Is Felt a traitor or hero? To me he's a hero. (And I was working for President Dickster-Trickster in the WH at the time.) But the far bigger issue is that thing they taught all of us junior military types: Despite the overwhelming Rule of Order in the Military, one must not obey an illegal order. (Too bad for Lindy English that she was AWOL that day.) Felt apparently thought the WG investigation was a coverup, and sounded off. Whenever we learn anything particularly "questionable" about a big institution (think Sherron Watkins & Enron), it's invariably because ... ONE LONELY SOUL ... decided to dis-obey an illegal or immoral order.
Hats off, say I.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
