The author reflects on the perception of dishonor in U.S. government officials. He says that presidential appointees tend to owe a degree of loyalty to the head of the state. He expresses his dismay at the growing trend of political appointees who write books, which address criticism to an administration, after their departure from the government service. He asserts that the act of rejecting political factors which affect any law enforcement process should be a tenet of an honorable action.
