It's a blue moon and then some when any Army flag officer gets punished for anything. But it appears BG Jeffrey Sinclair, former deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne, on deployment to Afghanistan, has stepped on his dick "big time."
We mean that literally.
The beady-eyed general has been charged with forcible sodomy, "inappropriate" relationships with women, consuming alcohol, viewing pornography while on deployment, and misuse of a travel card.
In other words, he's dead meat. The Pentagon has thrown the kitchen sink at him.
MOST GENERALS IMMUNE TO PUNISHMENT
Usually (see RSB story below) top brass get a wink and a nod from their flag officer buddies when they get in that kind of trouble. One-time chief JAG, Air Force Maj. Gen. Thomas J. Fiscus, had sex with two dozen women and got off with a slap-on-the-wrist.
Sinclair won't be so lucky. Next step for him is an Article 32 preliminary hearing at Ft. Bragg.
Obviously, he pissed off someone high enough up the food chain that they decided to hammer him right into the ground. "Forcible sodomy" is damn close to being RAPE, and soldiers go to the Leavenworth DB for that. However, we think pigs will fly in the sky before any general officer actually does hard time out there in Kansas.
Sinclair has been in the Army 27 years. A 1985 graduate of the University of West Virginia, the 50 year-old paratrooper looks like a creepy pervert, even in his official photos.
If he is actually brought before a court-martial, it should be quite a show. We hear there's a three-star who runs a high-profile Army institution back East who's under investigation for having an affair with a female subordinate. This married general, an obnoxious and abrasive punk, deserves to go down for the count, but probably will skate due to his political connections. More on him later,
[EDITOR'S NOTE: This guy Sinclair is no relation to the brigadier general mentioned above, but punch in the name "Larry Sinclair" on Google and read up on him and the commander-in-chief before you cast your ballot this year. Some very good advice, we think.]
