ONCE TEFLON-COATED CAREER
There was a time everything she touched turned to roses. High-flying Army Reserve LTC Debra Harrison of Trenton, New Jersey truly had it made in the shade. Friends in her Norristown, Pa.-based civil affairs unit marveled at what they called her "teflon-coated" career.
The 49 year-old field grade officer came back to her $62,000 accountant civilian job from Iraq wearing the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. She had been in an IED attack, and some shattered glass had nicked her face. It got written up in a local newspaper and people regarded Harrison as some sort of hero.
Neighbors noticed she was seemingly flush with cash - tooling around town in a new $50,000 Cadillac Escalade. Workmen were as busy as bees doing home improvements - a new deck and hot tub for her abode - in one of the better sections of New Jersey's state capital.
THE "CURTAIN OF SILENCE" NOW DESCENDS

HORRIBLE MUST HAVE MADE WELL-LIKED
COMMANDER PULL THE TRIGGER - WHY NO
WARNING OR NOTE LEFT BEHIND? - DOES DEATH
HAVE ANY CONNECTION TO INDICTMENT OF
POWERFUL U.S. SENATOR TED STEVENS?
Things have been hectic round here since we got word that well-liked 3rd Wing Commander, Gen. Thomas Tinsley had apparently shot himself to death in his home on Elmendorf AFB Alaska. So many e-mails have poured in from well-meaning and sometimes "in-the-know" people (both in and out of the Air Force) it has been impossible to find time to answer them all.
By no means do we wish to discourage our readers from contacting us at email@example.com. You know you aren't going to get a snow-job or plausible denial here. If we find out the truth as to why Gen. Tinsley is dead, you will read it here first.
The latest bombshell to hit in the Anchorage area is Tuesday's announcement that powerful U.S. Senator Ted Stevens, former chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, a man known to all senior officers of the military services, has been indicted on seven counts of corruption.

COVER-UP NOW TAKEN WITH HIM TO THE GRAVE
It's a mystery wrapped in an enigma. Why did the well-liked 3rd Wing Commander at Elmendorf AFB Alaska take his own life with a handgun? And why would he do that in his home with his beloved wife and college-age daughter in a near-by room?
Gen. Thomas Tinsley left no "suicide note," sources say, and the base public affairs office confirms the charismatic leader was not under investigation.
"There is no indication of foul play being involved here," said Lt. Col. Michael Paoli.

The Air Force has been rocked to its foundations by the apparent "suicide" of one of its top generals who served as executive officer to ousted Chief of Staff Gen. T. Michael Moseley.
3rd Wing Commander Gen. Thomas Tinsley has been found dead in his home at Elmendorf AFB of a single gunshot wound. "There is no indication of foul play," Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Michael Paoli said.
A usually reliable source in Alaska who asked to remain anonymous said word is the popular general may have shot himself. His body was found at around 10:30 pm Sunday night (July 27).

Either he's a devout "man of God" or a devious womanizer. Each conflicting portrait emerged from a contentious Article 32 hearing held at the Naval Base in Norfolk, Va.
Chaplain (Lt.) Shane Dillman, 35, onetime "Junior Officer of the Year" at the Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., sat silent during the proceedings, his "pit-bull" defense attorney Charles Gittins by his side.
Hair close-cropped in a military cut, wedding ring on his finger, the seemingly pious Pentecostal pastor didn't wince once as he heard himself described as a dangerous "rapist" who terrorized young enlisted women, "forcing" them to have sex with him.

Some would say Jim Wallace deserves a 100% disability rating from the Veterans Administration.
Others would agree the elderly man from Maine who fought the VA bureaucrats for many years and lost every time, should have been compensated for the cancer that has ravaged his once-strong body.
In fact, MilitaryCorruption.com interviewed a brave VA doctor, John Gooey, a top surgeon at the Boston veterans hospital, who dared write a letter on official stationary stating Wallace's throat cancer was specifically caused by "ionized radiation" and that the Pembroke, Maine man's illness should be counted as "service-connected."

Thank God our prayers were answered. People from all over the nation e-mailed us Monday afternoon when word was released that PFC Jeneesa Lewis was alive and safe.
The slender female soldier had suffered through a horrible ordeal, however. Her deadbeat estranged husband had beaten her (kick to the face); stuck her several times in the leg with a knife; raped her; and abducted the mother of three from her El Paso, Tex. apartment. The long, six-hour ride in Jeneesa's pick-up truck to Las Vegas must have been non-stop hell.
It was in Nevada that ex-convict Clinton Lewis decided to hop a bus with his terrorized wife and return to Texas where he gave himself up to authorities. He knew he would be caught sooner or later.

The slender 29 year-old, popular with her fellow GI's at the 5-52 Air Defense Artillery Bn. (11th Brigade) at Fort Bliss, Tex., didn't show up for PT or work Friday (July 18) and that caused concerned friends to check out the private's off-post apartment.
"It was all torn up," a police source told MilitaryCorruption.com. "There was evidence of foul play." Investigators found "blood splattered" in the apartment and Jeneesa's white 2001 Dodge Dakota pick-up gone.

