Flashback: What Happened To Those 1,700 Pentagon Child Porn Cases? Did We Finish Looking Into Those?

(TeaParty.org) – Way back in 2011, the Boston Globe revealed that Defense Department investigators had completely dropped the ball concerning 1,700 cases of Pentagon employees, including contractors, buying and downloading child pornography that were part of a 5,200 case review that was handed to them by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

These 1,700 cases were not reviewed, a disturbing oversight that Department of Defense Inspector General’s office promised to correct.

But did that ever happen?

Via Humans Are Free:

Gordon S. Heddell, the Department of Defense’s inspector general, said in a statement to the Globe that his office is working aggressively to correct the mishandling of cases identified in a multidepartment government probe called Operation Flicker.

“I can assure those with questions that my office is conducting an aggressive pursuit of anyone implicated in Operation Flicker and that it is a key investigative priority,” Heddell said in his first public statement on the matter.

Three and half years later, perhaps it’s worth asking how that went.

Gordon S. Heddell stepped down from his post in December 2011 a few days before Christmas, but a few Pentagon cases from Operation Flicker’s investigation have been successfully prosecuted.

Working with ICE, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS! Like the show!) managed to convict a 40-year old man, Carlton Williams, for possessing “over 6,000 images and 100 videos depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, including prepubescent children under the age of 12.”

A contractor working at the U.S. Naval Support Activity Center in Panama City Beach, Florida was also arrested and, according to legal records accessed via PACER, has plead guilty and will serve a sentence of nine years and one month.

America’s passionate community of paranoid dot-connectors are very busy tying this scandal to the UK’s elite pedophile scandal, blackmail allegations, dissident entrapment schemes, and vast ritualistic child sex abuse cults. Jittery, economically depressed, and emotionally numb, the public is dying to know: What about the remaining 1,698 accused military employees and contractors?

“Sorry, but we cannot release information about these cases at this time,” Brenda Rolin of the Department of Defense Inspector General’s Public Affairs Office told Black Bag via email. “We recommend you request information on the closed cases through the Freedom of Information Act process.”

In other words, the government likely hasn’t done anything to investigate these cases and hold those who have participated in these disgusting activities accountable for their actions. In the mean time, one has to wonder how many children have been victimized because no action has been taken to help remove sick people like this from the streets.

This is a perfect example of both the ineptitude of the federal government and it’s lack of a moral center, both of which have allowed this insane number of cases to go unassessed. It’s shameful.

Let’s hope that by now, at least some of these cases have been resolved.

Our children are our most precious treasure and we need to start doing everything in our power to protect them from predators. That starts by resolving these cases.
