Now it can be told.

We have nailed down, with "double-confirmation," this part of the Tracy Shue saga you're about to read now. So, with the wealthy widow unable to deny the facts, here's yet another example of her "money-grubbing" ways that will prove, for some people, no amount of "moo-lah" is ever enough.

Rumors are running rampant at Pope Air Force Base N.C. in the wake of the sudden firing of popular Col. John McDonald, up until "yesterday," commander of the 43rd Airlift Wing.

Flacks from the Air Mobility Command have been authorized to say the 48 year-old bird colonel was sacked by none other than the Air Force chief-of-staff himself, Norton Schwartz.

Did hot-tempered First Lady Michelle Obama get her her nose out of joint over something that happened during her recent visit to Pope, where the affable McDonald presented Barack Hussein Obama's powerful wife with a t-shirt?

This is the face of evil. Don't look at this pix if you're sitting down to dinner or getting ready for bed.

Shannon Butler's police mug photo sent shivers down the backs of even the most hardened combat veterans here at MilitaryCorruption.com.

This definitely is not a "woman" you'd want to meet up with anytime soon. Said to be the lesbian lover of ex-Navy PO2 Rebecca Braswell, Butler's thin-lipped, beedy-eyed, hate-filled glare would make even the toughest Navy SEAL beware.

We think this is a good case for "the death penalty" - the conspiracy to slay Marmo - whose only "crime" was he tried to get custody of his 4 year-old daughter Heather from his sicko ex-wife. But instead, all involved are going to be a burden on the taxpayers for the next, say, 50 years

AIR GUARD GENERAL IN MONTANA FIRED
BECAUSE OF "INAPPROPRIATE RELATIONSHIP"
BRIG. GEN. JOHN DEL TORO OUT THE DOOR
AIR FORCE ACADEMY GRAD MAY HAVE BEEN
DUMPED IN A "POLITICAL POWER PLAY" - GEN.
JOHN WALSH, ADJUTANT GENERAL, "PULLS THE
TRIGGER" ON HIS FELLOW FLAG OFFICER

The once high-flying career of Brig. Gen. John Del Toro has crashed to the ground. The 50 year-old fighter-pilot and 1981 AFA grad, was fired from his job as asst. adjutant general of the Montana National Guard, allegedly, because he was said to be involved in an "inappropriate relationship."

"I have lost confidence in his ability to lead," was the boilerplate from Del Toro's boss, Adjutant Gen. John Walsh.

Some observers, however, wonder if Del Toro was dumped in a "political power play." More than a few National Guard generals throughout the country have been known to have affairs, some even regard it as a "perk of office," so even if Del Toro was fooling around, the bad behavior could be a convenient excuse to push him out the door.

An engineering officer assigned to Naval Surface Force Atlantic in Norfolk is facing the end of his military career.

Lt. George Koons, arrested on child pornography charges, has been released on $5000 bail.

The Chesapeake, Va. man is charged with taking pictures of under-age girls without their knowledge at his home. He is also accused of possession of child pornographic materials.

Debra Harrison thought she had it made.

An Army Reserve lieutenant colonel in a Norristown, Pa. unit, the hard-charging officer apparently figured she'd get away with accepting bribes from crooked contractors in Iraq. But her greed tripped her up.

Now she's been sentenced to prison for 30 months. Harrison has lost her military retirement pension, her liberty, and been socked with a huge fine, in excess of $360,000.

Corruption in the military is a worldwide problem and, because of the urgency of this breaking news, we hasten to post this story for our many readers "Down Under" in Australia who are just now learning their Defense Minister, Joel Fitzgibbon, has suddenly resigned.

If the powerful military boss had not quit, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd would have surely been forced to "sack" him.

A series of gaffes and incredible blunders over the past 18 months led up to what is "page one news" today all across Australia. Fitzgibbon had repeatedly gotten himself into a mess by an incredible lack of common sense. A shocking lack of ethics played a big part, as well. At any rate, most agree, his tenure in office was a disaster, and many in the Australian forces are happy to see him go.


