A reader who shall be nameless, but who I happen to know was in the Pentagon
on September 11, 2001,
"At today's press conference Adm. Mullen, Chairman JCS, prattled the same "diversity is strength" nonsense. While they laud "diversity" the Pentagon regularly ignores great American war victories and commemorations including V-E and V-J Day. For Veterans' Day there was not a single exhibit poster on the Pentagon concourse, but there's always room for women, Hispanics, Asians, etc. to be commemorated. In one particularly ignominious commemoration of Black History Month, Angela Davis, the communist was even given space as an outstanding black."
What Admiral Mullen hasÂ said was that diversity is a "strategic imperative"
and the that diversity is "our highest personnel priority."
More than recruiting midshipmen, who, when assigned to an honor guard, can remember to bring their shoes and hat.
