  •  The only way to have honorable men & women... (10+ / 0-)

    ...and to respect the military and the people serving honorably with good intentions is to enforce the rule of law and hold dear the clear boundaries that empower them, that allow their work to be honorable, to live up to their oath.  

    For instance, an easy example...because James Clapper chose to lie to Congress and to Americans rather than to insist on going into private chambers to answer truthfully then he must be prosecuted and replaced. There's no point in having Congressional testimony otherwise. Clapper can no longer do his job because he can't be believed, not by people above or below his chain of command. Without boundaries or the rule of law, no one can really know how to act honorably.
