Disconnect cited between troops, civilian leadership, acc to Military Times
Although not quite as dramatic as the Viet Nam Conflict, the erosion of support from our warriors for our leaders is telling about possible outcomes of this conflict.
From Congress to the White House to the Pentagon, the career-oriented heart of the military appears increasingly estranged from its leaders in Washington, according to results of the 2005 Military Times Poll
• 58 percent agreed that President Bush had their best interests at heart, down 11 percentage points from a year ago.
• 64 percent agreed that senior uniformed leaders had their best interests at heart, down six points.
• Congress saw the most dramatic drop: Just 31 percent agreed Congress looked out for their best interests, less than half the number a year ago.
