BREAKTHROUGH IN COL SABOW
It was just four paragraphs under the heading “Other Matters” dealing with Marine Corps operations for next year, but each word reverberated at Quantico like a shot from a 105mm Howitzer.
Buried in the hundreds of pages that comprise the 2004 Defense Authorization Act, was the order that the mysterious death of Col. John Sabow, USMC, be reviewed and that “experts outside the Defense Department” investigate the medical and forensic evidence from the 12 year-old shotgun death.
Thanks to California Congressman Duncan Hunter, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, the Marine Corps will no longer have absolute control on what is revealed by the new probe. And that could open a Pandora’s Box when the cover-up of Sabow’s murder is revealed.
More than 12 years has gone by since the colonel’s body was discovered outside his quarters at El Toro MCAS in California, a shotgun by his side. Evidence the Marine Corps chose to ignore showed Sabow did not commit “suicide.” For all these years, the Corps refused to re-examine the case. Politicians and most of the establishment media declined to get involved. Until now.
“This is something I have prayed for so long,” said Dr. David Sabow from his home in South Dakota. “My brother was murdered and his name blackened all this time. Now, at last, we may get to the bottom of what really happened!
A HEARTFELT “THANK-YOU” FOR OUR HELP
Sabow had nothing but praise for
Thank YOU, Dr. Sabow. For it was your undying love for your brother, your belief that the Marine Corps covered up what really happened, and the tremendous amount of research and investigation you put into this case that kept Col. Sabow’s death from being swept under the rug.
MURDER DISGUISED AS A “SUICIDE”
We at MilitaryCorruption.com did a six-month investigation of the evidence and came to the conclusion Col. Sabow was slain by those he knew. That a shotgun had been placed in his mouth and a homicide made to look like a "suicide."
Was the highly decorated Vietnam pilot ready to “blow the whistle” on drug-running at El Toro MCAS? Did his killers have to silence him to save themselves?
CONGRESSMAN DUNCAN HUNTER – A MAN OF HONOR
It is so very important that Rep. Hunter (R-Calif.) has laid the groundwork for an honest investigation into Col. Sabow’s death. If only we had more lawmakers in Congress with such courage and integrity, who dare to stand up for the truth.
Now, none other than Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is required, under the bill’s provisions, to submit his conclusions in this review – along with those of “independent experts” – no later than 180 days after the Appropriations Bill is passed.
Dr. David Sabow and the Sabow family may finally obtain “justice” after a long and grueling fight. Col. Sabow’s murder will hopefully be avenged, and those responsible for his death and the subsequent cover-up, hunted down and punished.
COL SHUE CASE ANOTHER “COVER-UP”
The Sabow case has ramifications far beyond the Marine Corps. Many homicides, covered-up or written off as “suicides” may now get a second look because, we predict, when the new probe of Col. Sabow’s death is concluded, we will know who his killers were.
One of the current cases affected by this, is the cover-up in the Col. Philip Shue death in Texas, which could bring down, not only the local Air Force Office of Special Investigations commander, but the district attorney and medical examiner as well.
For years, the CID, OSI and NCIS have routinely “written off” suspicious deaths as “suicides” for a variety of reasons. Now, once a high-profile death is exposed as a homicide, the floodgates will open and perhaps lead to Congressional hearings.
Let’s put them on television and the Pentagon on notice that we will not tolerate “cover-ups” of suspicious deaths in the future.
