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.
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
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.
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.
"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.
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.
