The Pentagon’s AI Office in Shambles, Hires Consulting Firm to Clean Up Their Mess
The Pentagon’s Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO) is in deep trouble, folks! It’s like a sinking ship, and they’ve had to bring in outside help just to keep it from going under. Can you believe it? The leadership score is so low that it’s in the negative! That’s right, negative 17 on a scale of negative 100 to 100. I didn’t even know you could go negative on a leadership score, did you? And it just keeps getting worse. They’ve hired a group called Gapingvoid to help them figure out what to do. Gapingvoid? Sounds more like a black hole than a reliable consulting firm to me!

And get this, Dr. Craig Martell, the big shot in charge of this mess, is already eyeing the door! He’s allegedly been on Zoom calls with staff talking about his exit plan. He’s not fooling anyone, though. He can say he’s not looking for a new job, but everyone knows what’s up. Morale is so low that even he wants out! Can you imagine working in a place where the big boss is trying to bail?
But it’s not just Martell plotting his escape. His right-hand peeps are jumping ship too. Joe Larson, Clark Cully, Dan Folliard, and Greg Little, all fleeing the scene of the crime. It’s like a game of musical chairs, except instead of music playing, it’s the sound of people looking for new jobs.
And let’s not forget about the lovely Margaret “Margie” Palmieri, Martell’s right-hand woman. She’s reportedly causing a ruckus, hiring her pals and family members left and right. It’s like a family reunion over at CDAO, with her picking and choosing who gets to join the party. Sounds more like a circus than a government office, if you ask me!
But the cherry on top of this chaotic sundae is the spending. They’re allegedly dishing out big bucks to people who don’t even know what they’re doing. I mean, come on! They’re throwing money at remote workers who can’t even do their jobs properly. It’s like a bad episode of “The Apprentice,” but instead of firing people, they’re just throwing money at them!
This whole CDAO fiasco is like a bad reality TV show, and someone needs to hit the reset button. Maybe they should hire the consultants to fix their own mess, how about that?
