Youre neighbors below the border have known about this for a while, intrepid. And it doesnt really scream out much to be noticed. With Abu Gharib
going on, were focusing on a bigger embarrassment.
But, the rest of the country aside, Im surprised, really, that this major is getting off so light. He violated so many major codes of cinduct, Im
surprised they aint gonna strip him and discharge him.
1. he was on illegal drugs. That alone tells me the forces have really gotten weak on enforcing thier drug policies. Fighter pilots underwent even
stricter anti drug regs, the fact nothing is done about it is, to say the least, a distubing peek into the current state of diclipline in the forces.
2. he disobeyed a direct order not to bomb. he disobeyed an order and dropped a bunch of bombs when specifically told not too. and the results
certainly were anything but justified.
3. He knowingly attacked friendly forces. His disobeying orders not to bomb them. He knew they were good guys. In effect, he attacked his mown forces.
This tells me the guy is wrong in the head. persons not mentally stable, in the good old days, were taken off flight status before they even land the
And this guy is only getting a slap on the wrist? jesus Christ, I knew guys in the army sent to leavenworth for ALOT less.
my only conclusion can be that this guy is REALLY connected. the fact at the minimum he isnt losing his job is pretty damn disturbing.
Yet anopther reminder of why I left the forces: the lack of discipline, order, and proper justic, rewards and punishments being meted out, led to
lowered moral, performance, and quality fo the soldiers. Thank you much, Mr Clinton.
This Air Force pilot, who we would have considered an embarrassment and a joke back when i was in, will get a piecve of paper saying naughty bot.
