AND THE GENERALS - HOW POWERFUL
© 2007 MilitaryCorruption.com
It pays to have friends in high places when you get in trouble, and Maj. Jill Metzger is no exception.
She played her politics like a pro, running beside Gen. John D. W. Corley (up until a few days ago, vice chief-of-staff of the Air Force) in the morning when he did his laps at Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona.
That was not that many years ago. Now Corley wears four stars on his shoulders and has enormous influence within the Air Force.
Observers got their nose out of joint to see such a junior officer successfully sucking up to the then-wing commander. "They were seen many times together in the O-Club," recalled an MCC confidential informant. "Mrs. Corley (since divorced) was not exactly pleased."
Jill worked big projects for the general, we are told, both at the CGOC and deployment processing center. They were always around each other.
Our sources say Corley continued to "mentor" his super-achiever female officer, now a captain in Germany. "He visited her at her unit, which caused quite a stir, while she was an executive officer and he was in Europe on TDY."
Now, we're not saying Corley had anything more than a platonic relationship with the ambitious and savvy young officer on the way up, but it's entirely possible - fast forward to the present - he was willing and able to "pull some strings" to help his old pal Jill once she got in the mess in Kyrgyzstan.
A white male officer or enlisted person in the same predicament would have been in a very precarious position, but Metzger had great connections, and Corley wasn't the only brass hat she could call on for help.
GEN. NORTH TO THE RESCUE AT MANAS AFB
MilitaryCorruption.com has learned that none other than CENTAF commander, Gen. Gary North, was on the scene and smoothed the way when Maj. Metzger returned to Manas AFB Sept. 8, 2006 after her three- day AWOL or abduction, depending on your point of view.
"She was brought on and put through the search pit as anyone else would be," a member of the base security forces told us. "There were no signs of any struggle on her. No marks from any beatings or bruising, absolutely nothing!"
This is especially interesting, since Daddy Metzger, the retired colonel, told Air Force TIMES that his daughter "was beaten up pretty bad" and at one point in her so-called abduction, "had a rope placed around her neck." That's before she supposedly "overpowered" her guard, ran 35 or 40 miles barefoot and landed on a local's doorstep in the village of Kant, some miles from the store which she disappeared from in Bishkek.
And the dog ate my homework.
"Gen. North was there when she came in," the airman continued. "He gave me and another guard his (three-star) coin and cautioned us to keep quiet about what we had seen - not to talk to anyone, especially the press."
Hmmmm. Naysayers and apologists will counter: "Oh, well, nothing to see here, let's move on. The general was only doing what all brass hats do when there is a potential for embarrassment. What's wrong with that?
But, why would the CENTAF commander involve himself at that level? And what did he know that he feared the "news media" might get wind of? After all, Jill had just returned to U.S. control that day, and if her tale of "derring-do" was indeed truthful, the Air Force had a heroine on their hands. Of course, maybe North already knew her story was false and the cover-up had begun.
What we do know for sure is that it's been a long, long time since early September 2006 and the Air Force has yet to make an official statement on what really happened. The fact they have not decorated Metzger, for what would be in any military branch, an outstanding example of "escape and evasion" says it all.
That such a "cover-up" could be accomplished
is primarily due to the high-level participants involved as well as a
politically-correct "mainstream media," fearful of ruffling
feminist feathers by criticizing two-time Air Force marathon winner
Stars and Stripes arrived late to the dance, but we welcome them anyway.
They scored an interview with Daddy Metzger recently that was most revealing. The retired colonel actually confirmed that his darling daughter had been diagnosed with "PTSD" and was going out the door on a temporary disability retirement - at least until she can be "re-evaluated" in 18 months or so. Very interesting.
Readers of MilitaryCorruption.com will recall that we predicted this would be the game plan back in November of 2006. Jill can claim the "ordeal" of her "abduction" caused her to "suffer" from PTSD, not a physical ailment that needs to manifest itself visibly, like a shot off arm or a missing foot. Our returning vets from Iraq and Afghanistan, please take note.
The Air Force has never used the term PTSD in relation
to their female major, because they know that could infuriate genuinely
suffering "combat" veterans who actually deserve money for
disability compensation. Maybe Daddy Metzger, like Mommy Metzger
with the "18-mos leave of absence" boo-boo, has misspoken.
Hello, Air Force PAO Office. You better get Jill's parents
on the same page with you before they say any more.
Actually we are "guilty" of causing Jill's PTSD. Yeah, that's right. When the major was sitting at her desk down at Moody at her no-work position, accompanied by her minders to make sure no one spoke to the marathon winner, she clicked on MilitaryCorruption.com and had a cow! Her eyes bugged out and tongue fell clear to the floor.
"Those bastards at MCC are on to me," she shrieked! "I'm going to have to claim PTSD even though I've never been under enemy fire. Yeah, that's the ticket. I'll score some $3,000 a month tax-free money. That'll ease my financial discomfort at having to slip out the back door before doing the required 20 years that qualifies me for a regular retirement pension. One dollar is as good as another when it's already in your back pocket!"
Now, the above is clearly a "satire." But perhaps there's an element of truth in it, after all. We may never know unless Jill takes us up on our $100,000 offer in exchange for her exclusive story. We'll allow her to write it uncensored and she's welcome to correct whatever facts we've got "wrong."
Yes, we are afraid the only real "trauma"
Metzger has suffered is in knowing her "story" is being questioned
after all. July 27 is the new effective date of her TDRL
- yes, we have the papers, OSI - and if you want to know how we got
them, you can go to hell!
In a way, you have to feel sad for Kent Miller over at Air Force TIMES. One of these days, he's going to realize that if he'd just done some real "investigative journalism" in the beginning, like MCC and now Stars and Stripes did, the credibility of his newspaper would be a lot higher than it is today. Playing "nice" with the Pentagon and scoring points by a blackout of any mention of MilitaryCorruption.com - remember when we offered to share our info with you(?) - has blown up in your face.
We note you finally published a Jill Metzger-related letter in the TIMES after weeks of silence. It probably didn't end up in the "circular file" with all the others - angry readers sent us copies here - because the writer didn't criticize you or mention us. That's OK. We're content to keep on digging. And when we or another media outlet breaks this story wide open, do you think you might be able to give us credit for what we've done? That would be nice. And professional.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: Thank
you, dear readers, for the hundreds of e-mails we got when we asked
for INTEL on the Maj. Jill Metzger cover-up. But we still need
your input. If you know something you think we should be aware
of, contact us at once at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you. We welcome Mommy or Daddy Metzger and certainly daughter
Jill to these pages to make any statement they wish. This offer
is made in the interest of freedom of the press and fair play.]
