FETISH" GENERAL FIRED
FOR FONDLING WOMENS' FEET
USAF BRIG. GEN. RICHARD S. HASSAN
UNDER INVESTIGATION BY THE I.G.
FEMALE SUBORDINATE FILED
COMPLAINT ABOUT "FOOT-RUBBING"
AND "FRATERNIZATION" - ANOTHER
EMBARRASSMENT FOR AIR FORCE
BRASS IN WAKE OF FISCUS SCANDAL
One has to wonder what is really behind
the humiliation of an Air Force brigadier general, accused by female
workers of "rubbing" their feet! Could it be that a "foot
fetish" has the brass hats in such a dither? Or is someone out
to get Gen. Richard S. Hassan - until recently, director of
the Air Force Senior Leadership Management Office?
With all the serious "sexual harassment" that has occurred
and still goes on in the Air Force, one would think firing a flag officer
because of an accusation he fondled women's feet would be pretty
low on the "priority" totem pole. But in this age of extreme
political correctness - and we aren't carrying any water for Gen. Hassan
here - even looking at a female subordinate the wrong way could
cost a boss his career.
There's plenty of instances of ranking officers "hitting on"
female workers and not taking "No!" for an answer. Why not
better utilize time and resources investigating those creeps instead?
We know why, don't we? The only top officers ever punished are the ones
who've become a public liability or fall "out of favor" with
the Air Force brass. The ones who get away with all that are protected
by their highly-placed pals. Nothing ever happens to them.
FINGERED BY FEMALE WORKER AS
Only a fiction writer could come up with this one.
The general who is to decide Hassan's fate is named Lance Lord. He's
head of the USAF Space Command.
Sources say that Hassan was "fingered" by a female worker
who told investigators the one-star general had also rubbed the tootsies
of several other women over the past four or five years.
Omigod! Call out the FBI and Homeland Security! We gotta lock this guy
up, right now!
It's possible that Hassan might have had some sort of "sexual relations"
with the complaining women, but if that were the case, we'd
have heard about it by now.
Out of 15 or 20 women interviewed about the general, only three or four
actually had specific complaints.
According to the ever-improving AIR FORCE TIMES,
some of the women whose feet were rubbed "told IG investigators
they didn't like it, and others said they let Hassan do it again.
One or two said they were concerned that if they didn't go along with
it, they would be snubbed by him at work." [Italics, ours.]
"Snubbed?" How awful! Let's activate the National Guard! The
CIA should look into this. How about a Congressional investigation?
Let's forego any court-martial and just string Hassan up on a pole,
hanging a "pervert" sign around his neck. Yeah, that's the
One of the "victims" confessed to investigators that she found
the "foot rubbing" to be sensual, and thus didn't
want it to continue. We guess that's because she didn't want to risk
getting further aroused. Poor girl.
MORE ABSURDITY FROM THE AIR
How ludicrous! Our troops in Iraq are being blown
to bits, women are being sexually assaulted at the Air Force Academy
- a majority of the cases there are legitimate - yet the Air Force is
making itself look ridiculous on the altar of "political correctness"
and "cover-your-ass at any cost."
Gee, maybe some of the women who worked for Hassan will claim PTSD (Post
Traumatic Stress Disorder) as a result of the foot "ministrations"
they received. Then they can leave the Air Force and collect a fat VA
pension check. After all, such an "ordeal" should be worth
a few hundred thousand bucks to these "traumatized" young
women, right? Maybe they can score a book or movie deal, too! How about:
"My Feet Were Fondled by the Foot Fetish General"?
What we can't figure out is how that nasty man Hassan was able
to tackle these gals and grab their feet and "rub" them if
the women didn't consent? Maybe he did it while they weren't looking.
At least he didn't suck on their toes. A source within the investigation
tells us Hassan liked females who wore dark-colored hose. "Bare
feet" apparently wasn't his style.
THE FISCUS FIASCO REMEMBERED
The last Air Force flag officer found to be acting
"inappropriately" with his female subordinates was none other
than chief JAG, former Maj. Gen. Thomas J. Fiscus.
This arrogant, obnoxious, little man didn't mind sending others
to jail, but when it came to his many sexual affairs with both
willing and unwilling partners - none of whom, incidentally, were punished
for all the "bennies" and promotions they received from the
illicit liaisons - he thought that behavior was just fine,
for a two-star general. Rank does have its privileges, you
Even obstructing justice and impeding an investigation is OK, as long
as you can get away with it. But Fiscus, once exposed in the media,
"stunk" too much in the nostrils of the top brass. They had
to do something about him! So, finally, the Air Force actually
"disciplined" a general officer. Well. kind of. With a wrist
While a lesser military member would have been busted, lost his pension
and maybe done time in Leavenworth, this general's "buddies"
took good care of one of their own. Fiscus had to retire as a colonel,
two notches down the "pecking order," but he got to avoid
jail and collect a fat pension.
"Different spanks for different ranks" is still the norm in
today's heavily-politicized Air Force.
