In the famous motion picture THE CAINE MUTINY, a crazed Capt. Queeg rolled marbles in his hand as he lied through his teeth, blaming his crew for all the trouble HE caused aboard his WWII ship. Now we have a repeat of that bizarre scene, with "Horrible" Holly Graf's high-powered, "take-no-prisoners," defense attorney Charles Gittins trying to turn the tables on the crew of the cruiser USS Cowpens.
At a Board of Inquiry held at the Navy Yard in Washington this morning, Gittins portrayed "the most hated woman in the Navy" into something of a saint. To hear Gittins tell it, poor Holly was resented because she was "direct and harsh with the men." In a statement worthy of Dr. Goebbels himself, Gittins said with a straight face that Graf "inherited the worst ship on the waterfront" and through her brilliant leadership "whipped it into the best in the Pacific Fleet."
The only thing Gittins failed to say is, we should all just go home now and let Holly join her "big sister" Robin in the ranks of female Navy flag officers. Why, she's just "misunderstood." All that stuff about her physically assaulting several officers, including one from the Royal Navy (see "related stories box" below) when Graf skippered the destroyer Winston Churchill, well that doesn't count. Graf should be an admiral, yeah, that's the ticket.
We wonder what the sailors on the Cowpens at this moment think when they read this latest development? They are "in harm's way" off the coast of Korea and could be in mortal combat in a matter of days. What will THIS grandstand play by the SCREAMER and her legal "top gun" do to morale aboard ship? Please let us know, guys. E-mail us your reaction ASAP. Thanks.
Ace reporter and award-winning author Susan Katz Keating has fought shoulder-to-shoulder with us at MilitaryCorruption.com to get this story out. She can see through the "BS" like a laser beam and you won't be fed "the official line" from her, like in other publications. Please click on www.SusanKatzKeating.com for the latest news, as this gutsy gal is going to try and cover the proceedings on Wednesday. Will the PAO-types bar the door? Will the MSM remain largely silent, fearful of feminist disfavor?
They ought to realize it is people like "Horrible Holly Graf" who set back women's rights and play into the stereotype of the "man-hating bull dyke," out to castrate and "get even" with evil men. To protect and coddle this out-of-control shrew would be a disservice to the Navy and the nation. She should be judged on what she has done, and after the Board weighs her many instances of egregious misconduct, be busted back to two stripe lieutenant and shown the door.
Someone like her doesn't belong in our Navy.
