I wasn’t there at the time, but I know more about that task than I would ever have wanted to.Stuart Skeates should have been held accountable for Bastion - I say that as someone who was there on that tour, under that HQ, and in the email chains and some of the meetings for the CISU advice to the HQ. That HQ was warned, repeatedly, they repeatedly ignored the warnings (for bad stated reasons, too) which directly led to the vulnerabilities that caused the attack.
What about the:
-Team Leaders of repeated Theatre Capability Reviews that refused to resource the task with people
- The several EC heads in theatre, PJHQ and DECs, that refused to resource the task with ISTAR kit.
- The multiple comds who refused to allocate guards on a weekly basis, so their weapons could have CWS zeroed to them. Rather we change pers every 24 hours.
- The multiple RSMs who refused to let those pers go on guard in the morning so they may actually get to see what’s in their arcs during daylight, as opposed to in the dark.
But hey, you know, and as I was told multiple times ‘quit yer whining, it’s only Bastion FFS’.
