Appreciate the raw info right or not before its finessed.
Vice Adm. Scott A. Stearney, commander of U.S. 5th Fleet, was found dead in his quarters in Bahrain on Saturday.
A Navy spokesperson didn’t have additional information on the investigation when contacted on Saturday.
“The Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Bahraini Ministry of Interior are cooperating on the investigation, but at this time no foul play is suspected,” read a statement from Richardson.
“Scott Stearney was a decorated naval warrior. He was a devoted husband and father, and he was a good friend to all of us,” Richardson said. “The Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Bahraini Ministry of Interior are cooperating on the investigation, but at this time no foul play is suspected. Rear Adm. Paul Schlise, the deputy commander of 5th Fleet, has assumed command and is maintaining continuity in our responsibilities and posture in the U.S. 5th Fleet.”
Stearney previously served as director of operations at U.S. Central Command in MacDill Air Force Base, Fla. He was a 1982 graduate of the University of Notre Dame. Stearney was designated a Naval Aviator in April 1984, and flew more than 4,500 hours, accumulating more than 1,000 carrier-arrested landings while flying F/A-18 Hornet and F/A-18E/F Super Hornet strike fighters.
His served at sea aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), USS George Washington (CVN-73) and USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69). Ashore, Stearney served as tactics instructor and readiness officer at Navy Fighter Weapons School (TOPGUN).
The Vice Admiral left a Suicide Note containing shocking and utterly horrific information. I am expecting either a copy of the actual letter, or a transcript of it from my former colleagues in the Intelligence Community with whom I worked during my years with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, where I handled National Security Intelligence, Terrorism and Foreign Counter-Intelligence.
I have been given a "heads-up" about this and have also been told it reveals plans to intentionally start World War 3, intentionally go nuclear, and that our military is no longer under the _actual_ control of the American government, but rather has become one, giant, mercenary force whose services are sold to the highest bidder.
At this time, I do NOT know if any of these claims is factual. I await further details and hard evidence. Stay tuned.
Both "The Hill" and CBS News are now confirming this Admiral's death was SUICIDE . . .
Still awaiting alleged suicide note . . .
