HE WAS SACRIFICED ON THE ALTAR OF POLITICAL
© 2017 MilitaryCorruption.com
We’ve seen some terrible miscarriages of justice in the 17 years we have been online, but this is one of the worst.
An outstanding officer, with 15 years service, five deployments, and two commands under his belt, Maj. Clarence Anderson has been railroaded into prison by a politically-correct Air Force, willing to betray and deny justice to one of their own in order to curry favor with grandstanding politicians who want every military male even accused of “sexual assault” locked up behind bars.
In this case, no evidence was produced other than the suspect testimony of a bitter ex-wife - at the time of court-martial - fighting her husband for full custody of their six year old daughter. Also, as we will reveal later in this investigative article, we suspect at least one witness was bribed to commit perjury during the trial.
Because of the character of this woman - or lack of same - we will not publish the name of this vengeful person nor even refer to the three-times married female by her initials. We will simply refer to her as “the accuser,” or T.A. Others we know would more readily call her “the liar.”
MAJOR’S ACCUSER HAS
Maj. Anderson, then-stationed at Holloman AFB in New Mexico, was court-martialed in 2015 on a number of specious charges, to include a fabrication he committed “sexual assault” on his wife. Incredibly, no evidence of this was proven, other than the claims of T.A., who had plenty of motive to lie and to send her estranged hubby to prison.
In fact, MilitaryCorruption.com has gotten our hands on a signed statement by someone we will give the identity “Mr. M,” where he admits having frequent sex with still married T.A. as much as two years before the woman’s divorce from Maj. Anderson was finalized.
Also, we possess a signed statement from this same individual in which he described the still- married-to-the-major adultress as follows: “(T.A.) is, in my opinion, not a truthful person. She has shown to me a pattern of accusations and manipulation in order to get whatever she wants . . . . she has accused me of stalking her, simply by being in the same grocery store parking lot by chance. Also, she has not allowed me to see my daughter, though I provide child support to her. This pattern of behavior leads me to believe she has made and continues to make false accusations.”
EX-WIFE TRIED TO PULL OFF UNETHICAL
If that wasn’t enough to seriously dent T.A.’s total lack of credibility, a MilitaryCorruption.com reporter has obtained a statement from New Mexico attorney Erinna Atkins. She was Maj. Anderson’s lawyer in his divorce proceedings with his vengeful then-wife the year before he was sent to prison.
“In February of 2014, I received a series of text messages from (T.A.’s) divorce attorney indicating that Mrs. Anderson would seriously consider resolving the criminal action (false charge made against Clarence) if Maj. Anderson would cease seeking custody of their minor child,” Atkins recalled.
“I am generally unfamiliar with courts-martial, but I did not believe I could ethically negotiate Mrs. Anderson’s participation in a criminal proceeding in exchange for custody of the young girl,” she said. “I advised my client I could not to participate in such a deal and advised him not to do so, either. I communicated to (T.A.’s) attorney that fact, and her flippant reply to me was: ‘Okay - I guess the court martial will be on. Talk to you later. Thanks.’”
As for T.A.’s criminal background, MCC has in our possession a document - a police report from Georgia - showing that the major’s former wife was charged with simple battery and cruelty to children when she pushed an ex-boyfriend carrying a small child down a flight of stairs, causing the child to be injured. Just the kind of person the Air Force would use to destroy the life and career of an honest and honorable officer. Yes, we meant that last line to be “sarcastic.” But it is sadly true.
ANDERSON HIGHLY RESPECTED BY PEERS
Let’s contrast T.A.’s background with former college football player Clarence Anderson. A highly-respected officer by all who served with him, he was coming up on a promotion to light colonel and only five years from reaching qualification for an active duty military retirement.
To best illustrate what others in high positions thinks of Anderson, we take the liberty of quoting from a letter written by the major’s former commander, Col. Harry H. Hungerford at McDill AFB Florida. It speaks for itself.
“Major Anderson served as my J4, Movements Division Chief and Operating Deputy Division Chief and his performance during that time was absolutely exceptional. He is an outstanding officer in every way. Allegations by his wife of domestic violence are, in my estimation, dubious at best. . . Maj. Anderson never displayed to anyone a temperament or demeanor consistent with a person I would think is capable of domestic violence.” the colonel said.
