Joe Biden cannot be “disrespected” by U.S. military personnel.
In an email from the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) Chief of Staff, members were reminded that per a Uniform Code of Military Justice and Department of Defense Directive clause they cannot disrespect senior government leadership.
This includes the President, Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, and more.
This applies to active duty and retired naval intelligence members, the report says.
Even for civilians, the email from ONI says “you are reminded of the danger that your public comments will/could be attributed to ONI or the Department of Defense.”
