As the story of general Patreus starts to unfold it seems like there are hints of bigger problems. I have seen several articles that talk about his strong belief in "mentoring" young female officers. As a high ranking commanding officer the power in the relationship was obviously all in the generals favor. Once he took a civilian job, albeit a very powerful one he lost some of that control and the next thing you know his protege was hacking into his email account and sending messages to other potential biographers.
It seems like perhaps one of the problems in both Iraq and Afghanistan was that the man in charge was a little more concerned with his personal life (getting laid) than with winning the war, but it was considered unamaerican to even criticize the man named patreus. After the Sandusky scandal The NCAA at least tried to do something about a culture that allowed people like Sandusky to prey on vulnerable young boys, hopefully the military and the people that are supposed to be in charge of it, will look at what happened under patreus and also make some changes.
