Fighting for the truth . . . exposing the corrupt


ON THE FIRING LINE VOL. 1, NO. 3


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

We know you’ve all been waiting for our third installment in what may be one of the most sensational murder cover-ups in Army history. But investigators – unless they are “held back on a leash” like the honest CID agents (not the general’s “cronies” or “mistress”) who originally looked into this case – need TIME to “connect all the dots.” So do OTHER law enforcement agencies. CIVILIAN ones – NOT controlled or coached by the Army brass. And thus, here comes the first BOMBSHELL in the case of the “so-called” suicide of a general’s wife.

A certain three-letter agency, ALL you boys and girls would instantly recognize, has now gotten involved in looking into what REALLY went on in July 2000 at a certain former top military cop’s home. That’s all we can say for now, but it can’t be “good news” for the fellow “nick-named” HEINRICH HIMMLER by his former agents. As well as two of his fellow “flag officers, one now retired, and the other still in command. THEY need to be really worried.

After the New Year, we will be helping civilian investigators looking in specific directions. But in the meantime, would a certain general be willing to take an independent polygraph test on what actually happened that night in Virginia? Off-post. And answer some embarrassing questions as to WHY he would be so eager to have the alleged “suicide” weapon – a 9mm. we learned he purchased just one month before his wife’s death – DESTROYED at the Army Crime Lab by a particular “buddy” who now is the subject of a separate investigation himself?

From a DEEP COVER source, one of many we have, we’re told: “Command influence was all over this one. CID brass went to extreme lengths to obtain the weapon from the local PD so that it could be destroyed prior to being processed for prints. In fact, on the Evidence Custody Document, DA Form 4137, the weapon was taken from (the general) after he received it back from the local PD. The reason block said: ‘obtained for destruction’ instead of ‘evaluation for evidence.’” Does something SMELL here? Yes.

More in this unraveling case is coming. Such as the mysterious “bruise on the back of the head” that allegedly occurred when the victim “fell” a short distance off a cot to the floor. Or could the injury have been administered by a blunt object BEFORE the fatal shot was fired?

The general can help investigators by answering these and other important questions, IF he takes an independent polygraph. We’re not accusing him of anything – yet. But his actions sure “seem” suspicious. Maybe even the alleged “mistress” might think twice about staying silent, and tell what SHE knows. But better hurry, girl. Like right NOW! The RATS, even female ones, all “jump” when the ship starts to sink. And this one is listing badly to port.

Be sure to read our two previous articles on this case to get the big picture. Even Hollywood has expressed an interest. Remember John Travolta in THE GENERAL’S DAUGHTER? That flick didn’t make the Pentagon PAO’s very happy. This one will turn CID on its head. But at least the honest agents – and we know you are out there – will see a much-needed “house-cleaning.” Or would another term be a “blood-bath” of ruined careers and prison fatigues for the ‘cover-up” artists? Those who think they are “above the law” are about to get a rude awakening. STAY TUNED.

CORRUPTION AT ROBBINS AFB: One of our CI’s tells us there are people on Robbins AFB “playing fast and loose” breaking the rules with some contracts and contractors. “By doing so, they are violating the rights of civil service and military personnel and undermining security regulations,” the source says.

Another Robbins whistleblower complains that some of the contractors are “being paid for work they didn’t do,” and some of the female contractors are allegedly hired and kept around as “little more than eye candy for horny old male supervisors.” We are told that “these women don’t produce any value-added work” and what “work” they DO “perform,” isn’t in the contract.

NAVY “BLUES” AT CORONADO – BRASS HAT REASSIGNED: It will be a bleak holiday season for Cmdr. Michael Meyer, former director of Naval Leader Training Unit at this California installation. The veteran officer has been reassigned in the wake of an IG probe involving “harassment” allegations. Sources say the allegations involve the training unit’s staff, NOT students.

This isn’t the first time that Meyers has been in trouble. Back in 2001, an IG investigation looked into complaints the commander “acted in an unprofessional military manner” while on duty status. The Navy admits “administrative action” was taken against Meyer then, but no explanation why he didn’t get the boot right away.

Meyers could be the victim of unfair charges, so we always are open to hearing from defense attorneys or the commander himself. How about it? Let’s hear the other side of the story.

CHECK THESE FOLKS OUT: One of the most important web sites that we link to here at MilitaryCorruption.com is the good folks at POGO (Project On Government Oversight). They are “right on the ball,” most of the time.

Led by the indomitable Beth Daley and her troops at the watchdog agency, POGO strikes fear into the heart of evil-doers in the military almost as much as MCC!

POGO’s latest revelation is about the two workers at Los Alamos National Laboratories who were fired after exposing credit and purchase order fraud and well as security problems.

“All signs indicate that leaders at Los Alamos were motivated in the firing by a desire to silence these and other individuals who are uncovering widespread corruption,” says Danielle Brian, Executive Director of the Project On Government Oversight.

