I bet a whole bunch of generals and admirals are deleting emails, breaking up with girlfriends and wondering if they have any dumpsters nearby that will hold a rolled carpet.

Leon panetta needs to wheel out a head on a pike.

If you had bothered to read the article. Panetta's military flights at the time the article was published had already cost over $800,000 dollars. Panetta is flying UNSCHEDULED military flights to California every week.His flights cost more than first class commercial flights.

He is doing the same /b> thing this general got busted for and has vowed to keep doing it.

Panetta is required to fly in military aircraft by government regulation. He is barred from commercial travel due to his position. Since the trip is unofficial travel he must reimburse the government the cost of a commercial ticket. Which he does. See DoD Directive 4500.56, "DoD Policy on the Use of Government Aircraft and Air Travel," April 14, 2009

Congress has the power to change it but I think it is a bad idea. An office like that requires the secretary to be immediately reached by the president and vice versa. If we are attacked how will the public respond to, "well, I was in coach and couldn't use my cell phone."

There is more to this than dolla dolla bills, yo.

So they still offer disgraced Generals a side arm, a single bullet and a suggestion to 'do the honorable thing'?

Ward will retire at the lower rank, and consequently a lower pay grade.

Reminds me of when Admiral Poindexter wanted to retire at his temporary higher rank. He just needed the routine formality of Senate confirmation of his promotion.

Meh, he'll just go work for Raytheon and get another Denzel autograph there.
