WORST SCANDALS IN AIR FORCE HISTORY
© 2008 MilitaryCorruption.com
The motto on President Harry Truman's desk said it all: THE BUCK STOPS HERE.
We believe those high-ranking officers who stonewalled the politically-correct mainstream media and conspired to hide the truth about Maj. Jill Metzger's phony "kidnapping" in Kyrgyzstan in 2006 should be brought up on charges and face court-martial.
Being a "flag officer" should not be like a Monopoly game, where the player has a GET OUT OF JAIL FREE card. Our leaders should be held to the highest standards. Those who mouth platitudes about Air Force "core values" should be made to adhere to them. If they don't, they ought to be punished under the UCMJ like any of the lower ranks. And we don't mean a Gen. Thomas J. Fiscus "slap-on-the- wrist" and wink from the top brass as another high-ranker slips out the back door to enjoy his lucrative retirement.
Fired and disgraced former Air Force Chief of Staff, Gen. T. Michael Moseley has a lot to answer for, as the Metzger cover-up was conceived on his watch. For him and his chief Jill-enabler, Gen. Gary North (Gen. John D. W. Corley has also been known to be a Metzger protector) and OSI boss and bully boy Gen. Dana Simmons, there are plenty of questions that need to be asked.
Now that we have what we are told is a man of honor and integrity sitting in the COS chair, Gen. Norton Schwartz, can we hope that perhaps he will move quickly to erase this blot on the image of the outstanding men and women who serve in the United States Air Force?
MILLION$ WASTED ON "WILD GOOSE CHASE" AND
THE PTSD "DISABILITY" PAY-OFF
Doesn't anyone in Congress care how many millions of taxpayer dollars were wasted on what one OSI agent who worked the case called "a wild goose chase?" What about the huge increase in rent the USA has to pay Kyrgyzstan for Manas AFB in the wake of the Metzger slur upon that nation's honor and reputation?
Don't the mothers and fathers of America, wives, husbands, and sweethearts of our genuinely wounded and disabled vets from Iraq and Afghanistan recoil at the thought of an officer - who should have faced charges for AWOL, making a false official statement, disobeying a standing order; adultery, fraternization, and conduct unbecoming an officer - being rewarded with a PTSD "disability" pension, when it takes lesser mortals many years of fighting the "system" to get adequate monetary compensation for their real injuries and disabilities?
For two years now, top generals have done back-flips and genuflected in front of an admin officer who happens to be a two-time winner of the Air Force Marathon; has a doting retired colonel daddy with high connections at the Pentagon; and is married to a member of the feared OSI. Could it be they have been "compromised" in some way and are seeking to save their own careers by pampering and protecting the one-time Air Force poster girl?
TWENTY ONE QUESTIONS THAT DEMAND ANSWERS
IN JILL METZGER COVER-UP
Listed below, are twenty one questions that must be answered if we are ever to get to the bottom of this disgraceful cover-up. Air Force rank-and-file are not "dummies" who will silently shuffle away without questions when the so-called "leadership" insults them by neglecting to even issue a final statement on the Metzger case. Do they think you're all stupid?
Here we go:
( 1 ) -- Why do department store security cameras in Bishkek show JM violating a standing order by breaking off from other U.S. military personnel and then, unmolested and seemingly unconcerned, riding the escalator to the bottom floor where a Kyrgyz adult male she seems to recognize is waiting?
( 2 ) -- Metzger claimed she was in some sort of "trance" and felt a "bomb" placed in the back pocket of her jeans while in the store. Films from the security camera shows no such object. Or any other, for that matter.
( 3 ) -- Why did Metzger have dark brown hair dye on her hands and her normally-blonde locks colored when she returned to U.S. control from her so-called "abduction?" Why would kidnappers do that? Or did Jill want to disguise her foreign origin when she went to a Kyrgyz medical clinic?
( 4 ) - Was Jill's plan to quietly get an abortion - as we are told Manas personnel joked was the reason she disappeared on the second day of her absence - and something went wrong? Did she hemorrhage during the procedure and the frightened doctor kept her from returning to base before the 2200 hours curfew? Did JM's fantastic and unbelievable tale spring from that possible mishap, or was it dreamed up from reading a magazine filled with "heroism" stories the OSI found in her quarters?
