Fifteen years ago today, militia sympathizer Timothy McVeigh blew up a truck full of explosives at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people and wounding more than 600 in the worst terrorist attack to hit the United States before 9/11. And for more than a few observers, there’s a smell similar to 1995 hanging in the air today. In her Sunday Washington Post column, Kathleen Parker asked, “Is the political environment becoming so toxic that we could see another Timothy McVeigh emerge?” This morning, blogger Steve Benen wrote, “For those of us who follow American politics closely, the developments are common enough to become dizzying.” And in the New York Times, Bill Clinton just reminded us that, “In the current climate, with so many threats against the President, members of Congress and other public servants, we owe it to the victims of Oklahoma City, and those who survived and responded so bravely, not to cross [the line crossed in Oklahoma] again.”

Indeed we do. But few analysts have ever acknowledged that Clinton himself was resurrected by the bombing. That McVeigh murdered 168 Americans is only part of his legacy: He also detonated his own fringe, and the aftermath of Oklahoma City should stand as a lesson to politicians on both sides of the aisle.

Exactly 15 years ago yesterday, then-President Clinton was forced to declare at a press conference, “I’m relevant. The Constitution gives me relevance.” Health-care reform was dead, and Hillary Clinton seemed discredited. Both houses of Congress had gone Republican, and the GOP was rolling out its legislative plans.

The next morning, the Oklahoma City Federal Building exploded. Pundits would go on to write that it was the government shutdown later that year that allowed Clinton to trump the Republicans, but it was actually Oklahoma City that first allowed him to step forward as a national leader. As speechwriter Michael Waldman wrote in his book POTUS Speaks: “It was the nation’s first exposure to Clinton as mourner in chief … In fact, it was the first time Clinton had been a reassuring figure rather than an unsettling one.”

Even more than that, Oklahoma City created a huge political opportunity, which Clinton quickly seized. On April 27, a little more than a week after the bombing, Dick Morris, then a little-known but influential Clinton adviser, presented the President a fantastically naked political memo that, as you can find in his book Behind the Oval Office: Getting Reelected Against All Odds, said: “Permanent possible gain: sets up Extremist Issue vs. Republicans.” Morris suggested using “extremism as issue against Republicans,” not by “direct accusations,” but via a “ricochet theory.”

Clinton should “stimulate national concern over extremism and terror,” Morris wrote, and then “implement intrusive policy against extremist groups.” Morris predicted that radical right-wingers would write their local Republican congressmen, and that in turn “this will provoke criticism by right-wing Republicans which will link right-wing of the party to extremist groups.”

“Net effect,” Morris concluded: “Self-inflicted linkage between party and extremists.”

The Clinton Justice Department didn’t go as far as Morris wanted, but it didn’t matter. Republican members of Congress soon made fools of themselves defending militias. And Clinton found his voice. At a Michigan State commencement address shortly afterward, he told graduates, “There is nothing patriotic about hating your country, or pretending that you can love your country but despise your government.”

In his memoirs, Clinton didn’t mention the Morris memo, but wrote: “The haters and extremists didn’t go away, but they were on the defensive, and, for the rest of my term, would never quite regain the position they had enjoyed after Timothy McVeigh took the demonization of government beyond the limits of humanity.” Indeed, Oklahoma City gave Clinton the chance to pull his presidency together by advancing a positive agenda of triangulated social issues. And that strategy reached full flower in his 1996 State of the Union speech, where Clinton introduced a man named Richard Dean, a Vietnam vet who had worked in the Oklahoma City Federal Building and who re-entered the building four times to rescue people after it blew up. As everyone, including Republicans, stood to applaud, Clinton went on:

But Richard Dean’s story doesn’t end there. This last November, he was forced out of his office when the government shut down. And the second time the government shut down, he continued helping Social Security recipients, but he was working without pay … I challenge all of you in this chamber: Never, ever shut the federal government down again.

That’s how much Clinton got it: He explicitly linked the terror of Oklahoma City to the federal shutdown, and both to the Republican Congress. After that, Clinton barely needed to look over his shoulder to get reelected.


These days, Republicans are allowing the likes of Michele Bachmann and Rush Limbaugh to speak for the party, while Newt Gingrich is talking about shutting down the federal government all over again. GOP leaders are unwilling to denounce the “lunatic right” on their merits. Today is a day to remember how terribly that ended before.

UNIQUE. HISTORIC. PRESTIGIOUS. ICONIC.

Image

In 1795, twenty-one Harvard juniors crowded into the dorm room of one Nymphas Hatch to establish a new on-campus society. The members pledged to maintain the Club's secrecy and "to cultivate the social affections and cherish the feelings of friendship and patriotism" amongst them. Most importantly, they mandated that "the members in alphabetical order shall provide a pot of hasty pudding for every meeting."

Over two centuries later, the Pudding continues as a cornerstone of the Harvard experience and is the source of lasting friendships. The oldest social club in the United States, the Pudding boasts a distinguished membership, including five U.S. Presidents (John and John Quincy Adams, Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy), William Randolph Hearst, Jack Lemmon, and many other luminaries in entertainment, academia, politics, business, and public service.

