Interesting reading, in a fashion. Towards the end - this caught my eye.
While one of his aides insists that Mullen would be the last person to use the word "legacy," Mullen himself says, "I'm not going to be here forever. I'm thinking of the young people who come after me."Really? Really?
Funny - I didn't see any discussion of how he fought a losing battle against the surge .... wrong there too. Hmmmm.
Yes, a tough job - but there is a major characteristic to superior leaders of major corporations - they do not hide their failures. They discuss them and learn from them. Hmmmmm.
UPDATE: I knew something about that photo bothered me. It just screamed "40s and 50s Navy" to me, but I could not place it. Not the uniform per se; but the tone, saturation, and noir vibe of the photo itself. Additionally - the angle, lens distortion, F-stop and lack of glasses on ADM Mullen simply made him look like another person altogether. Thanks to Bullnav in comments, I can now place it.
The Chairman isn't supposed to look like a WWII FADM - no, the photographer isn't that obsequious as that - no, he has a lot more cheek.
Who is The Chairman supposed to look like? Humphrey Bogart's LCDR Queeg from The Caine Mutiny. Tell me we're wrong.
