Our Military "Leaders" are anything but!
America's Armed Forces are being destroyed from within.

He is an award-winning combat photographer who stands accused of trying to pick up women in the public affairs office at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, and for that prosecutors wanted to put him in prison for 130 years.
* GEEZUS F--KING CHRIST...
* FOLKS. MAKE NO MISTAKE. THESE PEOPLE ARE DELIBERATELY TRYING TO DESTROY OUR MILITARY FROM THE INSIDE.
The prosecutorial zeal was so great that an Air Force officer appointed to investigate the case said the piled-up charges were combined to “artificially exaggerate the criminality of the accused,” who often was simply “socially maladroit and crass.”
* AND DON'T FOR A MOMENT THINK ANY OF US ARE SAFE IF SOMEONE IN AUTHORITY WANTS TO "GO AFTER US." THIS CRAP ISN'T HAPPENING JUST IN THE MILITARY, FOLKS.
This is a glimpse into the new U.S. Armed Forces and its gender wars. It is a slice of military life stemming from the Pentagon’s order in 2013 to erase all sexual harassment and, to enforce it, staff the ranks with an advocacy bureaucracy to empower victims and make sure complaints are filed.
* AGAIN... FOLKS... THIS IS D*E*L*I*B*E*R*A*T*E AND P*U*R*P*O*S*E*F*U*L!
The accused is Tech. Sgt. Aaron D. Allmon II.
Sgt. Allmon, who denies wrongdoing, goes on trial Monday. The setting is a general court-martial, the military’s most severe, a felony arena. He is charged with unwanted sexual contact with four women: three Air Force and one civilian. The case does not involve rape or what the public might consider overt sexual assault or what could be defined as fondling.
The Times investigated the Allmon case not to assess guilt or innocence. The trial promises to be a series of “he said, she said.” (Sgt. Allmon denies saying many of the things attributed to him.) The Times wanted to examine one major battle, in a North Dakota courtroom, in the broader global war Mr. Hagel announced more than two years ago.
What strikes Sgt. Allmon’s supporters from the start is the fervor with which Air Force Office of Special Investigations and prosecutors went after him.
When the Air Force convened a pretrial hearing, known as an Article 32, in December, the government had stacked so many charges against the enlisted man that, if convicted, he faced over a century in prison.
On Sgt. Allmon’s legal team is Jeffrey Addicott, a former Army judge advocate who is now a law professor at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio. The lead civilian defender is Virginia Hermosa, who practices law in Austin and has served as a prosecutor for the Texas attorney general.
Addicott expresses astonishment that the Air Force is trying Allmon in a felony court instead of seeking other administrative or lesser judicial options. As a comparison, he notes that the hearing officer in the case of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who is charged with the serious offense of desertion for abandoning his [post] on the battlefield, recommended a special court-martial, the lowest level, for misdemeanors.
* AGAIN. PEOPLE. SHEEPLE. IDIOTS! WAKE THE F--K UP!
“The full weight of the military chain of command has come down on Aaron because the chain of command has abandoned justice and elected expediency,” Mr. Addicott said.
* FOLKS... AS I'VE BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG, THE MILITARY HAS BEEN TOTALLY COMPROMISED AND THE COMMAND STRUCTURE OF OUR ARMED FORCES IS NOW AS CORRUPT AND VENIAL AS CAPITAL HILL OR THE WHITE HOUSE.
“Because of the hypersensitivity associated with real sexual assault cases, the Air Force in particular has overreacted against Aaron in a manner that is absolutely an injustice but is also degrading the esprit de corps of unit cohesion all across the military. Even assuming all the charges are true, which they are not, this conduct as charged would warrant non-judicial punishment, not the highest level of action at a general court-martial where Aaron could lose all his retirement benefits and go to jail.”
