Army Unit Commanders Inflating Their Readiness Numbers

I'm seeing a disturbing trend where US Army unit commanders are obviously inflating their equipment readiness numbers. For example, a unit commander who owns 200 armored vehicles is saying only one of them is down. Seriously? This has to be the awesomest unit in the history of warfare. This kind of BS can not be happening without some kind of implicit agreement or even pressure from the brass to inflate the numbers. Somebody needs to go through these units and the Generals that are pressuring/overlooking the BS numbers and clean house. The only reason the media hasn't gone off on this is that they are batting for Obama and any embarrassment for the military is an embarrassment for him.
