In the sixteen years we have been exposing corruption in the U.S. military, we've seen and reported on some very odious people. "Horrible Holly Graf" and retired Army COL Mike "NO COMBAT" Colpo (the chairborne ranger) are just two.
She got away with throttling two male officers and running a warship (destroyer) aground. A man-hating "sea witch" Graf was widely known as "the female Capt. Bligh." Our apologies to the HMS Bounty's cruel skipper, for associating his name with such a monster as her.
Colpo was the West Point ring-knocker (Class of 1978) and Infantry officer who managed to avoid not only combat in his 30 years on the Federal tit, but ANY duty at all overseas. For that, he was known as "NO COMBAT Colpo." It was an utter disgrace when this politician became chief of staff at USMA, while many more colonels, all holding the esteemed CIB, and most with at least one Purple Heart award, were passed over for him.
But now, we have a much worse individual to deal with. He is an Army JAG, MAJ Jacob Bashore, and his near-sociopathic conduct during the recent court-martial of MAJ Chris "Kit" Martin at Fort Campbell, Ky. - see Related Stories Box below for details - was so reprehensible, we can't recall seeing such an evil thing during the entire time MilitaryCorruption.com has been "fighting for the truth and exposing the corrupt."
THE PROSECUTOR WAS A "PERSECUTOR"
Bashore didn't just prosecute Martin, he persecuted him. When the killer-attorney failed at getting his prey convicted of sex abuse charges - the JAG's key witness was MAJ Martin's ex-wife, a convicted felon (how's that for credibility?) - he succeeded in hanging several specious misdemeanor charges on Kit, and cost the 30-year Army veteran and combat helicopter pilot his retirement pension and freedom.
While Martin was spared a life term behind bars at the Leavenworth DB, Bashore was able to celebrate tagging the honorable major with 90 days incarceration. That should get Bashore a big pile of brownie points from brutal GEN Mark "The Hammer" Stammer, a butt-kissing "politically correct" flag officer, who was out to destroy Martin from day one.
When Kit was hit with the phony sex abuse charges, he experienced a swarm of MP-CID storm troopers surrounding his vehicle on base and pointing drawn weapons at his head. Off to the side, stood a female JAG, her arms crossed and a smirk on her face. This, dear reader, is what the U.S. military has become under Barack Hussein Obama.
We are told Bashore's payoff will be a promotion to lieutenant colonel and appointment as military judge. God help anyone who faces him after that. To say hat he is arrogant and obnoxious already, is indeed an understatement.
IS THIS JAG A COMPLETE SOCIOPATH?
One of Martin's defense attorneys, Jamie Phillips, told reporters "This was the most despicable sentence closing argument I have ever heard a JAG prosecutor make. Bashore's disclosure of personal information about one of MAJ Martin's loved ones, was so outrageous (in violation of the 1974 Privacy Act), it caused everyone in the courtroom to gasp."
Bashore's behavior at conclusion of sentencing Saturday, caused lead defense attorney Tucker Richardson's jaw to drop and his blood pressure boil.
"I couldn't believe it.!" Richardson recalled. "Bashore approached me and actually offered to shake hands. This, right after he and his team pulled every trick in the book to try and send MAJ Martin to prison for the rest of his life. I had a few choice words for him before turning away."
We know what those words are, dear reader, but prefer to leave it to your imagination as to what was said. Even we, cannot repeat Richardson's justified outrage and indignation on these pages.
BASHORE TRIED TO GET A KILLER OFF
A leopard doesn't change his spots, so when our research team checked into Bashore's past, we found he once tried to get a stone-cold killer off after the radicalized Army sergeant murdered officers and wounded 14 fellow soldiers at a camp in Kuwait.
It was 2003, and SGT Hasan Akbar staged a vicious attack on American troops during which he shot the officers dead and tossed grenades into tents of sleeping GI's.
Bashore was a new JAG at the time, and, being on Akbar's court-martial defense team, had no problem arguing that his client was a just a poor, misunderstood victim of "discrimination." The attorney claimed the sergeant "committed violence" upon his fellow Americans "because when faced with the stress of war and fighting other Muslims, he psychologically suffered a breakdown."
Yeah, right. Akbar remains on death row at the DB to this day.
It seems Bashore has a faulty moral compass, or none at all. To him, the end justifies the means. What a shock it will be at The Final Judgment when he faces his maker. As soon as Bashore arrives in Hell, he can look up Adolph Eichmann, who sent many a Jew to the ovens. The Nazi officer will likely laugh and say: "Like you, I was just following orders."
