The army is led by a criminal commander-in-chief, so it's no surprise that they recruit and corrupt lesser criminals. Soon they'll starting putting a cap on how smart grunts can be though -- they don't want to start getting questioned about their operations (which aren't at all in the best interests of the rank-and-file soldiers).
