After 4 Years, Air Force STILL Won't Say What Happened To Major.

AIR FORCE PAO STONEWALLS AND REFUSES COMMENT ON JILL METZGER COVER-UP - LATEST COMMUNICATION FROM AIR FORCE PRESS DESK SAYS "CANNOT COMMENT BECAUSE OF PRIVACY ISSUES" - FOUR YEARS LATER, AND STILL THE PENTAGON PROTECTS THE PAMPERED ONE - NO COMMENT ON FAKED ABDUCTION OR LUCRATIVE "DISABILITY" PENSION - RE-WRITE THE RULEBOOK: FOR SOME LUCKY PEOPLE, CRIME DOES PAY

© 2010 MilitaryCorruption.com

By MAJ GLENN MacDONALD, USAR (Ret.)

Four years ago this week, a female U.S. Air Force officer disappeared in far-off Kyrgyzstan, and many Americans feared for her life. Yellow ribbons were tied to trees, prayers were uttered for her safety, and family members made the rounds of the TV talk shows. The major's face appeared on newspaper front pages around the world.

Had Maj. Jill Metzger been kidnapped or killed? Was she the target of some terrorist group? What happened? We soon found out - sort of.

Three days later, after Metzger vanished from a Bishkek department store, she surfaced again with a strange tale that rivaled "THE DOG ATE MY HOMEWORK."

Turning up at a farmhouse in Kant, within sight of a Russian air base outside the Kyrgyz capitol, Metzger claimed she'd been "abducted" by strangers and escaped her captors after "over-powering" a guard and running barefoot, 30 miles, to freedom. She failed to elaborate on just how the 90-pound female subdued the alleged guard - whether he was armed - how she got loose - and why the nude American officer wasn't shot at or pursued by her so-called "kidnappers."

Local police almost immediately began to doubt Metzger's story and suspected, for whatever reason, the Air Force major had "orchestrated" her own disappearance.

AN UNBELIEVABLE TALE THAT FELL APART ALMOST FROM THE BEGINNNING

Kemilbek Kiyazov, chief of the Chuysic Region Police Dept., was quoted as saying Metzger's version of events "just doesn't add up." He said "many contradictions and bizarre claims" made by the female officer caused him to doubt her story from the start.

For example, Kiyazov said Metzger claimed she'd been "robbed" of a necklace by her "kidnappers," but failed to explain why they hadn't touched her expensive wedding ring she was still wearing on her finger.

The investigator said security cameras in the Tzum department store in Bishkek showed Metzger riding an escalator alone to the ground floor, then calmly walking from the building into a back parking lot. "There was no sign or indication she was in any trouble," Kiyazov said.

This was confirmed much later by an American military intelligence officer, disgusted with "the Metzger cover-up," who contacted me in my capacity as editor-in-chief of MilitaryCorruption.com. He said he had seen store security film that had not been previously disclosed in the media, which showed the major walking straight to a minibus or van parked outside and getting in the vehicle. "There was no sign of struggle or abduction," he said. The source guessed she "knew the occupants."

"BOMB" IN HER BACK POCKET

Metzger told U.S. Embassy officials in Kyrgyzstan that "someone" had put a "bomb" in her back pocket and she "felt as if I were in a trance." Yet the security camera films show no bulge in the rear pocket of Metzger's tight jeans. Also, not the slightest indication of duress in the major's demeanor as she casually made her way out of the store.

Kyrgyz Police were also concerned about black dye stains on Metzger's hands. The normally blonde-haired woman's locks were colored, as if to conceal her identity. She had claimed during initial questioning that her captors had done it, but a local television report in Bishkek quoted a taxi driver who said he saw Metzger in the back seat applying the dye herself. That would explain why, three days after her so-called "kidnapping," dye stains could still be seen on the palms of Metzger's hands.

Local media reports, if they can be believed, offer a possible explanation.

The taxi driver said he took Metzger to the Issyk Ata District Medical Clinic, which happens to be very close to the the farm house in Kant where Metzger emerged after her alleged 30-mile run and escape from her "captors." The clinic is located near the junction of Togolok-Moldo and Kievskaya Streets, Bishkek television reported.

