COLLATERAL DAMAGE - HOW THE TOP BRASS
© 2014 MilitaryCorruption.com
By MAJ Glenn MacDonald
A mother's sobs in the silence cut deeper than the sharpest knife.
I know. It's not the first such phone call I've had in the 14 years I've edited this web site. You feel the pain and anguish, too. Every time. And it takes a heavy toll.
The parents and loved ones of those falsely accused and destroyed by a politically-correct, unfeeling, unjust "Green Machine" also endure the sleepless nights and sense of betrayal that result from what is called "collateral damage."
NOT EVERYONE ACCUSED IS GUILTY
It's estimated that fully ten percent of the charges made by female accusers are bogus.
That should not detract from the vast majority of cases where offenses were committed. We have always campaigned for justice for women in the military. Those that have read our stories over the years on cases such as the murder cover-up of PFC Lavena Johnson can attest to the fact MilitaryCorruption.com does not turn a blind eye to crimes of this nature.
But who speaks up for those whose lives and futures are wiped out in the atmosphere of "they're all guilty?"
We do. And we will continue to do so, as long as God gives us the strength to continue the fight for truth and justice.
COWARDLY OFFICERS PLAY POLITICAL GAMES
The Army I served as a soldier, NCO, company and field grade officer, over a span of 33 years, is no more.
In some ways, that's a good thing But the present condition of "cover-your-ass-at-all-costs" means craven senior officers will sacrifice the innocent every time as long as their position is secure.
One of the first things I learned as a "Mustang" officer, up from the ranks, was "take care of your troops and they will take care of you."
But some of the brass hats we've written about on these pages have betrayed those they should have looked out for.
THE "PERFUMED PRINCE" REMAINS UNPUNISHED
GEN David Petraeus, the ultimate "perfumed prince," had a sexual affair with a married female officer and both of them, more than a year later, have escaped any sort of punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
Paula Broadwell, a major at the time of the adulterous relationship, should have been busted back to captain. As for the four-star general, he deserved to be reduced one grade in rank.
It is especially sickening that this flag officer was later revealed to have lied to a reporter for McClatchy Newspapers in regard to his role in trying to shit-can a Medal of Honor recommendation for CPT Will Swenson.
In my honest opinion, Petraeus isn't fit to shine Swenson's jump boots, or for that matter, mine.
THE STENCH AT WEST POINT
West Point was afflicted in recent years with an odious general who installed his civilian whore in a top-level position. This arrogant, obnoxious woman wore her protector's stars on her shoulders and terrorized everyone under her.
While we're on the subject of the USMA, remember our stories about COL Mike "NO COMBAT" Colpo, the chairborne Ranger? This West Point graduate managed to avoid not only combat duty, but any overseas service as well, during 30 years of active duty.
No wonder one of our readers awarded him a new ribbon to add to his paltry collection of merit badges. The decoration was YELLOW with RED on each end, to denote the blood of others, who, unlike Colpo, were willing to go into harm's way.
DO THE CRIME - PAY THE TIME
With "leaders" like these, no wonder morale is low and getting lower.
If the Pentagon would show some backbone and declare that anyone, regardless of gender, who makes a false accusation and is caught doing so, be court-martialed, perhaps some of the "railroad jobs" would come to a screeching halt.
Sadly, that's too late for the victims of bogus charges. The shame of this is there for all to see. Who's going to do something about it?
