Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld; and General  Pace, Vice Chairman, Joint Chiefs Of Staff

 May 11, 2004

SEC. RUMSFELD: General Pace — and it is this; as I’ve reflected over what’s taken place and thought about the fact that this is an enormous institution — you know, we have

700-plus-thousand civilian employees, and 1.4 (million) men and women on active duty, plus all the Guard and Reserve we will move up to close to two and a half to three million people.    And we have to, to do our business, develop procedures and a process, and habits, so that the work gets done, and so that we serve our country well.  And that’s understanding, and it’s understandable.

 

            And then we move into the 21st century, and we moved from a peacetime to a wartime environment.  And we moved from a(n) industrial age to a digital age. And suddenly, the habits, the process, the procedures we use may not be quite appropriate.  And when one thinks about the impact that this thing has had on our country and on our department, and on the men and women in uniform, on all of us, one has to ask how might we adjust our procedures and our — the processes we use to be able to extract up from down low those things that might have an impact like this is having, and understand it down low enough that it can be moved up, not with the normal speed of weeks or months, but in a way that recognizes the danger to this institution and to the country?  I don’t know the answer to it.  I know we — that this — clearly everyone will be very sensitive about the problem of prisoner abuse for the period ahead.  I wonder if there are other habits or procedures or processes we’re using that –You will all know what you do.  And you know I don’t know what you do. You know that there’s no way in the world for Pete Pace or Dick Myers or other people to understand what you do when you get up in the morning and come here and do your work.  What I’m asking is that you think about it in the 21st century and think about it in the information age and ask yourself are there things happening in what you’re doing that somebody else needs to know that they didn’t need to know in the last century and they didn’t need to know in the industrial age.  But with news at 24/7 or with the impact that something like this can have, you may see things that ought to be elevated, or we ought to find better ways to drill down or to drill up and communicate it so that what you know and you’d normally handle in the normal order of things ought not to be handled in the normal order of things and — and move it up in some way.  So I just leave that as a thought.  I don’t — obviously, there’s no way I’m smart enough to know what it might be, but I worry that there’s something else like this down there that we haven’t adjusted this big institution’s procedures or habits to account for.

Her conclusion was:

When something is important make sure it makes it up and down the chain of command; push the point if it is not getting through.

She took matters into her own hands. Does she save the world, or des she get fired?

Looking at Henry, you probably wouldn’t consider him the type to settle down with one woman, or faerie in this case. However, after being with Maize, the Light faerie of his dreams, for nearly two years, he is ready to make a life-long vow. But, when a Dark faerie, Wood faerie, and faerie harem complicate their lives, will their love survive?

On January 15, 2009 the world watched a jetliner make a landing on the Hudson River. Paul Kale watched a fat, drunken man on a water taxi attempt to assault a woman. He intervened and made the poor fellow drink some Hudson River. Kale passed along his information to the woman after the man fell overboard. He was lucky enough to spend some time with June Leston following that incident and wished he had more time to give her.

Petty Officer Kale was a member of the NJ Naval Militia-Joint Command and had been petitioning for months to be placed on active duty with Federal troops which hadn’t been done in over one hundred years. He felt compelled to serve his country and had done everything he could to get deployed. Shortly after he was given the go ahead he met June and had no choice but to continue their relationship with only letters.

Ten months into his deployment Kale was reminiscing about a letter from June when he ran afoul of an attempted terrorist attack on his installation. After heeding June’s written advice he ends up in a shootout with hostile forces, but with assistance from both Airman and Marines he is able to neutralize the hostile forces.

Kale invites June to his unit’s annual banquet up on his return, but before she arrives she notices a truck with decals similar to the one that attacked Kale overseas. She manages to use her guile to overpower the truck and the driver. After reporting the truck to Homeland Security she continues to the banquet.

Kale takes a stroll through the unit banquet and finally runs into June. She was the picture of beauty even after thwarting a terrorist attack. After nearly a year apart they very quickly fall into each other’s arms and lives.

Fey Story

Guinevere

“Have you ever asked yourself what if the Arthurian legend was rewritten

Break The Walls

“In every story, there is a bad guy. The one born to be despised and shunned, the antithesis to the protagonist. We wonder so little about who they are, and yet, they deserve so much more of our attention. In the Arthurian saga, Morgan le Fay is one of those characters who are there behind almost every scene, often unseen and unheard of, but they are there nonetheless. She plots against Arthur and Guinevere, she tries to kill Merlin, she is obsessed with obtaining the throne of Britain.

What is her motivation? What is hidden deep down inside of her heart? Is she truly this one-dimensional wicked character who plots and sacrifices the innocent without remorse, or is there more to her?

If you’ve grown tired of reading about the good guys and how they always save the world, then this is the right book for you. For, the bad guys are human, too. They need our understanding, our compassion, our sympathy. If nothing else, they deserve to have their stories heard. This one belongs to Morgan le Fay. “
