The ultimate ass-kissing “political officer,” Dempsey “takes care” of his high-ranking pals while trying to destroy the careers of better men than he. A case in point is LTC Matt Dooley. More on him later on in this story.
GEN. WARD AND HIS WIFE LIVED “HIGH ON THE HOG”
A good example of Dempsey’s blatant double standard of justice is his attempt to get his pal, former Africa Command boss, Gen. William “Kip” Ward, out the back door, retired as a full four-star general. This, despite Ward being nailed in a Department of Defense I.G. investigation as having “engaged in multiple forms of misconduct related to official and unofficial travel.”
You see, dear readers, “Kip” likes to travel like a potentate, and he took his wife Joyce along for the ride.
They ran up huge bills on the Govt. tab. During a refuel stop in Bermuda, the general and his well-fed frau stayed in a $750-a-night hotel suite. The room service tab was as much as some Americans make in a week (take-home pay).
When wifey wanted to go on shopping expeditions to all the top stores in the Washington, D.C. area, five-vehicle caravans were laid on for Mrs. Ward, so she could travel in comfort and style.
Just think what would happen to an enlisted member or junior officer if they were caught wasting taxpayer’s money in such a fashion…….
