  •  I have absolutely no doubt that Petraeus (1+ / 0-)

    and his cronies are in on this on some level, his and their too-rapid promotion to beyond their levels of incompetence being about today's toxic triangle of corruption between military leaders, the military industry, and RW media.

    It's like the NRA, pretending to be about gun rights but actually about gun maker profits. In this case the military industry buys politicians, who promote wars, increased defense spending and the careers of political generals like Petraeus, who shill for defense firms, whose activities are then promoted by RW media. Naturally, they would allow RW media on military computers, but not LW ones, since they tend to be anti-war and bloated defense spending.

    I doubt that this has much to do with being anti-gay (although I'm sure that such a bias exists and is strong at higher military levels). Rather, it's about politics, propaganda and defense contracts. Follow the money.
