"Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ... declined to share the animal's gender or name for security reasons."

Widely known fact: The bad guys try to ID the more successful dogs for their troops, and pay bounties. Sometimes the only word for Trump is "stoopid".
At least one of his soundbite followers credited the dog with the takedown and kill- notfact.

Who really knows about the dog and what happened?

The reports I read were all over the map. First, I saw that it suffered life threatening injuries. Next, I heard they were relatively minor. I also read that it was electrocuted. So how, for security reasons, would someone keep something quiet. Maybe leaking a lot of false information for the media types to chew up and spit out? But just how important is it that we know every detail? Not much, IMO.

FWIW, Trump said he preferred to be unpredictable. That is something he has been...and has kept the media and rabid political types tearing out their hair. Good or bad (civil) leadership? tell me. We, who have lived through several, have been given the gift of variety. One doesn't know how to compare anything to another without experiencing more than one.

"gift of variety".

Well, that's one take on him. Grin
Reliability, stability also useful.

'Who knows what the story is?'
Reuters- worldwide, professional, well-equipped for the task- might have a respectable level of knowledge.

The word "variety" does not mean Trump

It means the list of civil leaders we've praised to those we've only inured...or endured, if you will. We've been giving quite a number of such gifts and it's the only way we can filter the unpleasant from the pleasant. We have rain, snow and sunshine. We (should) eventually learn that all are important to experience and allow to enter into our lives. Trump will disappear and a new person will take his place. In our country, we (the people) will select that person. How do we know what we like if we haven't had those we dislike? Personally, I think Trump's biggest issue is his very rough personality. I have very little problem with his stated vision for the country. He's pointed out quite well where we've made some turns that led to the paths of failure. When picking a captain to sail your ship through a storm, you may want to choose one that smells of rotting fish to one who smells of French cologne. Happy

notfact: The dog was nowhere near the perp at the end.

Reasoning why not is left as an exercise for the reader.

Answer to the question:

Two-legged soldier or four, I would rather have a CinC with a sense of loyalty and common sense.

Of course, I have.