Throughout the years, the Club has continued to attract a dedicated membership that carries on our many special traditions including weekly Members' Nights, Lecture Lunches, Charity Night and Service Days. The Hasty Pudding Club is the only co-ed social institution on Harvard's campus and accepts members from all four classes.

There is no other collegiate organization quite like it in the world.

HASTY PUDDING THEATRICALS HISTORY

The Hasty Pudding Theatricals have presented their unique brand of student-written theater every year since 1844, the only exceptions being for World Wars I and II.

THE PUDDING STORY

In 1795, twenty-one Harvard students crowded into a dorm room to celebrate the establishment of a new on-campus society. Members pledged to maintain the club’s secrecy and “to cultivate the social affections and cherish the feelings of friendship and patriotism.” Most importantly, they mandated that “the members in alphabetical order shall provide a pot of hasty pudding for every meeting.” With this ritual, the Hasty Pudding club found its namesake, and the theatrical organization of today found its simpler roots.

Image

The turn of the century saw the introduction of a new tradition into club meetings. In response to increased rowdiness and anarchy, a mock criminal court was improvised to try club members for “insolence” and “contempt of the club.” These trials were a great success, and the club constitution was amended to incorporate these dramatizations into every club meeting. No figure was safe from condemnation by this amateur court system — Cortez was convicted for “massacres and cruelties,” the British Parliament stood guilty for its beheading of Charles I, and the college administration was indicted for “compelling the whole body of students to pursue the dry, repulsive . . . study of mathematics.” Through the years, these productions became more elaborate, with the addition of costumes and eventually scripts. In 1844, Harvard senior Lemuel Hayward broke with tradition and secretly arranged the production of an opera, Bombastes Furioso, instead of the expected mock trial. Thus, the first Hasty Pudding show was born, starting a tradition that has continued for 160 productions, interrupted for only four years by the two World Wars.

Image

The first productions were adapted shows from the professional theatre of the era; by the 1860's, the Pudding was producing student-written shows. Productions were initially performed exclusively for club members, but as their popularity grew, audience exclusivity waned. Harvard granted theatre space to the Hasty Pudding in 1876, opening the shows to a general audience. The space was a dingy little building on the edge of the athletic field that the club secretary, Theodore Roosevelt, referred to as “the shed.” In 1882, the club produced a landmark show that attracted national attention. Dido and Aeneas was a burlesque adaptation of Virgil’s classic text, and was so popular that the Pudding was offered the opportunity to tour New York and Philadelphia. This national attention and financial success allowed the Pudding to construct the current clubhouse in 1888, and set the gold standard for all Pudding shows that were to follow.

The modern Pudding show has evolved into a spectacle beyond anything ever envisioned by the founders of the original secret society. Undergraduates are now provided guidance by theatrical veterans in all aspects of the production while sets and costumes rival those of many professional shows. The group also donates thousands of dollars each year to the arts programs of Cambridge Public Schools, maintaining its presence in the community.

Image

Still, the show remains in its essence a no-holds-barred burlesque, with men playing both the male and female roles. Women are involved in all other aspects of the show, from technical staff, to the band, to authoring and producing the show. With the introduction of the Woman of the Year celebration in 1951, and the Man of the Year in 1967, the Pudding has gained a truly international audience. Despite these factors, the Pudding remains at its heart an organization driven by the enthusiasm and exuberance of its undergraduates. This year’s 169th production, HPT169, running February and March 2016, continues in this long and illustrious tradition that can only be described as uniquely ‘Pudding.’ The Hasty Pudding Theatricals have presented their unique brand of student-written theater every year since 1844, the only exceptions being for World Wars I and II.

"PUDDING" OTHERS FIRST

SUPPORTING ARTISTS WHO OTHERWISE WOULDN'T HAVE A VOICE.


The Hasty Pudding Institute of 1770’s philanthropic mission is to provide educational and developmental support in all aspects of the performing arts for the underprivileged, to encourage satire and comedy, and to cultivate young talent around the world.



The Hasty Pudding makes a difference through three approaches:

* Direct service
* Grants to individuals and organizations (click here for 2014 grants list)
* Convening of like-minded organizations around special projects.

I am most pleased to report that my dear friend and Georgetown colleague, Casimir Yost, has been named the Director of the Long Range Analysis Unit at the National Intelligence Council. For fourteen years, Cas served as the Director of the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy (ISD) at Georgetown. For the past year, he has been a Visiting Professor and Chair of the International Relations and Security Concentration in the Master of Science of Foreign Service Program (MSFS).

While at Georgetown Cas taught three graduate seminars in MSFS: “Contemporary Sino-U.S. Relations,” “Defining National Interests,” and “U.S. Foreign Policy Process: Executive/Congressional Relations.” Among his many activities, he co-chaired ISD’s Schlesinger Working Group on Strategic Surprises and the annual meetings of the International Forum on Diplomatic Training. He also served as the Project Director for “America’s Role in the World — Foreign Policy Choices for the Next President” Working Group and was co-author of the resulting monograph, America’s Role in the World — Foreign Policy Choices for the Next President, which was published in 2008.

