Debate Over Silence At The President’s Speech?

Well that’s a handy rhetorical device to use. Take something that has a perfectly logical explanation and then just make up your own.

The troops were clearly ordered to refrain from boisterous cheering. The President wanted a relatively quiet, contemplative forum from which to address the nation. That’s what the soldiers gave him.

There’s no debate here, just soldiers following orders.

And lets not forget that tens of thousands of people (most of them soldiers) who wanted to see the President speak were turned away. That’s not exactly evidence supportive of the idea that the soldiers are unhappy with the President’s leadership.
