Slay the course

"Well, I've been talking about a change in tactics ever since I - ever since we went in, because the role of the commander in chief is to say to our generals, `You adjust to the enemy on the battlefield.'" - the Busher.

He thinks his role is to say to our generals "You adjust to the enemy on the battlefield."?

Are we to understand that we have generals who don't know that unless he tells them?

"Sir, that enemy we are trying to engage just veered to the East! Should we veer to the East, too?"

"No, keeping going straight. That way, we'll miss him entirely."

The job of the Commander-in-Chief is to tell the general to adjust to the enemy on the battlefield?

What is he? Commander-in-Chief of the painfully obvious?