Prior to coming to Georgetown, Cas was Executive Director of the Center for Asian Pacific Affairs (CAPA) of the the Asia Foundation in San Francisco. He also served as President of the World Affairs Council of Northern California and had extensive Capitol Hill experience, serving as Staff Director of the Subcommittee on International Economic Policy of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations from 1982–1986 and prior to that as Foreign Policy Advisor to Senator Charles McC. Mathias, Jr. (R-Md.) from 1977–1982. (On a personal note- Cas an I first met when I was his intern on Capitol Hill in the summer of 1977.)

Cas holds an MSFS from Georgetown and a BA in History form Hamilton College. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the National Committee on United States-China Relations.

Cas is the perfect choice for this position. I know that he will make a lasting contribution to the intelligence community — much as he has made a lasting contribution to Georgetown University.

Assassination

Image
A Spartan-III assassinates another Spartan-III with his/her knife.

An assassination is a mechanic in which a player enters a third-person view and performs an elaborate one-hit-kill melee attack from behind. It occurs when a player presses and holds the melee button when behind another player. Assassinations can be performed in both Campaign and multiplayer.

Halo: Reach Assassinations

Assassinations done in matchmaking count towards the Rear Admiral commendation or Assassin commendation.

For both Elite and SPARTAN-III players, there are three different basic assassination types and one unique type that are played show a specific animation that varies depending on which part of the back is struck and the players' positions. There are also different animations that run if assassinating an enemy of the other species, all depending on the situation during which they are performed. Other than basic assassinations, when one is holding an Energy Sword, they can perform unique assassinations, not able to be done with any other weapons.

SPARTAN against SPARTAN (Multiplayer only)

When playing as a Spartan in Halo: Reach matchmaking, you can perform several different assassinations using your Combat Knife, located somewhere on your character's chest, depending on which chest piece you're using.

Basic Assassination 1: Both players are on the ground

This assassination involves Player A standing on the same surface as Player B. The specific animation that is used varies depending on which part of the back is meleed.

• Player B turns around to Player A. Player A raises their knife in hands and brings the blade down, stabbing Player B's skull straight down. Player B falls to their knees with the knife in them. As Player A releases the knife from Player B's head, Player B falls backwards dead.

• Player A shoves Player B ahead and stabs their knife into Player B's middle back. Player A rips the knife from Player B's body to the right, causing Player B's dead body to fall to the right.

• Player B turns around to somewhat face Player A. Player A readies their knife and stabs it in the gut of Player B, situating the knife to hit Player B's heart under their rib cage. Player A pulls the knife out of Player B's stomach. Player B falls left, dead.

• Player A tosses the knife up behind their back, catches it, and stabs Player B In the middle/lower back. Player A grabs the back of Player B's neck, pulls the knife out, and throws Player B's lifeless body to the ground.

• Player A reaches their left arm over and to the right of Player B's head. Player A grabs Player B and puts them in a reverse headlock, while having their knife in right hand. With Player B's stomach area unarmored, Player A stabs the knife into the gut of Player B. Player A keeps it there for a brief moment while holding Player B's chest piece. Player A rips the knife from Player B's stomach as Player B falls dead to the right.

Basic Assassination 2: Assassin is airborne, but victim is not

This assassination involves Player A jumping or falling right behind (Close enough proximity to melee) Player B.

• Player A lands on Player B's back and slams them to the ground with their left foot. Player A takes his feet to each side of the ground Player B is on. Player A bends over, reaches for Player B's neck and snaps it to the right, killing Player B. Player A gets up off Player B's left side.

Basic Assassination 3: Both players are airborne/Victim is airborne, but assassin is not

This assassinations involves Player A and B to be airborne with Player A right behind Player B; alternatively, Player A could be surfaced while Player B is in the air.

• Player A, airborne, slams their fists down on Player B's head, causing Player B's back to break, and falls to the ground.

Unique Assassination: Both players are on the ground, Player A wields an Energy Sword

For this assassination to properly take place, both players must be surfaced and Player A must have an Energy Sword as their current weapon.

• Player A somewhat punches Player B's back. Player B turns around and Player A slashes Player B's chest with their Energy Sword. Player B falls to their left side onto the ground, and Player A brings their Sword down to and through Player B's gut. Player A pulls the Sword from Player B's body, and Player B remains dead on the ground.

Spartan against Elite (Campaign and Multiplayer)

Basic Assassination 1: Both players are on the ground


These types of assassinations require a SPARTAN to be the assassin and an Elite to be the victim. While assassinating an Elite, the SPARTAN has two choices of unique assassinations.

• The SPARTAN climbs up the back of the Elite, putting his right foot on the back of the right shin of the Elite and left foot on the left thigh of the Elite. Holding on to the Elite's left shoulder and neck, the SPARTAN raises their knife in right hand and brings it down to the right side of the Elite's shoulder, in between the shoulder blade and neck. The Elite drops to its knees as the SPARTAN releases the knife and steps off of the Elite's back. The Elite falls forward, dead, to the ground.

• The Elite takes a left step forward and the SPARTAN climbs atop it (the same way told above). With their left hand, the SPARTAN holds the back of Elite's head. And, with their right hand, the SPARTAN hold the right jaws of the Elite (chin if the Elite wears Ranger armor). The SPARTAN twists the Elite's head to the right, snapping its neck. The SPARTAN hops off the Elite as it falls forward.

