UP! DID TOP AIR FORCE
© 2004 – MilitaryCorruption.com
Air Force brass, led by embattled Secretary James “Bullfrog” Roche, are hoping a sex scandal that could make the Air Force Academy troubles of last year seem like a “sideshow” in comparison, won’t explode into headlines anytime soon, MilitaryCorruption.com has learned.
“It has all the makings of a huge embarrassment, not just to the Air Force, but to one of America’s top spy agencies,” said an informed source. “It involves illicit sex, a big cover-up, possible “blackmail” of a three-star general, and the promotion of an officer that – if she’d been a man – might have instead resulted in a prison sentence at Leavenworth.
A “PROMOTION” INSTEAD OF PUNISHMENT
“Not only did this officer retain her top-level security clearance, but she incredibly got “promoted” to major, despite photographs of her committing various sex acts, including sodomy – a serious violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. These color photos were posted on the Internet by her estranged husband, a former Air Force officer,” the well-placed source said.
We are told the spouse successfully sued his wife for divorce. But the now-retired officer is incredulous, sources say, because his young, attractive, former wife has not only escaped any discipline, she’s even been promoted.
“The general she allegedly was screwing is married himself and looks like Yoda, not at all the kind who could get a woman like that without having high rank,” said one Air Force observer.
“The word is, she put the pressure on him to protect her when her ex-hubby sent letters to the Air Force demanding an IG investigation. Not only did the general save his girlfriend’s career, he got her promoted! How that happened, and why her security clearance wasn’t touched, is a question for Roche to answer. But he’ll duck it, you can be sure of that!”
“BULLFROG” ROCHE SHOULD BE FIRED
Well, we at MilitaryCorruption.com say James “Bullfrog” Roche should have his feet held to the fire. We know he can’t be canned while the election campaign is ongoing, but bets are being taken now in Air Force circles, that once Bush is re-elected, he will tell Rumsfeld to “get rid of” the controversial and trouble-prone Air Force secretary.
In today’s age of so-called “zero tolerance” of sex offenses in the Air Force, one would hope that an officer who engaged in adultery, fraternization, conduct unbecoming an officer, and other offenses, would be cashiered instead of promoted. Especially when they hold such a sensitive security clearance and have nude pix of themselves committing varied sex acts up on the Internet.
“If that was a male officer, he’d be court-martialed in a heartbeat,” said one field-grade at McDill AFB in Florida. “But she’s in the driver’s seat, and she knows it. I’d be arrogant too, if I were her”
MORE THAN ONE “BOYFRIEND” FOR HER
Our investigators report that the balding general “Captain Amerika” was said to be sleeping with is not the only “boyfriend” she’s had in the past couple years.
“There’s a warrant officer she was seeing while they were stationed in Bosnia,” said one informed source. “And there’s been another lover since then.”
The ex-husband was recently ordered by a Texas court to take down the explicit photos of “Captain Amerika” doing her “Monica Lewinsky imitation” - among other bedroom antics - but we hear an offshore server is now enabling Internet users to get a fresh look at the most powerful and protected female major in U.S. Air Force history.
WE WANT BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY
It saddens us at MilitaryCorruption.com to hear of such “goings-on,” and we hope that the reports are somehow untrue. At any rate, we invite “Captain (now Major) Amerika” to write her side of the story for us and we will gladly post it in this space as soon as possible.
Even though we have no use for old “Bullfrog,” we also – in the interest of fairness – offer him equal time to respond to this latest scandal to mar his already troubled tenure. And the general, well, we know that he won’t want to see his name in print, if he can help it. Flag officers are usually impervious to the rules and regulations that govern lower ranks. But in this case, even the Machiavellian “Rummie” might be forced to take appropriate disciplinary action.
Of course, if we had our druthers, Rumsfeld would have been fired himself long ago! The Pentagon needs a thorough housecleaning, and the defense secretary deserves to be first to go!
Kerry has promised to fire him, but that’s typical political “blarney” by one of the most inept, two-faced, unreliable phonies ever to run for President. The Massachusetts senator and self-proclaimed “war hero” richly deserves the beating he is going to receive on November 2nd. We Vietnam vets have been waiting a long time for him. As the old saying goes: “Paybacks are hell!”
