ON THE FIRING LINE VOL. 1, NO. 2


HELLO, MR. AND MS. SERVICE-MEMBER AND ALL THE SHIPS AT SEA AND PLANES IN THE AIR . . . LET’S GO TO PRESS. FLASH!!!

When we ran our “lead item” in ON THE FIRING LINE, No. 1, we had no idea of the enormous response we’d get. But a so-called “suicide,” that might end up being something else, has a way of peaking interest, especially in the lower ranks. Most grunts don’t mind watching a general get in BIG trouble. And the “trouble” headed the way of this retired “brass hat,” may be the worst possible kind!

It never fails. Those going up the ranks and reaching the lofty position of general or admiral have a tendency to “dump” on those below. Not ALL top brass. We have known some great ones. Like the much-loved and highly-respected Gen. Peter E. Genovese Jr., who passed away earlier this year. But men like him are the exception to the rule. No, “stepping on fingers and operating with impunity,” is SOP for more than a few arrogant “flag officers.”

But even the most perfect “crime” can eventually come unraveled. For most Americans in uniform – those in grade 0-6 and below – even an unfounded charge of “fraternization” and “adultery” is enough to end a career. It can destroy you, unless you have some “high-level protection” from within the senior ranks. But a potential charge of “conspiracy” and “murder,” now THAT is enough to send any of the top brass scurrying for cover.

We are not prepared to call this particular “suicide” of a general’s wife a homicide. Not yet. But, the more INTEL we gather from people in the know, the worse this case stinks. There’s just too many loose ends and suspicious actions for it to fit the Army’s “official version.”

Like, it really takes “brass balls” for a general to include his alleged girlfriend, a subordinate agent whose career he greatly assisted, among the senior CID agents called to his house, off-post (before the civilian cops arrived), to “help” him “investigate” the death of his wife. And then, it borders on being reckless, to show up some time later at the same alleged “galpal’s” promotion party to pin on her new rank.

Reckless, since it was widely discussed within his former command - both before and after the unfortunate demise of his spouse - that the general was having an affair with this particular agent. Oh, she was asked (for the record, of course) what her “relationship” was with the general and she replied they were “only good friends.” Well, we guess that ends that! “Nothing to see here, folks, let’s move right along.”

From her picture, she’s no beauty. But she’s certainly ambitious. However, don’t ask a certain “bigwig,” initials J.M., to recommend her for the promotion “fast-track.” Word is, she got in a big mess while on a security mission for him some years back. The much-respected senior Army official was not amused by what happened, and this “lucky” (so far, at least) female “survived” to become a warrant officer and move on to bigger and better things.

We don’t think she can afford to get too “huffy” about our knowledge of her past. After all, if the civilian authorities re-open this case and the CID can’t control it, who knows what questions might be asked and where it could lead?
More to come on this in our next issue, especially about WHO destroyed the alleged “suicide” weapon, on what general’s “orders,” and why. Stay tuned.

NO MORE WAR STORIES: While we’re on the topic of violent death in the military, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the MP who’s accused of killing a Vietnam vet outside a strip club in Lawton, Okla.

Seems mean-tempered SPC Luke Sinclair didn’t appreciate some “war stories” being told by the late James Robbins, so in a fit of rage, the military cop pumped four bullets into the unfortunate Nam vet.

Sinclair later told investigators he was annoyed when Robbins approached him and three buddies outside the club and started to tell stories about his time in Vietnam. The 55 year-old murder victim was rebuffed when he invited Sinclair to a nearby bar for a few free drinks.

The 22 year-old MP didn’t “waste” Robbins right there in front of his pals. He waited until the man drove out of the parking lot. Sinclair, according to police, then pulled out in front of Robbin’s van, blocking the vehicle, calmly got out, walked up to the driver’s side and opened fire.

Sinclair has been charged with first-degree murder. Which reinforces our contention – apologies ahead of time to all our CI’s who are also honest MP’s, CID agents, OSI or NCIS cops – that before ANYONE can put on a gun and a badge in the U.S. military, they must undergo careful screening. To “weed out” the psychos and those prone to extreme violence.
Are you reading this, “Mad Dog?” You worthless punk!

HEADS UP, ALASKA GUARD: Your days of jerking around and harassing a certain outstanding light colonel are OVER! He knows where all the skeletons are buried, and now we do too. If you want to see your scandals exposed all over MilitaryCorruption.com and the heat come down on you from above, keep it up, guys. But be warned. You will only get yourselves in “Dutch” if you don’t back-off.

PENTAGON “FAT-CATS” BUSTED: Why are we not surprised? A former Pentagon agency director and his top aide have been charged with extortion and bribery. The two Clinton Administration appointees and “holdovers” solicited payoffs, partied with prostitutes and even accepted expensive wrist watches in exchange for government contracts.

So what else is new?

Seriously, RATS like these are all too common in a Pentagon still trying to shake off the effects of eight years under the “draft-dodger” and his legions of suck-up sycophants.

The Feds say Robert Neal Jr., who headed up the Defense Department’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization, and Francis Jones, his faithful “assistant,” were both “in on the take.”

According to court documents, the two men directed contractors to “make payments” to favored companies in order to keep lucrative federal contacts coming.

Money would then be laundered through a Liechtenstein bank, investigators revealed.

WHAT A DISGRACE: If there’s anybody in America who should be respected and honored, it is those members of the military who have received this nation’s highest award for valor, the Congressional Medal of Honor.

So why has the Veterans Administration been giving Mike Clausen - Vietnam vet and 100% disabled from Agent Orange poisoning - such a hard time when he tried to obtain glucometer strips to check his blood sugar.

Here’s what Mike - who served nearly 3 years in Vietnam - told us at MilitaryCorruption.com: “The VA informed me that in order to get the strips I must attend a class once every three months - which, even if I lived in Baton Rouge or New Orleans, which I don't - is not the proper way to treat any veteran, especially a combat veteran.”

Mike explains that no matter which VA facility he goes to, the appointments are always in the morning, “so driving in New Orleans or Baton Rouge, with the interstates jammed like parking lots, makes me late - unless I start out from home at 0500. If they can do this to a MOH recipient, what are they doing to the other vets? Can’t people use common sense?”

When Mike told his doctor what the problem was, he was curtly informed that “that’s the rules.”

MilitaryCorruption.com salutes all the GOOD people at VA – we are in the care of some – BUT there are also jerks and bureaucrats there. So wise up, people! And start treating this hero with a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T! OK? God bless you, Mike. All the Nam vets, this writer included, stand with you. “Semper Fi.”
