COMMANDER OF U.S. ARMY GARRISON IN JAPAN
SUSPENDED - COL ERIC TILLEY LATEST RANKING
OFFICER IN TROUBLE - ACTION FOLLOWS RECENT
SUSPENSION OF GEN MICHAEL HARRISON AS
COMMANDER OF U.S. ARMY JAPAN - CAMP ZAMA
FLAK SAYS SUSPENSIONS "UNRELATED" - THAT'S
ALL WE NEED TO KNOW IT IS CONNECTED

First it was MAJ GEN Michael Harrison, commander of the U.S. Army Japan, getting suspended amid whispers he "looked the other way" when one of his senior officer buddies got in a jam over the alleged sexual assault of a Japanese civilian worker at Camp Zama.

Now another ranking officer has been suspended. COL Eric Tilley, commander of U.S. Army Garrison, Japan, has also been suspended "pending completion of an official investigation."

In other words, the bird colonel has his tail caught in a big crack.

DOUBLESPEAK FROM AN ARMY FLAK

Army spokesperson told STARS & STRIPES that the shocking suspensions are "unrelated." Yeah, right.

That "spin" is not to believed. You can go to the bank on our view both actions are very much related. And more heads are set to roll.

This is not a good time to be under the microscope for alleged sexual misdeeds - or in the case of the two-star general, the possibility he indeed may have done nothing while one of his close pals sexually assaulted a Japanese female worker.

It's the talk of USARJ that this scandal has just gotten started. Get out your scorecard, gang. We hear more officers' heads are going down in the near future. Stay tuned to MilitaryCorruption.com.
