It stands to reason to hire ex-generals

They have connections in the Good 'Ol Boy network, especially with former West Point buddies, to persuade the Pentagon and Congress committees to buy more war toys.

Like how Congress and others in DC were privy to Wall street insider info that would be illegal for citizens. This is the real power and privileged that comes with holding office--while still earning a nice paycheck and entitlements at our expense.
