HELLO, AMERICA! - GET A LOAD OF ARROGANT
AIR FORCE PAO LT COL ANN STEFANEK - WHEN
MILITARYCORRUPTION.COM FILED AN OFFICIAL
MEDIA INQUIRY ON THE MAJ JILL METZGER
COVER-UP, STEFANEK BLEW US - AND YOU - OFF
PAO SAYS "CASE STILL OPEN" - FOUR YEARS
LATER? - "WE CANNOT DISCUSS DETAILS - NO
OTHER INFORMATION AVAILABLE FOR RELEASE
AT THIS TIME" - OH, YEAH? WHAT DO YOU THINK?
It might as well have been the Soviet "Ministry of Information" during the dark days of Premier Joseph Stalin.
When MilitaryCorruption.com filed an official media inquiry on the status of the Jill Metzger cover-up to the Pentagon, arrogant Air Force PAO, Lt. Col. Ann Stefanek told us - and you, America - to take a hike.
Our readers will recall Maj. Metzger is the former Air Force poster girl who allegedly faked her "abduction" in Kyrgyzstan in 2006 - escaping prosecution for AWOL, making a false official statement, disobeying a direct order, fraternization, adultery, and conduct unbecoming an officer - and incredibly was rewarded with a 100% "disability" pension for "PTSD," supposedly suffered as a result of her "ordeal."
While the mainstream media went to sleep, or shied away from the story, for fear of being labeled anti-feminist or "'politically incorrect," we stayed on the job for nearly four long years, finally digging out the truth and demanding justice be done.
We are about to take the extraordinary step of publishing Stefanek's contemptible communication to us and our reply. Read them both carefully, and then decide for yourself if the Air Force has anything to hide. Better yet, ask yourself if they are lying and obstructing justice.
PENTAGON PAO REPLY TO MEDIA INQUIRY FROM MILITARYCORRUPTION.COM:
"Maj. Jill Metzger is retired.
"Her last decoration was an MSM in 2005 for Operation Iraqi Freedom.
"The case is still open, so we cannot discuss the details. No other information is available for release at this time."
Lt. Col Ann Stefanek
Please note, the PAO doesn't reveal what kind of "retirement" Metzger is on. When we asked WHY Metzger was not given a Silver Star or Air Force Cross for her so-called heroics, "over-powering an armed guard and running barefoot 30, or was it 40 miles to freedom," we were simply given the last date of her getting a decoration. Slick, huh?
Stefanek claims "the case is still open." How can that be, FOUR YEARS after the incident occurred and with Metzger officially "retired?"
"No other information is available for release at this time," is just the Air Force's way of saying to all of us: GO TO HELL!
Well, that works BOTH ways.
MILITARYCORRUPTION.COM FIRES BACK AT PENTAGON FLACK
Below is our editor-in-chief's personal response to the hotshot PAO:
Lt. Col. Stefanek,
Your reply is insulting and totally unsatisfactory. May I remind you, I was a PAO for years, and did not just "arrive on the boat" yesterday.
"THE CASE IS STILL OPEN, SO WE CANNOT DISCUSS THE DETAILS." What? After nearly FOUR YEARS, and with Metzger "retired?" Who do you think you are fooling?
Do you think the American people and the thousands of Air Force personnel, active and retired, who have contacted us since Sept. 2006 about this double-standard of justice, are going to swallow that?
"NO OTHER INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE FOR RELEASE AT THIS TIME." Try that BULL on a U.S. Senate investigating committee, and see what it gets you.
MAJ Glenn MacDonald, USAR (Ret)
(PS) - I have addressed you by your rank in all communications. Since I am a retired field-grade officer and multi-tour combat veteran, who enlisted in the Army in 1966 and retired from the Army Reserve 33 years later, I expect you to at least show enough military courtesy for you to address me by my well-earned retired rank. You do that for the "retired" Maj. Jill Metzger. Why not me? If you cannot do that much, you are totally unprofessional and dismissive of my many years of service to my country.
Well, there it is, folks. As it says in the Bible: "By their fruits ye shall know them." In this case, the shameful position of the Air Force in this matter is shown by Ann Stefanek above.
TO OUR READERS AND ALL USAF PERSONNEL, PAST AND PRESENT
THIS IS A "CALL TO ARMS"
What can you do to help?
First of all, print out a copy of this article. Print many copies. Photocopy them. We don't care. Just as long as you distribute them on every Air Force base in CONUS and overseas. Place them under automobile windshield wipers outside the NCO club. Leave copies in stalls in the latrine. Lay them out on tables in the "day room." Send them via e-mail to buddies and friends, and most important, members of Congress
Ask your elected representatives to demand the Pentagon provide more than the double-talk and arrogant "blow-off" language of obnoxious Lt. Col. Stefanek. If taxpayers' money is illegally going to fund a 100% "disability" pension for a liar and a fraud, we have a right to demand it be stopped. And that the senior officers who made such a crime possible, be brought up on charges and stand court-martial.
Don't wait. DO it NOW! Thank you.
