Pentagon Issues Apology to MilitaryCorruption.com

An apology has been issued to the website Military Corruption for the actions of a member of the Pentagon staff who sent an email to the website with abusive and incendiary language:

?ÄúI could hardly believe my eyes, even after his threatening e-mail of last week [see related stories],?Äù MacDonald said. ?ÄúUsually when an officer ?Äòflips out,?Äô like that, or is extremely offensive, he (or she) does it verbally over the telephone so as to cover their behind.

?ÄúThis time – the offender, LCDR Dan Hetlage ?Äì sent us a series of profanity-laced e-mails that only confirmed how unsuitable he is for the job he currently holds. Maybe he can be sent to a combat zone like Iraq or Afghanistan for more than a few days in a luxury hotel so he can really risk his life like our editor-in-chief did (from 1966 – to – 1969) in the bloody war in Vietnam.

In addition to an earlier e-mail, where the out-of-control PAO threateningly told us to ?Äúbe prepared for the consequences?Äù of our news articles and declared that all the contents on MilitaryCorruption.com are against ?Äúall that this county stands for,?Äù Hetlage attacked our editor, a multi-tour combat veteran, as a ?Äúpussy-wimp,?Äù claimed we ?Äúsupport terrorists,?Äù and said MAJ MacDonald is considered a ?Äúf – – king joke?Äù in Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld?Äôs office.

The Department of Defense has said it regrets the action and has reprimanded the officer with counseling. Yeah, counseling. You can read the original article which prompted the explosive tirade: “Fire Rumsfeld now”.
