Best Quote of the Week – November 30, 2019

“This was a shocking and unprecedented intervention in a low-level review.  It was also a reminder that the president has very little understanding of what it means to be in the military, to fight ethically or to be governed by a uniform set of rules and practices.”

– Richard Spencer, former Secretary of the U.S. Navy, regarding President Donald Trump’s decision to intervene in a case involving a Navy SEAL accused of a war crime.

The case involves Navy Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher who posed with the corpse of a dead teenaged Islamic State extremist in Iraq.  “His values are not those of our military,” Spencer added.
