To the Editor:

I am puzzled, not to say perplexed, by the inclusion of the Commentary by Paul Kimmelman, "Learning From Military Leadership" (Feb. 20, 2013). I cannot begin to imagine what his intention was in writing it, nor yours in publishing it.

Mr. Kimmelman's argument is rife with logical inconsistencies. For starters, he fails to note that the military is organized in a strict, rigid hierarchy based on unquestioning obedience. I'd love to meet the principal whose school operates on this basis.
