The Pentagon has added 99 general and flag officers in the last decade, which equates to an 11% growth in that category, higher than any other.
Despite all the bluster about trimming the numbers of admirals and generals (there were supposed to be 17 getting the axe through Gates’ plan), there were in fact 9 added to the roster. It would appear the GFOPS (general and flag officer protection society) has swung into high gear at the expense of the real warfighters.
The “domestic army” is TSA agents. They are growing like wild fire.