( 5 ) -- Why was JM whisked out of Kyrgyzstan on a special American cargo flight before local police could complete their questioning? Could it be because they openly expressed disbelief in Metzger's "my dog ate the homework" tale?
( 6 ) -- Why did Jill lie to Kyrgyz police about being "robbed" by her "kidnappers." She claimed a necklace had been "grabbed" from around her neck. The local cop, no fool he, noticed she still had her expensive wedding ring on her finger and asked why THAT gem wasn't taken? Metzger clammed up.
( 7 ) -- How come blood was found on top of Jill's feet, not the bottoms, where she claimed she'd heroically run 30 miles - or was it 40, "Daddy Metzger in denial" - that would have torn up her uncovered tootsies for sure? Try running barefoot in the countryside for one mile and see what happens to you.
( 8 ) -- How could an 87-pound female, with a 12 year-old boy's body, in her third day of so-called "captivity," overwhelm and escape an armed guard, running away without alerting the other "bad guys" who would be sure to follow and perhaps shoot her? A bullet can even outrun the great marathon champ, Jill Metzger.
( 9 ) -- Why did Jill make several maximum cash withdrawals from her account on base just prior to her disappearance? OSI checked and found none of it was sent home. Was it to pay a certain TCN in a white van (seen following her bus out the main gate after inquiring of a guard if Maj. Metzger was aboard?) Was the money to pay him his "middle-man" fee and also cover the cost of a certain medical procedure?
( 10 ) -- Why did the base commander give Metzger such power and authority that she arrogantly abused officers and enlisted members alike with utter impunity? Why didn't the colonel step in and bring to a halt to JM's alleged drunken antics on July 4, 2006 when she was seen by witnesses acting inebriated and spraying military personnel with water as she rode in the back of pickup wearing a "Daisy Mae" outfit?
( 11 ) -- Is the taxi driver who told Kyrgyz police he picked up Jill from near the Bishkek bus station and drove her to the Issyk Ata District Medical Clinic in Kant (near the junction of Togolok-Moldo and Kievskaya Streets) having hallucinations? Especially his recollection that his female passenger was rubbing dye into her hair in the back seat as they proceeded to their destination?
( 12 ) -- Why didn't Jill use her cell phone that she had with her at the time of her "abduction" to call for help? OSI investigators found she'd received two calls on it after the time of her "kidnapping" and then suddenly no more. It was never recovered. But the cell phone records survive.
( 13 ) -- Why didn't anyone take responsibility for her "kidnapping?" Surely, there would have been a ransom demand. The OSI report said no "abductors" were ever found. How come Jill can "escape" from her "captors," and run 30 to 40 miles naked (as she claimed she was in her statement) for how long a period of time, how many hours, and not be noticed by anyone until she turned up on the doorstep of a home less than a mile from the med facility?
( 14 ) -- Why did Jill "clam up" after telling conflicting stories to the local police and later on, the OSI? Why did she fail a polygraph test "by a mile" at Moody AFB and continue to get away with lack of memory when investigators tore holes in her latest fabrications?
( 15 ) -- How come the Air Force chose to overlook at least six serious violations of the UCMJ that would have resulted in anyone else, without celebrity or connections, being busted, court-martialed and possibly sentenced to prison? Why was Jill's breakdown and confession in the Moody AFB gym (confirmed by OSI)
( 16 ) -- Why did Jill refuse a pregnancy or even a blood test? We know she claimed not to have been "raped" by her "kidnappers," that's in the OSI report, but isn't there a senior medical officer in the Air Force who isn't so intimidated by her powerful enablers that he would not have ordered the necessary tests be conducted?
( 17 ) -- This one is so very obvious. If JM performed all the heroics - the incredible and daring "escape and evasion" that she claimed and was publicly stated in the docile Air Force TIMES, then why hasn't the brass presented her with the Air Force Cross or some other high medal? One would think the PAO types would launch Jill on a whirlwind tour of the country to drum up more "super-achiever" driven women to populate the officer ranks. Could it be they know her story is a lie and they have nothing to support an award citation?