B U L L E T I N

CHAPLAIN GETS TEN YEARS IN PRISON - KICKED
OUT OF NAVY - LT SHANE DILLMAN HAULED OFF
IN HAND-CUFFS AFTER JUDGE PASSES SENTENCE
AT NORFOLK - FOUND GUILTY OF ALL SEX COUNTS
EXCEPT RAPE - PENTACOSTAL PASTOR WITH WIFE
AND CHILDREN FORMER CHAPLAIN ON USS VINSON

It's all over for Navy Chaplain, Lt. Shane Dillman. The Pentecostal pastor, with a wife and three kids, is on his way to prison for the next ten years. The former senior clergyman aboard the aircraft carrier USS Vinson was hauled out of the courtroom in handcuffs at Norfolk, Va.

Dismissed from the Navy, his ministerial career in ruins, (Dillman will have to register as a sex offender when he finally gets out of the slammer), the only break the 37 year-old officer caught in court was beating a rape charge which could have put him in Leavenworth for life.

At the beginning of the four-day trial before military judge (Capt.) Moira Modzelewski, Dillman pled "guilty" to forcing sex on three female enlisted sailors. The clergyman denied any rape or uttering a "threat" to one of his "victims" to keep quiet.


SQUADRON COMMANDER SENTENCED IN SEX
CASE AT McCHORD AFB - LT COL STEVEN DiMATTEO
CONVICTED OF "INAPPROPRIATE SEXUAL CONTACT"
WITH MALE STAFF SERGEANT - OFF TO PRISON FOR
11 MONTHS - MARRIED FATHER OF THREE HAD
TOTAL OF 18 YEARS MILITARY SERVICE

Usually it's the "he said - she said" sex cases that result in the male service-member being sent off to prison, but this one has a unique twist.

Air Force Lt. Col. Steven DiMatteo was convicted, among other things, of exposing himself and "inappropriately touching" an enlisted man while both were serving in Turkey.

There were no witnesses to the alleged acts, and the colonel's civilian defense attorney complained to the court that DiMatteo's accuser has a "serious credibility problem," but the jury voted to convict anyway. Thus the commander of the 10th Airlift Squadron, 62nd Opns. Group at McChord AFB Washington, is on his way to prison.

DILLMAN FACES LIFE IMPRISONMENT FOR RAPE
COURT-MARTIAL UNDERWAY AT NORFOLK
TOP DEFENSE ATTORNEY CHARLES GITTINS TO
"ZERO IN" ON ACCUSER'S "CREDIBILITY"

It was the only sensible strategy. Navy Chaplain (Lt.) Shane Dillman knew the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) had him on adultery and fraternization charges, so with the good advice of his attorney, courtroom "pit-bull" Charles Gittins, the 36 year-old officer pled "guilty."

But the "rape" charge hanging over Dillman's head is the one that could send the former Pentecostal preacher to prison. If anyone can save him, it's Gittins, a tough-talking, "take-no-prisoners" defense lawyer, who cuts through accuser's lies like a "buzz-saw."

The former chaplain on the aircraft carrier USS Vinson is counting on Gittins to keep him from getting a one-way ticket to the Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks in Kansas.

Is Air Force Chief of Staff, Gen. Norton Schwartz, finally getting with the program and cleaning house of two top generals who would have a very hard time if they were measured up against the USAF "Core Values" criteria? We will know very soon.

Word is out on the street and throughout the Pentagon that an old "running pal" and powerful enabler of Maj. Jill Metzger, Gen. D.W. Corley, had been told: "You will retire - this year." The four-star general is presently boss of Air Combat Command at Langley, AFB, Va.

Our advice to him is: "Don't let the door hit you on the way out!" His departure will be no loss.


ARMY GENERAL AT PENTAGON SHOT DEAD
IN HIS OFFICE - THREE BULLETS TO THE CHEST
"OFFICIAL VERSION" HE WAS "DEPRESSED" AND

HIGH-LEVEL CORRUPTION TO NEWS MEDIA OR
A CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE?

