Army colonel, former Chief of Staff for Colin Powell and Bush-Cheney administration insider, Lawrence Wilkerson says "yes."
He says he has been disabused of his views of the military as well as his perspectives on the Republican party, and describes the mutation of the Republican party from what it was as recently as under Roland Reagan to what it is today.
"This is crazy. This was what we do today. We do war. The old Federal Republic is dying."
