Due to the short fall in the numbers of personal in the Armed Services, the then Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld decided to loosen the criteria on who can serve in the armed services. In the so called War of Terror, the military employed white supremacists, neo Nazis, those with criminal convictions, people with drug and alcohol problems, and those with mental health issues.

It was considered an "experiment" by Rumsfeld, to tackle the criticism that they DOD wasn't meeting its targets of raw recruits. These individuals were serving in military intelligence, Military Police and front line combat operations.

Would you not think that these kind of people would contaminate other personnel and spread the gang land mentality and criminal behaviour like a virus? Also when these personnel are no longer required what do you think they are going to do with the training the military has taught them? Turn on the military, criminal activities and god knows what else.

It makes me think that those in the administration and political leadership are flawed in their judgement.

In the fifth century AD a military officer in the Roman Empire stated in his military manual the following: "An Army raised without proper regard to the choice of its recruits was never yet made good by length of time; and we are now convinced by fatal experience that this is the source of all our misfortunes." The Empire was in dramatic decline at the time.

Apparently we do not learn from history.
