When a one-star general (in charge of logistics) has a pet name for his female captains (like Panda), it is not a good sign. Truly, the facts in the possible court-martial of Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair are all harrowing.
Two quotes stand out to me. His aide, Panda, saying: In a (expletive)-up way I still love him, she admitted. I don’t want him to be mad at me.
And then Alexander the Great with this: My logisticians are a humorless lot … they know if my campaign fails, they are the first ones I will slay.
The bottom-line: Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair faces possible courts-martial on charges that include forced sex, pornography, violating an order, alcohol use, engaging in inappropriate relationships, misusing a government travel charge card, and conduct unbecoming an officer.
Yes, this man vastly outranks me. But, if found guilty, I say drum him out of the United States military with nothing. No rank and send him to Leavenworth. No retirement. Nothing. We have had a stream of dishonorable officers recently and we need to make the pain more painful. One thing everyone understands: loss of money, loss of prestige. It is better to be an honorable private than a dishonorable general.
For more details on the particulars: Female officers sent nude photos to general. The pictures were not even of the female in question. She just chopped the heads off random naked shots. After the general begged for ’em. A general. . .
