Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Bob Scales went “On The Record” tonight to discuss the photo.
“You notice this was a group photo, it wasn’t an individual,” he said. “The bottom line is it’s all about leadership, Greta. It’s all about taking charge … when you’re in charge … and you have a bunch of soldiers clowning around a flag-draped casket, you stop it, and you send people home instead of sitting there and joining in this charade.”
