JFK Reloaded

Saying "We believe that the only thing we're exploiting is new technology," Kennedy assassination re-created in video game is a story about JFK Reloaded. This game looks to recreate the JFK assassination (41 years ago today), describing it as a way of proving or disproving conspiracy theories about the shooting, offering a cash prize for a player that can recreate the shots attributed to Lee Harvey Oswald.

130. Re: Pres is military Nov 23, 2004, 09:52 Tigger
 
I think people are forgetting that the President dresses like a civilian, but the bulk of his activities are something that a military commander does. The guy should be wearing a full military uniform, if he wanted to be honest.

No. The President is not a military officer; he is the civilian leader of our government. Presidents USE the military (similar to the way one would use a tool) to carry out or enforce United States foreign policy.

I am curious: What constitutes a 'bulk' of the Presidents duties that are something a military commander does?
