MILITARYCORRUPTION'S
HALL OF SHAME
GEN. GARY NORTH, USAF

© 2011 MilitaryCorruption.com

When we did our first MilitaryCorruption.com HALL OF FAME item a few weeks back - deceased retired Air Force Capt. Francis Gary Powers - we'd already completed much of the research into the first inductee into our HALL OF SHAME. That was fortunate, since serious illness sidelined and almost put out of action permanently our editor-in-chief, a retired Army Reserve major and 100% disabled (combat-related) multi-tour Vietnam veteran. He is slowly regaining strength to the point where those who had hoped MCC might go under, have been greatly disappointed.

In the eleven years this web site has been online - and we have survived DOS attacks and ham-handed anti-First Amendment censorship - we have never had so many negative e-mails and INTEL reports on one general officer as we have about four-star Gen. Gary North of the U.S. Air Force.

Nick-named by some, the BLOAT-FACED BULLY, North is both the most despised and feared top general in the military today.

Active-duty Air Force personnel have expressed concern that North has over-shadowed his "puppet," weak chief-of-staff Gen. Norton Schwartz, and could be the next fat-cat flag officer to sit in the COS chair.

NORTH DISREGARDS REPORT
OF OWN INVESTIGATING OFFICER

Some of that concern goes back to a particularly disgraceful chapter in North's past, when - as a three-star general - he brutally destroyed the careers of two USAF light colonels in Afghanistan despite an investigating officer's report clearing both men of all wrongdoing.

Please go to our related stories box at the end of this article for the details, but to see what we mean here, read how we reported this incident several years ago:

"Now the proverbial 800 lb. gorilla weighs more than a ton," said one captain at Eglin AFB, who still resents North's back-stabbing of two of his light colonels in Afghanistan when they got in a fist fight with a punk from Blackwater, the Bush administration's "private army."

Cleared of all wrong-doing by a minority female investigating officer on the ground there, the colonels were nevertheless sacrificed and their careers destroyed by North, who has never been known to avoid dropping to his knees and kissing a "behind," as long as it belonged to a powerful politician or brass hat who could do the general some good.

Lt. Cols. Gary Brown and Chris Hall will never forget the injustice they suffered at the hands of North, and we should always remember the courage of Lt. Col. Leslea Pickle, who dared tell the truth and not "cave in" to political expediency. She resisted the temptation to tailor her findings to what the general wanted. And if this brave officer had not been a minority female, her career would have ended up on the rocks along with Brown and Hall. As arrogant as North is, he's not stupid.

NORTH PROTECTS METZGER

Perhaps the most egregious thing North has done, is become enabler and protector for Maj. (soon-to-be lt. colonel) Jill Metzger.

In doing that, he has slapped in the face all Air Force personnel who deserve to be treated equally under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Without his reputation for brutality, many doubt Metzger, AKA Mayo, would have gotten away with one of the biggest scandals in USAF history.

Most of you reading this site - you won't find any objective reporting on Jill in the establishment Air Force TIMES - will recall how the pampered and protected Metzger, two-time winner of the Air Force Marathon, was allegedly "abducted" in Kyrgyzstan back in 2006. The scrawny, 95 pound female claimed she "overpowered" her armed kidnappers and ran 30 or 40 miles barefoot (most of the time naked) to safety. Yeah, and the dog ate our homework.

Many - including two OSI agents who investigated the case and talked to MCC - think she's a liar - but that doesn't matter when you have a four-star general making sure no harm comes to you - like a court-martial or even an Article 32 hearing.

"100% DISABLED" JILL RUNS IN MARATHONS

Genuinely disabled veterans were outraged when the Air Force put lucky Jill on the TDRL (Temporary Disabled Retired List) and saw her arrogantly run in the 2008 Air Force, Marine Corps and other smaller marathons. It was the first time in our memory that someone drawing 100% "disability" pay got away with something as blatant as that.

But word from inside the Air Force is, as long as North is in power, Metzger is "untouchable."

The question arises as to why? Why was North there at Manas AFB the night Jill decided to return from her three-day absence?

Why did he try and bribe gate guards with his "coin" and told them not to relate to anyone in the media what they had just seen? Why hasn't the politically-correct Air Force awarded Jill a high decoration for her derring-do? Because it never happened? Last we knew, making a false official statement and going AWOL for an officer were serious offences.

NOBODY DARES TAKE NORTH ON

At present, there is no one in Air Force blue who would dare to put North on the spot and make him answer questions as to why Metzger/Mayo (now back on active duty - her 100% "disability" a thing of the past) is above the law. North has done "back-flips" to protect a controversial 0-4 personnel officer.

We would like to think that Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), who shot down the tanker deal and butted heads with top Air Force brass before, would look into this, but he has not.

The brutal legacy of bully-boy Gary North goes on. And that is why he is the first entry into MilitaryCorruption.com's HALL OF SHAME.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: We already have a thick file on North, but if you, dear reader, have been harmed by this man or know of past misdeeds by him that we have not written about yet, please contact us at once. Thank you.]
