More Rank Ignorance. From the New York Times. Again. 
Apparently the editors of the New York Times think brigadier generals command battalions.

Military intelligence personnel said the unit's two- to five-page memorandums were to be sent for final approval to a three-member board that included Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski, the commander of the 800th Military Police Battalion, and Maj. Gen. Barbara Fast, the top Army intelligence officer in Iraq.

And again, this embarrassing gaffe could have been prevented had a veteran--or even a reasonably well-informed amateur--been asked to check out the article.

You know, since we're trying to affix responsibility to a particular level of command, I don't think it's too much to ask that the reporter the nation's most prestigious newspaper assigns to cover the story--oh, I don't know--maybe UNDERSTANDS THE LEVELS OF COMMAND!

Splash, out
