© 2008 MilitaryCorruption.com
We always knew it would take someone from the "inside" - one of the OSI (Office of Special Investigations) agents - to crack the Pentagon wall of silence and help us break the Maj. Jill Metzger case wide open. Now it has happened. We have done it. Where is the AIR FORCE TIMES, or for that matter, STARS & STRIPES?
It was a long, hard road, two years of dogged determination, digging out intel and following up leads to get us where we are today. The "mainstream media" failed to ask questions about the many "problems" with Metzger's derring-do account of her "abduction" in Kyrgyzstan and subsequent "escape" (after allegedly "overpowering a guard" in the third day of her so-called captivity) and return to U.S. control - running barefoot for 30 miles. Her account had big holes in it from the very beginning.
Was it fear of being labeled "politically-incorrect" that caused everyone but NEWSDAY (they retreated after an initial skeptical story on Jill's claims), or just plain laziness made the media back off from pressing the Pentagon to tell the truth about the pampered and protected Air Force "poster girl," whose connections - a retired colonel daddy with friends in high places and OSI agent husband - gave her special privileges over ordinary men and women in the military?
WORLDWIDE NEWS AS MEDIA GOES GA-GA OVER METZGER'S "ABDUCTION"
It was a sensational story from the start. The first week of September 2006, two-time Air Force Marathon winner and super achiever Maj. Jill Metzger turned up missing while on an off-base visit to a department store in far-away Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. The personnel officer had been deployed to Manas AFB, about 30 kilometers from the Kyrgz capital.
The missing major was the subject of entire programs on ABC'S "NIGHTLINE," the TV morning shows, and the cable news networks. The New York TIMES and Washington POST expended a forest of newsprint to speculate about what may have happened.
Three days later, September 8th, Jill Metzger surfaced with a tale that made even "the dog ate my homework" seem a rational story in comparison. The major media started to back away. What they hoped was a feminist icon to celebrate turned out to have feet of clay.
OBVIOUS LIES CAUSE INVESTIGATORS TO SUSPECT HER FROM THE START
The crazy tale of 87-pound Jill "overpowering" a guard the third day of her abduction; the "trance" she said she was in; the "bomb" in her back pocket (of jeans?) and the highly improbable 30 mile run to freedom sent up red flags. Suddenly the big guns of the press and TV weren't so interested anymore.
Never mind that millions of taxpayer dollars had been expended in the "search" for what local police felt was a woman who'd undergone a botched operation at an abortion clinic. Kyrgz cops, including Kemilbek Kiyazov, chief of the Chuysic Region Police Dept. thought Metzger was lying from the start.
During interrogation, after Jill had allegedly run to safety at a home in Kant, north of the capital, the police knew she was not telling the truth.
Kiyazov spoke of "contradictions" in Jill's bizarre story that made him doubt the abduction claim. For example, the chief said Metzger said she'd been "robbed" of a necklace by the kidnappers but failed to explain why they hadn't touched the expensive wedding ring she was still wearing on her finger.
Also troubling was the brown hair dye that covered the officer's palms. She was a natural blonde. Why did Metzger color her hair? So she wouldn't be recognized as easily as a foreigner when she went for a certain "medical procedure?" Jill's only response was her captors "made" her do it.
Blood was seen on the top but there was little wear and tear on the soles of her feet. That fact was noted in the OSI report, the one you "bloodhounds" in the major media failed to ask for through the Freedom of Information Act. If Metzger had run 30 miles, or even two miles barefoot, why weren't her feet cut up and bloody on the bottom? Investigators surmised the blood came from another place, higher up, perhaps?
SPECIAL TREATMENT FOR METZGER AS HER STORY UNRAVELS
Metzger was whisked out of the country on a special flight before Kyrgyz cops could finish their interrogation. You can understand how this put them and the government of Kyrgyzstan in a snit. Stop and think about it, a female American major had accused their nation of having criminals that abduct a woman officer from a friendly country.
We are told at least 24 OSI agents, working in teams of six, were flown into Kyrgyzstan to aid in the "search" for Metzger and then the several months of follow-up investigation. No expense was spared, and Jill cheerleader Gen. Gary North was on scene to make sure the Air Police guards in the bunker at Manas didn't talk to the news media about anything. "You didn't see a thing, OK?" the slimy flag officer told the low-ranking enlisted men as he pressed his "coin" into their palm.
The "bribe" didn't work, as one of the guards is a regular reader - we get over two million hits a month worldwide on MilitaryCorruption.com - and told us all about the incident.
Military personnel on Manas AFB were placed on lock down and couldn't go into town for months after the Metzger phony kidnapping. That did not please the rank-and-file, who made sure to e-mail us about it.
