He's jumped from being important to being dispensable if he can't prove his usefulness every two years. He'll bury any controversy relating to him faster than you can and unless he's your 2RO or swapping fluids with your 2RO he's meaningless.
Excuse my ignorance (ex Spec Op, you know, in the days when we actually got along together so probably a long time since most of you were in) but do you still have a Director Int? As the Signals have been reduced from a Major General (SOinC), then to Brigadier (D Sigs) and now to Colonel (Col Sigs?) and will probably resurrect the title SOinC as Supervisory Office in Chief SSgt in the coming years, have the Int Corps managed to retain a Brigadier as the top man?
Sigs have gone from 2* to 1* to no* in a relatively short period of time. Have the Int Corps managed to hang on to their top man?