Few non-leftist web sites have pounded George Bush and his Neo-CONS more than this one. We have been outspoken in our opposition to the megalomaniacal former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld; war profiteer, Vice-President Dick "Halliburton" Cheney; and our editorial position against the needless war in Iraq (although we fully support the troops and are against a pell-mell retreat which would only make things worse) caused us to catch plenty of hell from our mainly conservative readers.
But telling the hard truth and showing no favor to one party or the other is important to us and our hard-won credibility. Unlike MSNBC, the "Obama Network," we have no political "agenda" and do not engage in peddling political propaganda. We are for the veteran and service member, first, last and always. And whenever politicians of any stripe try to short-change our men and women in uniform, we will fight back!

Philip Shue a "suicide."
To believe that the well-respected chief psychologist at Wilford Hall Medical Center could mutilate his own body the way he was sliced up (see related stories box at end of this article), then dress himself, get in his car, put on a seatbelt and drive off the road intending to hit a tree and kill himself, is absolutely absurd.

We are also enraged at how he died and are confident that it will only be a matter of time before those responsible for what was done to him will pay for such a heinous crime.
Because there is an on-going investigation, we won't go into details here, other than to wish the detectives working this case the best of luck and hope those who did this are under arrest as soon as possible.

An Air Force "brat," with a fighter-pilot daddy, who had a "love child" with a married congressman, got "favored treatment" from her Pentagon pals even though an official complaint had been filed against her for "unprofessional conduct" by former House Speaker Dennis Hastert's chief of staff.
MilitaryCorruption.com has learned that twice-divorced, long-legged blonde Laura Fay, escaped punishment of any kind after Air Force brass were made aware of her open affair with New York Congressman Vito Fossella during a 2003 Congressional junket to Europe.
The still-attractive, 46 year-old retired light colonel, who was said to have spent all her time with the married lawmaker on the 10-day overseas trip, "acted unprofessionally," according to the complaint made by Hastert's then chief-of-staff, Scott Palmer.

Unlike MSNBC, the "ALL OBAMA - ALL THE TIME" network, we don't carry water for any political party. In fact, the neo-CON Republicans, led by that dimwit in the White House, George Bush, along with war profiteer Dick "Halliburton" Cheney and egomaniacal former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld, have been the object of "heavy fire" on this non-partisan web site.
Our first obligation is to this nation's veterans, and when they get screwed, we get busy! No one gets away with broken promises and indifference if we can help it. You don't get political propaganda here. You get the truth. And those who don't like it can go to hell.
Over the past weekend, a disgusting little snot, disgraced former Gen. Wesley Clark, crawled into the sewer and came up with a handful of slime to hurl at a better man than he. The failed four-star, who was fired from his position as NATO commander in charge of the butchery at Kosovo by Democrat President Bill Clinton and former Defense Secretary Bill Cohen, apparently thought he was being "cute" when he took a cheap shot at Sen. John McCain's wartime service.

OFFICER ACQUITTED ON MORE SERIOUS "RAPE"
CHARGE WHICH WOULD HAVE GOT HIM LIFE IN DB
It was an ignominious end to what had been a charmed career. For 27 years, Col. Samuel Lofton III moved from one promotion and good assignment to the next. Now that Air Force career lies in ruins and the colonel is on his way to prison for at least nine years.
However, the 49 year-old full bird colonel at least avoided conviction on a specious "rape" charge, which would have placed a target square on his back and made his future at Leavenworth DB a constant struggle for survival, looking over his shoulder every moment to see where the "shank" would come from.
Now, he's just a former Air Force officer in good standing who's been convicted of a myriad of larceny and financial crimes that will cost him his pension, his position and pay ($9,000 a month), and $14,000 in fines.

Take the "target" off his back! Col. Samuel Lofton won't be going to Leavenworth on a "rape" conviction after all.
The 27-year Air Force officer was acquitted of the most serious charge against him that would have meant life in prison at the DB and a possible "shank" in the back in the shower room there.
This web site felt the colonel, while guilty of numerous other crimes (such as larceny and being AWOL) did not deserve being "railroaded" to Leavenworth for the rest of his life. And that "life" might have been cut short if he'd arrived a "Mandingo-type" rapist as the prosecution and shameful OSI tried to portray him.

Col. Samuel Lofton is guilty - but not of rape. At least that has to be the conclusion of any thinking person after the officer's defense attorneys succeeded in poking numerous holes in his accuser's account of so-called "rapes" at Sheppard AFB in Texas.
The African-American bird colonel should be kicked out of the Air Force. He's admitted numerous crimes of larceny and violation of trust. His financial wrongdoing netted him some $12,000 in government funds. But the real question here is, did this man sexually assault and "rape" at least two women on the base?
He didn't have to. The sex was consensual. The colonel who went AWOL six times and self-destructed his military career was arrogant and stupid, but he's not the "Mandingo" rapist the prosecution would like you to believe.

There's no question Col. Samuel Lofton III has ruined his career and will be kicked out of the Air Force.
He admitted to many of the charges lodged against him just prior to the start of his court-martial this week at Sheppard AFB in Wichita Falls, Tex.
On advice of his attorneys, Lofton pled "guilty" to misuse of a government credit card; 17 instances of filing false travel reimbursement claims; and acknowledged he was AWOL on at least six occasions.