• The SPARTAN, holding their position to the right side of the Elite, tackles and crawls on top of the Elite with knife in right hand while grabbing Player B's helmet/head gear. The SPARTAN raises their knife and stabs it through the eye of the Elite (visor if the Elite wears Ranger armor). The SPARTAN gets up, ripping the knife from the Elite's face.

• The SPARTAN takes out his/her knife and uses it to sweep the Elite's right knee to the right. The stunned Elite turns to face the SPARTAN as they get SPARTAN's knife jabbed in their jaw (visor if the Elite wears Ranger armor). The SPARTAN slams Elite's head backward to the ground with their knife still in the Elite's jaw, breaking its back. When the Elite hits the ground, the SPARTAN pulls the knife from its face.

• The SPARTAN forces the Elite to their knees, and the SPARTAN somewhat climbs atop the Elite, stabbing their knife into the top of the head of the Elite, piercing its brain. With the knife, the SPARTAN pulls the Elite's head back and releases their knife. The Elite falls backward to the right, dead.

• The SPARTAN is in the air and is behind the Elite with knife in hand. The SPARTAN takes their knife and stabs the Elite between the head and shoulder. The Elite falls to the ground.

Basic Assassination 2: Assassin is airborne, but victim is not

• The SPARTAN knees Elite's back and the Elite falls to their stomach on the ground. As the Elite staggers to get up, the SPARTAN jumps square on the back of it's head, slamming the Elite's face to the ground and breaking it's skull. The SPARTAN squats atop the Elite's head for a second, and then performs a 180 jump forward off the Elite's head, facing it's dead body.

o Alternatively, the SPARTAN may not perform a 180, but, instead, they may simply jump, forward, off the Elite's head.

Basic Assassination 3: Both players are airborne/Victim is airborne, but assassin is not

• While mid-air, the Elite gets the SPARTAN's knife stabbed through the back of their neck while the SPARTAN holds onto the Elite. The Elite falls forward, dead, and the SPARTAN almost stops mid-air and lands straight down to the ground.

Unique Assassination 1: Both players are on the ground

• The SPARTAN, Energy Sword in right hand, jumps on top of the Elite's hunchback and stabs it through the back with the energy sword. While the Elite falls, the SPARTAN hops off of the Elite's back and lands on the ground.

Unique Assassination 2: Both players are airborne/Victim is airborne, but assassin is not, Player A wields an Energy Sword

• The SPARTAN's left hand grabs hold of the Elite's left shoulder and the SPARTAN swiftly stabs an Energy Sword through the back of the Elite. The Elite falls forward, dead, and the SPARTAN almost stops mid-air and lands straight down to the ground.

Elite against Elite

While playing as an Elite, players, instead of using a Combat Knife, like a Spartan, use an Energy Dagger attached to the wrists of the Elite.

Assassinations in Campaign/Firefight

There are a few assassinations you can perform on Covenant troops in the Campaign and/or Firefight:

Unggoy

• The player grabs the Grunt and breaks its neck.

• The player grabs the Grunt and stabs its head, piercing its brain.

Jiralhanae

• The player pushes the Brute down, and then stabs it in the back.

• The player pulls the Kig-Yar's head back, stabs it in the chest, and slams it down on the ground.

Halo 4 Assassinations

Many assassinations are changed to be more "breathtaking" and vivid. Now there are assassination animations using the oddball and the flag.

Spartan against Spartan

Player A is the Spartan initiating the assassination, Player B is the victim.

Basic Assassination 1: Both players are on the ground

• Player A tackles Player B to the ground and stabs the knife into the visor and takes the knife out.

• Player A leans Player B over his knee and pushes Player B's neck back until it snaps, then drops him to the ground.

• Player A grabs Player B's head and pulls it back, revealing their neck. Player A then pulls out their knife and slits Player B's throat.

• Player A grabs Player B by the shoulder and stabs Player B in the neck forcing him to the ground. Player A then simultaneously pulls the knife out of Player B's neck and pushes player B away with his foot.

• Player A grabs Player B by the shoulder and does an underhand stab with the knife into player B's neck and lets him fall to the ground.

Basic Assassination 3: Both players are airborne

• Player A meets Player B in midair from behind and quickly stabs Player B in the neck/right shoulder area, killing Player B. (identical to "Basic Assassination 2," the first of the two assassinations listed)

Basic Assassination 4: Both players are on the ground, Player A has an energy sword

• Player A stabs the sword through Player B. Player A lifts Player B into the air and takes a step using the left foot. Player A then quickly pulls the sword out of Player B's body. Note that this assassination is only possible if Player A is sprinting toward the back of Player B, otherwise a default assassination will be performed.

Basic Assassination 5: Both players are on the ground, Player A has the flag

• Player A swings the pole part of the flag to knock Player B to the ground on the right side facing Player A. Player A then takes two steps forward and brings the flag down on Player B's face which vaporizes Player B.

• Player A knocks Player B to the ground and then lunges at him with Player B stabbed through the left shoulder. Player A then performs a lateral slice across the right of Player B's neck that kills Player B.

• If Player B is in the air, Player A will do an upward sweep with their claw and will then bring it down on Player B which sends Player B's now dead body to the ground.

