Senator McCaskill Proves To Be Long on ‘Wind,’ Short on Wisdom

After watching the video that accompanied a news release I received this afternoon from Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), I found the news release’s headline, “McCaskill Hears About Success of New Reform to Curb Military Sexual Assault,” incredibly misleading.

How was it misleading? The Show-Me State’s senior senator did more bloviating than she did listening. In fact, she rambled on for two and a half minutes about the so-called “reforms” in the military justice system’s approach to prosecuting alleged instances of sexual assault before Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond T. Odierno got a word in edgewise. And the video was only three minutes and two seconds long!

I guess that’s how she plays the game.

To learn more about the Senator McCaskill’s misguided push for reforms in the prosecution of cases of sexual assault cases — real and imagined — in the military, read my series, “War On Men in the Military.”

To learn more about one case, in particular, that resulted in the wrongful conviction and imprisonment of Army Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, order a copy of Three Days In August.

Military Justice System Headed Down Same Path as Healthcare

“If you like your military, you can keep your military.”

To my knowledge, President Barack Obama hasn’t said that yet — at least, not in public. But the military justice system seems to be headed down the same path as the nation’s healthcare system.

Unlike the debate regarding healthcare, the debate about the need for military justice reforms involves people in positions of power (i.e., President Obama and members of Congress) who have absolutely no concept of what is necessary in a military justice system, because they have never served. Led by people like Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), they advocate steps that will only worsen an already-flawed system.

One person who seems to understand what’s at stake is Patti Fruit, a resident of the Fayetteville, N.C., area near Fort Bragg. While I don’t agree with everything she wrote in a letter to the editor of the Fayetteville (N.C.) Observer about the headline-making outcome of Army Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair’s court-martial, I do agree with the following point she made:

“Yes, he admits to adultery with underlings, but why military women who have achieved rank did not have the honor and courage to report the general’s advances from the beginning is a question that needs addressing.”

What was the outcome of General Sinclair’s case? Sexual assault charges against him were dropped after political influence, in lieu of facts, was cited as the driving force behind a higher-ranking general’s decision to prosecute Sinclair.

One-hundred-eighty-degrees opposite Ms. Fruit, members of The New York Times Editorial Board revealed in a letter published today that they don’t have a clue about the military justice system.  Their lack of a “clue” is illustrated in the two paragraphs highlighted below:

The deal followed a stunning ruling by a military judge last week suggesting that by holding out for more severe punishment, and by rejecting an earlier plea deal, the senior Army officer overseeing the prosecution might have been improperly influenced by political considerations in bringing the most severe charges against the general because of a desire to show new resolve in the military against sexual misconduct. The prosecution had also been badly shaken by revelations that the general’s accuser may have lied under oath.

The episode offers a textbook example of justice gone awry, providing yet another reason to overhaul the existing military justice system, which gives commanding officers with built-in conflicts of interest — rather than trained and independent military prosecutors outside the chain of command — the power to decide which sexual assault cases to try.

The Times Editorial Board’s description of this week’s happenings in the case as “a textbook example of justice gone awry, providing yet another reason to overhaul the existing military justice system” is about as truthful as any of President Obama’s promises concerning the so-called Affordable Care Act (a.k.a., “ObamaCare”).

“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” the president said.  We all know how long that promise lasted.

“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” the president said.  Tell that to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who’ve lost coverage since ObamaCare went “live.”

“We’re going to work with employers to lower your premiums by up to $2,500 per family per year,” the president said.

Rather than telling us “If you like your military, you can keep your military,” it appears President Obama and his sycophants on The Left are determined to dismantle it without asking for input from anyone else and without regard for or our nation’s security.  In short, the military justice system seems destined toward the same fate as healthcare and, sadly, Republicans in Congress seem to lack the wherewithal (a.k.a., “spines”) to do anything about it.If Americans don’t stand up and demand their politicians stop meddling with the military, then they’ll deserve the military that’s left standing.  And it won’t be pretty.  Or, for that matter, an effective fighting force.

To learn more about sexual assault prosecutions in the military, read my series, “War On Men in the Military.”

To learn more about the case involving Army Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, order a copy of Three Days In August, the nonfiction book in which I chronicle his life story and wrongful conviction in a U.S. military courtroom in Germany.

War on Men in the Military: Cases Shockingly Similar

While reading a WRAL.com article today, I couldn’t help but notice similarities between the sexual assault prosecutions of Army Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair and Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, the man whose wrongful conviction is chronicled in my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August.

