Retired General William Boykin, once serving as the United States Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and now an Executive Vice President at the Family Research Council, sat down with Tony Perkins to explain what went wrong for David Petraeus.

Good As You has the audio. Apologies. I can't seem to get it to embed. Below is the transcript.

General Boykin: What you're seeing is, you're seeing a declining morality in our military. I would tell you, Tony, that I believe that that is very deliberate. I think the military has been targeted by the left. I think it's been targeted, ah, largely by the gay and lesbian lobby, ah, but also by other elements of the left to bring the military down because the military has been a bastion of morality and ethics. It's been the anchor of our society for a very long time and you can't change our society completely until you lower the, ah, standards of the military and bring them down. That is what we're seeing here.

Tony Perkins: So General, let me be clear. The, what we see here, this rash of general officers that have been brought down through scandal, sex scandal, you believe this is a reflection of a declining moral standard within the military as a whole.

General Boykin:  I do think that is the case, Tony. I think that this is, ah, concrete evidence.

See. It's the gays fault that Petraeus couldn't keep it in his pants. Once we had finished our business of demolishing the East Coast with our gay hurricane, we set our sights on demolishing the once morally irreproachable military.

Of all the things they would like to pin on LGBT people, straight Generals having straight extramarital affairs is just about as hate-driven and devoid of reasoning as you can get.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
