President George W. Bush is likely to approve Rumsfeld's recommendation, but some background on the gassing at Waco - and a small further check - will proof that General Schoomaker is NOT the best choice for human beings, nor the US image...
New US Army Chief of Staff Schoomaker :
Advised To Use Gas On Americans
Promoted since his Waco-disaster:
The FPF - with quite a memory - is uncertain wether Peter J. Schoomaker, the retired general, as new US Army Chief of Staff, is such a good choice : The new American Chief of Staff Peter J. Schoomaker is a famous man :
He was one of the first Americans to use gas on Americans !
This is the official 'US-mainstream press version' ; and no WACO-gas is mentioned :
"Army Chief of Staff Picked : Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld chose Peter J. Schoomaker, 57, who retired from the Army after running the U.S. Special Operations Command from 1997 to 2000.
Schoomaker's selection "may be a signal of how [Rumsfeld] wants to structure the Army," with more emphasis on the mobility, flexibility and agility that are hallmarks of special operations forces, retired Army Gen. George Joulwan said.
President George W. Bush is likely to approve Rumsfeld's recommendation and send Schoomaker's name to the Senate for approval, officials said."
(I hope not, this is clearly somebody who should go to court, HR).
Some background on the gassing at Waco - and a small further check - will proof that General Schoomaker is NOT the best choice....
Schoomaker Advised To Use Gas On Americans
Drudge Report Friday, August 27, 1999
According to publishing sources, the ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION will report on Saturday: Army terrorist experts, including the commander of the top secret Delta Force unit, advised Attorney General Janet Reno to use CS gas against Branch Davidian members!
AJC's Jeff Nesmith is first to report that members of the secret Delta Force, whose presence at the fatal raid was disclosed this week, were involved in planning the operation.
Nesmith names Col. William G. Boykin, the Delta force commander, and Brig. Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker, then a member of the First Cavalry Division at Fort Hood, Texas, as the previously unnamed military advisors who advocated the use of CS gas, a potent form of tear gas. Boykin and Schoomaker, Nesmith reveals, were also members of the failed Iranian hostage rescue mission in 1980.
Both have been promoted since Waco !
