"OPEN LETTER" IN WASHINGTON POST BACKING
© 2015 MilitaryCorruption.com
Captain Louis Renault famously said in the film CASABLANCA "Round up the usual suspects."
Those words might as well have been spoken by Secretary of State John Kerry, who got 36 mostly partisan Democrats to sign an "open letter" published in the Washington POST that backed President Barack Obama's flawed Iran nuclear "deal."
A careful check of names of some of the retired admirals, as well as army, air force and marine corps general officers, reveals more than a few have checkered backgrounds.
DISGRACED CARTWRIGHT AND DESPISED McPEAK
For example, at the top of the list is alleged "womanizer" and surly "drunk," Marine Gen. James "Hoss" Cartwright, whose military career came to a screeching halt when he got in trouble with women and booze while on an official trip to Russia.
Then there's perhaps the most despised flag officer in U.S. Air Force history - Merrill "Tony" McPeak. We couldn't print (they are so vitriolic) many of the e-mails we got about him when we first wrote about this political prostitute several years ago.
The imperious general, who cruelly ended the careers of many subordinate officers and enjoyed it, was once a George Bush cheerleader. Then, when he got in a snit with the Republicans, all of a sudden he started singing the praises of John Kerry. He's been a reliable Democrat stooge ever since.
KENNEDY, NASH, AND SESTAK, TOO
Another signer is retired GEN. Claudia Kennedy. Remember her? She liked to say she was Hillary Clinton's "favorite general." The mannish, unmarried three-star ended Army GEN. Larry Smith's career when she sniffed that he had "groped" and "kissed" her. He denied it, but was forced to retire.
GEN William, L. Nash got his tail in a crack during the time he was military commander in Bosnia-Herzegovina. It seems the married two-star got a little too friendly with a female subordinate officer (some sources say she got pregnant and then had an abortion) and was quietly brought back to the States where he was hidden out at Carlisle Barracks until he could be quietly retired in rank.
No political list would be complete without the signature of arrogant and abrasive REAR ADM Joe Sestak. A down-the-line Democrat, Sestak angered so many members of his own party when he upset longtime Sen. Arlen Spector in a Pennsylvania primary, they got even by voting for his right-wing Republican opponent Pat Toomey that November.
How about disgraced Army GEN Stephen Xenakis? His biggest headlines came when he was exposed for having an affair with his sick wife's female nurse. That conduct caused him to be relieved and retired back in 1997.
LIST NOT EXACTLY AN "HONOR ROLL"
We could go on and on about others on the list, but those we have cited above, gives you a good idea where most are coming from.
Probably not many people will be moved by such a list. The public is cynical these days.
At least the folks who cooked up this letter knew enough not to include a couple of characters whose inclusion on the list would have been counter-productive - disgraced "perfumed prince" and retired GEN David Petraeus, and failed presidential candidate Wesley Clark.