DID AN ABORTION GONE WRONG RESULT IN THREE DAYS AWOL?

What kind of "medical procedure" would involve going to such great lengths to hide one's identity? Rumors were rife at Manas air base, the U.S. run transfer facility just outside Bishkek, that Metzger had sought an abortion.

Her husband of five months, Capt. Josh Mayo of the USAF Office of Special Investigations (OSI), was back in the States, and Metzger's temporary tour of active duty overseas was due to end in just a matter of days.

Local police had noticed dried blood "on top" of the major's bare feet and little in the way of abrasions on the soles. If Metzger had run the 30 miles barefoot, wouldn't the majority of blood be located on the "bottom" of her feet?

Also, investigators found it hard to believe Metzger, 90 pounds at the time of her "escape," could possibly "overpower" what had to have been an armed guard and run away. Wouldn't it stand to reason her "abductors" would pursue their fleeing captive? Why let her get away so easily? It makes no sense. But by then, Kiyazov was sure of only one thing. He was not being told the truth.

WHISKED OUT OF THE COUNTRY ON AN AIR FORCE TRANSPORT PLANE

Why did the Air Force suddenly fly Metzger out of Kyrgyzstan without advance notice to the host government, when the brass knew local police had more questions to ask? They were well aware the Kyrgyz cops were highly suspicious of the major's fantastic claims.

According to an informed source at Landstuhl AFB Medical Center in Germany, where Metzger was flown for medical treatment, the petite major refused to submit to tests that could have confirmed or disproved a recent pregnancy.

An OSI agent who tried to question Metzger, was met with no cooperation at all.

In a copyrighted, exclusive interview with MilitaryCorruption.com, the agent said: "She just clammed up tight. Metzger would say one thing, and we'd easily eat holes in her story. Once we'd call her out on that, she'd mumble 'I don't know, I can't remember.' I think she realized our people weren't buying her story at all, so she just decided to shut up and say no more."

But back in the States, her retired colonel father, John Metzger, had plenty to say to Air Force TIMES in that paper's Oct. 16, 2006 edition.

The doting dad exclaimed, "They beat her up pretty bad," and said at one point, Jill's captors "put a rope around her neck." He raptured about his daughter's courage ("she's a tough little cookie") and repeated the incredible tale that tiny Jill "overpowered" a guard and ran barefoot 30 miles to freedom.

THE STONE WALL OF SILENCE DESCENDS

It seemed the Air Force knew they had a real mess on their hands. When feminist icon Jill Metzger, two-time winner of the Air Force Marathon, and object of worldwide news headlines just a few weeks before, landed at Moody Air Force base in Georgia, there were no brass bands or base commander to meet and greet the self-described heroine. Airmen on the base told us they were ordered not to speak or approach Metzger, on pain of court-martial.

A female captain was flown in from the Pentagon to be Metzger's "minder," and for the next nine months, the major could be seen jogging around the base, but her only confrontation with anyone was reportedly an irate Airman's wife who berated her in a local Wal-Mart for being "a disgrace to the Air Force." The story goes, Metzger, rattled by the verbal assault, was whisked away in a hurry.

E-mails from frustrated Air Force personnel started to flood in after we published our first articles, questioning what happened and asking if a cover-up was under-way. An OSI agent told us he was convinced she was a phony after she failed "not one, but two polygraph tests. It wasn't even close," he said.

The fact that the Air Force didn't - and has not to this day - awarded Metzger a high decoration - or ANY decoration, for that matter - for her self-described "escape and evasion" heroics, rankled many people at Moody.

"They can't justify or document at all that she's telling the truth," said one master sergeant. His guess was she was being "protected at a very high level." He was correct.

"LAY OFF HER. SHE'S GOT SOMEBODY BIG BY THE BALLS"

Two years after Metzger's great adventure, an OSI agent who worked the case said to us in a tape-recorded interview, "We were told to lay off her - that she had somebody big (a top general) by the balls."

