MARINE OFFICER REFUSES TO "FALL ON SWORD"
TO TAKE RAP IN IRAQ "KILLINGS" - LT ANDREW
GRAYSON MAINTAINS HIS HONOR AND INTEGRITY
"POLITICALLY-CORRECT" PROSECUTION TRIES
TO GET LIEUTENANT TO "ROLL OVER" AND SAVE
THEIR FLOUNDERING CASE - "THEY WANT ME TO
DISTORT THE TRUTH TO FIT THEIR END GOAL,"
GRAYSON SAYS - MARINE OFFICER REFUSES DEAL
Lt. Andrew Grayson isn't about to "roll over" and admit to something he didn't do in Iraq. No matter how much pressure or what kind of "deal" the Marine prosecutors (persecutors) bring against him in the alleged Hadithah "killings" that took place two years ago.
The 26 year-old combat vet said he'd been asked to "fall on my sword for the greater good of the Marine Corps. They (the prosecution) wanted me to distort the truth to fit their end goals," he told reporters.
Well, thank God Grayson refuses to be a scapegoat and go along with what the PC-correct prosecutors are trying to pull. The tough Marine lieutenant is not alone. We will be writing soon about Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani, as he too is being unjustly prosecuted for something for which he's not guilty.

CMDR THOMAS GRAVES REASSIGNED TO NEWPORT
NAVY YET TO ANNOUNCE COURT-MARTIAL DATE
We've never been fond of obnoxious and overbearing officers who abuse their authority, but we have a sneaking suspicion that Navy Cmdr. Thomas Graves may be getting "keelhauled" by lazy and resentful crew members of the USS Constitution, based in Boston harbor.
Top defense attorney Charles Gittins doesn't waste time on officers who deserve the boot.
Graves was relieved of command in May after allegedly "striking" a petty officer over a slip up on paperwork. The "blow" turned out to be less than a slap or roundhouse right. During the Article 32 hearing Sept. 6 and 7, a complaining sailor testified that Graves "swung his hand" (note the word "fist" was not used) into Yeoman 1st Class Robert Santiago's chest.

"I've been trying for almost a year now to get a 100% (disability) rating, and this (expletive-deleted) female major gets favored treatment and a PTSD payoff? It's a disgrace!" said the wounded Iraq War vet from his bed in a VA hospital.
"Maybe if my daddy was a retired colonel and I had OSI agents in the family, my paperwork might move a lot faster," the soldier complained. "Well, it just goes to show how far down the toilet the Air Force has gone."
We respect the genuinely disabled veteran's remarks, but in reality, it isn't the rank-and-file men and women in blue he should be bitter about. They know they have been lied to and disrespected. It's the gutless and perhaps "compromised" USAF top brass that deserve his contempt. They protected Maj. Jill Metzger from day one, despite her implausible story that rivals "The dog ate my homework" for reliability and truthfulness.

Staff Sgt. Leonard Schenk, 26, is also in trouble for making threats against a federal law enforcement officer in a bungled murder-for-hire plot hatched from his cell in the Escambia County Jail.
The thug like, tattooed creep, stupidly solicited harm for the cop via telephone, despite printed warnings that all phone calls in the lockup are recorded.

When Army Capt. Austin Key tried to shake down a civilian contractor in Iraq he got more than he bargained for. The crooked officer got his $50,000 payoff, but didn't suspect that his victim had already gone to the authorities, and a trap had been set.
This past July, according to an unsealed federal indictment, Key approached a U.S. civilian contractor who provides services and supplies to American forces and demanded $125,000 in order for the company to continue to do business with Uncle Sam.
Later, the corrupt captain lowered his price, to $50,000 in cash, for providing the contractor "advance information" on bidding and contracts that would give the civilian owner an unfair advantage over competing contractors.

A former Army paratrooper from Maine is wondering why his V.A. disability pension was suspended after he returned home from having a serious operation for throat cancer - a condition brought on by the soldier's exposure to atomic radiation back in the 1950's.
Jim Wallace, 74, of Pembroke, Maine says his 50% disability pension from the Veterans Administration was inexplicably suspended six years ago when he got back to his Washington County home from an operation at a Boston VA medical facility.
The surgery was critical, with Wallace diagnosed suffering from throat cancer.

If it weren't for a smart military defense attorney, an innocent soldier might have ended up in the Leavenworth DB on a phony "rape" charge.
But civilian lawyer William Cassara (1-800-288-3347) out-smarted the CID when he caught one of their agents in a flat-out lie and detected many inconsistencies in the claims of a young soldier's female accuser.
As a result, the GI was acquitted and spared a life-destroying prison sentence for something he didn't do. However, the unprofessional conduct by the CID unfortunately went unpunished.

It was a storybook career. Handsome and articulate Dartanian "Doc" Warr, up until recently the commander of the 551st Electronic Systems Wing (Electronic Systems Center) at Hanscom AFB in Massachusetts, was destined for "stars."
In fact, the Air Force Academy graduate had already been selected for brigadier general when a tip to the OSI brought his future crashing to the ground.
The 49 year-old African-American was accused of not only carrying on an affair with a female civilian employee at the base, but investigators said the colonel had committed "travel fraud," taking his wife on personal business and charging it to a government credit card.

