THE CREDIBILITY CRISIS

The following article addressed issues of military culture, as raised in an earlier article written by Sara Lister, who served as Army Assistant Secretary for Manpower and Personnel during the Clinton years. (In 1997, Ms. Lister caused great controversy by referring to the Marines as "extremists.") Introduction: "The true crisis in the military is the credibility gap between Pentagon leaders and the troops they lead. High-ranking officers [In photo: Army General Hugh Shelton, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs with Bill Clinton, the Commander in Chief] have lobbied for legislation and equivocated on readiness issues, eroding the trust of their subordinates."
