USSS Director Randolph Alles, a retired Marine Corps major general who was appointed two years ago, is on his way out the door just the day after the head of the Department of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen, resigned under pressure on Sunday night. Alles reported to her. More ousters of agency heads within DHS are possible and a number of key positions remains vacant. An administration official said the decision to seek the resignation of Alles was made 10 to 14 days ago — before a March 28 incident in which a Chinese woman was arrested at Mar-a-Lago without an invite, touching off security concerns.

WHY is it, that in nearly every such Government position the occupant always seems to be a retired military officilial ? Military personnel are trained to be military officials who's main task is of military nature and organise tactics/training/planning excetra. Nowhere within their scope of experience are CIVILIAN organisations. Their mindset is simply not organised in this way. Therefore they see everything as a military situation and use military strategy to deal with them.

This is, IMHO, why the U.S. is today, in the position it is in. When you retire a military individual, that means RETIREMENT, put them out to pasture, not give them a lucarative Government job on top of their already adequate pension. Also, military individuals stick together and ALWAYS put the needs of the military first, BEFORE country. Such folks are detrimental to Government policies. Trump, despite my belief he's a nincompoop, is clearing the swamp in this regard.
