Gen. Allen: 'Hillary Is the Commander-in-Chief We Need'
Retired Marine Gen. John Allen gave a ringing endorsement of Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention, saying she's the commander-in-chief the country needs.
"We trust in her judgment. We believe in her vision for a United America. We believe in her vision of an America as a just and strong leader against the forces of hatred, the forces of chaos and darkness."
The former presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL (ISIS) said that Clinton knows how to use "all instruments of American power, not just the military, to keep us all safe and free."
At this moment, the crowd began a loud chant of "U-S-A."
"My fellow Americans, I tell you without hesitation or reservation, that Hillary Clinton will be exactly the kind of commander-in-chief America needs. I know this because I served with her."
Earlier, Allen told The Kelly File that Clinton understands that America is "the indispensable power - but that we don't do it alone."
He said that Donald Trump, who said he would use the military as an instrument of torture or to systematically murder the families of suspected terrorists, "we're putting ourselves on the edge of a civil military crisis that we've never seen before in this country."
