Why would you think that?

If you prick me, do I not bleed, asked the Air Force major general.

This story is incomplete. This guy is suspected of counterfeiting casino chips at an Iowa Riverboat casino not "gambling"!

Playing cards or dominoes seem to be the main recreation on navy ships, so no big surprise here.

Maybe they should encourage book-learnin', or taking their fat swabbie asses to the gym....

Thats a huge security risk.

Way to bury the story guys.  A military man gambling isn't a problem.  One who cheats.  That's a problem.

Round and round the fallout blows!
Are there survivors? No one knows!

All right, place your bets, everyone, place your bets! Just remember casino policy: we take no responsibility for radiation poisoning, mass genocide, planetary extinction, or zombie apocalypse, and the only way to win is not to play.

I would think that the people in charge of writing and vetting headlines would understand the English language. I'd be wrong there too.

2nd in command.  It's a Navy guy.

And you know about the Navy and gambling, don't you?

You'd think people whose religion holds nuclear war to be a good thing heralding the return of their man-god would never be allowed in a position to order a nuclear war but you'd be wrong. Welcome to the Real World; it's crazy here.

So? They found out about it and cut his clearance. They're military dudes. Not robots. Now if he enjoyed looking at the pornographys on the intertubes he might just send us all to a fiery grave.

pornographys = satan
satan iz bad

People with gambling debts may be vulnerable to corruption.  It's a security liability indeed.  Many police departments will not promote you to sensitive posts if you are found to be a problem gambler.
 
2013-09-29 12:16:05 PM
Was he a successful gambler (not having to cheat, or losing his everything)?....

Came here to point this out; secret clearance (especially when you figure the guy carrying launch codes) requires a pretty through check of your financial background and habits.

If he was counterfeiting on top of that, then he will probably end up out on his ass as a result.

This was big plot point in the Americans. Keri Russell "seduces" a bookie w/ brutal violence to "sell" him a degenerate gambler who happens to work on the SSID project.

The problem is that our bloated, brass heavy political/military buttbrotherhood is filled with useless, sociopaths starting at the top and on down.
Way too many "Admirals" and "Generals", all looking out only for themselves and sucking Uncle's Pud.

BTW, have you seen how Air Force Generals travel? Giving them a Lear would be WAY cheaper.

You watch too much TV. In this country, you only need a lobbyist and all those legal issues just go away.
In a target rich environment, high ranking suckers are easy.
Start with Congress and go shopping for your own license to steal.

Compared to what, exactly?
A Congress for sale?
A presidentship to the best spent cheat?
What exactly?

Can you even sweep the floors at Offut without a TS clearance? Dude's going to end up retired. If he's lucky, he'll just get busted down a star or two instead of back to Ensign.

At least he didn't counterfeit a social security number in order to become President.

The guys are a gambling addict. Got it.

Here's the scariest part of all these stories about the colossal farkups in charge of the US nuclear weapons arsenal: can you imagine what kind of colossal farkups must be in charge of the nuclear arsenal in Russia?

Ok is just me or has there been more top level military guys getting fired for oddball reasons lately?

Budget cuts are a biatch when you have a noble job for life.
