Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta has received a memo from the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff offering recommendations on ethics training for senior general and flag officers, Pentagon press secretary George Little said Friday.
“We haven’t determined how we’re going to release information on the review,” he added.
One of the most notable: David H. Petraeus, a retired four-star Army general, resigned as CIA director last month after admitting to an extramarital affair.
“The secretary believes that the vast majority of flag officers comport themselves the way they should,” Mr. Little said. “But there have been some instances where some officers have fallen short of the standards he demands.”
