One would think "the female Captain Bligh" would have cleaned up her act after being relieved of command of a cruiser at sea earlier this year. But not "Horrible Holly Graf." From numerous accounts, she has been "obnoxious and difficult" ever since graduation from the Naval Academy some 25 years ago. But to continue her arrogant and imperious ways, when it would do her a lot of good to establish a clean record at the Naval Surface Warfare Center at Dalghren, Va., that seems to have escaped her consideration.

MilitaryCorruption.com has learned a senior officer over Graf at Dalghren has weighed in on her rude and self-centered ways. Holly just can't seem to learn, she is her own worst enemy.

Graf considers herself a "victim," oblivious to all the chaos she has left in her wake. It's all about HER. The coddling and favoritism that enabled her to reach the point she is at, has blinded her to the damage she has done to the image of women in the Navy. The last thing the many outstanding female officers who serve today need is a "woman" who feeds into the stereotype of the fierce, "man-hating lesbian."

We may never know what has caused Graf to be so cruel and contentious. Perhaps it relates back to her childhood. Maybe she has a problem with her retired Navy captain father. But, to put her in command of a guided-missile cruiser after her physical assault on a British naval officer on the USS Winston Churchill, that should have set off warning bells in the Pentagon this creature should not be allowed anywhere near nuclear weapons. When commanders go crazy, people can die.

This isn't the movie CAINE MUTINY. Graf isn't rolling ball-bearings in her hand or mumbling about a can of strawberries. But her tactic of blaming the COWPENS and crew for her troubles - "worst ship on the waterfront" - is both high-stakes and probably counter-productive.

CHARLES GITTINS THROWS A "HAIL-MARY" PASS

She has the toughest, "slash-and-burn" defense attorney in the business, and if anyone can save Graf's hash, it is Charles Gittins. But we think his strategy here will fail. We would have used the BI-POLAR defense. Say Graf "can't help" her spiteful nature and foul-mouthed tirades. Urge her to apologize, even if it's obvious she doesn't mean it. Throw her on the board's mercy. If she would just take SOME responsibility for all the trouble she has caused, despite the ruined careers of others, the millions of dollars in damage to warships her lack of seamanship caused, then maybe, just maybe, the BOI would allow her to retire "in grade."

This is unacceptable to the rest of us common folk who have to live by the rules and regulations. But it puts an embarrassing incident on the "political correctness" back-burner. The last thing the Navy needs is more bad publicity. So far, other than MilitaryCorruption.com and SusanKatzKeating.com, only the lap-dog NAVY TIMES is covering the proceedings. The nasty Ann Gearon of the AP must have other things to do this week. Likewise the Washington POST, CNN and other major television networks are all AWOL from the public hearing. STARS AND STRIPES has a Washington Bureau and reporters they could send over to the Navy Yard in a matter of minutes. But instead, they use NAVY TIMES stories in their paper and totally hand over the version of events to them.

You deserve better, dear reader, and we will make sure you get it.
