miss diminutive: I'm just surprised that so many agencies and military branches sound like they're being staffed by complete imbeciles.
miss diminutive: That whole thing was like reading a bad Tom Clancy novel.I'm just surprised that so many agencies and military branches sound like they're being staffed by complete imbeciles.
One Bad Apple: How does freedom of navigation in international waters start a war ?
Hobodeluxe: I'll bet Cheney and his PNAC directed Fallon to covertly pull this off if he could. They couldn't have anyone outside their inner circle in on it but Id bet dollars to donuts Cheney and Rummy knew.
NutWrench: Hobodeluxe: I'll bet Cheney and his PNAC directed Fallon to covertly pull this off if he could. They couldn't have anyone outside their inner circle in on it but Id bet dollars to donuts Cheney and Rummy knew.I can totally see Cheney and Rumsfeld starting a war with Iran and then trying to spin Obama as the crazy, warmongering bastard who started it.
DrPainMD: After WW2, we executed people for crap like this. What happened to our nads and our sense of right and wrong?
Gyrfalcon: Whistleblowing isn't good for your career plans.
Dr.Zom: I thought it was the Air Force that was full of crazy Christian end-timers?
douchebag/hater: I just 'love' how the article devolves into her life story of being a model in Georgetown and being 'tall, brash and sexy' and able to 'stand up to men'.Her credibility ended right there.
DrPainMD: After WW2, we executed people for crap like this.
T-Servo: Gyrfalcon: Whistleblowing isn't good for your career plans.Neither is accepting money from Sudanese-paid lobbyists with whom you've had an affair. CIs don't see that as cool.
MeinRS6: The Navy has more to risk than any branch of the service in a war with Iran - at least in the opening day while they are in range of all of Iran's anti-ship missiles.I can see this woman getting upset with her bosses' policies. I can see her not liking them. I can see her strongly disagreeing with them and wishing that her bosses would change their minds. That is all very believable.Can I see some admirals trying to instigate a war with Iran at that time? Not so much. The article seems to overlay her opinion of what could happen and used that opinion to describe the intentions of people that did not comment on this story - other than to say "That's BS".
BronyMedic: DrPainMD: After WW2, we executed people for crap like this. What happened to our nads and our sense of right and wrong?We did? Who?We executed a whole lot of GIs for Rape and Murder (most of them black, while the whites got lengthy prison terms), and one poor unlucky sod for Desertion, but I don't remember that happening.We did ruin the career of a Five Star general because he wanted to nuke the Chinese in Northern Korea, though.
Overfiend: I am not saying this isn't possible, but as another Farker pointed out, you don't exactly sneak aircraft carriers around.
BarkingUnicorn: FTA: the Navy's Inspector General Hotline, which responded that it "will neither confirm, nor deny, receipt of your Hotline complaint via email of 28 Feb 2008."How Orwellian... or Monty Pythian (Pythonian?)
