Fighting for the truth . . . exposing the corrupt
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 . . . LETS 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 wed 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 dont 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 generals wife a homicide. Not yet. But, the more INTEL we gather from people in the know, the worse this case stinks. Theres just too many loose ends and suspicious actions for it to fit the Armys 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 galpals 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, lets move right along.
From her picture, shes no beauty. But shes certainly ambitious. However, dont 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 dont 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 cant 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 generals orders, and why. Stay tuned.
NO MORE WAR STORIES: While were on the topic of violent death in the military, we would be remiss if we didnt mention the MP whos accused of killing a Vietnam vet outside a strip club in Lawton, Okla.
Seems mean-tempered SPC Luke Sinclair didnt 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 didnt 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 Robbins van, blocking the vehicle, calmly got out, walked up to the drivers side and opened fire.
Sinclair has been charged with first-degree
murder. Which reinforces our contention apologies ahead of time to all
our CIs who are also honest MPs, 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 dont 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 Departments 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 theres anybody in America who should be respected and honored, it is those members of the military who have received this nations 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.
Heres 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? Cant people use common sense?
When Mike told his doctor what the problem was, he was curtly informed that thats 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.
