Once you've lost your credibility, there's little worthwhile left. How sad that the once-respected Air Force TIMES has fallen to such a sorry state. But the "politically-correct" newspaper, owned by the same "unbiased" folks who bring you USA TODAY, has sunk to a new low with its latest unabashed "valentine" to Air Force Chief-of-Staff, Gen. T. Michael Moseley.

Slugged breathlessly as "EXCLUSIVE" is a long feature article/interview complete with sidebar story and laudatory editorial. The whole thing takes up three full pages and reads like a Pentagon press release. Who knows? Maybe it is.

Erik Holmes is the "writer," the same fellow the TIMES assigned to their non-coverage of the Maj. Jill Metzger cover-up [see "related stories box" at end of this article]. So we were not surprised to read he wrote - get this - that "Moseley earns high marks for leadership style from those who know and watch him closely.

"Halfway through his tenure, a picture is emerging of what kind of chief of staff Moseley is and how well he has stepped up to the enormous task he was assigned," Holmes gushes.

When the TIMES staff writer is done telling us what a great guy the scandal-plagued top brass hat is, he quotes a defense expert like Loren Thompson of the Lexington Institute who exclaims: "Gen. Moseley is the most forward-looking, articulate chief-of-staff the Air Force has had in at least 20 years."

Thompson goes on to tell us the general is "just a very easy person to like," and exudes the Air Force chief-of-staff is also "a gifted communicator who has established a reputation as a straight-shooter."

Hello?

Is this guy Moseley the same "straight-shooter" who engineered the Metzger cover-up and made sure - can you spell "command influence?" - the pampered and well-connected two-time Air Force Marathon winner got a lucrative 100% "disability" pension for PTSD based upon her little-believed tale of "kidnapping" and escape in Kyrgyzstan?

READERS OF AIR FORCE TIMES DISGUSTED BY MOSELEY "PUFF-PIECE"

Air Force TIMES fails it's readers, thousands of whom "click on" to MilitaryCorruption.com, when it prints such public relations pap as "Moseley's Progress."

E-mail has poured into MCC from disgusted Air Force active duty and retired personnel who are outraged and insulted by the sycophantic tone of the article. One pensioned master sergeant, Rich Giddens of California, was so incensed, he suggested we "send the TIMES a new set of knee pads." Sorry, sarge. No can do. We don't have any such thing lying around. Our motto here is "FIGHTING FOR THE TRUTH . . . EXPOSING THE CORRUPT." And that's just what we do.

We've received many complaints over the past few months that the TIMES tosses critical letters to the editor about the paper running only the "official line" on the Metzger mess into the wastebasket. The dissed Air Force men and women have vowed never to write in again.

Save your time and the $2.75 you have to fork over for the TIMES at the BX. MilitaryCorruption.com is free of charge and you're guaranteed that we have no sacred cows to favor. We always "tell it like it is."

THE TOUGH "QUESTIONS" AIR FORCE TIMES DOESN'T DARE TO ASK

Since the TIMES isn't about to ask their pal Moseley any tough questions, we thought we'd offer some suggestions.

What follows below is our idea of a REAL journalistic interview, not a sickening "puff-piece" designed to gain the TIMES more "brownie points" from the powerful people they are supposed to objectively cover.

( 1 ) - General Moseley, you like to preach about Air Force "core values" all the time. Do you think you have adequately demonstrated them yourself by your conduct, especially in the Metzger case?

( 2 ) - Why hasn't the Air Force made any statement at all about the major's so-called "abduction" and "escape" in the 12 months that have elapsed since that time?

( 3 ) - If Jill Metzger actually performed all the heroics she claims in her bizarre statement, why haven't you awarded her the Air Force Cross, or any decoration for that matter, recognizing her courageous "escape" from her evil captors? She's a female, and you - being one of the most "politically-correct" brass hats around - should have no problem heaping praise and awards upon such an outstanding officer. Unless, of course, her "story" is a lie, and you know it.

( 4 ) - Is it possible that you or several of your top generals might be "compromised" by something Metzger knows, thus the pampered treatment since her return from "captivity?"

( 5 ) - Does the fact Jill's daddy is a retired Air Force colonel and her hubby an OSI agent have anything to do with the two-time AIr Force Marathon winner getting favored treatment?

( 6 ) - How much did it cost the American taxpayer searching for Metzger those three days; in increased rental charges for Manas AFB after the nation of Kyrgyzstan was slandered by the major's accusations; for the female officer from the Pentagon who acted as Jill's "minder" all those months at Moody AFB; and did you have any input into Metzger's scoring a fat "disability" pension allegedly based upon the "trauma" of her "ordeal" overseas?

( 7 ) - Have you visited the wounded at Walter Reed lately - men and women grievously injured in Iraq and Afghanistan - who unfortunately have not received a nearly $3000 a month (tax-free) bonanza like Jill has, despite they being genuinely disabled as a result of combat duty? Do you think that "double-standard" is fair, and what about it's egregious effect on morale?

( 8 ) - Do you think you have treated the rank-and-file men and women of the Air Force with proper respect by concealing what happened in the Metzger case and covering-up the real facts?

( 9 ) - Would you have sat down for an interview with MilitaryCorruption.com as quickly as you did with Air Force TIMES if you knew we would be asking you questions the men and women of the Air Force really want to know the answers to?

There's one thing we can guess is true. No way would Moseley risk talking to a reporter who he didn't think would genuflect in his direction. At least it seems that is the case. We don't know for sure. But we do know this.

Thousands of Air Force personnel were dissed and insulted by the propaganda piece the TIMES ran in their September 24 issue. Let's hope editor Kent Miller realizes in the future his newspaper would sell more copies at the BX if he kept the "suck-up" articles out and instead covered Air Force news "without fear or favor."

If and when he starts doing that, MilitaryCorruption.com will be first in line to commend him.
