Air Force plan to strip generals of authority
« on: May 15, 2014, 08:19:48 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

It makes sense.  Operational commanders report through the Chairman JCS and SecDef to POTUS.  Base commanders report to the respective service chiefs.  And the more that joint operational commands are created the less time and effort the commander has to be involved in post and base operations. 
It's the Supreme Court nominations!

yep...and can devote more time to combat operations.  The Air Force is still very top heavy though....
