Military Self-Delusion on the Constitution

by Jacob G Hornberger

Several former U.S. defense secretaries and retired generals recently published an open letter about the current political environment in America. The letter stated, among other things: ‘Military officers swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution, not an oath of fealty to an individual or to an office.’ That’s just pure nonsense and self-delusion. Oh, sure, technically it’s true that military officers swear such an oath, but they don’t follow it. Instead, they faithfully and blindly follow the orders of the president, which means, as a practical matter, that their oath is one of fealty to the president, not to the Constitution.” (09/13/22)
