Did Lt. General Flynn spend too much time in a quasi office "shipping container"?
Although I'm still in the process of reading "General Chaos", I am impressed with the talent of the author Nicholas Schmidle. He aptly creates an intelligently nuanced report. In fact, there's more to this article than the face of the stern LtGeneral Michael Flynn. In fact, the reporting reveals how much we don't know (and have a lot to learn) about our government. Although the focus of the article is on Flynn, there's a universe of information, just beneath the surface of the narrative. Althuogh the feature is indexxed as "Letter from Washington", the article is more like a "Report to the Nation".
Quotes in "General Chaos" given to Schmidle, by Lt.Gen. Flynn and obtained from his reporting sources, provides insight into a man who has lost his political way. Apparently, Flynn believes the world order is influenced according to his wrong minded thinking. Did Flynn spend too much time in a make-shift storage container, a quasi "office", set up in Afghanistan, and talk to himself? Possibly, he heard his echo bounce off the metal walls and believed he was being validated? (Of course, that's just my own opinion.)
Stay tuned for Julie's Cliff Notes after I finish reading the entire article.
