"NOT GUILTY!" CADET CALLAHAN BEATS "RAPE"
Air Force Academy Cadet Sean Callahan can breath a huge sigh of relief, and we at MilitaryCorruption.com can celebrate another victory. A court-martial, which never should have happened in the first place, has resulted in the 22 year-old first classman being acquitted on a "rape" charge that could have sent the aspiring USAF officer to the Leavenworth DB for the rest of his life.
Just three days ago, we reported the start of the "politically-correct" proceedings and condemned the brass for putting the cadet through an unnecessary hell.
We reported that his "victim," a female classmate who called her alleged attacker "a good guy" and said she did not want to press charges during Callahan's Article 32 hearing, never filed a complaint or called out to her nearby sleeping room-mate for "help."
The woman cadet, having a good deal of honor and integrity, stood her ground in the face of a "mad-dog" OSI investigation, which was determined to not only kick Callahan out of the Academy in his final year, but put him behind bars with real killers and criminals.
PUTTING THE "SPOTLIGHT" ON A
MilitaryCorruption.com, read in the Pentagon 365 days a year, and also by influential members of the civilian news media, blasted this circus for what it was. And we'd do so again.
The fortunate cadet, who did show poor judgment by drinking to excess, will get a reprimand and be restricted to the Colorado Springs campus for one month. That sure beats his life being ruined by being hauled off to the pen in leg irons!
Congratulations to the officer panel who made this sensible decision. We hope Callahan has a long and productive career as an Air Force officer. He dodged a bullet. And MCC is proud of the role we played in this happy turn of events.
We've got a small gaggle of critics out there who like to accuse us of blowing our own horn too often. Well, losers, get a life! We have something to be proud of, as "e-mail kudos" pour in from everywhere after Callahan's "not guilty" verdict on the phony "rape" charge. Sometimes justice does prevail. It did in this case.
