what this guy could have done:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- In an extraordinary move, the Army sacked a four-star general who was the subject of a Defense Department investigation into alleged sexual misconduct, an official said Tuesday.

Gen. Kevin P. Byrnes, commander of Army Training and Doctrine Command, was approaching retirement when the decision to relieve him of duty was made by the Army chief of staff, Gen. Peter Schoomaker.

The Army announced no specific allegation against Byrnes, but a senior official said it involved unspecified sexual misconduct. The official spoke only on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the allegation.

He must have *ahem* asked (nudge nudge) and/or told (wink wink). Now if he had pulled some good ol' boy hi-jinks like, say, throwin' a hood over somebody, standing him up on a box and hanging wires off his nuts, or holding a dog inches from a bound and shackled dude, or piling a bunch of nude guys in a room and getting some fun lovin' buddies to pose for pictures, hell, he'd have probably been promoted! Move along, nothin' to see here...
