NAVY PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICE ADMITS HUGE SNAFU
APOLOGIZES TO MILITARYCORRUPTION.COM AND
NAVY TIMES FOR FALSE INFORMATION PROVIDED
BOTH PUBLICATIONS - SPOKESPERSON NOW CLAIMS
LT CDR REBECCA DICKINSON WAS RETIRED AS LT 0-3

What are the odds on this? That over a space of several days, two separate Navy public affairs officers would provide first MilitaryCorruption.com, and then the NAVY TIMES, with not only erroneous information about the retirement of D.C. Madam prostitute Rebecca Dickinson "in grade" as a lieutenant commander, but take so long to acknowledge the "mistake." Was this a set-up, or just a huge SNAFU? We think it's more likely the latter.

Our inside sources had told us that Dickinson, who admitted in open court she serviced some 200 "clients" at $275 an hour while working at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, had cut a deal for "total immunity" from the Feds from any prosecution for her crimes. We were also told the Navy brass - in part intimidated by Dickinson's alleged threat to divulge the names of some of her senior Naval officer "johns" - had given her a special deal and let her retire at her present grade of 0-4. That would be in direct violation of long-standing regulations that prohibit an officer from going out at any rank other than the last one "satisfactorily" served in.

We never divulge sources here, but the mistake was made and admitted to us by Navy Lt. Cdr John Daniels (703) 687-5342. Incredibly, when NAVY TIMES inquired at that same office a few days later about the story on MilitaryCorruption.com, a female PAO also confirmed that Dickinson "retired in grade" as a lieutenant commander.

THE NAVY "APOLOGIZES" TO MILITARYCORRUPTION.COM FOR BIG SNAFU

Now, out of the blue, we get an "apology" phone call from Daniels saying it was all a big mistake. "We want to correct the record," the PAO sheepishly admitted. "We unfortunately gave you bad data. It was a human error," Daniels said.

"What about the female public affairs officer who gave this "bad data" to NAVY TIMES several days after we first broke the story when you confirmed our information? How could SHE have the facts wrong as well?" a MilitaryCorruption.com editor asked.

"I don't know," was the response.

Well, dear reader, we don't mean to be cynical, but we think the Pentagon should release the retirement order for Dickinson to prove that she actually went out the door at a lower grade. Her Social Security number and any other private info can be redacted from the document, but somehow we aren't all that trusting of what the Navy Public Affairs Office has to say these days.

One thing is for sure. We did what all responsible news organizations have to do to maintain credibility. We called officialdom and got confirmation of our report from a Navy News Desk flack. So did NAVY TIMES. And we both got stung.

WHILE THE NAVY SCREWS UP, THE AIR FORCE CONTINUES A "COVER-UP"

At least the Navy doesn't have as big a pile of dog "doo-doo", as the Air Force cover-up of the Maj. Jill Metzger case. That's the gal who claimed she was "kidnapped" in Kyrgyzstan in 2006 and later "escaped" from her "captors."

An OSI (Office of Special Investigations) officer who worked the case both there and in the United States told us she was lying and the fact the Air Force never awarded their pampered and protected pet - former two-time winner of the Air Force Marathon - any decoration for her "heroics," caused many to wonder what kind of top-level connections Metzger has.

We do know that she is presently on the TDRL (temporary disabled retired list); was awarded a lucrative 100% pension for PTSD "disability" but still somehow is able to compete in grueling events like the Air Force and Marine Corps Marathons.

Many of our readers, especially those genuinely disabled and wounded being treated at Walter Reed, want to know is she is "scamming" the system, and if so, who is letting her get away with it. When we tried to get an official statement from the Air Force Public Affairs Office at the Pentagon, all we got was insults and a run-around.

At least the Navy PAO's are friendlier, even if they do disseminate erroneous information.
