Rich Blackmail Targets: Many Pentagon Officials w/ Top Secret Clearance Had Child Porn

By Debbie Schlussel

Several years ago, I wrote about Brian J. Doyle, a top Homeland Security official who was caught trying to solicit sex with what he thought was a 14-year-old girl, online. Instead it turned out to be sheriffs in Polk County, Florida. But, as I noted then, thank G-d the sheriffs caught him before Muslims did. They could have blackmailed him into doing who knows what against America.

Now, the Boston Globe reports that many Pentagon employees with top secret security clearance have been caught buying and possessing child pornography.  Can you imagine what would happen if only a fraction of them had the peccadilloes discovered by Islamic terrorists before our government did?  It’s very scary. Kudos to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents who originally caught these people through Operation Flicker.

Federal investigators have identified several dozen Pentagon officials and contractors with high-level security clearances who allegedly purchased and downloaded child pornography, including an undisclosed number who used their government computers to obtain the illegal material, according to investigative reports.

The investigations have included employees of the National Security Agency, the National Reconnaissance Office, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency — which deal with some of the most sensitive work in intelligence and defense — among other organizations within the Defense Department. . . .

The fact that offenders include people with access to government secrets puts national security agencies “at risk of blackmail, bribery, and threats, especially since these individuals typically have access to military installations,’’ according to one report by the Defense Criminal Investigative Service from late 2009.

Some of the individuals have been prosecuted and other cases have been dropped, while more have languished several years without resolution, according to the previously undisclosed documents about the investigations.

The more than 50 pages, compiled by the investigative service, part of the Pentagon’s Inspector General’s Office, contain summaries of investigations initiated since 2002, including some cases that remain open.

The uneven discipline reflects difficulties in bringing prosecutions, according to specialists. The evidentiary standards are high for prosecution in child pornography cases, according to child welfare specialists, including positively identifying victims as underage or known victims of abuse. In others, evidence was lost or misplaced and investigators said they lacked sufficient resources to complete all of them.

These are the people we caught. Who didn’t we catch? And who knows about their child porn predilections . . . and will use it against them to blackmail and extort their way through our national security?

Don’t think there aren’t plenty of both the former and the latter.

Part of the problem may be due to PC. Security reviews are supposed to be preventive, & to catch people with weird sexual proclivities; but after all the PC, gay marriage, etc. the reviews probably aren’t as tough as they used to be. In the early 50s, lots of gays were wisely removed from Government because of the threat of blackmail, but today, the security investigators are probably so cowed that they’re afraid to check these things, just like they’re afraid to curb Muslim terrorists in the armed forces.

    Little Al:

    I think you hit the nail on the head.

    commonsense on July 23, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    Little Al, you say, “In the early 50s, lots of gays were wisely removed from Government because of the threat of blackmail. . . .”

    You are aware, of course, that at the same time our government was thoroughly penetrated by Soviet spies, correct? The issue isn’t mainly PC, unless we’ve always been a PC nation.

    skzion on July 25, 2010 at 2:26 pm

The way things are happening with the Obama regime, I’m not so sure there aren’t officials all the way to the top being blackmailed by muslim terrorist operatives.

    Blackmailed or simply bought and paid for, and that also goes for Judges and politicians.
    I really hate our new PC liberal world, don’t you?

    theShadow on July 24, 2010 at 12:42 am

I know that this is going to sound silly but why don’t those guys watch something nice like “WKRP in Cincinnati” or some real good anime. What do you think about that?

Ghostwriter on July 23, 2010 at 6:05 pm

There are more than we think… the smart ones aren’t dumb enough to download it on government computers. But its a matter of time before someone (child porn addict) is going to be turned who has a top secret clearance.

Its simple… if America can’t protect its kids, how can it protect its secrets? Its not always easy to identify a kiddie pervert on sight – and that’s scary!

NormanF on July 23, 2010 at 6:10 pm

Good article. I remember not too long ago when some judge was indicted for this stuff and another judge took care of the thing. I forget the details. NAMBLA has a lot of big shots in its ranks.

I don’t know how much of this stuff was found on computers in the Pentagon, but it’s a pretty safe bet that there’s at least a thousand times more of it on the computers at the Vatican.

“But, as I noted then, thank G-d the sheriffs caught him before Muslims did. They could have blackmailed him into doing who knows what against America.”
what you said is really funny, why you point your theory to Muslims. There a lot of people can use other politicians reporters even someone know him can blackhim. or maybe Jewish. Cristian, etc etc .. Dont accuse ilsams like you always do with out proof

saud on July 24, 2010 at 1:07 am

Silly comment by Daniel H about the Vatican. The Vatican is not in charge of protecting our security, and the Pentagon is.

