Criminal gets slapped on the wrist - whistleblower forced to resign

Yesterday I blogged about how U.S. Army Major Davis escaped real justice despite pleading guilty to a serious federal criminal offense.  However, his misdeeds would have never seen the light of day had it not been for the courageous whistleblowing of Colonel (Dr.) Michael Eisenhauer.  That man deserves a medal.  Instead, he was drummed out of the Army.  This case illustrates the perils of doing the right thing.  It also illustrates a cultural problem among some leaders in the U.S. Army.  Read the Seattle Times article below.
