Fort Bragg Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair Facing Sodomy, Other Charges (Recalled from Afghanistan)
Fayetteville Observer ^ | Wednesday, September 26, 2012 | Henry Cuningham

Posted on 09/26/2012 11:19:54 AM PDT by kristinn

A Fort Bragg brigadier general has been charged with forcible sodomy and other offenses involving sex, pornography and alcohol, Army officials said this morning.

The Fayetteville Observer has been monitoring the case and learned of the charges this morning. Fort Bragg officials will hold a press conference this afternoon.

"Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair has been charged with multiple violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice," said Col. Kevin V. Arata, the 18th Airborne Corps public affairs officer.

Charges include attempted violation of an order, violations of regulations by wrongfully engaging in inappropriate relationships and misusing a government travel charge card.

Sinclair was sent back to Fort Bragg from Afghanistan several months ago while serving as deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne Division headquarters.

But I thought this was what our government, our military, wanted in our ‘ranks’?

Wow. Only one got caught so far.

Expect many, many more. But I’m surprised this is being prosecuted as such.

Only between members of the same sex.

And oral sex is technically sodomy, except for the Great Clinton.

Under the UCMJ sodomy is all oral and anal sex, regardless of whether it it same sex or opposite sex.

Thus, under the UCMJ it is illegal for any man in the military to receive oral sex from his wife.

We have no idea of the sex of the person Sinclair forced sodomy on.

First, I’m embarrassed that I wrote “your” rather than “you’re.” Sorry.

I’m pretty sure this is a gay thing. One look at the photo tells it all. And if he was dealing with a woman, I think it might have read “rape” not “sodomy.” But I’ve been wrong before!

I don’t know, but I figure that one photo can’t be the only photo taken. Big Media loves gays and chose THAT one — why?

AND I trust no first or second or third reasons, etc, given by this administration for anything Hussein and his handlers do.

Article 125 of the UCMJ has a pretty broad definition of sodomy:

"(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the offense.

What soldier in the 82nd Airborne would want to die for this guy?

They way the US Armed Forces are going, I suspect a lot of regular GI’s will be asking themselves this question with increasing frequency

LOL! So you can be openly gay, but you cannot commit sodomy? I guess you have to repeal DADT to see what’s in it, or maybe that’s just a bump in the road. The devil may be running this world, but he sure has some dumb schmucks working for him.

uh, this was sexual assault, that thing that used to be called “rape”.

Notice how the word “rape” has disappeared. Sexual assault leaves it to the imagination, the word “rape” does not.

LOL sad, but true.

I guessing whoever was forced to "assume the position", but I notice many of the other charges listed could be brought against any soldier if their records are scoured over close enough. Afghans love porno and probably alcohol too, I'm surprised an O-7 isn't exempt from those regulations for goodwill ambassador purposes.

If it is okay for our queer Commander In Chief to have man-sex with Larry Sinclair why isn’t it okay for Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair to have man-sex?

The Huffington Post article (yea, yea, I know ...) says that the charges included “ ... multiple counts of adultery and having inappropriate relationships with female subordinates while serving in Afghanistan.”