( 18 ) -- Why did odious Gen. Gary North, who was waiting for Jill when she returned from her "great adventure" in the main bunker at the entrance to Manas, tell security guards to forget what they'd seen and not speak to the media. He apparently thought he'd "sealed the deal" or bribe, when he pressed his "coin" into the palms of the low-ranking enlisted members. He underestimated their level of integrity. At least one is a regular MCC reader.
( 19 ) -- How come Jill gets a 100% PTSD "disability" pension, pending her temporary medical retirement, when genuinely wounded and disabled combat veterans spend years fighting the "system" for a fraction of those benefits? Was it hush-money or a pay-off to keep Jill from going on "The View" or doing the "victim" routine for feminist media outlets?
( 20 ) -- Why did Jill rate an officer "minder" flown in from the Pentagon and a bird colonel to escort her around base so she wouldn't have to rub shoulders with the lower ranks and help her jump the line in the BX and the pharmacy.
( 21 ) -- We have quoted an OSI agent who investigated Metzger as saying: "The word went out. Lay off her. She has somebody big by the balls." Which general or generals are they? Why hasn't Secretary of Defense Robert Gates or the new Air Force chief of staff moved to discipline them?
COUNT ON MILITARYCORRUPTION.COM FOR THE UNVARNISHED TRUTH
Those who depend on the good will of the Pentagon, like lap-dog Air Force TIMES, DOD-funded STARS & STRIPES, (Hi, Nancy - remember the rank goes before the name) and a lazy and indifferent mainstream media, cowed by the thought they could be labeled "politically incorrect" for criticizing a onetime Air Force feminist icon, dare not tell you the truth. We will. And at the risk of our web site, our freedom, and even our lives, if need be.
The extraordinary step of hacking and shutting down MilitaryCorruption.com for several days earlier this month was a calculated and criminal act that will likely go unpunished because of who perpetrated it.
They could again attack this site and we would have to expend more time and money to combat their violation of freedom of the press and the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. But we will do whatever it takes to see that justice is finally done.
As we have said on these pages before. What doesn't destroy us, only makes us stronger. We will never bow to censorship or cower in fear of anyone. MilitaryCorruption.com will not be shut down and silenced.
NOTHING "PERSONAL" ABOUT OUR RELENTLESS METZGER PROBE
We have no personal dispute with the (until now) fortunate Jill Metzger. She is but a symbol of what has happened to the military in recent years. If she were male, without celebrity, low-ranking and unconnected, if found guilty of the charges mentioned above, she would do time and receive a bad conduct discharge.
All we ask here is that the truth be made known; that those who conspired to cover-up the facts in this case - who dishonored their rank and position - be made to pay for those crimes, no matter who they are.
Jill does not "deserve" a PTSD "disability" pension pay-off. We're not asking for her to be incarcerated. But she should be put out of the Air Force on a less-than-honorable discharge and be made to pay back every cent (with interest) of her allegedly ill-gotten gains. Maybe doting daddy, deep in denial, can come up with the cash.
Hundreds of e-mails have poured in to us since our latest dust-up with censorship. Many of them are supportive, for which we are deeply grateful. Some were sarcastic and whining, like the egotistical Army PAO type who complained we "don't have any credibility" because we didn't "identify" our OSI agent source to what would be certain retaliation and retribution. And some messages were downright hateful and threatening. Those have been passed on to the proper authorities.
Ask yourself, dear reader, why the Pentagon and Air Force brass have "circled the wagons" around their pet Jill Metzger? Why would they seek to muzzle MilitaryCorruption.com and stonewall anyone else who deigns to ask for accountability in this fraud and fiasco? We are sure you can figure out the answer.
The disinformation specialists and nitpickers are always going to be there, whether on the Pentagon payroll or not. We will let the FACTS stand by themselves. So we ask you, while there is still time, and you are still able to do it, please download our stories, distribute them everywhere you can. Use the green tab at the bottom left hand corner of each of our articles to e-mail them to a friend, your congressman or a media outlet.
Tell others about us. Click-on www.militarycorruption.com every day. Pray for us. God knows we need it. We charge no fee, ask no money, for what we do. The editor of this site, a combat-disabled Vietnam veteran who never ran from the enemy in peace or war, takes no salary or compensation for his work. Can't you at least help us a little bit when we have sacrificed so much for you?
