    True racism or just bad leadership?

    Her side stated this..
    No SHE didn't see it because she's projecting racism on him when clearly he's just making a poor decision.

    Sounds like this guy is just a (dufus) bad leader. There's a real difference between active racism and incompetence in your chain-of-command.

    Nobody knows what the true story is. Probably no one will ever know...

    This woman might be a bad leader that wasn't worthy of promotion. The general might be a sexist pig. Maybe it's something else entirely. IF the general is in the wrong, he needs to be straightened out. He should be promoting the most qualified, without regard to race or sex.

    I'm somewhat confused by senior officers involving the media and the federal court system into an internal dispute. The military has mechanisms for dealing with problems like this, and that should be the first course of action. If these officers are bringing the military into disrepute without first pursuing quieter methods, they're in the wrong also.

    The article seems alittle one sided. I'd like to see the qualifications of the people that got promoted and the people that didn't.
