I was waiting for that to come up. I think Milley was taken unawares. I have no problem with a reasonable explanation for a mistake, either by the general or the Samoans. Just don't make the mistake a second time in the near future.Two junior enlisted in a political photo op creates holy hell and Army investigation..... Chairman of Joint Chiefs in a political photo op that very likely violated several citizen's Freedom of Speech rights...crickets, no investigation. I hope these junior enlisted and everyone in their chain of command are able to use this for their defense just like the General did!
“I should not have been there,” Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said in a prerecorded video commencement address to National Defense University. “My presence in that moment and in that environment created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics.”
