I urge you to read this New York Times article to the end. The story it tells is squalid almost beyond belief. “Almost” because we know by now that nothing is beneath the soldier-sniffing, draft-dodging little prick in the White House — a specimen so cowardly that he hides behind Twitter to do his firing.
Here we see him hoping to look brave by sucking up to the most sadistic bully boys in his schoolyard. But the only one seen to have any actual balls in this story turns out to be a girl: Rear Admiral Bette Bolivar. Unfortunately her next promotion will have to wait until Elizabeth Warren chases Bone Spurs out of the White House.

Went to school with Babette. She and her contemporary, Adm. Michelle Howard who I also knew, epitomize mediocrity at a time when women were new to the service academies. I'm uncertain a more craven, unqualified and nakedly ambitious crew could be found in the military which makes them hardly worthy of support than the strivers of Navy special warfare who manage to come off in this debacle even more sociopathic than usual.
Craven hardly seems the word for a whistleblower. And I doubt that an ambitious officer in a bureaucracy, especially a military one, would take on its most visible and highly praised unit.