"I WAS STRESSED OUT FROM SERVICING ALL THOSE

What if the roles and genders were reversed? Would the "politically-correct" Navy brass be so quick to court-martial a female faculty member at Annapolis if she was accused of secretly videotaping folks having sex at her private residence off academy grounds, while at the same time, letting a "male officer prostitute" who slept with possible security risks escape punishment? Of course not!
Once again, the U.S. Naval Academy is the scene of another "double-standard of justice."
Does anyone seriously think the pampered and protected lieutenant commander, who allegedly worked as a high-class whore for the "D.C. Madam," is going to do one day of jail time, much less be punished at all for making money on the side, servicing hundreds of "johns?" That's not "conduct unbecoming an officer," that's supplementing one's regular income. Yeah, that's the ticket! After all, we know that 0-4's are strapped for cash, what with the small amount of money they are paid, so what's wrong with a bit of "private enterprise?"

The grinning jackal and alleged "war criminal" returned to Capitol Hill for the first time since he was fired in disgrace last year, in order to testify in the Pat Tillman "friendly-fire" death, but the late Army Ranger's mother Mary was not impressed.
"I think he lied through his teeth," she told MilitaryCorruption.com, in a wide-ranging exclusive interview with America's fastest-growing military website. Donald Rumsfeld denied any role in muddying the waters regarding circumstances of the famous football player's demise.
"I would never engage in a cover-up," the arrogant and obnoxious former defense secretary testified before a Congressional committee. "I know the gentlemen sitting next to me [including boot-licker and retired Gen. Richard Myers, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff] are men of enormous integrity and would not participate in something like that. Neither would the White House."

It was one of the most baffling and frustrating mysteries in American criminal history. The strange case of who is responsible for the bizarre death of Air Force Col. Philip Shue on April 16, 2003 may at last be solved.
MilitaryCorruption.com has obtained a signed confession by a career criminal who claims he was paid $10,000 to kill the colonel two days before he died. We are currently checking out the veracity of this individual, who says he was hired to murder the Wilford Hall Medical Center chief psychologist. Copies of the document are being sent to the proper authorities but will not be shared with those we suspect had a hand in this cover-up.
Shue had publicly stated his life was in danger from a first wife who held a one million dollar life insurance policy on him. MCC later learned his wealthy widow, Tracy Shue, had twice as much money to gain - not counting a $250,000 SGLI payout, DIC, lump sum death gratuity and all the other "monies" available to the spouse of a high-ranking officer who dies on active duty.

Dick Cheny's Halliburton isn't the only entity getting rich off the war in Iraq. Army Maj. John Cockerham thought he had a sweet deal going for himself and his "high-maintenance" wife Melissa as long as the bribe and kickback money kept coming in. But the field-grade found out different when cops closed in and arrested them both in Texas.
The 41 year-old contracting and procurement officer for U.S. Army South, headquartered at Ft. Sam Houston, and sexy Melissa are both charged with bribe-taking, money laundering and conspiracy.
The dollar amounts are staggering. According to law enforcement sources, Cockerham became a millionaire ten times over from his crooked deals and anticipated further corrupt scams that would net him at least $5 million more.

"DOUBLE STANDARD OF JUSTICE" AS USUAL
You first read it here, months ago, that the female officer who "turned tricks" for the infamous "D.C. Madam" was an active duty Lt. commander at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. [See "related stories box" at end of this news bulletin.] The $275 an hour call girl, who worked at the academy between 2005 - 2006 - she has been transferred elsewhere since - has a lawyer, and sources say she's cut a deal with the Feds to testify against embattled Deborah Jeane Palfrey.
No word on whether or not the 0-4 will stay in the Navy, or even get promoted, but PAO Lt. Cindy Moore says: "No Navy investigation regarding this officer is taking place." Well isn't that just great? If a male prostitute and active duty officer had been nabbed in such a situation, why do we think he would already be in a jail cell at Leavenworth? Could it be the old "double-standard of justice," so recently seen in the U.S. Air Force [Maj. Jill Metzger cover-up and PTSD "disability" payoff]?
To make things even more interesting, it is said an Army TIMES editor was a "client" of the D.C. Madam. We wonder if any of his colleagues at Air Force TIMES are on that list? The numbers are being checked as you read these words. It did seem strange that Air Force TIMES would risk the wrath of it's readers - thousands of whom also see MilitaryCorruption.com each day - by so stubbornly parroting the "official line" in the Metzger mess. At least Stars and Stripes mentioned us, and they are owned and operated by Department of Defense. The Gannett-controlled and very "politically correct" TIMES didn't give us credit for any of the facts which we dug out before anyone else reported them.

What started out as a case of "favoritism" and "looking the other way" by top Air Force brass in the Maj. Jill Metzger cover-up has evolved into aiding and abetting the commission of a federal crime.
Accepting a dubious PTSD "disability" pension for so-called trauma resulting from the marathon runner's alleged "abduction and escape" from mysterious and more likely "mythical" captors in Kyrgyzstan last year, is a despicable act when we have genuinely wounded and disabled men and women returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
These less-privileged combat veterans, lacking Jill's high-level connections, will spend many years in pain and suffering, slowly navigating the V.A. system, fighting hard for every nickel and dime they can get from their lower disability ratings.

We're back to our regular schedule now, but will break in with new Metzger news at any time. Remember, we're independent, unafraid, and not "in bed" with the Pentagon public affairs office.]
There ought to be a special IQ test given to potential Navy disbursement officers. Especially in the wake of one of the most wacky stories we've seen yet in the military. And we know them all.
How a grown adult, with reasonable intelligence, could fall for one those Nigerian internet con jobs is hard to imagine. But that's just what brought down Lt. Milton Guy of the USS McClusky. Now he'll have two and a half years in the brig to think about what a "dummy" he is.