Spartan against Promethean Watcher

Image
Episode 3 - Halo 4 Mythbusters

Though difficult, it is possible.

• The SPARTAN will jump on to the "back" of the Watcher and stab it's head with a knife. The Watcher will lose a little altitude from its right side and turn around. The SPARTAN then brings his/hers fist up to the "face" of the Watcher. A video showing this assassination can be seen here, it begins around 1:30.

Beat Downs vs. Assassinations

With normal beat downs, one will quickly melee the opponent's back, resulting in an instant kill, but will stay in first person view. This earns them a medal but no credit or commendation increase. With an assassination, the player goes into third person view and performs a special finishing move. During an assassination, the player runs a risk of getting their kill stolen by a teammate, which results in the teammate getting a Yoink medal. The player is also able to be damaged and even killed during the animation, which will cause the victim to be saved and the would-be assassin's killer to get the Showstopper medal. This makes assassinations relatively unpopular for fast paced gametypes such as Oddball or Team SWAT. Also, performing assassinations will negate fall damage, unlike beat downs. This allows players to survive fatal falls if an enemy happens to be directly below. This is featured in the achievement, If They Came to Hear Me Beg.

Tactics

• In the campaign, there are a few times that are given to you for assassinations including the first Elite and (if you are quick enough) the Grunts and Jackal in Nightfall, or the Elite Rangers operating the consoles in the communications room of the Ardent Prayer in Long Night of Solace.

• You should probably try not to attempt an assassination if you are in the middle of heavy combat as you are left vulnerable for a short time.

• One way to assassinate a Jackal is to melee their shields until they are depleted. The jackal will turn around to run away, giving you a few seconds to assassinate it.

• One easy way to make an assassination on Elites is to first lower their shields with a melee. Because the Elites in Halo: Reach and Halo 4 will often raise their arms and roar in anger if you lower their shields this gives you a few precious seconds to run behind the Elite and assassinate it.

• The "Bum Bait" tactic, which involves one player standing still near a corner while another waits with an instant kill weapon (shotgun, energy sword, etc.) behind aforementioned corner and kills the first person to attempt an assassination on the presumably AFK player. The shooter will always get a Showstopper medal.

Trivia

• The Halo Reach Grunt assassination animations are most likely a homage to Cal-141, as she kills two Grunts in the same way in The Babysitter.

• In order to initiate different assassinations while both players are on the ground, melee from the right, left or directly behind the victim.

• If you perform an assassination on a moving surface, the animation will be cut short.

Navy SEAL trainee admits killing woman

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – When a vacationing Georgia college student was murdered in 1995, two Navy SEAL trainees who ended up going to prison for the crime blamed each other for her death.

Now, one of those men says that he alone killed premed student Jennifer Evans.

Brown appeared in Virginia Beach Circuit Court on Wednesday as part of a bid by Dustin Turner to overturn his conviction. The hearing was to resume Thursday, with Turner set to take the stand again if lawyers decide they need to ask him more questions.

Brown and Turner were stationed at Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base, training to become elite Navy commandos, when Evans disappeared from a Virginia Beach bar. Nine days later, Turner led police to her decomposed body in a park 30 miles away.

Turner and Brown were convicted of killing her in separate jury trials. But in a sworn statement in 2003, Brown said he was the only one responsible for Evans’ death.

He said he became a Christian in prison and realized he had to come clean.

“I am here to glorify Jesus Christ by telling the truth,” he said Wednesday. “If it helps Dusty, that’s great.”

Under cross-examination by prosecutors, Brown acknowledged telling conflicting stories about what happened the night Evans died.

The Virginia Court of Appeals granted the hearing under a law allowing inmates to present newly discovered evidence of innocence.

After a judge determines whether Brown’s confession is credible, the case will go back to the appeals court, which must decide whether it would have changed the outcome of Turner’s trial.

If so, Turner, 33, would be freed. Prosecutors could appeal to the Virginia Supreme Court.

Brown said Wednesday that he choked Evans but later claimed Turner did it because he was angry that Turner, his close friend, snitched to investigators.

Brown said he and Turner went drinking at an oceanfront bar when Turner met Evans, a 21-year-old Emory University student from Tucker, Ga. Tired of waiting for another woman to give him a ride home, Brown said he joined Turner and Evans in a car.

Brown said he talked to them and played with Evans’ hair.

“One minute I was normal. The next minute I snapped and I started choking her,” Brown testified.

Turner testified that Evans swatted Brown’s hand away and that Brown attacked her as Turner was starting to tell him to get out of the car. Turner said he tried to pry Brown’s arms away from the woman’s neck, but she went limp and Turner assumed that she was dead.

While Brown testified Wednesday that he passed out immediately after choking Evans, Turner said Brown he was able to give him directions to get to the highway. Turner then drove to Newport News, where the men left the body in a park.

Under cross-examination, Robert Anderson, senior assistant attorney general, highlighted inconsistencies in various versions of the crime Brown has told over the years.

Brown said he had no conscience until becoming a Christian and said he lied so much that his defense attorney did not believe him in 1999 when he wrote a letter saying he had committed the crime alone. He later recanted on the advice of another inmate.

