GENERAL WHO RUBBED FEMALE'S
It never would have come to this if Brig. Gen. Richard Hassan, former director of the Air Force Senior Leadership Management Office in Washingon, hadn't made at least one powerful enemy among the top brass.
After all, the "crimes" Hassan was accused of were not sexual in nature and no harm, physical or psychological, came to any of his "victims." The general, not unlike some fellow flag officers, had a weird fetish, but his was relatively harmless. He liked to rub women's feet. Maybe, like other high-ranking bosses with a wire or two loose upstairs, he'd rather have kissed their tootsies instead, but nonetheless, his eccentric whim cost him his career.
Charged with "inappropriate relationships" with female subordinates, Hassan opted to accept nonjudicial punishment - an Article 15 - and quietly retire. He will get a letter of reprimand and be ordered to pay a small fine.
Hassan is a regular Boy Scout compared to former Maj. Gen. Thomas J. Fiscus, the former chief JAG officer in the Air Force, who was busted two ranks earlier this year and given a fine but no jail time. No general officer has ever been taken to court martial for any offense in the 60-odd year history of the USAF. Fiscus, faced with a mountain of evidence, confessed to a few of the many sexual relationships he had with women under him, some of which were willing to "play the game" and then gain "immunity" from prosecution for testifying against their former "boyfriend" and benefactor.
MilitaryCorruption.com thinks letting these females get off scot free, especially the officers who bragged of getting promotions and power the illicit relationships gave them over the lower ranks, is very destructive to unit morale. But in the "politically correct" Air Force of today, one gender is apparently superior to the other and most women in uniform realize the so-called "leadership" is frightened of having any confrontation with females in blue.
Sources at the Pentagon say a high-ranking officer who wanted to grease the skids under Hassan seized upon information that the one-star was being a bad boy to humiliate and remove him from his position. It worked.
It's hard to feel sorry for Hassan. He has to be really "dumb" to open himself up to blackmail and being forced out of the service. But he did behave in a non-professional manner. The offense may seem petty indeed compared to all the other stuff going on every day. But the difference was Hassan didn't have a "protector" with stars on his shoulders who would make sure the OSI "looked the other way." The general will have plenty of time to ponder that probelm as he becomes a civilian again for the first time in many years.
