And I wonder if the Pentagon has an interest in being completely truthful about their desertion rates?
I mean it couldn't possibly be in their interest to lowball that number, now could it? When they're facing a huge numbers crunch?
So then, since you want to readily discount Steve's article, obviously because you feel it is partisan, and the stats untrustworthy... it's fair for everyone else to do the same with the article you posted from the left-leaning telegraph.co.uk. After all, they too could be manipulating the figures to suit their agenda.
If the Pentagon's numbers agreed with yours though, you'd be hailing them. But because they counter what your article says, you feel they could be inaccurate and maybe "doctored".
