Wonders what top officials are doing to resolve scandal 091298 - The Augusta Chronicle



Much has been said about President Bill Clinton's actions. However, what I am not hearing is any comments or proposed actions by those people who have the job to review appropriate documentation, determine the nature of the information presented and take action, as required under their commissions, to bring forth the required charges.

What I am alluding to is the members of the Joint Chief of Staff and the Department of Defense Judge Advocate General. The members of these organizations have both the authority and the responsibility to review the information currently available, decide on the appropriate charges to be filed and convene the appropriate courts martial.

These "men of honor" have done their duty when it has come to their "subordinates." It is time for them to stand up and be counted when it will count the most.

We cannot afford nor can we condone a commander in chief who does not lead by example. Also, one who flagrantly violates the covenants of the Uniform Code of Military Justice should not be allowed to remain in control of the armed forces of the United States.
