  1. “....The King said that the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter, and that this person in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the Saudi people who love the American people.“ And his “thoughts and prayers.”
  2. That convening authority should've been fired for that.
  3. Gallagher's brother wrote a pretty scathing opinion piece. https://www.navytimes.com/opinion/2019/11/27/op-ed-navy-corruption-and-the-gallagher-case/
  4. Then fact you can be found guilty by 3/4rds majority (was 2/3rds until a year ago) and can have down to eight members on a panel (where it used to be five) by people who outrank you, not a "jury of your peers" is insane. The non-unanimous requirement to convict is the military justice system to get around hung juries (sts). But the Gallagher case is a good example at why the military justice system isn't proficient at handling high profile trials. I wonder if Gallagher would've even went to trial if the DOJ had tried the case? I'm sorta of surprised the amount of active duty, and former, military members who don't understand that those appointed and uniformed in the DoD, follow the orders of the CINC. The CINC doesn't follow the orders from those appointed in uniformed in the DoD. I wouldn't be surprised to see RADM Green submit to retire soon as well.
  5. I thought it was interesting that a statement from someone on her staff said that she'd say "this is the first I've heard of it" and claim ignorance...which is the exact thing she did when to the IO asked her questions about some her TDY's and expenses and confronted with evidence contrary to what she claimed.
  6. This happened to me with a FTU student I diverted with. Officers receive GTC’s at USAFA, UPT, etc. Enlisted don’t received one until they’re at their first permanent duty station. I diverted with a student Boom, A1C, who had no GTC. He also had no personal credit card since he was 18 years old. I had to put his lodging and M&I on mine, then work with the OG RA/CTO to get reimbursed. It was a pain, but worked out.
  7. After reading it, it made sense that her former Vice reporter her to the IG. The same person who she gave an LOC to two weeks after taking over as Comm.
  8. Here’s her ROI. https://drive.google.com/file/d/124mxCFQTc-7m1lW7kT_egdNnf_vpq-4v/view
  9. Part of TAMI was to convert some rated staff jobs into enlisted billets. There are plenty of Career Enlisted Aviators hidings out in staff because they suck at flying, etc.
