The puzzle is why Flynn, who had a reputation as a meticulous tactical intelligence officer during his Army career, was so careless when he left the military. The story is a personal tragedy for Flynn, but it illustrates a larger problem in the national security community.Flynn certainly got a clear warning when he left the military after serving as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency.Flynn retroactively registered as a foreign-government representative for work on behalf of Turkey that occurred on the eve of Trump's election and Flynn's selection as national security adviser.Failure to reveal such information can sometimes violate Section 1001 of the U.S. criminal code, known as the "false statements" provision.When military and intelligence promotion panels review candidates for top positions, it's said they pay special attention to whether officers have the judgment to manage the subtle, unpredictable problems that arise for commanders. Military commanders need to know how to communicate in a wide open world.
