    The following is an opinion piece written by Brigadier General Jeffrey Sinclair.

    So, now it seems we have questions about a number of high-ranking defense officials and their conduct both on and off the job. The list reads like a resume for a Clinton-era appointee.

    Shady travel vouchers got now-Lieutenant General Kip Ward booted from AFRICOM and a missing star in the bargain. He’ll probably end his career as some project manager, sequestered in a Pentagon sub-basement. Head of Joint LGBT affairs, probably. They say he overcharged $82,000 in travel expenses. Really, what kind of overcharging can you make in Africa? Maybe he got hotel upgrades to rooms with air conditioning. You ever been to Africa? It’s hot as shit, man. I don’t blame him.

    Sinclair reprimanded, fined; case likely to reignite battle over military justice
    March 20, 2014 ~ An Army general who once faced life in prison for sexual misconduct with a subordinate ended up with a fine and a reprimand, a verdict that surprised military justice watchers and left unanswered many questions about the role of command influence in criminal cases.

    Brig. Gen. Sinclair sentence again shows flaws in military justice, critics say
    March 20, 2014 ~ Members of Congress and victim advocacy groups reacted with horror and resignation Thursday to news that Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair will avoid jail time and instead be reprimanded and fined after pleading guilty to adultery, mistreating the female captain with whom he had a three-year relationship, misusing a government credit card to pursue the affair and other charges.

    Well, he got caught screwing a subordinate....which is a crime and he cheated on his wife...which is a crime.

    Nevermind the woman he cheated with said he also raped/sexually assaulted her.....another crime.

    No pity for that SOB.

    It seems to me that not all that long ago, we were told that was not a crime, and nobodies business but their own.

    And not only that, I also remember people screaming that the military was in the wrong when they court-martialed Lieutenant Kelly Flinn for adultery.

    So which should it be? Because you can't have it both ways. Either adultery is a crime and should be prosecuted (which actually only happens in the military), or it is the business of nobody but the individuals involved.

    You can't have it both ways.
