One in every three U.S. military
commanders was fired because
of sexual misconduct

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

At least 30 per cent of military commanders fired over the past eight years lost their jobs because of sexually related offenses, including harassment, adultery, and improper relationships. The figures follow growing concerns by Defense Department and military leaders over declining ethical values among U.S. forces. They also highlight the pervasiveness of a problem that came into sharp relief because of the resignation of one of the Army´s most esteemed generals, David Petraeus, and the investigation of a second general, John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan. The statistics from all four military services show that adulterous

It´s not a matter of increasing ethics training, it´s the fact that ex-Commander-in-Chief Clinton laid the strongest foundation to support immoral behavior. Society itself has, generally, become more immoral and you can pile on that foundation a current CIC and wife who choose Beyonce and Gaga to celebrate his 2nd inauguration. There´s a lot more but that makes a solid start for responders to build on.

...and, of course, women in the service don´t get the cushier jobs and high periodic reviews from spit shining their shores, either.

I bet the %s of overall sexual misconduct hasn´t changed much at all. It is just not being hidden anymore and is being prosecuted.

Beyonce is a problem? Couldn´t get much more mainstream entertainment in 2013 than Beyonce. I seem to remember when Nancy Reagan was criticized for having the Beach Boys! The older generation always hates change and just wants to go back to the days of Guy Lombardo; not going to happen.

It used to be that I had no problem trusting any of my fellow officers with my wife or my daughter. But as the years rolled on, and in the decade past the millennium, I stopped bringing my wife and children to military functions. Something serious had changed, and it wasn´t for the good.

The O5/O6 and O7´s I served with, I would have trusted my life and honor to; I wouldn´t do that today. Somewhere, the trust was lost and us older guys inherited commanders that were sub-standard.

At least compared to the officers I served with in the 80s and 90s.

General Eisenhower would have been fired during WW2 by these standards. I am sure that there are MANY more that were not known.

Not a fan of adultery, but in many cases it is entirely unrelated to job performance. The ability to lead men in combat and fight wars effectively is rare enough that job performance should be the only measure. Many of our best generals have had their peculiarities, but still won battles. War fighters should ONLY be judge on war fighting, IMO.

From what I have read, the Gen Allen allegations are total BS, reportedly e-mails between his wife and women that he was CC´d on.

Probably a large political componend in this. Tailhook "scandal" destroyed a generation of the finest Navy fighter pilots and leaders we had over essentially nothing.

I´m unaware of any facts to demonstrate that Eisenhower was diddling his secretary, beyond a made for tv movie that showed that activity.
Ike led a circumspect life, if that is the proper word for it, and he and Mamie were married for life.

It was no secret at all about Ike and his British driver. Being married for life to Mamie had nothing to do with it. Long before the tv movie it was known and not a secret.

The decline in the integrity of our Military Officers began in the early 70s with the widespread application of affirmative action to the Armed Forces. No longer did merit and hard work lead to the most qualified being promoted. Promotion criteria included race and gender in addition to performance. If you didn´t agree with the new political correctness, your career suffered greatly. Look at all the politically correct Admirals and Generals we have running the military now. Colin Powell is an example of affirmative action run amok. He was never a warrior, and he progressed to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs because he is black. No other reason. Same reason we have a black President. Affirmative action run amok. So why are we surprised when the whole mititary begins to unravel right along with the decay of the greater society.

Perhaps this wouldn´t be an issue if women weren´t on the front lines.

No offense but women don´t belong there. As a woman I feel comfortable saying that despite the fact I may be labeled a sexist.

A pregnant journalist is recovering in hospital today after a pro-Kremlin political leader in Russia told two male aides to ´violently rape´ her at a press conference. Nationalist Vladimir Zhironovsky launched his extraordinary tirade after reporter Stella Dubovitskaya asked him an innocuous question about sanctions against Ukraine. The founder of the far right Liberal Democratic Party began shouting wildly, before suddenly manhandling two young male aides towards the pregnant mother-of-one. He then shouted to them: ´When I say, you run to her and violently rape her.´ The parliamentary reporter, who is six months pregnant, is now being treated in hospital

A huge fire in Gibraltar, caused by a fuel tank explosion, shut down many online betting services and disrupted gamblers during a busy day of sport. Residences near the blaze were evactuated following the fire, which broke out at around 1pm local time. The explosion occurred at Gibraltar´s main power station and the fire shut down much of the area´s electricity. Thousands of residents and tourists were left without power while firefighters battled the blaze. The fire was eventually brought under control at around 4.30pm local time. A Gibraltar Government spokesman said: "The fire is under control and there are no casualties

Immortalised in Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem about the “valley of death”, the Charge of the Light Brigade is remembered as one of the most glorious defeats in British history. The documents overturn much of the established wisdom of the battle and provide clues as to how the calamitous attack, during the Battle of Balaclava, in the Crimean War, came to be accidentally launched. [Snip] The charge saw the light cavalry mount an assault into a valley flanked, on three sides, by Russians. Lord Raglan, overall commander of the British forces, had intended to send the Light Brigade to pursue and

What stops the Earth from looking like Pluto is energy from the Sun. The quantity and type of energy coming from the Sun varies over cycles that range up to 1,500 years long. The cycle we can see with our own eyes, in our own lifetimes, is the sunspot cycle that is normally eleven years long. [Snip] It has become established—for those who are willing to look at the evidence—that climate will very closely follow our colder Sun. Climate is no longer a mystery to us. We can predict forward up to two solar cycles, that is about twenty-two years into the future. When models of solar activity are further refined, we may be able to predict climate

Of all the many absurdities of the great climate change non-crisis which has been pointlessly obsessing our planet this last three or four decades, surely the most egregious is this: global warming is good. No really, it is. As a few bold heretics--such as Australian geologist Ian Plimer in his book Heaven And Earth--have long been trying to tell anyone prepared to listen, the human species is designed for warmth not cold. Ice ages are something we should naturally fear; warming periods are something which for which we should yearn. All the historical evidence confirms this--that periods of warming

With her twinkling eyes and beaming smile, it is hard to believe Her Majesty will mark her 88th birthday tomorrow. This portrait of the Queen, taken by celebrated British photographer David Bailey CBE, was released today ahead of the occasion. It shows the monarch smiling at the camera - while donning a pearl necklace, earrings and a brooch. Her jewellery is accompanied by a simple dress by Angela Kelly, who has served as the Queen´s personal assistant and senior dresser since 2002. The black-and-white photograph was taken at Buckingham Palace in March and commissioned on behalf of the Government´s GREAT

At least six Birmingham schools accused of harbouring a Trojan horse plot run by Muslim fundamentalists will be placed under special measures by Ofsted. The action is understandable. The unsubtle attempts to insert Islamist ideas--representing an extremist, politicised form of Islam--into the curriculum of those schools makes for frightening reading. Equally unsettling was the liberal establishment’s failure to correct it. According to a special report by the Education Funding Agency, radical Muslims have tried to take control of teaching by first taking control of school governorships. Excellent head teachers were either reduced to the status of figureheads or forced out

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
