Blast from the past. General Vaught saw the SEAL controversy coming...

The quote?
“Now I’m going to tell you, one of these days, if you keep publishing how you do this, the other guy’s going to be there ready for you, and you’re going to fly in and he’s going to shoot down every damn helicopter and kill every one of your SEALs. Now, watch it happen. Mark my words. Get the hell out of the media.."
LT GEN James Vaught
What kills me about this?

A couple of things.  First the way that the media laughed at the General.  Age confers wisdom, his service (exemplary no matter how you define it) DEMANDS respect..  He said nothing funny, was correct in his assessment and those bastards had the gall to laugh at him?  Each and every one of them needs to be throat punched.

Second.  McRaven started this.  He encouraged the spirit of SEALs covering the morning pages.  HE LED BY EXAMPLE!  Yet no one is saying it.

This is a culture problem and until they face it, correct and remove anyone that has engaged in it (meaning people that disclose secrets are punished to the fullest extent of the law) then we'll see this issue continue.
