Sense of entitlement behind military ethics scandals?

In total, five US Generals total have now been sacked, on top of the 14 US Navy Commanders who have already been done away with. It’s quite clear that this has nothing to do with the “scandals” that this article uses to whitewash the events. There may have in fact been real scandals invovled, but fact is: If Bill Clinton didn’t get sacked from the White House and other scores of politicans or military personnel have done the same thing and gotten away with it, it tells another story. What’s clear is that this the United States Military being toppled in a coup. Anyone that stands in the way of the current administration is being done away with. The history of the USSR and Germany are repeating itself in the USA with a fifth column, yet most Americans are preoccupied watching Monday Night Football or keeping up with the Kardashians.

Three of the military’s most senior leaders are embroiled in ethics scandals, a black eye for an institution that prides itself on integrity.

The latest, Marine Gen. John Allen, the top commander in Afghanistan, is under investigation for more than 20,000 pages of material including e-mails sent to Jill Kelley, the woman involved in the scandal that forced David Petraeus to resign as CIA director. Allen succeeded Petraeus in Kabul.

Allen is one of the military’s star officers. He gained prominence in Iraq in 2007 as a deputy commander in what was then the restive province of Anbar. Marines there helped tame the insurgency. It was Allen, too, whose disclosures to USA TODAY about the success of Mine Resistant Ambush Protected trucks in protecting troops from roadside bombs that caught the attention of Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who made them the Pentagon’s top priority.

Allen quickly ascended the upper ranks of the military and beginning in 2008 spent three years based in Tampa as deputy commander of Central Command. Tampa is also Kelley’s home, where she acted as an unpaid social liaison to the military.
