Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair, Up for Court Martial?

When a one-star general (in charge of logistics) has a pet name for his female captains (like Panda), it is not a good sign. Truly, the facts in the possible court-martial of Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair are all harrowing.

BG Jeffrey A. Sinclair

Two quotes stand out to me. His aide, Panda, saying: In a (expletive)-up way I still love him, she admitted. I don’t want him to be mad at me.

And then Alexander the Great with this: My logisticians are a humorless lot … they know if my campaign fails, they are the first ones I will slay.

The bottom-line: Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair faces possible courts-martial on charges that include forced sex, pornography, violating an order, alcohol use, engaging in inappropriate relationships, misusing a government travel charge card, and conduct unbecoming an officer. 

Yes, this man vastly outranks me. But, if found guilty, I say drum him out of the United States military with nothing. No rank and send him to Leavenworth. No retirement. Nothing. We have had a stream of dishonorable officers recently and we need to make the pain more painful. One thing everyone understands: loss of money, loss of prestige. It is better to be an honorable private than a dishonorable general.

For more details on the particulars: Female officers sent nude photos to general. The pictures were not even of the female in question. She just chopped the heads off random naked shots. After the general begged for ‘em. A general. . .

Bad Lieutenant

With the exception of a random, wacky blogpost, I endeavor to hold up the good lieutenant name for fellow El Tee bar-holders worldwide. I can’t say the same for this alleged dirtbag:

The accusations read like something from a summer action flick.

The plot: members of one cartel plan to raid another cartel taking their drugs and killing their rivals.

But this story has an unusual twist, because it involves a lieutenant in the U.S. Army who was allegedly willing to work with Zeta drug runners and to execute a murder-for-hire plot.

The Justice Department today announced charges against Kevin D. Corley, who, during much of the alleged plot, was a first lieutenant in the Army and a veteran of the war in Afghanistan.

Thanks 1LT Corley. You not only rolled on your fellow LTs, you turned on your country. Was it worth it? Enjoy breaking large rocks up into little ones over at Leavenworth. Punk.
