In theory it doesn’t matter. These people are fucking stupid, and think themselves above the law.

If they applied the same level of scrutiny when it comes to security clearance as they do to your average enlisted guy with a TS, most of the government would be in prison.

I know of several people who ended their careers with poor choices when it comes to security, such as taking a crew photo in a classified space. One pipe went to the reactor, and that was enough to start an investigation. Just an unlabeled pipe. Career over.

Meanwhile you have the chairman of the joint chief making personal phone calls to CHINA undermining the fucking CIC.

I’m convinced at this point that the cabal has intentionally turned formal education into a retard factory. It’s just about a certainty that the more education a person has, the bigger the retard they are.

A fucking E2 meat shield would know that calling China is a bad fucking idea. But somehow this retard thought it was smart.

Seems like worse for him, better for us. I can understand maybe tipping off an enemy in a Dr. Strangelove kind of scenario (where a crazy hijacks a nuke), but if he is not in command he shouldn't be interfering at all.

But isn't Milley the 2nd nuclear launch key guy? If so, that's kinda in the chain of command. Or, even if not, if he is surreptitiously inserting himself into the chain of command it kina means the same thing too.

Exactly. Sooooooooo many people don't understand the difference between the Joint Chiefs and the operational side (the 11 Unified Combatant Commanders)

Anyone giving you flack over this are either uneducated, shills, or Chinese bot farmers

EDIT -- there is some nuance here. I usually answer the Joint Chiefs vs Combatant Commanders confusion from an operational perspective (where your head also was). But the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs IS in the chain of command for the nuclear gold codes. So technically if you look at the question narrowly, Milley does have some authority here. Doesn't forgive him for talking to the Chinese though...clearly treason if true.
