When David Petraeus started his new job as director of the CIA, his new colleagues said don’t wear your uniform replete with medals and fruit cocktail bars to work; those medals are only relevant in a military environment. He took their advice. This advice didn’t flow down to Gen. Keith Alexander, head of the embattled National Security Agency, who wears his uniform with chest candy prominently displayed whenever he gets the chance. It’s as if he wants us to forget what he really is doing and focus on all the medals he has accumulated.
