    He is not the only one!

    "U.S. Africa Command has approximately 2,000 assigned personnel, including military, U.S. federal civilian employees, and U.S. contractor employees. About 1,500 work at the command’s headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. Others are assigned to AFRICOM units at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, and RAF Molesworth, England."

    U.S. Army Africa (USARAF): Operating from Vicenza, Italy...

    U.S. Naval Forces Africa (NAVAF): Headquartered in Naples, Italy...

    U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa (MARFORAF): Located in Stuttgart, Germany...

    Either its a good scam, or the geography is even worse than normal. :)
     
  6. This is shocking, US Generals are only meant to gouge the tax payer when working as consultants to Lockheed-Martin.
     
  7. That last sounds like the short straw to me.

  8. Fiddling - putting one's family first - in Africa. Surely a necessary requirement of the job? That said, although he is clearly a semi-indiginee, he really should have known better.