That would explain the many rumors that a certain three-star flag officer, now a four-star general and one of the most feared and despised officers in the Air Force, had taken an inordinate interest in Metzger's welfare. Air Force personnel at Manas e-mailed us that this general, who was there at the time of the "disappearance," was waiting for Metzger's return at the main security bunker and pressed his "coin" into the guard's hands, cautioning them: "You didn't see anything, OK. Don't talk to the media."

At Moody, the "little people," mostly enlisted members irritated by Metzger's special treatment, kept MCC appraised of what was happening. When the Air Force tried to quietly slip Metzger out the back door on a temporary medical disability status, we were first to break the news. But the outrage that erupted after it was learned that Metzger had been granted a 100% "disability" pension for PTSD (a condition mostly incurred in a combat zone) was the most anguished and vitriolic of any e-mail we have received in the ten years MilitaryCorruption.com has been online.

Most of it is unprintable, but the theme was, how come she gets special treatment and a 100% rating out of the box, when others, actually disabled, come back to the States from the war zone and are denied a fraction of Metzger's largesse?

However, the height of hatred among the ranks was reached when it was learned - again reported first here on the pages of MilitaryCorruption.com - that self-centered Jill had actually run in not only the (2008) Air Force Marathon, but the Marine Corps Marathon as well. And this, while drawing 100% "disability" pay. "She might as well of told us all to go to hell," said a disgusted female runner at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. "Obviously, she thinks she's above the law. She acts like a little queen."

AIR FORCE PRESS OFFICE WON'T COMMENT - CITE METZGER'S "PRIVACY"

It's that feeling - that Metzger got away with what could have been a court-martial offense and even profited from it, while others serving under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) are treated differently - that causes immense anger and frustration to this day.

All efforts by us to learn the truth by appealing to the Pentagon and Air Force Public Affairs Office have been met by a stone wall. We urge the "mainstream media" to show a little courage and risk being labeled "politically incorrect" by pressing the top brass for a real explanation.

As long as the Pentagon can operate with impunity, this odious cover-up will continue. We hope we're wrong, but this may be a case of where "crime DOES pay."

AN "OPEN LETTER" TO JILL METZGER

Have you no shame at all? On this fourth anniversary of your fantastic story that you've incredibly gotten away with so far, do you have even a sliver of conscience left that reminds you of what you really are?

If not for your "celebrity" and extraordinary connections, you might have faced court-martial back there in Kyrgyzstan. Try on AWOL for three days, making a false official statement, fraternization, adultery, disobeying a standing order (not to separate oneself from other Americans while in the Tzum department store in Bishkek) and conduct unbecoming an officer.

Oh, we weren't sure at the beginning that you were a phony, fake and fraud. MilitaryCorruption.com tried to give you the benefit of the doubt. But soon, it became all too clear, a high-level cover-up was taking place and you were the beneficiary.

None of our colleagues in the "mainstream media" bothered to ask why the Air Force didn't award you a medal. We know why. And so do you. If your "story" had been true, without a doubt, the Air Force would've decorated you and sent you on a nation-wide publicity tour, helping recruit other "super-achiever" females to come wear "Air Force Blue."

Why didn't you go on "Oprah" or "Larry King?" What? No book or TV movie?

Is it because your tall tale is so full of holes one could drive a tank right through it? We know you failed two polygraph tests.

Lucky you, you're married to an OSI agent and your "four-star friend," a bully and thug so powerful that some of our sources fear for their lives if their identity were to become known, can still run interference for you.

But the day is coming when justice will finally be done. I may not live to see it. I don't have much time left. But others ready to take my place will. MilitaryCorruption.com is not going to give up and "go away."

Not as long as genuinely disabled veterans are coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan. These brave men and women have risked their lives and spilled their blood for our country. What have YOU done to justify your existence and that fat, tax-free "disability" pension you receive? We hope, for your sake, it wasn't obtained by fraud. There are federal laws that deal with that.

We don't want you to go to prison. No, a better penalty would be to make you pay back every cent you've racked up for your PTSD "disability" pay off - if it is proven you're a liar - and "sentence" you to five years of unpaid service emptying bed pans at Walter Reed.

Maybe you can help real heroes with legs shot off struggle into their wheelchairs. How about spoon-feeding soup to a trooper whose hands are gone because they were blown off by an IED in Afghanistan?

