I’d say the top flag officers are doing a pretty effective job of scandalizing themselves.
I agree. Nobody forced them to have these affairs or lie about Benghazi. Whatever happened to honor?
Retired admiral James Lyons has been on TV talking about the failure of this administration at Benghazi. He is still asking why nothing was done to help those people - including buzzing the crowd with jet flyovers to disperse them and buy time. He said that the military command has been politicized since the passage of Goldwater-Nichols when Reagan was president. We don’t have the same caliber of leaders in the military that we once had.
Three and Four star promotions are by the President. Do you really expect the people appointed by the current occupier of the white house to be honorable? He can use and abuse them at will.
