era American Service Members’ Protection Act (ASMPA).
