Army Retaliation against Sgt. Donald Buswell, the 911 NCO

by Captain Eric H. May Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2006 at 10:45 AM Houston, Texas

The US Army has done the only thing it could do in its attempt to undermine the "911 NCO," Sergeant Donald Buswell, who has become a central figure in the 911 Truth Movement by calling for a new 911 investigation -- and being attacked for it. Sergeant Buswell, it turns out, has powerful comrades in the State Department who present a big problem for a military bent on defaming him for his position of principle and his mission of conscience.

Army Retaliation against Sergeant Donald Buswell, the 911 NCO

A Follow-Up Report to the US Army Inspector General (8/29/06)

Introduction to the Inspector General

Dear Lieutenant General Green,

Journalists and editors with whom I regularly discuss Sergeant First Class Donald Buswell have expected an act of official retaliation against him before long. As you already know, I filed a formal complaint of prior official retaliation against him with your office recently. Here is the chronology of events to present:

Four weeks ago Sergeant Buswell, a 19-year Army intelligence analyst at Fifth Army, suggested that the nation re-examine the 911 investigation.

Three weeks ago the 911 Commission published a new book saying that the military had deliberately misled it in its investigation.

Two weeks ago Sergeant Buswell was placed under investigation and suspended from duties by the Army for disloyalty for questioning the official 911 story. I file a complaint with the Army Inspector General.

One week ago an article about Sergeant Buswell appeared in the Lone Star Iconoclast, a mainstream publication with a worldwide reputation and considerable Congressional readership.

This weekend the US Army's Signal Corps posted an article attacking Sergeant Buswell: Anti-War Left Gets Help from Unexpected Quarter While the writer misrepresents much, he cites such important articles, like my prior complaint to your office, as part of his attack on Sergeant Buswell.

Defending the Loyalty of Ghost Troops

In the article, the Signal Corps writer also attacks Ghost Troop, the cyber-intelligence unit of which Sergeant Buswell is one of many notable members, asserting that membership in our unit constitutes disloyalty. In a similar vein, the writer also attacks Ambassador Chase Untermeyer, who is currently serving in Qatar, and is a CENTCOM familiar. He asserts that Ambassador Untermeyer's membership in Ghost Troop is disloyal as well, and calls for his investigation.

Allow me to clarify how the the ambassador came to be a Ghost Troop.

Chase Untermeyer and I have been close friends for over a decade. We shared many of the same editorial and political connections in Houston before the Iraq war, and he was my mentor as well as friend. We met regularly for years, and never tired of exchanging ideas and analysis about everything imaginable. When George W. Bush was the governor of Texas, Chase introduced me to the Bush team as a good candidate to become GWB's speech writer. He also introduced me to the Wall Street Journal and NBC, news organizations for which I later wrote both editorials and essays. He was my best man in my 2002 wedding.

Chase and I were in close contact when I formed Ghost Troop, and since he was a former Assistant Secretary of the Navy (under President Reagan), I offered him command of Ghost Troop shortly after forming it in the summer of 2003. He knew and understood my motives for forming the unit, and declined command, but requested to serve as the unit chaplain instead.

Conclusion and Request for Investigation

General Green, as the Ghost Troop Commander, I know my Ghost Troops, especially important ones like Ambassador Untermeyer and Sergeant First Class Donald Buswell. By their membership in our unit, they vouch for me and mine, their comrades in Ghost Troop. We are as proud of our members and missions as any military unit in the US Armed Forces. We enjoy a unique camaraderie because we have always served the oath, and obeyed the duty, of duty of the US Armed Forces.

In its recent Hamdan vs. Rumsfeld decision, the Supreme Court has decided to hold all government officials responsible for illegal acts, even when those who commit them claim special exemption from law or national defense justifications. Hamdan vs. Rumsfeld will dictate the way future investigations will judge present acts like the current one of official retaliation. I believe the very existence of Ghost Troop, formed out of many Armed Services veterans from many echelons of command, will make it clear that the Armed Forces teach their men how to act rightly, even though some unworthy members of the Armed Forces have been acting wrongly.

I request that you investigate the Signal Corps article written against Sergeant Buswell, Ambassador Untermeyer and Ghost Troop.

PS: Last week I gave a national update on Ghost Troop in a one-hour interview with journalist Michael Wolsey: I shall presently post this complaint as an article of evidence to you and the American People.