Turner was sentenced to 82 years in prison for first-degree murder and abduction with intent to defile. Brown was sentenced to 72 years for conviction on the same charges plus attempted rape.

Parents Of Slain Girl Sue U.S., Cite Seal Training For Death
by Virginian-Pilot
June 21, 1997

NORFOLK — The parents of slain Georgia college student Jennifer Evans have filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government and four co-defendants alleging that Navy SEAL commando training turned the two men who killed their daughter into a "lethal weapon'' with a "sense of invincibility.''

Billy Joe Brown and Dustin A. Turner were convicted in separate trials of first-degree murder last summer in the strangulation of Evans, a 21-year-old Emory University pre-med student who was vacationing in Virginia Beach when she was abducted from a bar near the oceanfront.

Her body was found eight days later in Newport News Park.

The men were members of SEAL Team 4 at Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base and were finishing the final stages of SEAL training. Both are serving sentences that amount to life terms in prison.

The lawsuit was filed in Norfolk's federal court by Al and Delores Evans late Wednesday, at the second anniversary of their daughter's death.

The suit, which seeks $5 million, also names Brown and Turner, as well as the hotel that owned the bar.

The suit alleges that "but for the training imposed by the defendant U.S.A. upon the defendants Turner and Brown, they would not have raped and/or murdered'' Evans.

The training program, the lawsuit alleges, "produces violent side effects'' and turns "the trainee into a lethal weapon and ... instills in the individual a sense of invincibility as well as euphoria, implying that he can do no wrong.''

The government, according to the lawsuit, was aware that Brown had "violent tendencies'' before he was inducted into the Navy. Brown had been discharged from the Coast Guard under other than honorable conditions because he assaulted a superior officer, the suit says.


Despite guidelines or regulations designed to prevent the enlistment of such people, the lawsuit says, the government "negligently accepted Brown for re-enlistment in the Navy and eventual selection for SEAL training.''

The SEAL training, according to the lawsuit, "when imposed upon Brown's pre-existing disposition for violence, created not merely a lethal weapon, but a highly volatile lethal weapon which should not have been released in public.''

The lawsuit named the Virginia Hotel Corp., trading as Radisson Hotel Virginia Beach, based in Richmond, and Radisson Hotels International Inc., in Minneapolis.

Attempts to reach Radisson officials Thursday night were unsuccessful.

The Radisson was the location and owner of The Bayou, the bar where Brown and Turner met Evans and abducted her on the night of June 18 and the early morning of June 19, 1995.

Testimony during both trials last summer established that Turner and Brown were drinking at The Bayou during that time.

Brown testified that he had more than 50 alcoholic beverages that night.

Turner at the time was 20, too young to be legally consuming alcohol. Brown was 23.

The lawsuit alleges that the hotel continued to serve both of them alcohol despite Brown's drunken state and Turner's age.

The lawsuit says that Turner and Brown "made it known to at least one of the employees of the ... Radisson ... that Turner would entice (Evans) from the premises so to take advantage of her sexually and to be joined by ... Brown.''


(The hotel has been sold and is under new management, and The Bayou nightclub was closed three months ago, an employee at the hotel said Thursday.)

The lawsuit also alleges that the government "knew or should have known of the propensity of Brown and Turner to engage in group sex with a single female since such was known to other members of the SEAL team including supervisors and had even taken place in Navy barracks.''

Testimony in the murder trials established that Turner and Brown had a penchant for picking up women for three-way sexual encounters.

At least once, Brown and Turner participated in an orgy while training at a SEAL base in California, according to trial testimony.

Todd Ehrlich, a SEAL stationed at Little Creek, testified he saw several prospective members of the elite commando force, including Turner, having group sex with a woman in their barracks while they underwent training in July 1994.


The revelation ran counter to the official portrait of life at the Coronado, Calif., training base, where would-be SEALs undergo 25 weeks of brutally challenging schooling.

Lawsuit alleges tolerance for rape, sex abuse in military
by Bill Sizemore
Nov 14, 2011

NOTICE: THIS WORK MAY BE PROTECTED BY COPYRIGHT

YOU ARE REQUIRED TO READ THE COPYRIGHT NOTICE AT THIS LINK BEFORE YOU READ THE FOLLOWING WORK, THAT IS AVAILABLE SOLELY FOR PRIVATE STUDY, SCHOLARSHIP OR RESEARCH PURSUANT TO 17 U.S.C. SECTION 107 AND 108. IN THE EVENT THAT THE LIBRARY DETERMINES THAT UNLAWFUL COPYING OF THIS WORK HAS OCCURRED, THE LIBRARY HAS THE RIGHT TO BLOCK THE I.P.

A female sailor who worked in a support role for a Virginia Beach-based SEAL team is one of 28 plaintiffs who allege in a federal lawsuit that they were raped or sexually assaulted with virtual impunity while on military duty.

The plaintiffs - 25 women and three men from all of the services - accuse two former defense secretaries, Donald Rumsfeld and Robert Gates, of allowing the perpetuation of a military culture in which sexual abusers go unpunished and are even promoted, while their victims are discouraged from seeking justice and subjected to harassment and retaliation when they do.