What WE say is: WHY aren’t these two HONEST individuals – Glenn Walp and Steve Doran - being commended and promoted for showing such integrity? Or is it the “same old, same old.” Cover-up the corruption and shoot the messenger. It’s about time that STOPPED! We know you are reading this, senators. Now DO something about it!

THE PERVERT AND THE MARINES: Did you all read our LEAD story on the North Carolina pervert who made videos of his “steamy encounters” with buff young Marines? Seems he got the “jarheads” drunk or dopey before he “did his thing.”

Well, that weirdo isn’t the only one who likes Marine dress blues. Or Marines OUT of their “dress blues.” In California, a man who’s been convicted of getting three Camp Pendleton Marines drunk and sexually assaulting them, now turns out to be a real “predator.”

Investigators say 47 year-old Amito Columna, a former Navy man, held several “parties” at his San Diego condo where he “enticed” the young Marines with promises of booze and women. He knew THAT would get the attention of the red-blooded “macho-men.” But instead, the Marines were rendered temporarily unconscious and Columna, not the promised “babes,” had his way with them. That’s NOT a story you’d want to have to tell your buddies, “Gunny,” much less the captain, when you get back to camp.

GROUP CALLS FOR RUMSFELD RESIGNATION: You’ve got to hand it to “Rummy,” the feel-good, “oh so likeable” new Secretary of Defense under President George W. Bush. Compared to who he replaced, the “hen-pecked” William Cohen (who never served a day in uniform – he was too busy studying Latin Classics in college while the rest of us fought in Vietnam), Rumsfeld looks like “Mr. Clean.”

BUT, the tarnish has already begun to show. Ramming through the FORCED Anthrax shots - when everyone with an IQ above 10 knows that $CAM was started by the bloated old Admiral William Crowe, Cohen, and his boss, Bill (“I loathe the military”) Clinton – is not a confidence builder. Is it BUI$NE$$ AS USUAL? Lots of “bucks to be made” for Bioport in a Michigan Republican congressman’s district.

The American Gulf War Veterans Association (see our LINKS list) headed by former Air Force flight nurse, Capt. Joyce Riley, has called for Rumsfeld’s resignation.

“In response to questioning by Sen. Robert C. Byrd, Rumsfeld denied any knowledge that the United States had shipped biological weapons to Iraq during the 1980’s. Rumsfeld was addressing the Armed Service Committee when he stated that he “ . . . had no knowledge of any such shipments and doubted they ever occurred.”

Riley says there is no disputing the evidence that the U.S. provided bacteria and viruses as evidenced by Senate Report 103-900, “United States Dual-Use Exports to Iraq and Their Impact on the Health of The Persian Gulf War Veterans,” dated May 25, 1994, chaired by then-Sen. Donald Riegle of the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. This senate report was easily available to all senators and listed among other items, Bacillus Anthracis (anthrax) Clostridium botulinum, and West Nile Fever Virus as pathogens that were shipped to Iraq in the 1980's with the full knowledge of the Department of Commerce and the CDC.

“There is no question that the Secretary of Defense must be informed and up-to-date with information about a potential military enemy and his offensive capabilities. Mr. Rumsfeld’s statements demonstrate that this is clearly not the case.
“If our Secretary of Defense is actually unaware of the sales of biological materials to a country with which we are about to go to war, or if he is in denial over the fact that these sales occurred, then AGWVA believes that he represents a clear and present danger to the lives of our military, our country, and the American people, and should be considered a serious threat to the national security. It is for this reason that the AGWVA calls for his resignation and removal from office.”

[While the editors of MilitaryCorruption.com don’t go that far, demanding resignation, we DO think that Rumsfeld has some explaining to do, and soon! If he actually didn’t know these facts stated above, he deserves a “dunce cap” or worse. Cohen may have been an unmitigated disaster as defense chief, but we deserve better than this after eight years of the “draft-dodger” Clinton.]

MISSING COMPUTERS FROM PACIFIC FLEET: No, we don’t mean to “beat up” on the NAVY this issue, but WHY is it that the Pacific Fleet’s warships and submarines were missing nearly 600 computers as of late July (including at least 14 known to have handled classified data,”) REUTERS reports.

The startling figures come from an internal Navy report that the “brass hats” at Pearl Harbor sought to conceal.
“A release of this information could negatively impact national security,” wrote Rear Adm. Jonathan Greenert, the fleet deputy commander in chief. His remarks were included in an appendix to the report.

Could it be that the good admiral is engaging in that age-old practice of DAMAGE-CONTROL, hiding behind the bugaboo of “national security?” Isn’t it better that the facts there was a major screw-up come to light so the American people can know something is being DONE about it? After all, aren’t we more security-conscious now in the wake of “9-11?”
