1. Thank you for writing this.
2. I have also been perplexed at the disparate focus on sexual harassment in this case.
3. The Foot Hood Report, while insightful in some respects, lacked continuity because of the seemingly only loosely related topics that it covered (I.e. sexual assault / sexual harassment / missing persons).
The same, and ancillary, reports asserted that NCO's were unable to know their soldiers and that there was a lack of Sergeants. Notably at the E5-E6 level.
If Congress and the civilian leadership was more concerned about supporting the enabling words "This we'll defend." and less concerned about the preciousness of the buzzwords "Protect or defenders" there may be less of a problem.
The Giullan murder speaks right to the heart of the Me Too movement. It is the slobbering sexual appetite of men, men, men that is under the microscope. Her preparation to report an infidelity of a male soldier is within that scope. She became the face of the movement because she was going to show the scourge of male hedonism for what it was.
I'd bet a decent NCO corps could have solved this in two dozen better ways. It's a separate society, not an alternate reality. Me Too reminds me of the saying "An eye for an eye just leaves a room full of blind men."
