a lack of an outsider’s view

The New Yorker
“A sixty-six-year old career soldier who has no substantive experience outside the military cannot possibly bring an impartial perspective to leadership at the Pentagon. When you have spent your whole life engaged with real or imagined threats , the lens through which you view the world will inevitably be biased toward the military. A person with a different background could have brought an outside perspective to the job, maybe one that would have complemented the military mind-set.”
