PENTAGON BUZZING WITH RUMORS

DEFENSE SECRETARY ASHTON CARTER"Ash is taking a dangerous risk," a deep-cover Pentagon source tells us. "He hasn't handled this well [the sudden, unexplained firing of senior military advisor LT GEN Ron Lewis] at all. He should be listening to the PAO. His failure to get out in front of this fast - with some kind of official story - is liable to blow up in his face."

The senior military officer told a MilitaryCorruption.com reporter "It's been nine days since the announcement was made. Ash can't let this go on much longer. It's a dangerous risk. If he does continue to stonewall, and it's as bad as we hear, his job could be in jeopardy."

Rumors are buzzing throughout the Pentagon, where Lewis has his share of enemies. Some of the speculation is ugly, and if true, could result in a sensational court-martial and the "fast-track general" spending the next 30 years behind bars at the Leavenworth DB.

DELAY LED TO FOUR DEAD MARINES

Complicating matters for the West Point graduate is our EXCLUSIVE story (see related story box below) that then-COL Lewis dithered and was indecisive in Afghanistan when he commanded the 101st Airborne's 159th Combat Aviation Brigade.

A now-retired Army combat medic charges the senior officer dilly-dallied while four critically-wounded Marines "bled to death" because the DUSTOFF chopper they were loaded into couldn't depart until Lewis gave the OK. And, according to the angry medic, everyone on his staff was so intimidated by him, no one dared to disturb Lewis during his "shower time" to get the word to lift off.

"The bastard was a micro-manager," our NCO source recalled.

WE GO ALL-OUT TO GET THE TRUTH

Rest assured, dear reader, MCC and it's far-flung network of confidential informants from every U.S. military installation in CONUS and overseas - we've built up this network during our 16 years online - are digging hard 24/7 to break down the "wall of silence" thrown up by the desperate defense secretary.

Quite frankly, he is undermining his own position by announcing his SMA's firing for "misconduct" and then pissing off the mainstream media, as well as us, the premiere military investigative web site in the world.

Lewis may well be the dirt bag some of his enemies describe, but it is grossly unfair to him and any legal proceedings in his future to have him twist in the wind like this. Whatever he did to cause his mentor to immediately dump him - a female subordinate charging sexual assault and/or attempted rape is one of the most prevalent rumors now at the puzzle palace - it needs to see daylight now.