Little Al on July 24, 2010 at 8:17 am

    I know that, Little Al. Full disclosure: I am an Atheist. I was just making a comment on the uselessness of ALL organized religion.

    Name any religion, and I will point my finger at people who claim to be strict adherents of it who are complete dickwads. Catholics? Mel Gibson. Jews? Jack Abramoff. Mormons? Harry Reid. Evangelicals? Sorry, but I don’t believe there’s enough space here for the ones who fall into that category.

    I will anticipate your next question and answer yes, I am intelligent enough to realize that for sheer destructiveness, none of these faiths comes even remotely close to Islam. It’s the only one of the faiths that has never made ANYBODY a better person. About the best it has ever done is occasionally have no effect at all (I detect no difference in the before and after footage of Cassius Clay and Mohammed Ali or Lew Alcindor and Kareem Abdul Jabbar).

    Anyhow, to get back to my point about the Vatican, I just wanted to point out that I believe that most Catholic lay people are decent human beings, but I wouldn’t trust any of the clergy to be alone with a preteen boy under any circumstances. I believe that any parent who would is just plain foolish at this point. There’s obviously something psychologically wrong with an adult male who would voluntarily choose a career in which never having the opportunity for a romantic relationship with an adult female is a mandatory requirement.

    Daniel H on July 24, 2010 at 2:09 pm

And another foolish comment by saud. The WTC was not blown up by Jewish or Cristian (sic) people (we know that the mosques don’t teach spelling). We know who committed all the terrorists incidents, so naturally we should focus on them.

Little Al on July 24, 2010 at 8:20 am

Yeah…and no one in the Network Center is arrested???

YeahRight on July 24, 2010 at 8:48 am

The real reason is that there are more people involved in these evil deeds than are good people. The power of darkness has it’s hold on the majority of our people.The church has failed but, will rise again through the persecution that is coming.

joe Myrick on July 24, 2010 at 10:15 am

yes the vatican remark was wholly uncalled for — stay on point, folks.
This all points to the evil worm within who is easily destroying the fine system we once had — sexual perversion is that worm that destroys marriages, families, people, and now as we see, governments, and our own security.
Pitiful and sad!

robinpayne on July 24, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    No, robinpayne, the issue isn’t sexual perversion, but committing serious illegal acts that you can be blackmailed for–like child porn.

@Daniel H on July 24, 2010 at 2:09 pm
Just because someone claims to righteously adhhere to their religion doesn’t mean they do. There are plenty of the self-righteous types anywhere you look. As someone pointed out elsewhere, even atheism can become a religion to some.
Now, back to the topic shall we?

Sometimes it’s all to easy.
Years ago I was introduced to a friend of a family. Didn’t like him from the start. One night I caught him glaring at one of the kids at a party and talked to the parents there. They all agreed they had the same feelings about him. We found out that the time he served for what he claimed was “drunken driving” was actually because he molested his own neice. I’m sure she wasn’t the only one. Everyone treated him as a leper from that moment on. Luckily the bastard croaked right after that, otherwise we might have found him at the bottom of a pond and one of us in prison.
If you have a feeling about someone, please don’t ignore it like too many parents do.

theShadow on July 24, 2010 at 4:25 pm

Little Al : what a nice comment you have, is this how you discuss your opinion in real life….

saud on July 25, 2010 at 5:04 pm

saud, you have a problem with truthful exposition?

You know, if you just converted, you’d see things in human terms.

skzion on July 25, 2010 at 6:20 pm

Because the biggest issue here is NOT that these people are fucking perverts and probably child molesters, but that they might be blackmailed by Muslims someday?

hellcat on July 29, 2010 at 12:44 pm

Saud your a muzzie? Who would have known with that sharp wit and tongue of yours. Go back to your sand box you troll.

Tmorlan on August 31, 2010 at 10:24 pm

“Note that Senator Grassley is a consistent advocate of the biotech industry, receives much in contributions from GMO king Monsanto (and ethanol king Archer Daniels Midland), and has long been fighting the EU on the GMO issue. In 2003, he advocated filing a legal case against the EU to challenge its moratorium on GMOs. The nerve of those French – and other Euros – to deny the Big Agra Complex and their dictates!”
–Looks like Grassley has a few skeletons in his closet!

Sherrbano Taseer on June 23, 2013 at 5:07 am

Key point here is the use of child pornography by the DOD to blackmail (extortion by threats especially of public exposure) political figures as a means of controlling them. The Franklin Scandal is an example of this. The perverts at the DOD should be fully investigated.
The world’s war machinery is run by child pornographers it seems…rather startling to say the least. The alleged crimes of Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden pale into insignificance but little or no furore over it.Anderson Cooper looks rightfully perplexed + troubled.
