Copyright © 2011 MilitaryCorruption.com

In what has to be a huge black eye for the Army, yet another West Point graduate (Class of 1986) finds himself in hot water, and this time the public affairs office and the Pentagon can't cover it up.

You will recall we here at MilitaryCorruption.com reported in late March that hard-charging Col. James Johnson, then-commander of the famed 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, had been suddenly relieved of command. We also told you the "announcement" was made late in the day on Friday to try and hold down media coverage of what now looks to be one of the most embarrassing scandals to hit the Green Machine in years.

MilitaryCorruption.com has seen papers filed in federal court in New York that are so salacious and filled with fantastic charges that one might think it were a script for a made-for-tv movie. But this isn't "fiction" folks. All this stuff has a large element of truth.

BIZARRE CAST OF CHARACTERS IN TRUE-LIFE DRAMA

The "characters" are the obnoxious, shaven-headed, beady-eyed colonel - a West Point graduate and son of a general - who has an affair with an Iraqi woman, spends some $27,000 on "gifts" for his mistress - and has his wife kicked off the military base they lived on in Italy.

In an incredible example of hubris, Col. Johnson has filed for divorce from his wife, claiming she was "a disruptive influence" at the base in Vicenzia; "acted like she was a colonel herself" and taught military spouses about "masturbation." Kristina Johnson was ordered removed as senior advisor to the 173rd's Family Readiness Group by her hubby of 23 years.

Accused of kidnapping their 16 year-old son (who now stays at his maternal grandparent's home in upstate New York) and being "rude to military spouses" - we thought wearing your husband's rank and being a screaming shrew were "perks" most wives of military colonels and generals enjoyed - Kristina has filed for divorce herself.

Court papers show that she tried to get her husband to break off the relationship with the Iraqi girlfriend, but Col. Johnson refused to do so. Kristina claimed she found numerous erotic e-mails between the senior Army commander and his whore. In the documents, Mrs. Johnson said she agreed to delete the incriminating e-mail messages if her husband would stop seeing his young gal pal. He agreed, but soon went back to contacting his lover.

Mrs. Johnson took her son to the States and Col. Johnson went into court, citing the Hague Convention, charging his wife with forcing the underage boy to go back to the USA. That case was thrown out in February. The divorce actions in each case, however, are ongoing.

COLONEL ACTED LIKE HE "ABOVE THE LAW"

Col. Johnson is hardly one to be a self-righteous prig. His feigned revulsion at wife teaching other military spouses about "masturbation," is hilarious in view of his documented infidelities and brazen behavior.

In our initial story on Col Johnson, we suggested he put in his (retirement) papers and quietly slink away. Now that we are up to speed on just what he did to get himself in so much trouble, we feel the only way the Army can begin to regain confidence from it's enlisted men and women is to court-martial this out-of-control officer as soon as possible.

We are not saying Johnson's Iraqi girlfriend is a security risk, but he has shown exceedingly bad judgment all around. Let's hope that when he is convicted, it will send a message that high-ranking officers in the Army are at least some times, accountable for the crimes they commit. We know in the Air Force, "stars" are like free passes to stay out of jail.
