How refreshing it is that we can write about an honorable Air Force general, a man who puts his country ahead of politics or personal gain.
That man is Gen. William L. Shelton, head of Space Command at Peterson AFB.
The 1976 Air Force Academy graduate may have fallen on his sword with his bombshell testimony before the House Armed Services Committee, but a grateful nation will always remember him for the good and decent man he is. Shelton put America's security ahead of selling out his integrity by backing a project that could have, in the general's expert opinion, impaired our country's military GPS system.
CAMPAIGN DOLLARS COME BEFORE NATIONAL SECURITY
Why are we not surprised that the Obama White House would engage in such sleazy tactics? Yes, we know Hussein said his administration would be "the most transparent ever" when he ran for office, but that was just another lie. When one of his Democrat money-bag cronies comes up with a plan that could endanger every last one of us, it shouldn't be a shock.
Here's the big bucks deal. Multi-millionaire Philip Falcone, who's sent nearly $100,000 Obama's way, wants to fast-track his proposal that "LightSquared," his Virginia-based satellite and communications company, gets a huge government contract to install a nationwide phone system to increase broadband for commercial use. That system's powerful signals, Gen. Shelton fears, could easily interfere with the military's GPS.
Apparently the White House freaked out when a copy of Shelton's remarks was leaked to them. The word went out that it would be nice if the general would make it seem he was favorable to the deal. All he had to do was make a few "changes" in his speech, soft-pedaling the risk to America's defense and saying the Pentagon would "try" to resolve such concerns within 90 days.
No dice. Gen. Shelton would not prostitute himself.
NORTH AND SCHWARTZ PYGMIES COMPARED TO SHELTON
Can you imagine the groveling Norton Schwartz or his puppet-master, bully-boy and Jill Metzger protector Gen. Gary North showing such a degree of honor and integrity? All Obama has to do with them is say JUMP and they reply: "How far, how wide and how high?" To them, Air Force Core Values are just words on a piece of paper. To Gen. Shelton, the words "honor, duty, country" really mean something.
God bless him, and God bless (and protect) America.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: We realize this story will anger the Kool-Aide drinkers who still worship Obama and think the Democrats can do no wrong. Let us remind you that we here at MilitaryCorruption.com have been far more critical of Republicans like the megalomaniac Donald Rumsfeld, war profiteer Dick "Halliburton" Cheney, and dim-witted Bush, than their current idol in the White House. We're not saying Obama knowingly would cripple our nation's defenses in exchange for campaign dollars, but is it true that he once owned stock in LightSquared? Why does he continue to operate like a Chicago political-machine thug while wrapping himself in a cloak of self-righteousness? That act is wearing thin.]
