Report: U.S. Air Force general drank too much, fraternized with foreign women in Moscow
Washington Post ^ | 12/19/13 | Craig Whitlock

Posted on 12/19/2013 7:48:13 PM PST by Nachum

An Air Force general in charge of nuclear weapons repeatedly drank too much and behaved like a boor last summer during an official trip to Moscow, where he insulted his Russian hosts and hung out with two suspicious women he met at a hotel bar, according to an investigative report released Thursday. Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, who was commander of the Air Force´s arsenal of land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles, “acted in a manner that exceeded the limits of accepted standards of good conduct” during a four-day visit to Moscow in July, according to an investigation conducted by the Air Force

So he acted like some of Obozo’s Secret Service “posse”?

Yep, and I believe none of this.

Obama went to bed after being notified Benghazi was under attack. THAT is worthy of impeachment!

Well, possibly. But there are an awful lot of key generals being thrown out by the Obama Mafia.

If he met two women, it was because his Russian hosts introduced him to them, I presume. You don’t travel to a foreign country as an important invited guest and wander around on your own. So, I would speculate that the Russians introduced him to these women, and that he was polite to them in return.

Obviously that’s speculation. But the Liar-in-Chief in the White House has zero credibility on matters like this.

Something smells about all this. You don’t make general acting like this. If he was a demorat queer nothing would have been said.

If he’d fraternized with suspicious men in bars Obama would be pinning a medal on him instead.

It is amazing how many of these generals were suddenly acting as floozies as of 2009.

It is partially understandable, because the Obama administration would drive me to drink as well.

And a very disproportionate number of the purge victims seem to be associated with our nuclear arms. I find that worrisome. Obama's got his eye on the button, and he's removing people who don't share his values.

I wouldn’t worry about it. Obama’s going to do good by shipping all the nuclear arms to Russia so they can be destroyed.

Relax and enjoy your Christmas.

I have had too many drinks on occasion. I fraternized with sweet young things of the opposite sex. As a young man I didn’t reveal any secrets.

Who knew, this could be done? It’s a MIRACLE.

After years of being around the Air Force, I came to realize at some point in the mid-1990s....we were promoting up the line a number of dimwits to one-star and above. These were guys with attitude issues, marginal common sense, and generally lacked executive ability.

I don’t know the trigger to this or why it became so noticeable. With my own statistics....I’d take a stab that a third of all AF officers above Colonel....should be tossed out because of issues. Why they aren’t filtered out or noted for problems when they were in earlier years....I have no idea.

Most Russian women who hang out in hotel bars are government workers, but not in the U.S. sense.

OTOH, the Air Force has had their party instinct browbeaten, bred, lead, lesbianed, and prosecuted out of them. So now when it IS time to drink and be stud, they are clueless as to how it looks. So they do it all wrong insulting everyone.
It all started with the requirement that unit activities had to have a huge amount of food provided, proportionate to beer served.

So now, that instinct dead a few decades, this pussified General can’t do a little negotiations for a couple of Anna Kournakovas without making an ass of himself.
I feel bad for him, he never learned to party with USMC grunts.

Could it be the investigators simply misunderstood when he offered to take the two suspicious women up to his room and show them his missile?

There was a time when fighting men were supposed to be a little rough around the edges. Now we're all expected to be choirboys. It's gotten really bad in the Navy (google 0-0-1-3) and I imagine the Air Force is even worse.

Wait! Are we talking about Bill Clinton or some member of the uniformed armed service?

Well you wouldn’t MAKE general acting like this. But as we saw from Gen. Petraus they sometimes lose sight of the behavior standards. That said, I think this was a setup.

I don't think we know that real story. It happened right around the time of Benghazi, right. The squeeze was on to make sure no information got out.

When being blackmailed, the manly thing to do is come out in the open and admit to wrongdoing. Not every man is able to do that, e.g. John Roberts.

Of course. And I'm sure the General knew it. But that doesn't mean he can afford to be openly rude to them, because the Russkis would play that angle, too.
