UPDATE: Navy Spokesman Denies ANY Charges Against Navy Lt. Commander #Chattanooga

As Reported By The Chattanoogan:

UPDATE: A spokesman for the U.S. Navy on Sunday denied reports that disciplinary charges will be filed against Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White for discharging an unauthorized weapon on federal property.

According to a post of Facebook and other social media sites, a statement reads, “Stories of Navy personnel being charges with an offense are not true. There is still a long way to go in reviewing the facts of this tragic incident, but at this time we can confirm no service member has been charged with an offense.”

Several news outlets, including this one, jumped on a report by national columnist Allen West on Saturday that stated he was enraged after he had confirmed that LTC White, who drew his personal sidearm in the July 16 terrorist attack on a Navy Reserve Center in Chattanooga, would face a reprimand and could possibly be court marshaled.

Roy Exum: Navy Denies Any Changes – Chattanoogan.com

Via Allen West August 1, 2015

Lieutenant Commander Timothy White, I await your call, and I will not rest until these charges against you have been dropped. You stay strong. You showed that you are Steadfast and Loyal. And we will not allow you to be abandoned to the perfumed princes of the Pentagon…and the White House. America shall rally to your cause!

    It is not over

    • Don

      I disagree. I doubt they move forward, but everybody knows the military does things indirectly sometimes. In other words, although I doubt the Navy moves forwarded with what they intended according to the original story, my guess is that this officer is punished in other ways. His career is probably toast.

      • Louie Griffey

        It is not the military I am worried about. As a Veteran of 21 years this is the worst leadership American Soldiers has ever had. Under Obama I will not be surprised if Homeland Security or the FBI get involved to appease the Muslims. Like I said it is not over.

  • Pansy the Russian

    Hair splitting, no one said they had. They said the intended to. Let’s see if they dare now.

  • hurricanepaul

    Where did this story originate from?

    • Uncle Ruckus

      Allen WEST!! He lied and said he got a SECRET TEXT

      • Rex Thorne

        And it worked to keep the right-wingers angry and confused for at least one more day. Will they ever wake up?

        • Don

          This has nothing to do with right or left wing. This has to do with sane or insane. If the Navy never considered doing something to this officer, why hasn’t it publically praised him as he clearly deserves?

          • Don

            By the way, the same is true for Obama.

        • Uncle Ruckus

          They are funny

      • Don

        That is a lie. There is no evidence he didn’t get a text. You are lying.

        • Uncle Ruckus

          Right….he claimed something that cannot be verified

          • Don

            Cannot be certified? Hardly nothing can be certified. Your statement calling him a liar certainly can’t be “certified.”

          • Uncle Ruckus

            Look again dimwit

          • Don

            No, you are a liar. You accused that man of being a liar, and you had no basis for doing that. You need to have more respect for people and you need to be more honest. There is nothing about the Navy’s most recent statement that in any way indicates this man lied about anything. I realize you are a troll but your lies should not go unrebutted.

          • Uncle Ruckus

            The navy’s response tells me he is lying along with the other lies he had told!!! BTW… How is that takeover of Texas going?

          • Don

            You are not being honest. The Navy’s statement says nothing of the kind. By the way, I know nothing about any takeover of Texas. You are obviously a troll. If anything Texas is going to do the taking over, not vice versa.

          • Uncle Ruckus

            I said allen west promotes that stupid theory… He has no creditability

          • Don

            You have no credibility.

  • L.M.C. Oma

    I don’t see a denial here. I see a “We’re still looking into it.”

  • Pam

    They will, Obama will see to it. He will be too afraid this trend will spread .

  • Uncle Ruckus

    why aren’t his followers asking who sent him that text? Why is Allen West lying?

    • Don

      There is no evidence of a lie based on these statements. “No charges have been filed” does not mean that they were not considering it. I have seen really stupid charges over the years including a man with a broken back who was charged with having a “club” which was his cane (by legal definition if a physical object is designed for a use other than hitting people such as a baseball bat or crow bar, it is not a club just because it could be used as a club; regardless of technicalities hitting a man with a broken back with a charge of having an illegal club is just asinine when the man did nothing with the cane other than use it as a cane and in fact the man did nothing wrong at all the cop was just being an A-Hole). My point with the Cane story is that some prosecuting authorities just demonstrate no common sense. This may be worse than no common sense though as many have suggested. I think the internet serves a useful service as almost a proxy for votes to keep “authorities” from doing stupid things as may have happened here.

  • Lou9999

    If the story was true about the charges going to be filed, the Navy was able to read “the tea leaves” and see the tidal wave of $Hit that was coming their way. Much better to do nothing.

    • Rex Thorne

      The story was fantasy. The wingnut outrage of the day, to stop their marks from thinking, and realizing how badly misled they are by scoundrels like West. There’s a lot invested in keeping Conservatives confused and angry.

      • Don

        Your statement has no basis in fact.

        • Uncle Ruckus

          Seriously?? The man promotes conservatives are going to be put in FEMA camps

          • Don

            Look, the argument that something is obviously not true because it is “crazy” is a bad argument, because a lot of “crazy” things are true. It used to be “crazy” and obviously not true that late term babies were being killed and their tissue used for various things. Now, it seems indisputable that is actually true. You know what the sources of those videos are being attacked, etc. It is at best intellectual laziness and naïve to just assume something is false because it is “crazy.” This government has put people in camps before. Other governments have also. This government has done a lot of things I thought it would never do. The point is that I have an open mind on that issue.

