In all honesty, wtaf is this—the President is ordering the Secretary of the Navy to rescind awards to servicemembers b/c they were involved in a prosecution of one of his political supporters
What is the message here? If you're in the military and take actions the President disagrees w/ for political reasons, you won't advance, awards will be stripped, and you'll get publicly trashed by the Commander in Chief
Since this is coming up a lot (and it's a fair concern), the awards were not given to the prosecutor who was dismissed for authorizing spyware sent to the defense. These were the JAGs who took over the case when he was removed a month before trial. taskandpurpose.com/gallagher-pros…
If you read the citation excerpts, the awards were given specifically because of the immense amount of work that was needed in a short time b/c of the turn over.
