    APNewsBreak: General investigated over spending | US National Headlines | Comcast

    A four-star Army general who was the first head of the new U.S. Africa Command (WTF)is under investigation and facing possible demotion for allegedly spending hundreds of thousands of dollars improperly on lavish travel, hotels and other items, The Associated Press has learned.

    Gen. William "Kip" Ward has been under investigation for about 17 months, and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is expected to make a final decision on the matter before the end of the month, according to several defense officials.

    The defense officials said Ward is facing numerous allegations that he spent several hundred thousand dollars allowing unauthorized people, including family members, to fly on government planes, and spent excessive amounts of money on hotel rooms, transportation and other expenses when he traveled as head of Africa Command.

    A four-star general is the highest rank in the Army.

    While the exact amount of alleged misspending was not disclosed, the estimated total raises comparisons with the $823,000 allegedly spent by dozens of employees of the General Services Administration, who were accused of lavish spending during an October 2010 conference at a Las Vegas resort.

    Real kicker is they will allow this dirt bag to retire as a 3 star general,what a f@@ked -up County we live in,who the shit needs a phony ass U.S Africa Command in the first place......
