Tarantino attended a protest in NYC:

“I’m a human being with a conscience… And if you believe there’s murder going on then you need to rise up and stand up against it. I’m here to say I’m on the side of the murdered.”

His attendance and comments didn’t sit well with a lot of people, especially Lynch.

“It’s no surprise that someone who makes a living glorifying crime and violence is a cop-hater, too… “The police officers that Quentin Tarantino calls ‘murderers’ aren’t living in one of his depraved big-screen fantasies — they’re risking and sometimes sacrificing their lives to protect communities from real crime and mayhem.”

[General] Allen is reportedly frustrated with a lack of resources to counter the jihadist group, according to US officials. Allen had unsuccessfully lobbied administration officials for increased tactical air control teams to more efficiently target IS on the ground in Iraq, Bloomberg reported. Meanwhile, administration officials have portrayed his decision as one made out of concern for his wife’s poor health.

Of course they did. All bullshit all the time.

Dear General, you can’t go bombing the CIA’s trainees. That would be counterproductive.  You are a pawn with stars. Your little war is a show, a farce, a propaganda offensive to sell the idea that the US doesn’t like terrorists, when in fact your own bosses have helped create them.
