Colonels are notorious for trashing their Superiors. If a Colonel does not make General by the later part of their career it means they basically reached their point of incompetence at Colonel. They tend to hate their Superiors because of their failure to advance. It is a slap in the face and they don't like it. That is why we see so many of them on the News Shows acting like experts on everything.
What he says may be true but I mention the above because you have to consider it when judging credibility. Is he telling the truth or is he just another angry Colonel who was judged incompetent to advance to General? The airwaves are full of the later as are the bookshelves full of their rants.
