Bauer, who had been assured the explosion would destroy the [[Stargate]] at the test site, was stunned by the development; when shutting down the wormhole proved impossible, he relied on Carter to handle the situation. After the [[wormhole]] disengaged, having reached the thirty-eight minute limit, he apologized to her for putting the base in jeopardy.

A USAF general officer who demonstrates a less than average IQ, an abrasiveness with subordinates and a complete lack of professionalism toward duty is a contradiction in terms. When he entered the USAF, presumably in 1958 via the Academy or in 1962 or 1963 via an AFROTC program, neither would accept such a person. AFROTC required a science or engineering bachelors degree, and the Air Force Academy also required high standards for its Military Science bachelors degree. Plus, the USAF required an intelligence test. Even if Bauer, for the sake of argument, passed all of that, such an officer would have extremely poor OERs because of his inability to get along with both superiors and subordinates. An officer like that would not last long in any branch of the military. Even if by some miracle, Bauer managed to continue in the USAF past 20 years, with poor OERs, making enemies of superiors and subordinates, advancement would be slow and it's not likely that he'd be promoted past colonel's rank, in order to limit the damage he could do. The most likely scenario is that he'd not be accepted into the Academy at all, not be accepted into an upper division science or engineering discipline in college and instead be enlisted rank in one of the other branches of the military.
