GATES TRIES TO WHITEWASH TRUTH AS TO WHY "HOSS" CARTWRIGHT PASSED OVER FOR CHAIRMAN OF JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF JOB "OBAMA'S FAVORITE GENERAL" NO MORE - ALL THAT "SUCKING UP" TO HUSSEIN AND BIDEN DID NO GOOD - ARMY'S GEN. MARTIN DEMPSEY GETS KEY POSITION - SECRETARY OF DEFENSE REFUSES TO DISCUSS CARTWRIGHT'S ALLEGED "WOMANIZING" - IG PROBE - ALCOHOLIC FEMALE AIDE SEEN DRUNK AND PASSED OUT ON HOSS'S BED DURING OFFICIAL VISIT OVERSEAS

Dr. Joseph Goebbels, Nazi wartime propaganda chief, once said: "Tell a lie often enough, and people will believe it." Well, we are not equating former CIA boss and our current Secretary of Defense with the club-footed Kraut, but Robert Gates knows the mainstream media will report many times over the blarney he recently uttered about Marine Gen. James Cartwright.
"One of the finest officers I have ever known . . . made an enormous contribution . . . rendered extraordinary service to the American people. . . blah, blah, blah." And is THAT why he lost the big job?
Both Gates and the Obama Administration would have you think the stunning pass over of ole "Hoss" for the post of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff isn't important. "Nothing to see here, folks. Just move right along."
Oh, yeah? Everyone in the Beltway and at the Pentagon knows Cartwright has had his smackers firmly planted on the behind of both Obama and Biden and was the presumed "favorite" for the above-mentioned position.
"HOSS" TO BLAME FOR THE WAY CAREER ENDED
That Cartwright crashed in flames, an ignominious end for the hard-charging former Marine fighter-pilot, is a story in itself.
He can only blame himself for falling out of favor with the powers-that-be. First of all, he tried to undercut his fellow generals on the size of troop increases in Afghanistan. Not being a "team player" sounded a warning bell to one and all that "Hoss" was one to go "off the reservation" from time-to-time.
The Marine flag officer certainly has his enemies, thousands of them regular readers of MilitaryCorruption.com. Can you spell S-T-R-A-T-C-O-M? You should see some of the stuff we can't print (expletives included) from folks that are not at all sorry to see the boastful one wipe egg off his puffy face.
But if ole "Hoss" wants to point a finger at who is responsible for his embarrassing flame-out, all he has to do is stand in front of the nearest mirror and look at his own mug.
FEMALE AIDE (GALPAL?) MADE ENEMIES
Despite a Pentagon IG "whitewash" of the general's rumored ways with women - he was "cleared" of fraternization with an arrogant, alcoholic female aide who felt comfortable enough with "Jimmy" to pass out drunk on his bed in his private quarters while the two were on an official trip overseas.
In fact, it was this obnoxious broad who bragged to one and all of her great "power" thanks to Cartwright, and who caused an uproar when she almost came to blows with a Secret Service agent.
No, "Hoss" Cartwright is now a joke and gossip item because of his own poor judgment and inflated ego. There are many people in uniform glad to see him go.
Was the female ever named? If he was named, why not her? She was the one passed out drunk!
>>> alcoholic female aide who felt comfortable enough with “Jimmy” to pass out drunk on his bed in his private quarters while the two were on an official trip overseas.
So what? In the absence of any proof improper relations were occurring on that bed while she occupied it, or that this occurred while she was on duty rather then on downtime, has it gotten to the point that drinking on your own time (even to excess) is now forbidden in the Corps? Are the prohibitionists back ?
You’re right- alcoholism by itself is not an offense punishable by the UCMJ, but conduct unbecoming an officer is. However, I am inclined to disbelieve this whole story of her passing out in Hoss’s room altogether. She was in there for more than sleep, if you get my drift. Perhaps this why ol’ Hoss has kicked his wife to the curb, according to my source. Adultery is a UCMJ offense, but enormously difficult to prove unless there is eyewitness evidence or one of the two parties admits it. I expect the aide (who if unmarried, cannot be charged with adultery), to receive a promotion for her silence. All this being done for “the good of the Corps” and to avoid embarrassing the VCJS andn by extension Obama/Biden.
You are incorrect. The woman, regardless if she is married, can be charged for adultery for having sex with a married man. Just FYI.
This weasel Cartwright even endorsed the Democrat plan to sodomize the military through repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".
Good riddance to bad garbage.
By the way, here's another interesting tidbit from Cartwright's congressional testimony:
Cartwright said implementing a repeal of the law that bans gays from serving openly in the military will be challenging, adding that managing such a systemic change may best be done while the country is at war.
Periods of reduced activity can create conditions wherein the challenges associated with making a change of any kind [seem] enormous, he said. In times of conflict, the forces focus is on the war effort, the general said.
For Ubama and the rats to successfully sodomize the US military, they need wars.
I want to throw up.
We know that every officer that get his star or command is going to have to pull his knee pads out and salute the sodomites. Of course Cartwright is going to push the implementation of gays in the military. He won’t have to live with the consequences back in DC. All his buddies are probably pipe chokers and all you have to do is look at the freak fest that is the current democrat quisling party.
Yep. Look what happened to the great Peter Pace. He was thrown under the bus in favor of the homo Mullen when he failed to toe the homo/Democrat line. (Thanks, Bush.) I was proud of our last Commandant, General Conway, though. He told the scumbags to go play in their hot tubs.
Guy was just given a pardon by Obama for perjury in a leak case regarding Stuxnet.