        • (((Nunya)))

          the only evidence is a mysterious text. Thats it, thats the totality of the evidence that there was going to be an arrest. If you’re interested in actual facts, then lets try this one: no arrest has taken place. See now, thats a fact. Your turn, show us a fact that proves he is being arrested

          • Lou9999

            I am sure that there are 10 parts to story. What usually happens is some lawyers or staff members start talking about violations. Finally, somebody in the chain tells everybody to stand down.

    • unclewiggly

      Hey ya,der.en so you GOPigsanteas are always confused,en so.You people are more to be pitied than laughed at,then again I’ll keep on a grinnin..ya der.

      • Lou9999

        And this ladies and gentlemen, is why I don’t do drugs.

        • unclewiggly

          Alaska hillbilly Sarah speaks that pig Latin,Who can forget that loud mouth spewing word salad.I wonder if Glen Robinson would do her now.LOL

          • Lou9999

            Well, now I know where to donate my charitable contributions. Drug Rehab Centers and English Learning Centers.

        • sweetqueen777

          Really. What the hell is he trying to say anyway??? Is that even English??

          • Lou9999

            Somebody is doing drugs. He must have had his head in a bong for the last 30 years.

    • Cindy Cook

      I’m sure social media outrage had them really shaking in their boots!! How bout there was nothing to the story about filing charges in the first place. IF the Navy would have felt there was wrong doing involved they wouldn’t have let a “tidal wave” of potential $hit from a bunch of idiots influence them in what they felt was lawful!

      • Don

        Bull. Attack the messenger. I see no indication that the message was not accurate. I see nothing in the statement suggesting the Navy wasn’t considering the charge at one point or even that it will not make the charge at a future point. All they have said is there is no charge at this point and they are still investigating.

        • (((Nunya)))

          Then show the actual text…… why not show the text and where it came from then? I could send him a text telling him anything and he could use that as his evidence of some bizarre alien conspiracy. The reality is that you WANT to believe these things are real and you’ll take ANY piece of evidence no matter how obscure. The facts are: he has not been charged with anything.

      • Uncle Ruckus

        Allen west has promoted the Obama is taking over Texas idiotacy…. These loons will believe anything

        • Don

          Hey dumb ass, Obama has done something along those lines. Texas was considering a law making it explicit that the TSA cannot touch the genitals of children (that is already the law of course but Texas was going to make clear that there is no implicit exception for the TSA). Well, the government threatened Texas with consequences (a no fly zone over Texas) if Texas passed that law. I would say that is a partial take over of Texas (interference with its sovereignty over a basic issue like governance of crimes within the State).

          • Uncle Ruckus

            Right….so you are saying Jade Helm was to take over Texas?

          • Don

            I said nothing about Jade Helm.

          • Uncle Ruckus

            Well that is what allen west promotes

          • Don

            I don’t know anything about that, and I am not interested in discussing that at this time.

          • Uncle Ruckus

            Goes to the mans creditability

          • (((Nunya)))

            So you’re going to prove one piece of fiction is correct by submitting as evidence another piece of conspiracy fiction?

      • Lou9999

        You don’t know the current US Navy. There are no Admiral Halsey’s anymore. Many of them are very political.

    • Uncle Ruckus

      Right or allen west LIED

      • Don

        There is no evidence he lied.

        • Uncle Ruckus

          The navy response is proof he lied

          • Don

            No, it isn’t.

          • Uncle Ruckus

            Yep..it is

          • J_in_TX

            Turn in your military retirement. You are a disgrace to the military and a liar.

          • Uncle Ruckus

            are you that stupid…what more evidence do you need to prove the man LIED??

          • J_in_TX

            I’ve met LTC West and don’t know him to be a liar. I already know you are a liar.

          • Uncle Ruckus

            This proves he is a liar

  • HyperSpiral

    Wait wait wait hold up, you mean to tell me that the guy whose claim to fame is resigning from the military to avoid a court martial for getting false intelligence from an Iraqi policeman unaffiliated with any terrorists by using torture, long known to be ineffective for doing anything other than helping sadists get their rocks off, is an unreliable source?

    Who would have guessed?

    • Don

      That is unfair. You don’t know that.

      • Uncle Ruckus

        Completely fair assessment of the man…this isn’t the first time he has been caught lying

        • Don

          He has not been caught lying.

  • BillWestern

    I just got a text message that doesn’t say anything about Lt. Cmdr. White but says that Abdulazeez is being considered for some posthumous award. Hopefully Allen West can chase this down!

  • Uncle Ruckus

    “Ladies and gents, resulting from the text message I received yesterday, I can confirm that the United States Navy is bringing charges against Lt. Cmdr Timothy White for illegally discharging a firearm on federal property”
    Allen West….. LIAR

    • mustang

      You liberal tool. Did you ever serve your country. If not. STFU.

      • Uncle Ruckus

        What doest that have to do with allen lying?

  • (((Nunya)))

    You’re going to be waiting for a long time for charges to be dropped that were never filed in the first place. smh

  • https://disqus.com/home/discuss/channel-darkpoet/ Letem Dangle

    Was it the public pressure caused by the original story that got the navy to say it wasn’t charging White or was this a blatant lie to begin with?

  • Henry Jeleniewicz

    Dale Booher. Allen West was allowed to resign for allowing torture of a prisoner I approve of torture, and not just this waterboarding krap.

    • Rob

      Then enlist.

    • J_in_TX

      He didn’t resign. He retired.

    • A Double

      I approve of torture. Hey slobodan, go back to whatever third world dictatorshithole and stay there. In this country, we have the 8th amendment

    • sweetqueen777

      I totally agree. While I appreciate the “take the high road” approach, if one of those camel pokers had a member of my family, I would peel their skin off, if I thought it would make them reveal what I needed to know. And, personally, the Gitmo crew should have been put in front of the firing squad long ago.
