“And those headlines can impact the mission that we’re engaged in,” the secretary said. “They can put your fellow service members at risk. They can hurt morale. They can damage our standing in the world, and they can cost lives.”~Secretary Leon Panetta

    Are we sure this wasn’t a KBR management party?

  2. Comment by DoD IG WATCH:

    While they’re receiving these pensions – that dramatically exceed those of the troops they once commanded – many generals and admirals are also cashing in by working for defense contractors. In fact, a new report from the Center for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) found “70 percent of the 108 three-and-four star generals and admirals who retired between 2009 and 2011 took jobs with defense contractors or consultants.

    This being said is causing the other co-conspiritor of DoD Contractors who should be having their Qui Tam investigations performed by unbiased investigators are perverting the course of justice because of their influence. Those same generals have connection to Senators and Congressmen and women and due to that sway, the U.S. Tax Payer, who is already paying a price for that General is once again paying for his influence to steer the investigation. Look at Agility. HAS anyone forgot about Agility and that Qui Tam suit. Either the DOJ is as incompetent as they appear, or the Courts are being paid to stall out justice.

    NO GENERAL should be associated with a DOD contractor. Congress is only keeping the systemic problem going by not making sure during confirmation of Generals that they have a life-time ban on dealing with the DoD Contractors that they once commanded. Commanded because Congress down-sized the military to a point of depending on DoD contractors.

    This is a tough pill to swallow Congress – but ethics is not exactly your strong suit is it ? Try to stop taking DoD gift money and be an example. Obama is as much taking the DoD Contractor’s money as is Eric Holder.
