According to Brian Cullin, who wrote an opinion piece for the Seattle Times today, the Navy is eventually going to have to figure out how to work with the local citizens instead of rolling over them. He says if it doesn’t, the Navy will inevitably “lose”.
Who is this Brian Cullin, and why does he think he knows anything about this subject?
He is a retired Navy captain who most recently served as a senior adviser at the State Department. In the ’90s he served as assistant White House press secretary in the Clinton Administration.
Here is his letter, below. The original publication with the Seattle Times can be seen here.