U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair, the deputy commanding general of support with the 82nd Airborne Division and Regional Command-South, speaks with Afghan media outside of a school near Forward Operating Base Howz-e-Madad in Kandahar, Afghanistan, Nov. 16, 2011. Sinclair was attending an open house, where Afghan students received backpacks full of school supplies. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Amanda Hils/Released)

One example can be found in the three paragraphs that follow an explanation of how the military judge in the case decided to prosecute despite a recommendation from the lead prosecutor that General Sinclair’s plea to a charge of adultery be accepted.  The example begins in paragraph four as follows:

The defense contends that the captain, who served with Sinclair in Iraq and Afghanistan, committed perjury in a January hearing about finding text messages form Sinclair on an old cellphone, making her a poor witness on which to build a case against the general.

The captain said in the January hearing that she came across the old phone in December and charged it up to see if there was anything on it that would affect Sinclair’s court-martial. A defense forensics expert contradicted her testimony, saying she had turned the phone on several times in the months before she said she found it packed in a box.

The defense argues in the motion that the Army continues to press the case only to support a get-tough policy against sex assault in the military.

Notice the word, perjury, and how a forensics expert proved it?  Apparently, perjury by a female in a military sexual assault case isn’t cause for concern.

In the case of Stewart, a highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran, several instances of perjury surfaced during and after his court-martial.

Read the reviews.

Read the reviews.

Two that surfaced during the trial involved a German police detective and a taxi driver whose memory issues are highlighted in the article, German Police Detective Has Memory Issues Like Accuser.

One arose during the pre-sentencing phase and involved the accuser offering a strange definition of “contact.”

Yet another was brought to the court’s attention by a long-time friend of the accuser who made a post-trial statement that should have netted Stewart a new trial.

I, for one, can’t wait to read the trial transcript if or when General Sinclair’s case reaches the trial phase.  Why?  Because I suspect it will be as chock full of half-truths, lies and innuendo as Stewart’s trial was as the War on Men in the Military continues.

UPDATE 3/16/2014 at 8:11 p.m. Central:  Sexual assault charges dropped against general after case tainted by political influence.

Military Officers Used As Pawns by U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill

Senior military officers are repeatedly being used as pawns in the political campaign that is U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill’s (D-Mo.) War on Men in the Military.

McCaskill News Release 1-17-14

In my inbox this morning, I received another news release from Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) as she wages her “War on Men in the Military.”

Via email today, I received yet another in a constant stream of news releases from the office of the Show-Me State’s senior senator in Washington.  An excerpt the news release appears below:

Former sex crimes prosecutor and U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill today met with Major General Jeffrey Snow, the new director of the Department of Defense Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office (SAPRO), to discuss implementing a series of aggressive, historic reforms addressing sexual assault that were passed into law last month.

McCaskill and Snow also addressed recent statistics that showed a 50 percent increase in reporting in the 2013 fiscal year. Advocates who successfully pushed for changes to the military justice system—including McCaskill—have near-universal agreement that increases in reporting of these crimes will represent progress in the effort to curb them.

“The numbers show that these reforms may already be starting to work, but we have to continue being vigilant in addressing these crimes,” said McCaskill, a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. “Maj. Gen. Snow understands that his job will be incredibly difficult, and he knows he will be under an enormous amount of pressure from me, my colleagues, and the American people to get this right. Retaining a limited role for commanders, while instituting these historic reforms, is the key to curbing sexual assaults in the military, and the key to getting justice for our nations heroes.”

IF all of the claims Senator McCaskill makes in today’s news release were true, then I might be inclined to support her campaign for military justice system reforms.  Unfortunately, however, they’re not!  Instead, they’re just as biased and full of misinformation as those made in a news release I received from her office via email three days ago (see photo below) and in entries on her website page dedicated to this topic.

Photo from Sen. McCaskill News Release 1-14-14.

This photo shows “Claire Bear” meeting earlier this week with Maj. Gen. Margaret Woodward, the outgoing head of the Air Force Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office, and Brig. Gen. Gina Grosso, who has been tasked with filling Woodward’s position.

IF Senator McCaskill and others of her ilk were willing to actually listen to any of the dozens of victims of the military justice system — men and women alike — who’ve contacted me after reading my book, Three Days In August, she would be shocked by the true stories they share.  And, hopefully, she would rethink her position.  So would you!

