It’s good to have a story to write that has a happy ending.
An Army major general who’s now been busted down one star, given a reprimand and forced to retire, proves not all flag officers can get away with utter stupidity, just most of them. GEN Joseph Harrington, former Africa Command boss, has been humiliated and will soon go out the back door without the usual pomp or ceremony. We won’t miss him.
Of all the dumb things to do to end a military career, the sycophantic former two-star (he gushed to one and all how “great” his mentor – retired GEN and Army Chief of Staff Martin Dempsey – is. The idiot general thought he could carry on a “friendly” and “flirty” e-mail relationship that lasted four months with the wife of an enlisted man under his command.
A GENERAL OFFICER’S POOR JUDGEMENT
There’s no telling where it might have led to if the Army frau hadn’t reported Harrington to a powerful front group for the Presidential ambitions of fierce feminist, U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. After that, he was, shall we say, “a dead man walking.”
What did the dummy do to tick the unidentified frau off? We may never know. But it was an expensive lesson to the ex-major general that fooling around – in any way – with women not your wife has a heavy price tag attached.
“I made a big mistake,” Harrington now admits. “Responding to and entering into a private discussion with a soldier’s spouse was the wrong thing to do.” It will cost him big bucks as he retires in disgrace. The perfumed prince still doesn’t get it. Certain politicians are using a “war” between the sexes in our military to do what hateful Hillary wasn’t able to accomplish.
