    APNewsBreak: Records show Greene's military flops - Yahoo! News

    From Alvin Greenes Military Record

    In a performance report two years later, Greene received adequate marks for performing tasks assigned to him, complying with standards and training requirements. But Greene's reviewer marked him as an ineffective leader who lacked organization and was "unable to express thoughts clearly."

    Greene is "usually capable of handling mundane tasks with supervision" but is "not able to adapt to any changes to daily routine," the reviewer wrote, also noting that Greene had received multiple disciplinary actions for failing to perform his duties.

    Greene was also written up for posting sensitive information on a military Internet server, a mistake that resulted in a three-day work stoppage. Records showed Greene was kept at Shaw while the rest of his unit deployed after leadership "recognized his inability to contribute to the wartime mission."


    A year later, Greene was evaluated again, this time in his new job as an analyst working with the weapons of mass destruction section. But Greene's job had little to do with intelligence analysis and more to do with shredding documents and escorting contractors around the base.

    Again receiving low marks for ineffective leadership, Greene also was rated as not knowing much about his duties or performing them effectively and not complying with minimum training requirements.

    The reviewer also wrote Greene "required a daily to-do list" to perform basic duties and had a "consistent inability to follow instructions or maintain basic job knowledge." Most seriously, the reviewer wrote that Greene would represent "a threat to others" because of his inability to grasp the basics of military training.


    This thing gets stranger and stranger....how could he win a primary he didn't campaign in by a landslide?

    Well obviously the mind tricks of the Republican Jedi masters fooled people. That and lots of republicans stuffing ballot boxes?

    Or are you not one of those claiming with out a shred of evidence that he was a Republican plant?

    By the way, Sometimes one gets back evals not because you are incompetent, but rather because the leadership does not like you. Though in this case sounds like he WAS incompetent because he got similar marks from two different sets of leaders.

    But when compared to the incompetent buffoons of the Liberals, he would fit right in.

    I wouldn't.

    My concern is how someone obtained his military file.

    Maybe they read his name and just assumed he was Al Green the soul singer.

    It seems odd how this guy could have won. He sounds like he may be mildly retarded.

    I don't see how the GOP could have swung the vote for this guy, there would be some evidence of mailings or an internet campaign to go out and vote for this guy. To stuff the ballot box would have meant you did it in every precinct.

    The guy was totally unknown and there was no evidence of a groundswell of support for him. Somehow, the Democrats of South Carolina voted for him. Though it doesn't seem anyone admits it.

    If this thing turns out to be fraud it will turn SC on its ear