His military background was impeccable. Cornell graduate. Highly-decorated combat veteran.
There was no reason for Brig. Gen. Francis Brink to kill himself.

That he died, sitting at his desk in the Pentagon, three bullets fired into his chest, didn't faze the top brass or their public relations "spinmeisters" one bit.

The Army general, they claimed, had "committed suicide" because he was "depressed." Yeah, that's the ticket. Brink fired "three times" into his lungs and heart just to make sure he'd done the job right.

"When I remember all the friends so linked together I've seen around me fall,
like leaves in wintery weather,
I feel like one who treads alone some banquet hall deserted,
whose lights are fled, whose garlands dead, and all but he departed."

If you live as long as I have, you will see the "leaves" - our beloved friends and colleagues - fall, one-by-one, from the tree of life. It hurts just as much every time.

The Irish poet Thomas Moore, who wrote the words quoted above, knew the sorrow those of us who remain behind feel whenever another of our dwindling band of brothers dies and drops "like leaves in wintery weather."

The rank-and-file of the Montana National Guard are shaking their heads and watching out who they talk to in the wake of the public firing of the state's Air Guard leader, Brig. Gen. John Del Toro.

A terse statement from Adjutant General John Walsh's office was all that was publicly revealed.

"I have lost confidence in Gen. Del Toro's ability to lead," was the typical boilerplate. But those in-the-know say the popular "blue suiter" may be more the victim of a political purge than a "bad guy" deserving the boot.

Of course there's a downside on "the road to riches." You're also likely to get caught if you steal or take bribes.

An Army major has become the latest field-grade to find himself/herself in handcuffs after their corruption was uncovered. More and more officers getting nabbed have "flipped" and become informants and witnesses for the prosecution.

SEX CHARGES - DANIEL JONES FACES UP TO
ELEVEN YEARS IN PRISON - ADMITTED RAPE
OF YOUNG TEENAGE GIRL - MASTER CHIEF
PETTY OFFICER FROM USS LOUISIANA TO BE
SENTENCED IN CIVILIAN COURT JUNE 5TH

The latest in a rash of sex crimes involving Navy personnel stationed in the Kitsap-Bremerton, Wash. area is a master chief petty officer who served as "chief of the boat" on the submarine USS Louisiana. He has pled guilty to sexual abuse of a teenage girl.

Daniel C. Jones admitted in superior court that he forced sex on a teen-age girl after showing her a pornographic magazine which promoted adults having sexual intercourse with children.

The 39 year-old career Navy man faces up to 11 years in prison when he is sentenced on June 5th.

Twenty years after retired Petty Officer First Class John Mullahy saved the USS Iowa from blowing up, the hero sailor still is denied justice in what we at MilitaryCorruption.com consider to be one of the most egregious cases of abuse we have seen in the U.S. Navy.

This brave man, who risked a fiery death and the ultimate sacrifice in saving the lives of the ship's crew, deserves to have his record cleared. And we are calling upon Chief of Naval Operations Mike Mullen to order a full investigation into the abuses inflicted on John Mullahy. It's never too late to right a wrong.

A troubled Navy midshipman, just four weeks from graduation, will be going to the Norfolk,Va. brig instead, after she was convicted at court martial of theft and conduct unbecoming an officer.

Julia Kaelberer, 23, of Rialto, Calif. buried her face in her hands and cried when sentence was handed down. But the daughter of a retired Navy chaplain got off easy with the "slap-on-the-wrist" jail term and a dishonorable discharge. She could have been sent to prison for up to 70 years.

Former Army Secretary and Clinton re-tread, Louis Caldera, should be fired! Now.

Let's see if Barack Hussein Obama has the guts to do the right thing and dump this idiot, who admitted in a very brief statement he was the one who "approved the mission" over New York.

Planning such an incredibly stupid stunt is lunacy! Anyone knows a huge, low-flying, passenger-type jet, complete with fighter planes apparently "chasing" it to "shoot it down," would spread fear and panic, opening up the terrible wounds of 911 for the people of New York City.
