I just read the article. It is typical of the American government overall.
Use the military as political tools, then discard them when not needed.
I knew of a former secret service agent for the Clintons that told his sister, who told me, that the Clintons treated the military like dirt. To
illustrate their attitude toward the military. Once when Chelsea was a child and her secret service agent for some reason could not take her to
school at the last minute, a soldier was tasked to ride in the car with her. Apparently, she threw a hissy fit saying she did not want to be in a car
with "one of them", it was so bad they had to dig up another agent to take her. A child gets attitudes like that from their parents and those within
It may have also happened with Republican presidents and families, but I know it happened with this very influential Democrat family - and I have no
doubt it continues with Obama because of many of his actions/inactions regarding service men and women
These attitudes get spread throughout the government and do filter into agencies who are supposed to view the military past and present as
customers, but instead, they view them as an inconvenience at best while delivering less than stellar customer service. So the attitudes become
ingrained in the culture of the agency and so the members of the agency become blind to their own disrespectful attitudes and actions.
Just as with the IRS, the NSA, the TSA, as long as the party in power chooses to either ignore the problems, hide the problems, illegally hide the
problems, refuse to prosecute those who behave illegally, it will continue and it will continue to worsen.
Until the majority who hold power see the problems and start to act to fix the problems they will continue to happen. All we can do is point them
out as publicly as possible, until the people in power are shammed into fixing it or are worried if they don't they'll lose power.
