A bit hyperbolic.  One could with as much justification state that
there is no such thing as an ex-marine, an ex-seal, an ex-commissioned
officer, or an ex-almost-any-sensitive-position that has to do with
the running of a modern industrial state.  Various state-secret laws
effectively see to that if nothing else.

In any case, all these organizations are based on task-completion and
need-to-know principles.  Once you are no longer tasked then you are
effectively retired, even if still employed, until re-tasked.  Once
you are more-or-less permanently 'untasked' then the only question is
which budget does your paycheck offset.

This is not to say that I disagree with the underlying point, only
that it is a bit overly selective in its formulation.
