One in every three U.S. military
commanders was fired because
of sexual misconduct

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/20/2013 3:18:15 PM

At least 30 per cent of military commanders fired over the past eight years lost their jobs because of sexually related offenses, including harassment, adultery, and improper relationships. The figures follow growing concerns by Defense Department and military leaders over declining ethical values among U.S. forces. They also highlight the pervasiveness of a problem that came into sharp relief because of the resignation of one of the Army´s most esteemed generals, David Petraeus, and the investigation of a second general, John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan. The statistics from all four military services show that adulterous

It´s not a matter of increasing ethics training, it´s the fact that ex-Commander-in-Chief Clinton laid the strongest foundation to support immoral behavior. Society itself has, generally, become more immoral and you can pile on that foundation a current CIC and wife who choose Beyonce and Gaga to celebrate his 2nd inauguration. There´s a lot more but that makes a solid start for responders to build on.

I bet the %s of overall sexual misconduct hasn´t changed much at all. It is just not being hidden anymore and is being prosecuted.

Beyonce is a problem? Couldn´t get much more mainstream entertainment in 2013 than Beyonce. I seem to remember when Nancy Reagan was criticized for having the Beach Boys! The older generation always hates change and just wants to go back to the days of Guy Lombardo; not going to happen.

It used to be that I had no problem trusting any of my fellow officers with my wife or my daughter. But as the years rolled on, and in the decade past the millennium, I stopped bringing my wife and children to military functions. Something serious had changed, and it wasn´t for the good.

The O5/O6 and O7´s I served with, I would have trusted my life and honor to; I wouldn´t do that today. Somewhere, the trust was lost and us older guys inherited commanders that were sub-standard.

At least compared to the officers I served with in the 80s and 90s.

General Eisenhower would have been fired during WW2 by these standards. I am sure that there are MANY more that were not known.

Not a fan of adultery, but in many cases it is entirely unrelated to job performance. The ability to lead men in combat and fight wars effectively is rare enough that job performance should be the only measure. Many of our best generals have had their peculiarities, but still won battles. War fighters should ONLY be judge on war fighting, IMO.

From what I have read, the Gen Allen allegations are total BS, reportedly e-mails between his wife and women that he was CC´d on.

Probably a large political componend in this. Tailhook "scandal" destroyed a generation of the finest Navy fighter pilots and leaders we had over essentially nothing.

I´m unaware of any facts to demonstrate that Eisenhower was diddling his secretary, beyond a made for tv movie that showed that activity.
Ike led a circumspect life, if that is the proper word for it, and he and Mamie were married for life.

The decline in the integrity of our Military Officers began in the early 70s with the widespread application of affirmative action to the Armed Forces. No longer did merit and hard work lead to the most qualified being promoted. Promotion criteria included race and gender in addition to performance. If you didn´t agree with the new political correctness, your career suffered greatly. Look at all the politically correct Admirals and Generals we have running the military now. Colin Powell is an example of affirmative action run amok. He was never a warrior, and he progressed to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs because he is black. No other reason. Same reason we have a black President. Affirmative action run amok. So why are we surprised when the whole mititary begins to unravel right along with the decay of the greater society.

US Secretary of State John Kerry will make his fourth trip to North and Southeast Asia on Thursday, stopping in China, South Korea and Indonesia for climate change and North Korea talks. The top US diplomat will also visit Abu Dhabi at the end of his February 13-18 voyage, his spokesman Jen Psaki said in a statement. In Seoul, Mr Kerry will "discuss ways to expand our cooperation on regional and global issues, and continue our close coordination... on North Korea," Ms Psaki said.

The federal government pays for a $15 million ´wool trust fund,´ runs a $170 million program to protect catfish growers from overseas competition, sets aside $3 million to promote Christmas trees, funds another $2 million to help farmers sell more sheep, and plunks down $100 million researching how to get Americans to buy more maple syrup.

The White House doesn´t like it, and neither does a prominent Senate Republican, but Olympic athletes who win medals in Sochi will have to pay federal income taxes on their cash bonuses. The U.S. Olympic Committee awards $25,000 for each gold medal, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze.

The Canadian government has proposed sweeping changes to its rules on citizenship.

Applicants would also have to pass a knowledge test and have proficiency in English or French. Immigration Minister Chris Alexander said citizenship should not be simply a "passport of convenience". [Snip] Other proposals for new applicants include having to wait six years to apply for Canadian citizenship instead of the current four.

The earliest footprints left by humans outside Africa have been found in estuary mud in Norfolk. Described as the most important discovery on British shores, the 800,000-year-old footprints were found in Happisburgh after being exposed by sea tides. Scientists believe the footprints are evidence of the earliest known humans in northern Europe, previously only revealed through the discovery of animal bones and stone tools. The footprint surface was exposed at low tide as heavy seas removed the beach sands to reveal a series of elongated hollows cut into compacted silts. Of the 50 footprints found, only around twelve were reasonably

Cash-strapped counties in six states are enrolling inmates in Obamacare health insurance plans as a way to shift costs to the federal government--a tactic that´s legal but frustrating for some Republicans who don´t want to see the success levels of President Obama´s signature law inflated artificially. In many cases jails are registering inmates so they´ll be better equipped to access addiction counseling and psychiatric care after their release, lowering the likelihood that they´ll return for more time behind bars. The Affordable Care Act prohibits the enrollment of full-time prisoners serving sentences, but many prisoners awaiting trial in prison jumpsuits are

The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual.

However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed.

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the

The emergence of Twitter as a social media goliath has unleashed gossip and speculation as a media force. The long term consequences are unknowable, but in the meantime, with a far left president with a dicey past, it is producing some highly amusing results. Last night, President Obama explained to Bob Costas of NBC Sports why he wasn´t attending the Sochi Olympics, but the substance of what he had to say was lost in the controversy that erupted on Twitter over whether or not he was stoned. Yahoo writer Mike Oz took the high road, as would nearly any journalist, and described the president as looking "sleepy."
