SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP)(June 3, 1944) - Capt. Morrison J. Wilkinson, Army flier, tonight was convicted by an Army general court-martial on morals charges involving a number of women. He was sentenced to a dishonorable discharge and 30 years imprisonment at hard labor.
How times have changed! All chief AIr Force JAG, former Maj. Gen. Thomas J. Fiscus received from his fat-cat, brass hat pals after he got caught having sex with more than two dozen women was a "slap-on-the-wrist" and big retirement check, albeit at a lower grade. [Another high-ranking JAG, Col. Michael Murphy, is set to finally go on trial after it was discovered he was a phony, fake and fraud. It turns out the colonel had been disbarred as a lawyer from two states while passing judgment on others over the past 20 years]. All this has happened on Gen. T. Michael Moseley's watch and finally it may be catching up to him.
IT'S "LIFE IN PRISON WITHOUT POSSIBILITY OF PAROLE." A LANE COUNTY JURY IN EUGENE, OREGON HAS COME BACK WITH THAT SENTENCE AFTER SICKO FORMER NAVY CORPSMAN T. THOMAS SUPANCHICK WAS CONVICTED OF THE SHOTGUN SLAYING OF HIS ESTRANGED WIFE.
DURING THE TRIAL, HIS SLIMY LAWYER TRIED TO GET HIM OFF BY ATTACKING THE CHARACTER OF THE VICTIM AND CLAIMING HIS CLIENT SUFFERED FROM "PTSD." FORTUNATELY, THE JURORS DIDN'T BUY IT. SUPANCHICK IS GOING TO THE SLAMMER FOR GOOD.

Kelly Supanchick sat on the edge of her bed, trembling with fear. Her hands tied in front of her, she winced at the ravings of her estranged husband.
Former Navy corpsman T. Thomas Supanchick screamed like a lunatic as he waved a 12-gauge shotgun in the air. The hot-tempered punk had exploded in fury when his wife had told him she was expecting a baby.
Police who surrounded the Eugene, Ore. condo decided to break in after nearly four hours of fruitless attempts to negotiate a peaceful surrender.

Five years have passed since the strange death of Air Force Col. Philip Shue, yet the cold, hard facts remain the same.
What we do know for sure is it's absurd to call this officer's demise a "suicide" or even a "bizarre accident."
The colonel's body bore marks of mutilation. The "slicing" had been done with surgical skill. No reasonable person - that leaves out disgraced former Bexar County Medical Examiner Vincent DiMaio and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations - could honestly conclude the doctor did this to himself. It would be physically impossible.

When MilitaryCorruption.com first reported the "D.C. Madam" case last year, we told our readers a Navy lieutenant commander and instructor at the Naval Academy was moonlighting as a part-time prostitute. We said she was being protected and had been given a "slap-on-the-wrist" and a transfer to another duty station.
LTCDR Rebecca Dickinson surfaced April 10 as a witness against the prostitution ring's madam, Deborah Jeane Palfrey. The Navy officer gave testimony in a "sweetheart deal" cut with the Feds. According to terms of the agreement, nothing she says in Washington D.C. Federal Court can be used against her under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). In fact, the 38 year old "trickster" and mother of three, has been given "non-judicial punishment" and a letter of reprimand, a Navy spokesperson said.
The brass aren't commenting on whether or not the former hooker will be given retirement at a lower grade. Most of the sources we talked with figure she's very lucky not to have had to face court-martial and a stretch in the women's prison facility at Miramar, Calif. Of course there's the matter of names of some of Dickinson's military and politician "clients." We're sure the Pentagon prefers to put the whore 0-4 "out the door" as quickly as possible. Quid pro quo.

CPT Anthony Mastromarino gets to resign his commission and leave the Army "for the good of the service." No other explanation for the "kid-glove treatment" was offered by an Army spokesperson.
We wonder what kind of deal was cut? There's more to this than meets the eye.

For once, we can all agree on one thing. COL Scott Carlson appears to be a real lowlife.
The 52 year-old Army War College graduate hauls down some $120,000 a year as a fat cat colonel, yet he's so "cheap" he tried to cheat his way out of paying child support to a woman who isn't his wife. In fact, MilitaryCorruption.com has learned the female is a former soldier of Carlson's when he was a battalion commander at Fort Lee, Va. in the late 1990's.
Yes, Carlson has a wife and family. At least for now. Apparently the first they learned of him fathering a daughter out of wedlock was when the Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office in Pennsylvania pressed charges against the colonel and his fellow classmate, LTC Bruce Adkins.

