"What does it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" reads the verse from the New Testament in the book of Matthew (16:26).
Yes, we know that old adage about "speak no ill of the dead," but we have an idea, from where the portly admiral is right now, he'd have a hard time reaching out to us in retribution. After all, we're doing something the "mainstream media" failed to do in their fawning and sanitized obituaries.
MilitaryCorruption.com is reminding you of the evil this once-respected military leader did later in his life. How he played a key role in the forced Anthrax shot $CAM that caused untold misery for tens of thousands of service members. And those are the ones who didn't die or become ill from the effects of the controversial shots. They simply lost their careers, and some went to prison.
How many military families were affected by Crowe's involvement in one of the most craven schemes ever perpetrated on our armed forces? We have a file cabinet full of letters and e-mails from those who were forced out of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps because they chose to follow their conscience. This web site published some 20 articles, beginning with GREED AND GUINEA PIGS in September of 2000, to chronicle the full effect of this disastrous and demoralizing policy.
ENDORSING A "DRAFT-DODGER" AND THE POLITICAL
"PAY-OFF" THAT FOLLOWED
Prior to 2000, William Crowe - other than his becoming a "political whore" for Bill Clinton in the 1992 election - [more about that below] - had a distinguished career. True, he was more of a desk officer than combat leader, and when he was "in harm's way," he got in messes like the mistaken shoot-down of a Iranian civilian airliner by the USS Vincennes in 1988 - but the politically savvy officer - a conservative Republican most of his life - charmed President Ronald Reagan and won the job of chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff..
By 1992, Crowe had ambitions to become an ambassador, preferably to Great Britain. He went to then President George Bush and made his wishes known. "That'll be $100,000, thank you very much," said GW's father. But the top admiral was in no mood to pony up the cash.
At the time, Bill Clinton's infamous "I loathe the military" letter to his local draft board had surfaced and the governor from Arkansas, already rocked by revelations he'd had a long affair with Jennifer Flowers, was in danger of falling just short of defeating the incumbent President. Ross Perot drained off lots of conservative and Republican votes, and as a result, "Bubba" won with just 43% of the total when election day rolled around.
Some political observers say it was Admiral Crowe's unexpected and enthusiastic "endorsement" of Clinton that helped "the man from Hope" score enough military ballots to win in key states. He might be a draft-dodger and long-haired, pot-smoking hippie in his Oxford University "daze," but Clinton looked a lot better to military voters after he'd gained the admiral's support.
What wasn't reported at the time, was Crowe had exacted a price for his blessing - that same appointment to the Court of St. James that he coveted and failed to receive from Republican Bush. Only for Crowe, this time he wasn't required to part with any loot. Clinton was true to his word. Crowe indeed got the job, and suddenly became a shill for the Democrats after he switched sides for his own personal benefit.
It was what came after Crowe left the post of ambassador that still makes us shake our head in amazement. We don't have to tell you how much money was already pouring into Crowe's coffers, what with his huge retirement check from the Navy, and his political deals since he joined the Democrats.
THE FORCED ANTHRAX SHOT "$CAM" AND ALL THE
PAIN AND MISERY THAT RESULTED
As we wrote seven years ago, "Al Capone would have been envious" of the plan to buy into the only facility in the USA licensed to produce so-called Anthrax "vaccine." Crowe knew that his partners in crime, Bill Clinton and then-Secretary of Defense William Cohen, would cook up a way for the admiral to get very rich, very fast.
It was akin to a gangster taking over control of a state and ordering everyone - on pain of arrest and imprisonment - to drink his brand of beer, and only his. In that case, it would have been relatively harmless, but the dirty vaccine (the plant that manufactured it - Crowe had bought a "slice of the action" in anticipation of millions of federal dollars - caused Bioport of Lansing, Mich.) to be shut down several times for "unsanitary conditions."
When hundreds of military members came down sick and several died, the Administration refused to suspend the program until finally, for a period of time, a federal judge halted the forced anthrax shots. With all his money, why did Crowe have to participate in a scam that would cause such misery and pain for so many of our armed forces? Didn't the avaricious admiral realize we come into this world naked and we can't take a dime with us when we leave?
Yes, we are sure his family mourns his passing. Undoubtedly he was generous and loving towards them. But the evil Crowe did was not interred with his bones. It continues on to this day. It is a sad and shameful legacy that the establishment media failed to report.
As Paul Harvey would say: "Now you know the rest of the story."
