My point is that the elected officials need to understand and admit one thing everyday: I do not know everything, I cannot know everything and therefore must rely on the experts that surround me to come up with workable solutions. Our elected officials seem to have fallen into "But they're just common soldiers" mode of thinking. The old attitudes of class 'n caste still seem to exist, both in the CAF and in it's political masters. Not too long ago, I had a commissioned officer try to tell me that enlisted men lack the understanding of the world to ever really be trusted to run anything larger than a section. While this isn't true of every officer, these types of attitudes still exist.
