Phi Beta Iota: Ralph Peters does not gush very often. Noted and recommended. By and large, America’s so-called flag officers are a global disgrace–battalion commanders in way over the head, with no clue on multinational, joint, operations other than war, acquisition, military education & training, the list is long. The Secretary of Defense and the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence have been especially disappointing, since there is nothing about defense that is “intelligence-driven” and most especially acquisition–hence, as brilliant as this particular flag officer is, and we almost always agree with Ralph Peters’ judgment, he is “lipstick on the pig.” It is still a pig.