For a better understanding of the issues involved, I recommend you read two of my most-recent articles about the War on Men in the Military.

To order, click image above.

In one piece, I share the views of military defense attorney Richard Stevens as he drives home the point that “the military justice system is being turned into the military prosecution, or persecution, system in court-martial cases alleging rape and/or sexual assault (UCMJ Article 120).”

In another, I highlight a new book, The Whole Truth: The Tainted Prosecution of an American Fighter Pilot.  Written by retired Air Force Col. Bob Harvey, it dissects the wrongful conviction case involving Air Force Lt. Col. James H. Wilkerson III and how a three-star general did the right thing when he overturned that conviction.

If you want to read more about the ongoing efforts to degrade the military justice system, I recommend you read my Top 10 Military Justice System Stories of 2013 as well as a piece published 16 months ago in which an experience military defense attorney says he believes 90 percent of military sexual assault cases would be thrown out of civilian courts due to lack of evidence.

To learn the most-minute details about the wrongful prosecution and conviction of one of our nation’s most-elite warriors, add Three Days In August to your library today.

Finally, A Lawyer Makes Sense

In the first paragraph of a piece published two days ago, military defense attorney Richard Stevens drives home the point that “the military justice system is being turned into the military prosecution, or persecution, system in court-martial cases alleging rape and/or sexual assault (UCMJ Article 120).”  And he’s as familiar with the system as anyone after having worked in the system as both a JAG officer and civilian defense attorney.

Richard Stevens Mil Justice 1-10-14

Click image above to read post.

He goes on to point his legal finger at “lawmakers and senior government and military officials who care more about an inaccurate politically correct narrative than the fairness of the military justice system” before describing them as “conspiring to make continued changes to the system to ensure commanders and JAGs have no discretion, or at least don’t dare to exercise what little discretion they may ultimately retain.”

Moving forward, Stevens highlights how two Air Force lieutenant generals — Susan Helms and Craig A. Franklin — saw their three-start careers abruptly ended by elected officials engaged in allowing political correctness to run amok.

Rather than rehash Stevens’ piece in its entirety, however, I simply recommend you read it.

In addition, I recommend you read several pieces in my series, War on Men in the Military.

Finally, if you really want to boost your blood pressure, order a copy of my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August, in which I chronicle the life story of Army Sgt. 1st Class Kelly Stewart and reveal how his career as a highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran was ruined by this agenda-driven form of military justice.

WARNING:  Reading this book will make your blood boil.

New Book, New Victim Spawned by War on Men in the Military

The War on Men in the Military spawned a new book and a new victim in recent days, thanks largely to Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and her efforts to demonize people involved in the case of alleged sexual assault involving Air Force fighter pilot Lt. Col. James H. Wilkerson III.

NEW BOOK

To order, click image above.

To order, click image above.

Retired Air Force Col. Bob Harvey released his first book, The Whole Truth: The Tainted Prosecution of an American Fighter Pilot.

In 336 pages, Colonel Harvey reveals the lengths the military will go to appease politicians and aggressively prosecute sexual assault cases, even when the evidence doesn’t support a conviction or even going to trial.

More specifically, the former F-16 pilot and combat veteran focuses on details of the case in which Colonel Wilkerson was wrongly convicted and sentenced to one year in prison before his court-martial conviction was overturned by Air Force Lt. Gen. Craig A. Franklin, then commander of Third Air Force, who was performing his role as convening authority in the case. He also spotlights two key issues — no physical evidence and conflicting testimony — and points out how the Air Force ignored facts and used questionable tactics in a relentless pursuit of a conviction in the high-profile case.

The Whole Truth strikes me as similar to my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August, in which I chronicled the wrongful sexual-assault conviction of Army Special Forces Sgt. 1st Class Kelly Stewart, a highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran. Colonel Harvey puts the case against Colonel Wilkerson on trial and uses court-martial records to examine the story point by point and point out the wrongs against an officer who, despite having his conviction overturned, was forced into early retirement at the reduced rank of major.

I highly recommend you order a copy of The Whole Truth, read it, and tell your friends to do the same.

GENERAL RESIGNS, SENATOR CROWS

In announcing his retirement earlier this week, according to a report in Stars and Stripes, General Franklin was diplomatic and cited his belief that the public questioning of his judgment as a general court-martial convening authority had become “a distraction for the Air Force.”

