To say this man has anger management problems would be an understated mischaracterization.
Based upon the testimony given in the report, I’d say he’s very likely suffering from personality disorder, with a definite narcissistic element, and possibly borderline psychotic.
While the MDA’s headquarters remain at Fort Belvoir, VA, nearly 5,000 people work for the agency in offices on the Army’s Redstone Arsenal, in Huntsville, AL. The majority of the agency’s programs are now managed primarily in the Von Braun Complex of offices. Over 2,200 MDA positions relocated to Huntsville after the 2005 Base Realignment And Closure (BRAC) commission decision.
LTG O’Reilly is often in Huntsville and has an office in the new Von Braun III wing.
Last October during a ribbon cutting ceremony in Huntsville, LTG O’Reilly said, “The largest concentration of missile defense engineers anywhere in the world is in this building,” which he said made it the “hub of missile defense for our nation.”
The 15th Annual Space and Missile Defense Conference will be held at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama, 13 to 16 August 2012.

Lt. Gen. Patrick O’Reilly, the head of the Missile Defense Agency, mismanaged his office, harassed and bullied his senior staff, and overall failed in his leadership of the Pentagon’s largest program, according to a previously undisclosed internal report obtained exclusively by The Cable.
O’Reilly “engaged in a leadership style that was inconsistent with standards expected of senior army leaders,” in violation of Army regulations on ethics and leadership, according to a May investigation and report by the Defense Department‘s Inspector General‘s office that was never released to the public. The IG’s office is recommending that Pentagon leadership take “corrective action,” against O’Reilly.
The report found that O’Reilly regularly yelled and screamed at subordinates, often in public, demeaned and belittled employees, and behaved in such a way as to result in the departure of at least six senior staffers from MDA during his tenure.
“We determined that LTG O’Reilly’s behavior and leadership were Read the rest of this entry »

A: Because President George W. Bush wanted it that way.
AP Science Writer Seth Borenstein wrote an interesting Q & A style column about the shuttles’ retirement, which was published Fri May 13, 6:01 pm ET.
His article – which offers an explanation – follows below.
WASHINGTON – As the space shuttle program winds down, questions are flying about what’s happening and why. The launch countdown began Friday for the second-to-last flight. Some answers about the end of the space shuttle:

“I am a Blue Dog Democrat. I must align myself with the Republican Party.” – Parker Griffith, M.D., Representative, Alabama 5th congressional district
By now, the news of Alabama Congressional Representative Parker Griffith’s decision to divorce himself from the party that elected him and adulterate with Republicans, is all over the Internet. Doubtless, it will be mentioned on teevee talk shows, and their even more mindless radio counterparts. The Tennessee Valley is definitely abuzz with the news.
But, it will be in passing.
That’s “passing, ” as in “passing gas,” or “passing stool.”
And that’s exactly what it is – Parker Griffith’s passing.
He will pass from this life, into political oblivion. Having made his move, he has damaged the 5th Congressional District and effectively put a knife into the aorta – the main blood vessel – of everything in the district for which he previously worked, including most notably, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the Army’s Redstone Arsenal.
The local newspaper in the seat of his district, Read the rest of this entry »
