    Covering indiscipline, lack of ethics and scams - those must be using a lot of taxpayer money over there!


    A Pocket Guide to the Military’s Many Scandals - NationalJournal.com

    AIR FORCE

    Nuclear Force Scandals:

    Nearly half of the 190 officers at an Air Force base in Montana are temporarily suspended for allegedly cheating on a monthly proficiency exam—or for knowing about the cheating. That would have been a bad enough P.R. nightmare for the Air Force. But the incident is only the latest for an increasingly battered nuclear-missile crew, amid questions about its morale and security.

    The alleged cheating was uncovered as investigators probed illegal drug use in the nuke force—and the news, unfortunately for military media professionals everywhere, broke around the same time that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel visited one of three bases responsible for the country's nuclear missiles. Air Force officials said last month that 10 officers have been tied to that investigation.

    There was also trouble at the top. The Air Force fired Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, who oversaw this country's land-based nuclear missiles, in October. The Inspector General outlined his "improper conduct" while part of a delegation to Moscow. That's putting it mildly. Carey, apparently, boldly declared that Pentagon leadership didn't support him, danced and interacted with foreign women, and was publicly drunk—to the point that witnesses worried about his ability to remain upright. He also made comments "regarding lovely ladies" that troubled some of the officials Carey was with.

    Happens when one gets god complex after invading a few weak nations for a few years. False sense of security and overestimating one's own military capabilities so to say. Also, lowering the recruiting bar doesn't help.

    May be not and the issue might be restricted with just "drinking".

    Maybe they don't like guarding this US President.

    For all we know, he may not be very 'likeable' and too 'demanding' and the best way to get out is being out for the counts - piss drunk!

    Easy way out! ;)