Petty Officer 1st Class Amy Lockhart alleges she was raped by a member of a Beach-based SEAL team while she was blacked out after a night of drinking with sailors during a pre-deployment training trip to California in February 2010. She also says her senior enlisted leader failed to take her accusations seriously, dismissing them with degrading, sexually charged language, including calling her a "slut."


When Lockhart pressed ahead with the rape allegation, it was investigated by the Navy and the charge was dismissed after a preliminary hearing on grounds of insufficient evidence. After a separate investigation, her senior enlisted leader, a command master chief petty officer, was stripped of his position and reassigned.

Navy SEALs - highly trained, secretive, sea-air-land commandos - are still an all-male enclave, but an increasing number of their support personnel are women.

Of the 20 women in Lockhart's SEAL support unit interviewed during the Navy's investigation of her case, half said they had experienced sexual discrimination or harassment.

Nevertheless, "there is no systematic or organizational bias against female personnel" in the unit, the investigators wrote in their report.
"Unfortunately there was a clear failure of leadership in this instance."

On the investigators' recommendation, the commanding officer of Naval Special Warfare Group 2 ordered commandwide training on sexual harassment and discrimination. The master chief's treatment of Lockhart was deemed "an isolated lapse in judgment."

Unsatisfied with the Navy's handling of her case, Lockhart is now pressing her allegations in a broader forum. In September, she was added as a plaintiff in the civil lawsuit, originally filed in February in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, accusing America's top military leaders of letting sexual abuse continue unchecked in the services.

The suit was filed by Susan Burke, a Washington attorney, with assistance from the Service Women's Action Network, a national support group.

Government lawyers have moved to have the case dismissed, arguing that the courts shouldn't interfere with military command and discipline and that Rumsfeld and Gates had no personal involvement in any violation of the plaintiffs' rights.

Oral arguments are scheduled for Friday.

The case is playing out against the backdrop of a Government Accountability Office study finding that sexual harassment still occurs frequently in the military despite long-standing efforts to root it out. Alleged victims of harassment almost never formally report it, the study found, in part because they believe their complaints would not be taken seriously.

Until last year, Lockhart, 32, an information systems technician, had a blossoming 13-year Navy career marked by glowing personnel evaluations. She was named her command's Sailor of the Year in 2007 and had recently been promoted to chief petty officer.

The Virginian-Pilot normally does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault but is making an exception in this case because Lockhart willingly divulged her name.

It all began to unravel on that 2010 training trip to Niland, Calif., in the San Diego area.

Lockhart acknowledges she is not blameless in the series of events that unfolded. She admits unprofessional conduct on her part, which she blames on depression and alcohol abuse for which she is now receiving treatment.

But she says there was a sharp disparity between her superiors' response to her actions and the actions of her male colleagues.

After a day of training, Lockhart went to dinner with some of her teammates, downing six or seven beers. Later, Lockhart said in an interview, she joined a party at the special-warfare compound, where there were multiple coolers full of beer. There, she drank more.

What happened next is disputed. Lockhart said she participated in a game of "I'll show you mine if you show me yours," flashing her breasts after a SEAL exposed his genitals.
However, witnesses who testified during the preliminary hearing said Lockhart initiated the game, and no one else played along. A fellow female sailor said Lockhart tried to persuade her to flash the group, but she refused. The SEAL Lockhart says started the game testified that Lockhart challenged him to expose himself, but he didn't.

Not long after that, an incapacitated Lockhart had to be carried to her bunk in the women's berthing area, where, she said, she has a hazy memory of another SEAL coming in and sitting on the edge of her bed.

The next morning, she awoke naked in her sleeping bag, unsure of how she got that way.

Back in Virginia a month later, she was brought before a disciplinary review board, a preliminary proceeding that can lead to a captain's mast, a form of nonjudicial punishment.

During that proceeding, she said, a member of the board told her he had a signed statement from the SEAL who came into her room, saying he had sex with her.

If that was true, she said, it was sexual assault, because she was passed out and incapable of consent.

Afterward, Lockhart said, her command master chief, who had presided over the hearing, told her the accused SEAL was a "close, personal family friend" of his - a fact she believes should have disqualified him from serving on the board. When she suggested a sexual assault had taken place, he is alleged to have replied, "Well, you showed your boobs. Isn't that consent enough?"


A week later, Lockhart filed a sexual assault complaint against the SEAL. In accordance with Navy policy, she was assigned a victim advocate, Chief Petty Officer Dena Hargrave.

In a signed statement later placed in the record, Hargrave recounted a conversation in which the command master chief called Lockhart a "slut" and said, "She shouldn't go about trying to purposely ruin someone's career because she got caught."

"I honestly didn't know what to say," Hargrave wrote.

At a captain's mast in August 2010, Lockhart was found guilty of indecent exposure as a result of the California incident.

She was also found guilty of fraternization, a military term for an improper relationship between people of differing rank. That charge stemmed from a separate sexual encounter she had with a lower-ranking sailor after her return to Virginia.

She was demoted from chief to petty officer first class and put on six months' probation.

Navy investigators determined there was insufficient evidence to support Lockhart's allegation that a SEAL exposed himself on the training trip. The SEAL was not disciplined.