THE $100,000 WITNESS “PAY-OFF”
Now, dear reader, let us ask you a very simple question. If you knew that a witness for the prosecution of Maj. Anderson had been given (allegedly as a “gift”) $100,000 from T.A.’s wealthy momma, wouldn’t that raise an ethical red flag? It happened and was kept out of the trial. When defense counsel alerted military judge, Lt. Col. Marvin Tubbs, to this significant development, a post-trial hearing was held and Tubbs mindlessly blew off the obvious. He wrote the damaging revelation “would not probably produce a substantially more favorable result for the accused.”
Is he out of his mind? Or is the judge doing what he knows the Pentagon and Air Force want? And that is, to make sure demagogic politicians like a certain grandstanding female New York Senator won’t squawk.
Maybe they are counting on the “sensational” reporting of Air Force TIMES - that very-thin tabloid with much fewer ads than in years gone by, that has reached such a low point they only put out a newspaper twice a month instead of every week, as done from 1940 to 2016. We, at MilitaryCorruption.com don’t have any pals at the Pentagon, other than the courageous cadre of confidential informants who keep us appraised and up-to-date on waste, fraud and abuse, as well as a myriad of scandals and cover-ups.
MAJOR ANDERSON SPEAKS OUT
We know this is one of the longest articles we have published in years, however, we want to make sure you readers - we get up to four million hits a month worldwide - hear the eloquent words from a good and decent man who has never wavered in his faith in God or the proposition that in the end, he will finally receive justice which he has been so cruelly denied.
Here is what he has to say from his cell at the Miramar Consolidated Brig in California:
“I took the witness stand in my defense, not hiding behind my right to remain silent, because I am innocent . . . there was no physical evidence linking me to any of the charges I was prosecuted for and ultimately convicted of . . . I was the victim of a sensationalized pretrial article in the Air Force TIMES . . . military officials from Holloman AIr Force Base overreached and not only sought my prosecution, but a wrongful conviction . . . I remained in command nearly six months after my ex-spouse’s accusations at Holloman, proving military officials did not believe her claims. . .
“I’ve been put through hell ever since the Air Force TIMES produced an article on my case before my trial was over. My children have been ridiculed in school with taunts that their father is a rapist and kidnapper. Thanks, Jeff, Michelle and boy-wonder TIMES top editor Tony Lombardo. Are you proud of yourselves?
“At the conclusion of my court-martial, I had to endure seeing my children being dragged out of the courtroom still clinging to me, crying loudly in tears that their daddy was going to jail. I can never forget the stench from urine-soaked hallways of jails where I was held in solitary confinement, until I finally arrived at my present place of incarceration.
I’ve read the narrative of Fredrick Douglas being an American slave and now I know too well the feeling of being degraded, my feet and hands shackled in restraints as if I were nothing. I no longer have any desire to serve in the Air Force. I am not looking to be reinstated, I simply want to be released from prison and my name restored so I can again have custody of my kids who I have not seen since my conviction, and so that I can attend church services, school functions, and just be finally at peace.”
MAJ ANDERSON DESERVES A NEW TRIAL
If you are as outraged as we are at the despicable treatment given this African-American officer, a man of quiet dignity and extreme courage (he served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan), we urge you to immediately contact your Congressional representatives and tell them to make the Pentagon provide Maj. Anderson with a real trial, this time, a fair one, with all elements considered.
There is hope in the new Trump Administration. The commander-in-chief is a patriot, notwithstanding what his enemies may say about him. Barack Hussein Obama, AKA “Bathhouse Barry” Soweto [Google “Larry Sinclair” and you’ll see what we mean], had his chance to order justice be granted, but that $400,000-a-speech fraud failed, as he did in much of what he tried to pull off during the eight years we Americans suffered under his reign.
Don't let Maj. Clarence Anderson be forgotten. Churches, you should hold this man up in prayer to our Lord. Veterans and service-members, our brothers and sisters in the American Legion, DAV, VFW and AMVETS, disseminate this story as widely as possible. The pen is mightier than the sword. Now, let’s use it!