LIED ABOUT "INAPPROPRIATE RELATIONSHIP"
WHILE PRESIDENTIAL AIDE SOME 20 YEARS AGO
It was a storybook career. Onetime "golden boy" John Stufflebeem could do no wrong. Nicknamed "Boomer" for his exploits on the gridiron as a punter with the Naval Academy football team, the popular and charismatic officer quickly climbed the rungs of rank until he reached the rarified air breathed only by vice admirals.
All that success came crashing down in flames after an anonymous letter writer accused Stufflebeem of sexual misconduct some 20 years ago.
In 1990, the broad-shouldered, blond-haired, lady-killer was military aide to President George H. W. Bush. That's when his accuser alleges he had what DOD investigators call an "inappropriate relationship" with an unidentified (so far) female.

The arrogant élitist from Oregon won't win many military votes for his current presidential candidate.
The widely-hated brasshat once headed up the Bob Dole military veteran effort in his home state. Four years later, McPeak was a cheerleader and chairman of the George Bush campaign in Oregon.

We've written about a female faculty member who moonlighted as a high-priced whore for the D.C. Madam [and gets a "slap-on-the-wrist" transfer to another assignment instead of a court-martial]; white girls who claim "rape" by African-American football players on the Academy team; a Catholic chaplain who molests male midshipmen; and a Navy doctor assigned to Annapolis who gets framed and sent to prison for allegedly taking "videos" of guests having sexual relations in his civilian quarters. He was said to have "violated" their privacy.

"What a huge victory this is for MilitaryCorruption.com!" enthused top Florida military defense attorney Ken David of Tallahassee after learning that our web site's public call for Gen. Harold Cross's ouster had been heeded by Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, commander of the state national guard.
"This is a classic example of power of the press," David declared. "Just a few short months ago, MCC called for Cross to be fired, and now, thanks in large part to your outstanding investigative articles, Gov. Barbour has taken your excellent advice. Congratulations!"
Two former officers who courageously went "on record" exposing crime and corruption in the Mississippi Guard, are especially pleased at the good news. Capt. Matt Hassloch, whom Ken David represented and we at MilitaryCorruption.com supported, successfully defeated an attempt to stick him with the bill for many thousands of dollars in "missing" Guard equipment.

It's early morning in Pembroke, Maine, a rural community some 170 miles from the nearest Veterans Administration hospital.
Seventy year-old Sandra Wallace helps her elderly husband Jim get in their 2000 Ford Windstar van for the tiring four-hour road trip to Togus. He's had a bad night and, riddled with cancer, is periodically bleeding from the rectum. His loving wife of fifty years hopes and prays they will make the trip without mishap.
This has been Maine's worst winter since the heavy snows of 1966 and the road is rough in places. Wallace, a former Army paratrooper, winces with pain whenever the vehicle hits a bump or pothole. He would rather be back home in bed but he has a scheduled appointment at V.A. for a minor medical procedure that his doctor insists must be performed at the hospital and not the much closer V.A. clinic in Calais, Me.

When a tree falls in the forest at midnight, no one hears a thing. That's been pretty much the game plan of Air Force brass who hope that the Maj. Jill Metzger cover-up is a "done deal." Gone and best forgotten.
Never mind that for three days in September 2006, the two-time Air Force Marathon winner's boyish mug was on every television screen and plastered across front pages of newspapers around the world.
Back then, speculation ran wild the super-achiever female officer had been "abducted" by sinister elements in the remote nation of Kyrgyzstan. Yellow ribbons were tied around trees in North Carolina and family members went on national TV to pray for Jill's safe return.

Erroneous information on a Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) document caused a local civilian newspaper to print a convicted sex predator and Navy command master chief petty officer got to retire with an "honorable discharge."
In fact, CMC Edward Scott received "other than honorable" papers and was forced out of the service. But the onetime top-ranking enlisted man at Kitsap Naval Station in Washington was allowed to go out the door as senior chief, a bust of one grade.
The charges on which he was convicted were very serious indeed. Scott was found guilty of attempted rape of a child and having immoral communications with a minor.

They've got their backs to the wall, both Bill and Hillary. For the first time in their long and checkered political career, there's a chance the Clinton machine will finally be defeated.
Barack Obama has been on a roll, and the "queen" who thought she was heading for a "coronation," is getting more and more desperate. MilitaryCorruption.com has been told by informed sources that a "gay smear" story, including allegations of drug use by an adult Obama, is bubbling just under the surface, while the "mainstream media," for the time being at least, looks the other way.
The Clinton campaign is said to be originator of the "dirty tricks" story, which comes out of Chicago, just days before the crucial Texas and Ohio primaries. If true, the allegations "are enough to sink Obama" says one political observer. It adds yet another bizarre twist to what has been a volatile and unpredictable political battle for the Democratic Presidential nomination.

