The Generals have protocol and requirements of their job to let them know their
bounds of duty and when it is out of bounds. Both General's know what
those standards are. They were susceptible to all kinds of scrutiny from
foreign and inside agencies for their pass out of bounds. These Generals know
of the potential repercussions and not from mortars or artillery shells. They
have been briefed and receive training on these issues and do officer and
enlisted reports for their subordinates on these types of topics and affairs due
to national security. Whether it gets to that level of national security
depends on the situation. However, the potential for national security issues
is always there, no matter how small the invasion into that area of
operations.These Generals found out there is no such thing as a
small sin. They had infractions and our country will pay those for them but our
prestige and power has been impacted, not just their careers and especially
families. Time for broken swords?
I guess we all forgot about the interview the General gave Rolling Stone
Magazine. Sounds like this is payback. Every corrupt deed needs a fall guy.
Petraus is now getting his for not giving a favorable interveiw way back when.
Don't you just love Washington?