You could tell him how "easy" it was for you to score a 100% "disability" rating, while less privileged souls spend years fighting "the system" to get only a fraction of the money you receive.

Did you really think you could run in both the Air Force and Marine Corps Marathons without us finding out about it and publishing the news? What you did was an incredible example of arrogance. We've never heard of a 100% "disabled veteran" competing in such a grueling physical and mental ordeal. We're sure the DAV in Washington hasn't either.

MilitaryCorruption.com has always tried to be fair with you and we repeat our offer to publicly apologize for any error of fact you can prove we have made on these pages. We want you to know you have unlimited space on MCC to answer any of our charges you feel are false.

Why not come out and make a statement? You're retired now. What are you afraid of? Don't you think the men and women of the U.S. Air Force, who have been so disrespected by their so-called leaders whose silence has been deafening the past four years about your case, deserve to know the truth? It's about time.

I agree-—you shouldn’t take anybodies word about anything. You have a computer. Punch the name “Jill Metzger” into the search engine of your choice. Think objectively and discern the FACTS.

Hey I was there between ‘91 and ‘95. Great place to work. Otherwise this sounds like the chick got her azz knocked up on tdy and went to get a quickie abortion which was messed up. She then panicked “I’m AWOL, my hubby will know I been *ucking around like a common slut.”

Only thing that makes sense.

It wasn’t an attempt at moderation ... it was a commentary on the credibility of the source. If you continue to see such questions as “fighting words”, I suspect you’ll run into actual moderation before too long.

Here's what struck me:

1. Why would a deployed female officer whose husband in in the US not be on birth control if she is going to be sexually active (if the abortion theory is true)?

2. Why would an AF general be protecting her (if true)?

3. Why would she receive 100% disability when men from Vietnam with real PTSD and Agent Orange disabilities still are not receiving disability pay?

Answer: Sounds like a coverup, but not hers. Since this is entire speculation because the story has not unfolded, maybe the general raped her, she became pregnant, and now HE's the one covering it up. Just my 2 cents.

If she was given non-judicial punishment, it wouldn’t be public information. It seems like she should have gotten something more severe, but there may be circumstances that we aren’t aware of.

Well Deb, since this has cost the taxpayer hundreds of millions of dollars in higher base rental payments, hospitalization, C-17 medivac costs, Fed grand jury costs (as reported by Steve Centanni and Greta Von Sustern), disability, medical pension etc-—Don’t you think the taxpayers and rank and file have a right to know what a field grade officer did to cause this misadventure? Is this our fault or something, and if so, why and how?

Governments usually announce when a war is over-—even Cold wars. Usually. I’m sure we will be able to determine when the war is concluded when active combat and advisory roles/missions end and the deployed troops return to their Bases Stateside/Europe/Asia/Pacific.

I didn’t assume anything. I didn’t even comment on the story itself, or the motives behind it. I just said the source lacked credibility ... which it does.

The combination of (1) extreme “newbie” with a (2) source I’ve never heard of (3) called “militarycorruption.com” will generally make me request a better source before I’m going to draw a conclusion.

The fact that the individual that posted the story threw a hissy fit when he was questioned, tried to play an unverifiable “veteran” trump card, and demanded an apology for having the audacity to question his highness does not help his credibility.

Great-—you are a little man and you you can’t admit your wrong. By projecting blame, you are changing the subject and that’s your intent-—simply because you don’t like the serious implications of this story.

How do you think the rank and file OSI agents feel about this? I knew one of those guys and he got killed over in Iraq by an IED. He wasn’t happy with this situation!

You question the “motivation” of the story! That’s laughable. The vast majority believe something is wrong, should be corrected and remedied, yet you tried to blame me and Major MacDonald who wrote the story! Why is that? It’s your motivation that’s in question now pal.

Here’s a sample from that thread——eat it Doc!

Let the readers decide based on the facts and the evidence presented.

Seems to me, the higher the rank, the greater the corruption, so then MCC is wrong! None of those things they exposed happened! You must believe! Flag officers careers and big money are at stake here folks! After all, your leadership could never do any wrong, right? Those laws and UCMJ articles don’t exist either!

