Do you really think being Hawaiian is any sort of controversy? Hawaii became a territory in 1898 with a provisional government designed as a Democracy that would eventually become a state of the USA. This was understood in 1889. Hawaiians saw themselves as Americans well before statehood in 1959. Much of the SW was part of Mexico and Alaska was once part of Russia. Should we question their loyalty?
President Bush Sr. was the head of the CIA before becoming Vice and then President. No problems there.
As far as the sex scandal, yes, they do have free personal time when they are on foreign soil, nevertheless, at least three officers have already been fired. I agree this is shameful, but this sort of thing has been going on throughout history. I personally know of Russian attempts to provide young attractive women to traveling American businessmen and even military personnel. They did it to gain some favor. It probably worked. Not everyone accepted, but many did. I would hope our security was not compromised. I donít think it was. Manís weakness. Maybe it could be better controlled but, I donít see how this could be stopped. In Vietnam, prostitution was absolutely prevalent and condoned by the officers. There even were attempts by the North to entice Americans to defect, with a promise of very attractive girls. I saw the flyers. Fortunately, I donít know anyone that took them seriously or would even consider them.
