Days ago the German minister of defence had to step down, and brazenly claimed that all was well in the ministry.
A short article that had appeared days earlier revealed that not all was well, not at all:His major project, the reform of the Bundeswehr, was apparently criticised harshly by the chancellor's office.
It was apparently the conceptual wing-in-ground effect flight that it looked like.
I think i's be worthwhile to point this out because it basically means that
a) the reform planning so far was likely the crap it seemed to be
b) the firing of the state secretary who was responsible for the reform planning was probably based on his 'performance'
c) the real planning for the reform is probably only about to begin.
I've been 'critical' (to say the least) about much that originated from our ministry of defence during the last, well, about twenty years. This merely added to the pile.
