Affairs, embezzlement and scandals

An affair that caused the resignation of CIA director General Petraeus is just the latest in a list of scandals to engulf the military's highest ranking officials. CNN's Chris Lawrence reports on how some at the top have strayed from the military's code of ethics.

    Mr. Lawrence's report that the hubris at higher ranks, especially among flag offices, is more common than in lower ranks may be mistaken. Last summer I observed a workshop of ex-female enlistees from the armed services who told tales of widespread harassment and assault during their time in the military. There are deep problems that go from the top to the bottom of our armed forces-problems that are not allowed to be dealt with outside of the chain of command and therefore often go unsolved, since "feces" is normally never allowed to flow uphill.
