The colonel is a crude and sometimes lewd drunk, but he’s not a rapist. And he doesn’t deserve to be “shot, hung until dead, castrated” etc. like some of our more bloodthirsty readers have e-mailed us in the last 24 hours. More on that later in this news story.
Col. Dan Wilson faced enough charges to practically bury him under the ground of the Leavenworth DB, if he’d been found guilty, but at the end of a two-week court-martial at Camp Lejeune, N.C., even with immense political pressure to destroy him, the jury cleared Wilson of all charges but one.
If they had come back with a clean bill, all hell would have broken loose, and the Marine Corps knew that. At the same time, the credibility of his accusers, especially one grown female who made a big mistake by taking the witness stand where she contradicted and undercut her own case, caused the jury to punish Wilson without sending him to prison for the rest of his life.
WAITING FOR SENTENCE TO BE HANDED DOWN
That could still happen, of course. We are writing this dispatch at press time and will follow up with the full sentencing results, which should be decided by the end of the day Sunday (Sept. 10).
The one count the colonel was found “guilty” of was “touching” the genitalia of a little girl. Significantly, the court-martial panel found there was no “penetration” by the senior officer’s finger, despite his accusers shouting RAPE!
As far as we can tell, Col. Wilson was an outstanding Marine for nearly 40 years. That he is an alcoholic now, whose self-destruct mechanism caused him to say and do stupid things while on a six-month assignment to Australia, was obviously taken into account.
Wilson’s appallingly poor judgement, conduct unbecoming an officer, and failure to control his mouth while drinking, should result in appropriate punishment. While he could receive up to 15 years in prison and loss of his retirement pension – and that itself wouldn’t satisfy the witch hunters in Washington – a fair penalty would be to bust the colonel back one grade and force him out of the Corps with a reduced retirement check.
PETRAEUS IS THE REAL “P.O.S.”
Our angry and outspoken readers this morning called Wilson “a disgusting POS, a disgrace to the Corps.” etc., but we ask them to check our archives and read up on real pieces of excrement like disgraced retired GEN David Petraeus and former Army Chief of Staff, GEN Martin Dempsey, who several times pulled strings to save the ass of his flag officer pals when they got in serious trouble.
Petraeus, the ultimate “perfumed prince,” banged his fellow West Point grad, MAJ Paula Broadwell in Kabul while at the same time shit-canning a Medal of Honor recommendation for CPT Will Swenson, then lying about his role in that shameful act, when he denied any knowledge of the “mislaid” documents during an interview with a civilian news correspondent.
An inebriated 56 year-old colonel holds a little girl in his lap and she allegedly tells her mommy she’s been molested, while four-star phony Petraeus betrays a far better man than he. Who is the real POS here?
