Annoying officer attitudes, #34,565

This is a great picture.

It's clever. It's funny (especially to a combat zone resident). It's also very counter-productive from an Information Operations perspective.

It plays right into the hands of the enemy, like it or not.

If I were an officer in that chain of command responsible for that vehicle, I'd feel compelled to do something about it.

Probably not enough as far as a resident of Foggy Bottom or a MSM talking head is concerned, but a change that would make a 180-degree difference in the take-away from the pic.*
