"They are under my command essentially," said [ Bill ] Ritter, who doesn't have a military background.

We are a bit disappointed because we have opined elsewhere that Mark Udall came closer to the Michael Dukakis model of a Modern Major General. Perhaps Udall and Ritter will invite Dukakis to join them in a rendition of the Gilbert and Sullivan classic:

But still, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of a modern Major-General