Conversely, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) was anything but diplomatic in a news release I received via email yesterday about the general she had lambasted for months:

“Lt. Gen. Franklin’s decision to resign is the right one. His handling of sexual assault cases is the best possible illustration of why civilian review, elimination of commanders’ ability to overturn convictions, and so many other protections are included in our recent defense bill.”

To learn more about how the military command structure is being weakened via the overhaul of the military justice system by people like Senator McCaskill, follow my series, War on Men in the Military. The first post in that series, published March 7, 2013, can be found here.

Bob McCarty: Top 10 Military Justice System Stories of 2013

As a former Air Force public affairs officer and author of two books that involve military subject matter, I have an affinity for reporting on military-related topics and, in particular, the military justice system. Below are my Top 10 Military Justice posts of 2013:

Behenna Flag Officers#10. Flag Officers Back Supreme Court Brief Filed on Behalf of Lieutenant Michael Behenna — Thirty-seven retired high-ranking military officers, including a former Chief of Naval Operations, signed an Amicus Brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court Feb. 27 in support of Army Ranger 1st Lt. Michael Behenna. An Edmond, Okla., native, Lieutenant Behenna is serving 15-years behind bars at the U.S. Military Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., for killing a known al-Qaeda operative in Iraq.

#9. Comparing Messages Sent by Accusers — DoD War on Men — As part of my continuing series about the War on Men in the Military, I compared the handling of evidence in military court-martial cases to the handling of similar evidence during the prosecution of a civilian sexual assault case making news in Ohio.

Behenna Story 15-6#8. Army 15-6 Investigation Report Proves Elusive — Related to the Soldier whose case was highlighted in #10 above, I recalled details about my thusfar unsuccessful efforts to obtain a copy of the Army Regulation 15-6 Investigation Report prepared after Army Ranger 1st Lt. Michael Behenna shot and killed the known al-Qaeda operative in Iraq.

#7. Retired Air Force Nurse Likens Senator Claire McCaskill’s Actions to ‘Witch Hunt’ — I shared an unsolicited message I received from a retired Air Force officer about the involvement of Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) in a high-profile sexual assault case.

#6. Is DoD Waging War on Warriors? — I offered details about an Army general’s case and several others brought to my attention by readers of my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August, which chronicles the life and wrongful conviction of Army Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart on sexual assault-related charges.

Franklin Cases Online#5. USAF General Puts Sexual Assault Case Documents Online — I highlighted the fact that an Air Force three-star general showed he wasn’t going to back down to his detractors and made a plethora of documents related to the case mentioned in #7 above available to visitors on the Air Force Freedom of Information Act website.

#4. Senator Claire McCaskill Owes Air Force Officer An Apology — I offered another sad update on Senator “Claire Bear” McCaskill and her inexcusable actions, including the fact that she owes an Air Force officer an apology.

#3. Senator Claire McCaskill’s Reckless Effort to Undermine Military Justice System Continues — I highlighted the efforts of the aforementioned liberal senior senator from the Show-Me State seemingly aimed at destroying Air Force Lt. Gen. Craig A. Franklin.

Must-Read NDU#2. Must-Read Article About Military Sexual Assault Published by National Defense University — I pointed readers to a well-written must-read piece, Fostering Constructive Dialogue on Military Sexual Assault by Lindsay L. Rodman, that was published in Joint Force Quarterly 69 by National Defense University Press.

#1. Army Officer’s Attorneys File Supreme Court Petition — I offered details of how a new team of those legal experts filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of former Army Ranger 1LT Michael C. Behenna, the Soldier mentioned in #8 and #10 above and in more than 60 posts since June 4, 2009.

If you enjoyed these stories and others I shared during 2013, you’ll love reading my books. Be sure to add Three Days In August and THE CLAPPER MEMO to your libraries today! Both are available in paperback and ebook versions at Amazon.com.

Pushing Military Justice Reforms, ‘McCaskill really must be an idiot’

For months, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) has, along with a handful of her colleagues in the United States Senate, been waging a “War on Men in the Military,” pushing for changes to the U.S. Military Justice System that stand to take that system in the wrong direction if/when enacted.  Recently, a retired military officer* shared with me what he believes is Senator McCaskill’s strategy.