He's 48 years old. A tough Marine "Mustang" officer who worked his way up the ranks from private to field grade officer over a span of nearly three decades. But now his plans for retirement with his young wife in Thailand are in ashes.
Maj. Carl Davis, who pleaded guilty to taking bribes from Thai contractors, is on his way to the brig. After completing his six month sentence, the officer - with an otherwise spotless record - will be drummed out of the Corps. No pension, no benefits, nothing.
Despite his admission he abused his position as a contracting officer for personal gain (100,000 baht or about $2300) and his cooperation in helping the NCIS build cases against other crooked officers, Davis got little in return.

"If anyone should be on trial here, it's the OSI," said a confidential informant at Sheppard AFB, Texas. He echoed the feelings of many of his fellow airmen who acknowledge Col Samuel Lofton III deserves punishment for financial wrongdoing, but not life imprisonment at Leavenworth on a false "rape" charge. "I wonder what those [expletive deleted]s got in exchange for their lies?"
Not lost on minority members at Sheppard is the fact that Col Lofton, an African-American, has stepped on toes in the past and never suffered fools gladly. "They were out to get him," said a female tech sergeant.

Col. Samuel Lofton III is accused of brutally raping at least one civilian female worker at Sheppard AFB and sexually assaulting several others. He's also facing 20 counts of larceny, an AWOL rap, and multiple counts of unbecoming an officer. If found guilty of all charges at court-martial, he faces life in prison at the Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks.
"He asked to keep my panty hose" after raping her, one of three women workers testified. "I said: What are you thinking - Monica Lewinsky?" the accuser testified. Then she said she "threw" the torn under garment right in the colonel's face.

The bird colonel is accused of multiple counts of rape, indecent assault, and larceny ("fraudulent use of a government travel card," according to one of our CI's at Sheppard AFB). Lofton also faces charges of dereliction of duty, AWOL, and conduct unbecoming an officer.

Of one thing, we can be sure. Maj. Mark Seldes, a flight surgeon stationed at Kunsan AFB in Korea, is indeed guilty of adultery. He acknowledged having sex with a female civilian co-worker, but strongly denies he ever "raped" the woman, as she claims.
The "victim," whose identity is being withheld by the Air Force, admits to a history of "consensual sex" with the accused officer and testified she "invited" Maj. Seldes into her private bedroom quarters before she took a sleeping pill.
The accuser even acknowledged the condom used in the "attack" was part of her private stock that she kept in the top drawer of her dresser in her room. She testified she'd had a series of "blackouts" in the past, due to heavy drinking, so was uncertain about what had actually happened.

Well, it looks like retired Gen. Tommy Franks, the millionaire who sits on boards of large corporations, had a best-selling book, and gets a fat retirement check from Uncle Sam, forgot that old adage.
MilitaryCorruption.com has learned the Texas-born brass hat, who made a name for himself at the start of the war in Iraq, has turned into just another greedy fat cat, out for a fast buck. This once-respected general has been revealed to have received $100,000 from a $CAM veterans "charity" which paid Franks big bucks for use of his name on solicitation letters sent to the "suckers."
THE NATIONAL GUARD
"DIRTY TRICKS" HANDBOOK
In our first installment of the handbook, [see related stories box at end of this article], we related how crooked personnel officials in the National Guard can undermine and prevent a qualified and deserving member, officer or enlisted, from being promoted. In this, part two, we'll show you how members who transfer between units are often stuck with "charges" for equipment they were never issued in the first place.
Of course, the money is clear profit for the criminals who pull this old stunt. Most of the gear that they falsely claim the member was issued but "failed to turn in" turns out to be stuff that is highly saleable in the civilian world. There's always a market for camping gear, shelter halves, tents, shovels, flashlights, compasses and canteens, to say nothing of dozens of other related items.
Most of those hit with the phony charges decide not to fight, but just "pay the tab" and move on. That's exactly what the corrupt full-timers expect. But once in a while, someone fights the unfair charges, and then things get very dicey indeed. This is the story of one such occasion.

DISTRICT - STANDS GOOD CHANCE TO WIN
Once in a while, a sad story has a happy ending. This November, former Army LTC Allen B. West may be able to serve his country once again - this time as a newly-elected member of Congress.
The highly-respected former combat commander was sacked in 2003 by "politically-correct" Rumsfeld bootlicker, Maj. Gen. Raymond Odierno, after West fired a .45 close to the head of an Iraqi suspect to get information that ended up saving the lives of his men.
The spooked prisoner admitted an ambush of the Americans was set to be sprung and West's troops were able to kill or capture all the attackers as a result of the intelligence their colonel obtained.
