Hearing set for 9/14/2009 12:00 PM in Columbus before Judge Clay D. Land (tlf). (Entered: 09/11/2009)

 we had a hearing on 11th. Defendants were represented by 3 attorneys: US attorney, Pentagon attorney and Fort Benning attorney. they claimed that my client, flight surgeon Cpt  Rhodes MD didn’t show up for no reason, she just didn’t feel like coming.

I presented to the judge a notarized statement, showing that Col Jeffrey Johnson, her commander from Fort Riley, KS has forbidden Connie from leaving Fort Riley a day early and she was threatened that if she does, she will be court martialedand can be thrown into military prison. In this fashion the gov. prevented Connie from being at her own hearing and 5 minutes before the hearing they served me with the motion to dismiss.

Judge Land did not appreciate this strong hand tactic of the government and he ordered the government to make sure Connie is able to leave the base to be at her hearing, which was scheduled for Monday at 12 noon. This time it is their responsibility to do whatever is necessary for Connie to be in court.

It is a tough week for me as in 5 days I am making 5 red eye flights and long trips between OC, LA, Atlanta, Columbus and WA DC.

I will post   a separate report about DC 9/12

    I’m amazed that the government attorneys would flat-out lie about Capt Rhodes’ reason for not showing up. Just another in a long line of reasons not to trust them.

    Keep up the good work Orly! Good luck on Monday!

    Perfect… just perfect. Like Bob Novak is to have strongly believed: “Always love your country. Never trust your government.”

    A funny guy said to me a few years ago: “When you lie to the government you go to jail. When the government lie to you, you go to war.”

    Obama heaps shame upon shame on our government. Those military brass are base cowards for acquiescing to an illegal chain of command in the first place, and now they debase themselves further by resorting to tactics befitting Chicago gangsters. How could they imagine they are serving this country and defending the Constitution by such gutter politics?

    Judge Land should hold them in contempt, have them jailed and charge them with conspiracy, obstruction of justice and criminal perjury. Their law licenses should be revoked and they should be disbarred. Lawyers are Officers of the Court and required to honorably represent the truth. They cannot knowingly misrepresent the truth. Many lawyers will not ask their clients obvious questions for self protection. When all three of the defense attorneys answered in what appeared to be a concerted effort to misrepresent; they probably did conspire and did lie. They should be held accountable for this abuse of power and witness intimidation.
    This is serious misconduct.

    Please excuse me Capt. Steve.., but I am also amazed that your un-aware that your government not only routinely creates evidence.., but also.., destroys it, whenever it suits their needs…..
