DoD introduces Devil's Advocate General Corps
"I'm just asking questions!"
Pretty metal seal either way. I’m just sayin’.
WASHINGTON D.C. — In a secret ceremony conducted in a cave on October 13, a Friday, the Department of Defense established the Devil’s Advocate General (DAG) Corps. This new organization will fulfill the essential role of presenting contentious topics, volatile anecdotes, and strawman arguments to otherwise reasonable discourse throughout all branches of the US military.
Many service members believe that the official title of Devil’s Advocate is long overdue in the military.
“I am so glad we will finally have trained professionals doing this for once,” remarked Major Kristen Griest. “You would not believe the weak BS that I have heard from these amateur so-called ‘Devil’s advocates’ about my Ranger tab and what it means.”
Named the head of the DAG Corps for the Navy, Rear Adm. Kyle Lockwood agrees that devil’s advocacy is a job for an expert. Lockwood takes his job seriously and even recently performed the vital task of playing “Devil’s advocate” as it concerned the nomination of Admiral Lisa Franchetti for Chief of Naval Operations.
“I’m not anti-woman but just for the sake of argument, do we really need a woman to be CNO?” Lockwood asked while washing down cool ranch Doritos with a lukewarm Mountain Dew. “I think she could probably do the job okay, but will other countries really take us seriously if she gets confirmed? I mean, what about bears?”
