A not so funny thing just happened to the odious GEN David Huntoon, quietly cruising his way toward retirement at West Point in a couple of months.

The cover-up and stone wall his Pentagon buddies built up around an embarrassing I.G. investigation of the three-star general has come undone. It's now been confirmed in the "mainstream media."

No less than the Washington POST reported that at least one allegation against Huntoon had been "substantiated."

The Army (to date) has not released the paperwork, and may not until after the general has been safely retired on full pay and his fat pension.

REGS SHOULD APPLY TO GENERALS
AS WELL AS TO LOWER RANKS

A long-controversial (see related stories box below and our OPEN LETTER to Huntoon) flag officer, he is closing out 40 years "sucking on the federal tit," and regulations read that if you do four decades of service in the military, you get 100% of your paycheck for retirement.

But wait! There's a pesky AR that states that an officer can only retire in the last grade "satisfactorily served in."

The POST carefully reported that the I.G. told them at least one charge had been "substantiated" against the lieutenant general.

OMG! Could someone actually be LYING here? Who do you think it is? Is the Pope Catholic?

WHAT'S "HONORABLE" ABOUT HUNTOON?

"Damage control" at the Pentagon got their lap dogs at Army TIMES to "muddy the waters" (an old PAO trick to obscure the real issue) by printing rumors of Huntoon having an "improper relationship" with a certain highly-placed civilian female at West Point as false and "unsubstantiated." A Pentagon "spokesperson" declared the I.G. report "cleared" Huntoon of that alleged bad behavior. Spinmeister Wright declared the general had performed "40 years of honorable and distinguished service." What a crock!

How about the allegation that WAS found to be substantiated? Doesn't that blot Huntoon's record and undercut his need to have performed "satisfactorily" in the grade of lieutenant general in order to retire as a three-star?

You bet it does.

But if the Pentagon can blow enough smoke around Huntoon, and stall the Washington POST on releasing the paperwork until after the general retires, he's home free! And once again the taxpayers will be screwed, forking over full pay to another (thank you, COL Hackworth) "perfumed prince."

WHY AFRICAN-AMERICAN GEN. "KIP" WARD REDUCED
IN GRADE, WHILE FAIR-HAIRED BOY HUNTOON IS NOT?

Isn't it interesting that the Obama Administration can OK African-American LT GEN WIlliam "Kip" Ward being busted down one grade for his sins, while the toxic stench created by Huntoon and his spoiled and out-of-control diva at West Point has seriously damaged morale at the USMA.

Is this any example of equal treatment and "racial justice?" BAM ought to get involved.

The Black Caucus should also look into this double-standard. And let Secretary Hagel know of their disapproval.

ANOTHER "TOXIC" LEADER

We are well aware that Huntoon is famous for sucking up to those in power, but should this butt-kissing brass hat haul down a bigger retirement check than he deserves? Hell, no!

If it was up to us, he never would have made colonel. Not every West Point "ring-knocker" is worthy of general's stars, you know, especially one that lets his "lady friend" go around wearing his rank on her shoulders.

Army Chief of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, and our new (political payoff) Secretary of Defense, Republicrat Chuck Hagel have been making headlines recently pontificating about the evils of sexual harassment and "toxic" leaders.

They might be more believable if they pulled the trigger on Huntoon and respected Army regulations regarding what is a "satisfactory" period in rank, or not.

Huntoon hasn't met the standard. He should be reduced in grade to major general and sent packing. He won't be missed, at least by many at West Point - faculty as well as cadets - who have suffered in silence under his imperious reign.