JILL "CLAMS UP" AND REFUSES A PREGNANCY TEST, OSI AGENT TELLS US
As we said at the start of our story - this is the first installment of a three-part series on one of the most shameful cover-ups in Air Force history - we broke the case when an OSI agent who investigated Metzger's disappearance and was "on the ground" in Kyrgyzstan and in the United States, came forward to tell us what really happened.
Because of the obvious retaliation this OSI agent would face if (her/his) identity were revealed, we shall call that person the INSIDER and use that reference ID from here on.
(MCC) -- We are told Metzger refused a pregnancy test. Do you know anything about that?
(INSIDER) -- That is correct.
(MCC) -- You know that for a fact?
(INSIDER) -- Yes.
The OSI agent also said Jill declined to take a blood test which would have shown whether she had recently been pregnant. Metzger told investigators she had not been raped or sexually molested while in "captivity."
(MCC) -- Why didn't a senior medical officer, in the face of these suspicious refusals, simply order her to submit to the tests?
(INSIDER) -- They could have, but nobody wanted to touch it. They didn't want to push the envelope.
(MCC) -- No rape kit test was performed, never mind what Jill claimed did or didn't happen?
(INSIDER) -- That's right. She said "no way," so they just skipped over it. I think it was completely irresponsible of them to just let it go, but that's what happened."
DID METZGER'S CELEBRITY AND SPECIAL CONNECTIONS
GIVE HER A FREE PASS?
The OSI agent said Metzger was "very-well connected." The INSIDER said her young captain husband - "Josh" was a 27 year-old first lieutenant and she a 34 year-old major when they "married," both for the first time - has a father high up in the OSI Command who "can make life hell for you. He is a very vindictive individual," the INSIDER said.
(INSIDER) -- When the initial investigation kicked off, the father was intruding into the case file and was finally told to back off."
The bare bones account the Air Force released of Metzger's so-called abduction said two or three men and a woman kidnapped Metzger and took her to a secluded place where she was locked in a room. Here below is what an OSI agent who investigated that claim has to say:
(INSIDER) -- In reference to Metzger's claim she overpowered a guard, we felt it was a ridiculous story. First she told us she kept her sanity while locked up in the room by doing push-ups, exercising, and (at this point, agent laughs) singing the Air Force Hymn.
(MCC) -- Why wasn't she tied down? Do you mean to say she had the run of the room?
(INSIDER) -- Metzger said they had this rope and they would tie it around her neck and it was hooked to a ring embedded in the concrete on the floor. She said they'd tie that rope around her neck. Then, when they left her alone, she claimed she'd take the rope off her neck and walk around the room, whatever. She said all that time she was naked, didn't have any clothes on at all.
(MCC) -- What did she say about "overpowering" the guard? Wasn't he armed?
(INSIDER) -- Metzger claimed one of her abductors was a young male. She claimed she waited until he came in to give her some food, and at that time she made a motion as if she wanted to have sex with him. She says she'd found a stick somewhere, had sharpened it, and stabbed him in the abdomen as she was giving him oral sex. That supposedly slowed the guard down enough for her to run away - thirty miles - until she knocked on the door of the home in Kant.
WHEN OSI QUESTIONS HER TOO CLOSE, METZGER
"CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED"
The OSI agent told MilitaryCorruption.com Metzger's feet had "no indication" of running any distance at all, "especially barefoot."
(INSIDER) -- We had only a brief time to question her at Manas (AFB) before she was flown out of the country. The next time our agents talked to her was at the hospital (in Germany). There, she clammed up incredibly tight. She'd say one thing and we'd easily eat holes in the story. Once we'd call her out on that, she'd mumble: "I don't know. I can't remember." I think she realized our people weren't buying her story at all, so she just decided to shut up and and say nothing more.
After several days of physical examination at an Air Force medical center in Germany, Metzger was flown to Moody AFB in Georgia, where she was placed with a female "minder" captain to keep lesser mortals away from the controversial celebrity officer.
(INSIDER) - It was frustrating. She seemed absolutely bulletproof. We couldn't understand why all the kid gloves treatment. Even after she failed the polygraph test at Moody. There were clear instances of deception.

Click on MilitaryCorruption.com daily for our next bombshell account - how Jill had a "nervous breakdown" at Moody AFB in the base gym (while working out on the treadmill) and, crying hysterically and curling up in a fetal position, confessed to having "two affairs" while stationed in Kyrgyzstan.
Also, read about the cover-up engineered by the top brass and subsequent and specious PTSD "disability" payoff - big bucks for Jill - but an insult to our genuinely wounded and disabled vets coming home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who have to fight many years for every dime they can get in monetary compensation.
