Read the excerpt from the press release again..he served WITH the SEALs as an intelligence officer. Readily admits that he never went outside the wire or faced any physical danger. Also worth noting that he received a direct commission, so Lippert never had to earn it the old-fashioned way, through Annapolis, ROTC, or OCS.

Direct commissions into the intel ranks has long been a favored way for policy wonks and politicians who want to fill the “military service” square on their resumes. Sen Mark Kirk (R-IL) is another Washington insider who joined the Naval Reserve via the direct commission route. There are plenty of applicants with qualifications similar to—or better than those—of Mr. Lippert. But he moves to the front of the line for commissioning, thanks to his political connections.

Lippert is unqualified to be Chief of Staff at DoD. But so is his boss, and their commander-in-chief.