Lockhart's rape allegation was dismissed at the conclusion of a daylong preliminary hearing in May. Both the presiding officer and the prosecutor recommended the dismissal, Lt. Arlo Abrahamson, a spokesman for Naval Special Warfare Group 2, said in an email.


Lockhart's command master chief was given a "letter of instruction," stripped of his position and reassigned by the group commanding officer.

The letter faults him for "exceptionally poor judgment" in his handling of Lockhart's allegations.

"Comments made by you to this Sailor, and to others in reference to her, are contrary to Navy Core Values," the letter read. "You failed on multiple occasions to treat this Sailor with the basic dignity and respect every uniformed service member and civilian employee deserves."

Abrahamson said the chief's conduct was not found to be criminal, although "it at times fell well short of the minimum expectations for persons in special positions of responsibility."

He said the command is confident that Lockhart's allegations "were comprehensively, objectively, and fairly investigated."

Lockhart, who has since been transferred to a different command, said she still loves the Navy and plans to stay in the service until retirement.

"But I will never go back to special warfare because of the blatant unfair treatment," she said. "They have an arrogance about them. They think they can do anything they want."

FOREIGN CLAIMS SETTLEMENT COMMISSION OF THE UNITED STATES

WASHINGTON, D.C. 20579

IN THE MATTER OF THE CLAIM OF

CHARLES LYDON HARRELL, JR.

and

MARTHA G. HARRELL

Under the International Claims Settlement Act of 1949, as amended

Claim No. CU-8326

Decision No. CU 6716

Represented by Tropical Gas Co.

Counsel for Tropical Gas Company, Inc.: Smathers & Thompson, by Robert F. O'Malley, Esq.

PROPOSED DECISION

Claimants, CHARLES LYDON HARRELL, JR. and MARTHA G. HARRELL, who owed a stock interest in Tropical Gas Company, Inc., assert a claim under Title V of the International Claims Settlement Act of 1949, as amended, against the Government of Cuba because of its nationalization of said Company.

In our decision entitled the Claim of L. Clyde Carter (Claim No. CU-6363 incorporated herein by reference), the Commission held that the properties owned by the Company were intervened by the Government of Cuba on August 26, 1960, and that this type of claim is compensable to an American national under the facts and conditions set forth therein. We need not again detail here the reasons or the method used in determining the value per share as $4.5885.

At the time of intervention, Tropical's preferred shareholders suffered no loss; and the common shares outstanding were 743,118. Subsequent issues not in existence on August 26, 1960 are not compensable (see Carter, supra).

On the basis of evidence of record, the Commission finds that these claimants, American nationals at the requisite times, come within the terms of the Carter decision, have been the owners of 58 shares of common stock in Tropical Gas Company since prior to August 26, 1960, and suffered a loss in the amount of $266.13 within the meaning of Title V of the Act. Further, the Commission holds that the amount of loss shall be increased by interest thereon at the rate of 6% per annum from August 26, 1960, the date of loss, to the date on which provisions are made for settlement thereof. (See Carter, supra.)

CERTIFICATION OF LOSS

The Commission certifies that CHARLES LYDON HARRELL, JR. and MARTHA G. HARRELL suffered a loss, as a result of actions of the Government of Cuba, within the scope of Title V of the International Claims Settlement Act of 1949, as amended, in the amount of Two Hundred Sixty-Six Dollars and Thirteen Cents ($266.13) with interest at 6% per annum from August 26, 1960 to the date of settlement.

Dated at Washington, D.C., and entered as the Proposed Decision of the Commission

Aug 11, 1971

Signed: Lyle S. Garlock, Chairman

Signed: Theodore Jaffe, Commissioner

NOTICE TO TREASURY: The above-referenced securities may not have been submitted to the Commission or if submitted, may have been returned; accordingly, no payment should be made until claimant establishes retention of the securities or the loss here certified.

The statute does not provide for the payment of claims against the Government of Cuba. Provision is only made for the determination by the Commission of the validity and amounts of such claims. Section 501 of the statute specifically precludes any authorization for appropriations for payment of these claims. The Commission is required to certify its findings to the Secretary of State for possible use in future negotiations with the Government of Cuba.

NOTICE: Pursuant to the Regulations of the Commission, if no objections are filed within 15 days after service or receipt of notice of this Proposed Decision, the decision will be entered as the Final Decision of the Commission upon the expiration of 30 days after such service or receipt of notice, unless the Commission otherwise orders. (FCSC Reg., 45 C.F.R. 531.5(e) and (g) as amended (1970).

Have experience in all phases of FBI investigative responsibilities. I am a highly experienced counterintelligence (HUMINT) agent with extensive criminal investigative experience including Counterintelligence, Domestic Terrorism, White Collar Crime and Money Laundering. Each assignment was unique requiring resourcefulness, ability to analyze, plan, execute and evaluate. Served in the New York Division as a relief supervisor responsible for the management of 12 special agents conducting foreign counterintelligence investigations. I was responsible for the assignment of case work, planning and implementation, the evaluation of and timely reporting of the intelligence obtained. Mentored newly assigned FBI agents and managed their progress at regular intervals. I was the field training officer for an agent who later became an Assistant Director.
