#2 Being legally cleared of military wrong-doing is not the same as being cleared of spousal fury for being humiliated.

#3 Yes LR, but the charges had their intended effect anyway. We are watching a slow speed purge of the military leadership, presumably to more agreeable cohorts.
Talking to cute girls may not be a punishable crime in the Army, but it can sure get you in dutch at home.

Remember these brilliant people still haven't figured out how the economy real works. Other than issuing decrees, they also don't understand how the whole government system operates in a republic. Thus the gross failures in their social programs. Don't expect them to understand how the American military operates either. You can appoint all the boot lickers you want to the head masters positions, but that doesn't mean the ranks will follow when the time comes. And those ranks who get out rather than put up with crap for pure promotion purposes, will provide the strength for any opposition when the mask comes off the tyrant's facade.
