(Before It’s News)


Two U.S. admirals — including the director of naval intelligence — are under investigation as part of a major bribery scandal involving a foreign defense contractor, Navy officials announced Friday night.
Vice Adm. Ted Branch, the service’s top intelligence officer, and Rear Adm. Bruce Loveless, the Navy’s director of intelligence operations, were placed on leave Friday, and their access to classified material was suspended, the Navy said in a statement.
Both admirals are being investigated for their ties to a Singapore-based defense contractor, Glenn Defense Marine Asia, whose chief executive was arrested in September on charges that he bribed other Navy officers into giving him classified information in exchange for prostitutes and cash.
This is going to seem odd for me to say but since when did the top brass start policing itself?  Know what I mean? Granted this does involve intelligence sharing.  I don’t know, it all just seems weird.  This comes as at least a dozen other top officers have been purged from the military by Obama.  This is either one of two things.  One, it is what they say it is, purging corruption from the top brass is a must and I have no doubts that corruption is rampant.  Or two, this is a political purge.  The kind of political purge that is carried out in tyrannical regimes the world over for centuries.  Hard to tell in the land of the free but both I think are possible. -Mort
