AFCEA West and Capt. Jim Fanell

There have been recent press reports of a blunt talk given by Capt. Fanell at the AFCEA West conference.  For those who had not heard it, or read some of the reaction from it, we offer the below.

AFCEA West also is hosted by the U.S. Naval Institute, who takes the time to record most, if not all, of the panel discussions and keynote addresses.  Capt. Fanell’s participation on one of the panels was recorded and published on YouTube at the following link address:

His frank discussion started off with prepared remarks, and begins at minute 21 of the proceedings.

In addition, several bloggers have commented on his discussion, notably on the USNI Blog, under the title “Honesty can be uncomfortable”:
