This Will Probably Not End Well for Him

Nope. Not at all.

The military announced ­Tuesday that Marine Maj. Mark Thompson — who has long ­insisted that he was falsely accused of having sex with two U.S. Naval Academy students — will face a court-martial on allegations that he lied repeatedly in an effort to prove his innocence.

After revelations about Thompson’s case appeared in The Washington Post, the military charged him in April with making a false official statement and conduct unbecoming an ­officer and a gentleman. The former history instructor is ­accused of lying to a group of Marines who reviewed his case, pushing a comrade to lie for him at Thompson’s 2013 court-martial and lying to The Post about the two students.

It’s that thang, I tell you. As the Greaseman* has told us more than once, it’s the most sought-after commodity in human history and yet, at the same time, it’s the most ruthless predator and most cunning opponent that has every walked the face of the Earth– cruel, insatiable, vindictive, inexorable, both terrible and beautiful to behold, the ruin of many a good man.

Good luck to you, Marine.

 

* You can damn well stand up and @#$%ing salute at the mention of that name, too.
