It’s that “resigning quietly” part that is counter to the oath that we both took and leaves me with the sour taste. Clintoon’s orders/pressures were out of line if not flat out illegal. Faced with an illegal order Fogleman had an obligation to fight it. Resigning is dodging the fight and does nothing “for the good of the service”. If anything it leaves his service in a diminished position. If you had taken the same oath you might understand it and it would be instructive to hear Fogleman’s defense. I’d also like to hear just one of these 500 explain why they took so long to join the fight.?
I’ll take your oh-so-informed words for what they are worth.
Thanks for playing.
