Generals and felons
By Sam Osborne
May 03, 2006
Letter to the editor:
Some in the Bush administration are condemning the retired generals
who think that they have a constitutional right of free speech
and are using it to advocate an essential change in the civilian
leadership of the Defense Department.
It must have also been wrong for some retired generals of the
past to stump for the presidency, win office and appoint their
own secretary of defense. Shame on generals Washington, Jackson,
William Henry Harrison, Taylor, Johnson, Grant, Hayes, Arthur,
Benjamin Harrison, Garfield, and Eisenhower.
On leaving the service, these men should have realized that they,
like convicted felons, had lost their full rights and responsibilities
