An Army brigadier general has been charged with forcible sodomy, inappropriate relationships, and possessing alcohol and pornography while serving as a senior commander in Afghanistan earlier this year.
Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair, a deputy commanding general of the 82 nd Airborne Division, faces a possible court martial over the charges handed down Wednesday.
In May, Sinclair was sent home to the United States in the middle of his combat tour in Afghanistan, where he was serving in the southern Afghanistan province of Kandahar as the deputy commander of logistics and support for the 82 nd Airborne.
Sinclair was sent to the division's home base of Fort Bragg, N.C., so allegations of potential misconduct could be investigated. At the time of his return, base spokesmen confirmed that Sinclair was under criminal investigation.
A news release by the Fort Bragg Public Affairs Office listed the charges presented against Sinclair as including "forcible sodomy, wrongful sexual conduct, attempted violation of an order, violations of regulations by wrongfully engaging in inappropriate relationships and misusing a government travel charge card, violating general orders by possessing alcohol and pornography while deployed, maltreatment of subordinates, filing fraudulent claims, engaging in conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman and engaging in conduct prejudicial to good order and discipline, or of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces."
Few specifics about the allegations against Sinclair were released Wednesday, but a Defense Department official said "several women were the subject of Sinclair's alleged misconduct."
A former U.S. official who worked with Sinclair during his deployment in Kandahar said he and other officials who knew Sinclair were shocked by the news of the charges. He described Sinclair as being "very proactive" and a "gregarious individual."

 I suppose that this would be surprising if we lived in an alternate universe where Madison Avenue ad campaigns were completely true.

Unless, in this guys case, he saw the "BE ALL YOU CAN BE" sales pitch and thought, "Oooooo, rapist. Sign me up motherfucker."

Of course, this has nothing to do with the whole war schtick.

Wars are noble.

Warriors are heroes.

& there is absolutely nothing wrong with invading a country.

Sometimes it's necessary.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...there's a modicum of collateral damage.

A few children get eviscerated.

A few women get raped.

You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.


When all is said & done, they'll thank us.

Dick, the man is too old to get away with that. He's high ranked and old. Certain young men of slight rank are encouraged by certain young ladies to be promiscuous. Sorry Charlie. No deal.

Come on, Richard, I know you have something to say about the two clowns as the faux election approaches. Like how the Libs knee-jerk on the Romney Big Bird comment when it's irrelevant since PBS has become mainstream now for at least a who cares if it's fully privatized now? At least now, none of our tax money will be going to pay for our propaganda.

And is it me, or does Romney have a thyroid problem? His eyes are consistently bulging out of his head. He has that crazy stare that corporate CEOs have. I know it cuz I worked with the psychopaths and they all have that wide-eyed stare...they must learn it in CEO Training.

And if I didn't know better, the script was for Obama to look slow and sluggish in order to make this look like a closer race. The stage managers of the Election 2012 told the two actors to make this thing look like the real thing, "so Obama, you dial it back into slow gear, and Romney, you dial it up into high gear, and then we will sell it as Romney won the first debate and look....the polls are now saying it's almost a dead heat...we've got a horse race ladies and gents....step right up."

Somebody Save Me.

I've been working Shrub. Keeping my head above water is getting to be like that old Stooges gag where they bail out a sinking boat with a sieve.

I didn't see the debate.

Voting is too much like choosing your own rapist.

Yeah, I didn't see it either. My daughter had to watch it for school, so I caught five minutes of it...enough to see what I wrote. I told her I couldn't take it anymore and went upstairs and watched Sons of Anarchy on Netflix. I agree with you about voting....but try to tell the fools at RI that with the exception of a few.
