I agree that this particular SES official behaved very poorly, but I do think it's important to point out that SES personnel ARE recognized as equivalent to general officers (as far as civilian and military status can possibly be regarded as equivalent). That gives him no right to wear the insignia, obviously, but the equivalence of SES personnel and general officers is not just an unfounded claim on his part. (The undersecretary may well be his immediate superior.) I'm just pointing out the official equivalence. Of course I would hope that his behavior is not typical of SES officials.
