I am ignoring nothing. You continue to equate the seriousness of adultery
with that of disobeying orders and lieing. My point is that adultery by
itself would warrant no more nor no less attention then others participating
in the rampant adultery. Had Flinn obeyed the order to cease and desist  and
had told the truth we would not be having this debate. I agree all military
personnel should be punished for their transgressions. However, it is
ridiculous to expect the punishment for adultery to be the same as for
disobeying orders or lieing. If you are saying disobeying orders and lieing
is rampant then I might agree with you but if that is really the case we
have a much more serious problem then deciding punishment.