Col. Murphy doesnt exist—— his lack of a law license never happened! You must believe!

Jill Metzger doesn’t exist-— it’s all just a figment of your imigination and is all MCC’s fault!

Gen. Fiscus doesn’t exist-—There never was a Gen. Fiscus scandal.

The firing of Gen. Moseley never happened-— we never heard of an AF Sec named Wynne either!

We must never hold anybody above the paygrade of 0-6 accountable. They could never do any wrong. You must believe!!! We must foster a climate of 0-7 and above covering for each other!

You must believe that our flag officers are the epitomy of “core values”. After all, core values only apply to paygrade 0-5 and below!

Yes, Virginia, Military Corruption Dot Com is totally wrong for exposing wrong doing and demanding accountability. Soon our brave government agents will “take care of the trouble makers” and the problems they caused!

AIR FORCE PAO STONEWALLS AND REFUSES COMMENT ON JILL METZGER COVER-UP

This retired AF Reserve major should know it's not the Public Affairs officer's position to speak on a matter like this unless they're given the authorization. Typically the COCOM PAO will authorize specific guidance from which PA reps can speak.

So, to set the record straight, retired Reserve Maj MacDonald, the PA officer isn't "stonewalling" you... and you know that. You're playing the yellow journalism card, and it's beneath you to do so.

Good friend Snake: All I am saying, is I heard when Jill was kidnapped, but I never heard anything in the media about her heroic overpowering of her captor, her miraculous escape, her coolness with a bomb in her back pocket, etc. This story screams to be told. She is a regular GI Jane, Ramboette, etc. and deserves to be a household name, if this story is true. Why was it not covered? It should not be hard to corroborate the facts as they were presented. A little internet browsing should provide a lot of info.

I am not saying there is or is not a coverup here, but if there is one, it should be exposed.

I spoke with a GW1 vet who told me first hand tales of service members not carrying their weight and higher ranking officers covering for them. Not saying that is the case here, but why the media blackout, Snake?

I will investigate and post here if I find this story is without merit. If the story is as presented, will you admit it is important?

I still question the credibility of the site. As do those at the Military Times ...

- “MCC doesnt ‘cover’ anything. Its just the opinion of one angry old man, not ‘news’”;
- “THere’s about 2 decent errors that I saw with the article to begin with. IF you can’t get the basic facts correct, then I can’t expect the main points to be any better”;
- “I’d say Military Corruption is 90% yellow journalism, 10% integrity. Muck-raking and Gonzo journalism went out with the 70’s. Hunter S. Thompson is turning in his grave.”

Not interested in your little video.

General belligerence and whining for an apology is not going to get you much respect around here. If you want to be coddled, go home to your wife/mother.

Please spare me the name calling, would you please stick to the issue being discussed?

The post you quoted was from “WillsPowers” — the guy who was having his posts’ crediblity questioned. You probably just quoted your own post.

The response to that post from site regulars was as follows ...

>> “Bitter much about how badly we often shoot you down, Will?”

If they don’t take you seriously at MilitaryTimes forum ... why should we?

It wasn’t my quote. It was a quote from a Military Times Forum post questioning the credibility of MilitaryCorruption.com.

I didn’t namecall ... I simply quoted forum posts to point out that the credibility of this particular site is widely questioned.

Find another source. This one is damaged goods.

My brother-in-law has been trying for 3 years to get his disabilities (and he has many) recognized by the VA. They are constantly shuffling him between doctors for evaluations. His problems were unrecognized as caused by Agent Orange in earlier years. He is supposed to be close to finally getting what he deserves.

I didn’t say anything against the attitude of rank and file personnel. My son was one of those between 1998 and 2002. I’m only stating that the story is still untold and lots of speculation is going on. I agree that someone seems to be covering up what really happened. My response was a continuation of the speculation told in this story. And I see more harm from higher than the Major in the cover up. She’s probably been instructed that she is not to say anything.

Actually, I remember the story. It may have merit. Accuracy in Media is a reliable source.

MilitaryCorruption.com is not. Questioning extreme newbies is also a good way to weed out belligerent, uncredible, or apology-demanding posters.

Mission accomplished.
