WILLIAM COHEN’S LEGACY OF FAILURE:
HOW WORST DEFENSE SECRETARY IN 50 YEARS
WHO NEVER SERVED A DAY IN THE MILITARY
DESTROYED MORALE, LET DOWN THE TROOPS
AND PROVIDED “POLITICAL COVER” FOR DRAFT-DODGER BILL CLINTON


Once he was a respected United States senator from Maine.

Now, he’s a rich influence peddler (The Cohen Group); failed former secretary of defense; and a man who squandered his carefully-cultivated and mostly mythical “moral piety” defending the only draft-dodger to be elected President of the United States.

Sadly, William Cohen and his hard-charging “Hillary-clone” wife, Janet Langhart, (see our companion story on the home page), have become an object of derision, even among Democrats and the “media elite,” who used to write adoring articles about them.


EXCLUSIVE!

INSIDE THE CID
CONFESSIONS OF A ROGUE AGENT

By SGT RICHARD EDWARDS*

©MilitaryCorruption.com 2002

Our job was to enforce the law, but more times than not, we ended up breaking it. This was the paradox I faced as a young Criminal Investigation Division (CID) agent.

To us, the Constitution didn’t matter. Due process was a legal term we paid little attention to. We didn’t have to. Our officers and commanders used us to plant evidence, settle scores, and “target” people the brass didn’t like.

All the illusions I had about honesty and integrity and learning to be a “good cop”– that all went out the window, almost from the first day I became a CID agent.


DIFFERENT SPANKS FOR DIFFERENT RANKS
THE DOUBLE-STANDARD IN THE MILITARY
HOW TWO COLONELS GOT OFF WITH A SLAP
ON THE WRIST WHILE GI'S GET THE BOOT

One was accused of sodomy and rape; the other, misuse of government services, violating joint ethics regulations, and engaging in an "improper relationship" with the wife of an enlisted soldier.

Both were bird colonels and both got off with a "slap on the wrist." So what else is new?

Few things are more destructive to morale in the military than the "top brass" getting favored treatment. But it happens all the time.


MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE - MARINE
GETS LIFE IN PRISON FOR A CRIME
HE DIDN'T DO. THE STORY OF LANCE CORPORAL KEVIN HOLT

Forget the Bill of Rights and civilian concepts of a justice system, including the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) was designed and is perpetuated primarily to reinforce the command structure. In other words, the "fix" is in.

Lance Corporal Kevin Holt, USMC, was arrested by the San Diego, Calif. Sheriff's Department on May 17, 1992 while home on leave in Washington State. He was on his way home from church with his fiancee, whom he was due to marry in three days. He was 21 years old.

What has become a nine-year "nightmare" had just begun.


THE UNSUNG HERO OF THE USS
IOWA EXPLOSION - HOW THE NAVY
FAILED TO PUNISH A FEMALE
OFFICER'S VENDETTA AGAINST HIM

It was one of the most heroic acts in the annals of the US Navy, and if it had occurred in wartime, Petty Officer John Mullahy would have won the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Instead, he was the victim of a vendetta so vicious and unrelenting, his Navy career and life was ruined. His enemy, now-retired USN Capt. Patricia Rios, daughter and only child of Vice-Admiral John Barrow (now deceased), is alleged to have gone to great lengths to "punish" Mullahy for what he calls "refusing to obey an illegal order."

After an extensive investigation by MilitaryCorruption.com, we have concluded Mullahy acted properly and was "guilty" of no more than arousing the hatred of an officer who would go to any length to harass and harm him.


WAS IT MURDER OR SUICIDE?
THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF
CW2 LUIS RODRIGUEZ-MARTINEZ

R.I.P.
1955 - 2000

"They might as well have killed him, because what they did drove him to his death!"

Maria, widow of CW2 Luis Rodriguez-Martinez, whose lifeless body was found in an isolated section of the Franklin Mountains last November, was hurt and angry when she was interviewed by MilitaryCorruption.com at her El Paso, Texas home.

"My husband gave many years to the Army and he helped so many people. But in the end, it was the Army that destroyed him, and very few 'friends" remained." Earlier articles in MilitaryCorruption.com detailed how Chief Rodriguez-Martinez was railroaded and finally sentenced on trumped-up charges at his court-martial to ten years in Leavenworth Prison.

RISKING THE HEALTH OF THE US MILITARY

Al Capone would have been proud.

Former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. William J. Crowe Jr. was part of the crew that sold Saddam Hussein the deadly means to wage war with anthrax germs. That's when the United States wanted the "Butcher of Baghdad" to use anthrax on Iran.

MURDER IN THE MILITARY


WHO KILLED Col. SABOW ?

Jimmy Sabow was one of America's best. A full colonel in the US Marine Corps, he served bravely in Vietnam flying 221 combat missions in an A-6 Intruder.

At the time of his death, he was the Assistant Chief of Staff at El Toro, MCAS, California.

It is the nature of that death that is in dispute. The Marine Corps says it was "suicide" by shotgun.

After an exhaustive study of the NIS investigative file; death photos and autopsy records; ballistics test results and other medical files; court records and detailed statements by Col. Sabow's brother, Dr. J. D. Sabow, MilitaryCorruption.com contends the real cause was MURDER.
