Oh, What a Tangled Web We Weave….

| June 17, 2019

This just gets deeper and deeper into something like quicksand.

While I’m trying to figure out who started what, and why, this latest report from Navy Times includes a brief paragraph midway down, telling us that they do not know who sent them documents on this business.

https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2019/06/16/with-a-new-team-of-prosecutors-the-navy-takes-a-final-shot-at-seal-eddie-gallagher/

Right now, this ‘he said, she said’ stuff has become a quagmire that should not have happened. It’s entirely possible that the members of that SEAL team felt that Gallagher was some sort of bully and wanted to get even. Those things do happen, and I know quite well that in a hot spot, tempers flare and people who want results can get rough.

The suggestion now is that some Team guys said ‘this/that/other’ and now have to stick with it or get canned, and they know it, as several have recanted what they originally said. It also appears, from the article, that NCIS did not follow proper procedure when interviewing the witnesses or complainants or whatever they are now.

Read the whole article and make up your own mind. There is something underhanded going on in many spots here.

The truth is out there….somewhere! Will we ever know the whole, true story? Prolly not. Has this horse been beat enough? Prolly so!

I suggest the Navy recall to active duty retired Rear Admiral Albert Jethro “A.J.” Chedwiden former Judge Advocate General of the Navy until his retirement in May 2004. AJ was a SEAL and JAGC officer and ultimately the only flag officer with unimpeachable credibility to bring to Chief Gallagher’s court proceedings.

Even though RADM Chedwiden is a fictional character I still think he would be best able to render fair and impartial justice in Chief Gallagher’s trial.

This judicial proceeding so far is criminal in and of itself and serves only to weaken the military justice system’s guarentee of due process for all accused.

I think some people have been doing naughty things they shouldn’t have and in the end and hopefully, shortly, Chief Gallagher will stroll away from all of this unscathed but some other bad boys will get their pee pees smacked.

The further this goes the more I regard NICS and JAG as a whorehouse.

Worse than Tailhook?

Not worse, but different, Tox. Tailhook was Carrier Air Wing Pilots and NFOs acting like frat boy idiots. It was so bad the Chief of Naval Personnel, ADM. Boorda, came all the way to Europe to give a rousting all hands ass chewing. I had no idea WTF he was talking about at the time, but it became clear later on. I was more insulted than trained.

The Gallagher issue, I don’t know. I do know that I pissed off a couple TAH members for doubting NCIS’s credibility, and I haven’t seen them back to offer an apology.
There’s no real forensic evidence, so the case hangs on witness testimony, or he said-she said.

Effing lawers and federal cops. Why would anyone expect otherwise these days?

Now we all know why the 30K emails were deleted.
Obviously there was something in them that would totally incriminate the JAG officers….

Well, at least someone put that POS terrorist to good use as a training aid. Outstanding initiative.

Yeah, good use of a training aid, but I draw the line at CPR.

Breitbart has a lengthy article with extensive quotes from his wife and brother.

I’m of the belief that there’s three sides to every story; his side, her side, and the truth. Now I’ve heard the defense’s side, it’ll be interesting to see what comes out in court from the prosecution. Certainly seems like they built a case out of whole cloth and uncorroborated statements from third hand parties.

I’d like to think that the military CJ system isn’t this dysfunctional and/or crooked. Only time will tell I guess.

Thanks Obama….
