Another Top Pentagon Tech Official Resigns, Says Breaking Through Bureaucracy Was Like ‘Working to Defy Gravity’ ~ April 20, 2022

__________________________________________________________________–

The Pentagon lost another top IT official on April 18, with the resignation of Preston Dunlap, the founding chief architecture officer of the Air and Space Forces.

In an open resignation letter posted to social media, Dunlap said that he was proud of the three years he spent at the Defense Department but that bureaucracy, a risk-averse culture, and other internal issues made innovation more difficult than it should have been.

He said that the department fostered an environment in which it was “hard, but not impossible” to innovate, and compared the effort required to break through Pentagon bureaucracy to the effort needed to push satellites past Earth’s gravity.

“I’ve spent the last three years working to defy gravity and get desperately needed technology into our operators’ hands,” Dunlap said.

“By the time the Government manages to produce something, it’s too often obsolete; no business would ever survive this way, nor should it.”

Dunlap’s resignation follows that of Pentagon Chief Software Officer Jason Weiss earlier in April, and that of Air and Space Forces Chief Software Officer Nicolas Chaillan in October. Both Weiss and Chaillan had used their resignations to warn that out-of-control bureaucracies were preventing a talented and dedicated workforce in the Defense Department from succeeding.

“This is a massive loss for DoD,” Chaillan said in reference to Dunlap’s departure. “The number of top talent leaving the Pentagon is very concerning.”

“I don’t know anyone who is as good as Preston in the entire Department. [He] Will be very tough to replace, particularly since they have yet to replace me. Even worse after [Weiss] left last month too.”

In the eight-page document marking his departure from the Pentagon, Dunlap painted a bleak picture of a military bureaucracy run amok, with little to no resources or support available for those trying to change the status quo.

“Not unsurprisingly to anyone who has worked for or with the Government before, I arrived to find no budget, no authority, no alignment of vision, no people, no computers, no networks, a leaky ceiling, even a broken curtain,” he said. “You get the picture. Sadly, I was probably better off than most who show up to serve.

“Ironically as I’m writing this, I received notification that the phone lines are down at the Pentagon IT help desk. Phone lines are down? It’s 2022, folks.”

Dunlap noted that there was a strong cadre of dedicated individuals who had worked to stand up to the Pentagon’s efforts at building a next-generation fighting force, but that they were too often blunted by bureaucracy.

He singled out a handful of individuals for gratitude in continually supporting the mission regardless of the trials faced. Among them was Gen. John Hyten, former vice chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Like Dunlap, Hyten also tried to combat the growing military bureaucracy and, in the final months before his retirement in November, sounded the alarm on what he saw as a number of red flags for U.S. military readiness.

In his resignation letter, Dunlap gave the impression of hope in the face of long odds, and said that it was still possible to find talent lost in the woods of military bureaucracy or hiding behind a title that would normally be overlooked for technical expertise.

  1. THE ENEMYS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE AND HAVE BEEN INSIDE OUR GATES FOR A VERY, VERY LONG TIME, THAT HAS GIVEN THEM TIME ENOUGH TO BLEND WITH THE PATRIOTS, AND ONLY REAL PATRIOTS CAN SPOT THEM BUT IN MANY CASES THEY WONT, BECAUSE THAT ENEMY OF OURS ARE SHIELD PROTECTED EVEN BY OUR RELIGOUS INSTITUTIONS. THAT IS WHY IT IS SO HARD FOR THE AVRAGE JOE TO DO ANY THING ABOUT IT, KEEPING THEM IGNORANT OF WHAT IS TRULY AFECTING THEIR LIVES AND THAT OF ALL THEIR FAMILIES.

    SO FOR AS LONG AS THE RELIGIOUS ZELOT ZIONIST JEWS ARE TAKEN OUT PUBLICLY AND EXECUTED FOR PREACHING THEIR FALSE DOCTRINE BASED ON A LOT OF OLD TESTAMENT INSTEAD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT WHICH IS THE ONE THAT BRINGS SALVATION TO HUMANITY THE ENEMIES WILL BE COVER ON RELIGIOUS PROTOCOLS.

    AND SINCE FEAR HAS ALREADY BEEN INGRAINED IN THE SHEEPLE OF WHAT GOD DOES TO THOSE THAT STAND AGAINST THE SO CALLED SELF APOINTED CHOSEN PEOPLE. SHEEPLE WILL NEVER DEFEND THEMSELVES FROM THIS MORTAL ENEMIES INSIDE THE GATES.

    THE ONLY ONES THAT ARE AND HAVE PUNISHED THROUGH OUT THEIR LIVES ARE THE NON JEWS IN AMERICA, AND EVEN AFTER TRUMP IN OFFICE HE HAS DONE NOTHING TO PROTECT THE DOWNTROTEN NON JEWS $ 3,000.00 MISERABLE DOLLARS CAN NOT HELP ANY BODY TO BE PRPARED FOR WHAT TRUMP AND THE SO CALLED WHITE HATS ARE PERMITING THE JEWS CONTINUE TO DO TO AVRAGE JOE ON MAIN STREET.

    WHILE THE DAMN JEWS KEEP ON LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANKS WITH SUIT CASES LOADED WITH MONEY TO CONTINUE SCREWING THE NON JEW, HOW MANY CRIMES DOES IT TAKE FOR ANY JUST JUDGE TO SEND SOME ONE TO BE HUNG FOR TREASON,? TO DESTROY AN AVRAGE JOE IT ONLY TAKES A FALSE WITNESS TO SEND THEM TO JAIL AND EXECUTED IF THE JUDGE SEES HE OR SHE ARE PATRIOTS.
