Subject: RE: BS: How low can you go?
And with respect to the first issue you raised, you again led with a major unfounded assumption, that the US forces were dropping their recruiting standards for nefarious reasons. I think you should apply Occam's razor: choose the simplest answer that covers all elements of the question. Could it be that the US Army needs more recruits than it can get by skimming only the top of the pool of applicants?
