Quote From Colin Powell

“The survey results were liked dynamite. The respondents blasted the Army for not facing its failures. The most devastating attack was on the integrity of the senior leadership. The officers surveyed indicted phony readiness reports, rampant careerism, old-boy assignments, inflated awards, fictitious body counts – the whole facade of illusion and delusion. Their leaders had let them down, and they said so. As the final report put it: There is a widespread feeling that the Army has generated an environment that rewards relatively insignificant, short-term indicators of success, and disregards or discourages the growth of long term qualities of moral strength.”
