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

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 affairs are more than a four-star foible.

From sexual assault and harassment to pornography, drugs and drinking, ethical lapses are an escalating problem for the military's leaders.

With all those offenses taken together, more than 4 in every 10 commanders at the rank of lieutenant colonel or above who were fired fell as a result of behavioral stumbles since 2005.

The latest to take such a fall from grace is Brigadier General Jeffrey Sinclair, fired from his command in Afghanistan last May and now facing a court-martial on charges of sodomy, adultery and pornography and more, is just one in a long line of commanders whose careers were ended because of possible sexual misconduct.

Thank goodness they're holding homosexual "weddings" on the USMA campus. All is well.

Hitler began purging the German military by ousting these kinds of people, even by setting some of them up, as I believe they did with Patraeus. Some charges were totally bogus, but Hitler succeeded and 'owned' his military.

You got it. Some pigs are just more equal than others.
(or they think they are).

BTW- It was a Republican Senate that let him walk.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.
