Duke’s Legendary Coach Wins National Championship… Then Says THIS About Obama

Duke's hugely successful basketball coach just admitted THIS about Obama's military strategy... Obama is furious the coach said this to the media.
This coach should be applauded for this bold stand.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski of the legendary Duke Blue Devils, the newly-minted NCAA men’s basketball champions, let the world know his political views at an Army awards conference — views that echo the sentiment of millions of Americans.
As he accepted the award in front of a group of Army officers, defense contractors and Army supporters, Coach K criticized President Barack Obama for publicly announcing that he didn’t intend to deploy ground troops to fight the radical militants of the Islamic State group.
 “I know it’s upsetting to many of you when you hear ‘no boots on the ground,'” Coach K said. “It upsets me too because that’s like saying I’m not going to play two of my best players.”He went on to explain the fundamentals of war-planning to the commander in chief, saying, “It’s about letting your opponent know that we are going to use our best players. Now whether you use them or not, that’s up to the coach. You never tell an opponent you are not going to use them.”
His public critique of Obama wasn’t the first time he’d had words for the president. In 2009, when Obama picked North Carolina to win the NCAA March Madness tournament, Coach K said that Obama should spend time fixing the economy instead of filling out a bracket.
Krzyzewski has street cred in the military world, having graduated from the U.S. Military Academy and then served in the Army from 1969-1974 during the Vietnam War.
According to Yahoo Sports, he offered up a special thanks to the Army veterans in attendance at the award ceremony, thanking them for their service.
“I want to thank you for the countless times your boots have been on the ground, and as a result have given me an opportunity to live in a free country, to do what I want to do, to coach the United States team, the Duke team, whatever,” he said. “So on behalf of the ordinary people, we love you and thank you for doing that.”
We couldn’t agree more with Coach K’s fundamental military advice for Obama. Sure, college basketball isn’t exactly war, but the coach makes a solid, understandable point.