PBS NewsHour Senators 8-1-13“It’s pretty simple,” he wrote, “let’s start a brou-haha about a ‘problem’, convince the public the military is full of idiots and then slowly start taking away pieces and parts.”

On a specific issue involving the removal of Air Force Lt. Gen. Craig Franklin from a recent sexual assault case, my friend wrote more.

“McCaskill really must be an idiot,” he began.  “First, she publicly bashes Franklin for ‘going against the recommendation of his attorneys’ and then bashes him again for ‘going WITH the recommendation of his attorney.’

“Good golly!” he continued.  “This really is a mockery of justice, a mockery of command, and a mockery of a topic that didn’t begin yesterday.”

If the National Defense Authorization bill becomes law, a number of Sen. Barbara Boxer’s (D-Calif.) Article 32 reforms will be implemented and will change the Uniform Code of Military Justice alongside the provisions below:

• Stripping military commanders of their ability to overturn jury convictions;

• Requiring civilian review if a commander declines to prosecute a case;

• Assigning victims their own independent legal counsel to protect their rights and fight for their interests;

• Mandating dishonorable discharge for anyone convicted of sexual assault;

• Criminalizing retaliation against victims who report a sexual assault; and

• Eliminating the statute of limitations in rape and sexual assault cases.

TDIA_Promo_Photo-300x224Ask anyone — without a political agenda, that is — whose ever served in a command position in the military, and I think you’ll find the majority in staunch opposition to these provisions.

Listen to any of the dozens of victims of the military justice system — men and women alike — who’ve contacted me after reading my book, Three Days In August, and you’ll be shocked by the true stories they share.

Heck, simply reading what you find on Senator McCaskill’s “Military Justice” web page will tell you all you need to know about this dangerous agenda masquerading as a campaign against sexual assault in the military.

Shame on you, Claire, and shame on all of the senators — Democrat and Republican — working with you on this effort!

NOTE FOR ST. LOUIS-AREA READERS:  REMINDER: ‘Wheel-In” Protest at Claire McCaskill’s St. Louis Office Saturday at 11 a.m. Central.

*The name of this retired military officer, now serving as an employee of a military contractor, is being withheld for fear of persecution by his employer and/or government.

Casualties of ‘War on Men in the Military’ Offered Tests of Truth

Since the October 2011 release of my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August, I’ve been contacted by dozens of individuals who’ve shared troubling stories about cases involving either themselves or a close family member (i.e., husband, father, uncle, brother, nephew or friend). Today, I invite male veterans of the U.S. military — who, like those who’ve contacted me already, consider themselves casualties of the War on Men in the Military — to take advantage of a unique opportunity to proclaim their innocence.

WC Soldiers 3-7-13Who? Most of the people who’ve contacted me did so after they or a loved one became the target of prosecution following alleged sexual assaults, alleged violations of the Rules of Engagement in combat zones or some other alleged breaches of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

What?  Those who accept my offer will have to agree, in writing, to submit to an exam aimed at determining whether or not they are being deceptive about the subject of the crime for which they have been or are being prosecuted.  In addition, they will have to agree to allow the findings of their exams — good or bad — to be made public.  This ensures that a sense of real jeopardy is involved.

How? Unlike the process that allowed people like Aldrich Ames and Edward Snowden to obtain employment and high-level security clearances inside our nation’s intelligence agencies, this exam will not involve the use of a polygraph or polygraph examiner; instead, it will involve the use of a non-polygraph credibility assessment technology identical to that currently being used by professionals at more than 1,800 law enforcement agencies nationwide. In addition, each exam will be conducted by an examiner certified in the use of the technology.

Why? I’m making this offer, because I want to give men who believe they are being unjustly prosecuted the opportunity to share their stories. Worth noting: While these exams will be provided at no cost to participants, donations to help cover the costs of these exams (minimum $400 each not including travel and lodging expenses for myself and the examiner) will be appreciated. Click on Tip Jar at right to make a donation.

How can you learn more about the non-polygraph technology that will be used? Order a copy of my latest book, THE CLAPPER MEMO (May 2013). Available in paperback and ebook versions at Amazon.com, it comes highly recommended.

NOTE: Individuals interested in taking an exam should send an email to me at BobMcCartyWrites (at) gmail (dot) com with “INNOCENCE” in the subject line. In the body of your email, please include a brief synopsis about your case and your contact information. Please DO NOT include any attachments as they will be ignored.
