Ralph Peters (Lieutenant Colonel, USArmy, Retired) is a monumental fool.
When I was still on active duty in the early 1990's, Peters was one of several people temporarily assigned to the Pentagon office of which I was deputy director. It took me about two days to recognize the Peters was useless. He is articulate, widely read, and talks a good show. However, his modus operandi is to make up his mind then seek "facts" to support his conclusions.
I tolerated him for about six weeks then fired him a half-a-dozen others, sending them back to their parent unit. Took us another six months to clean up the mess he left behind.
I can see the headline now---Butt makes ass of herself. You can't make this shit up.
hey FastF hope you are doing good, man
