Yeah, this is just the type of person we want in the military. The Gov't was incredibly lenient on this lolo. She should have gotten jail time. No doubt she will in the future. She won't stop being nuts, and she will continue her bizarre behaviors. She needs mental health assistance.

<<Despite the warning, Smith admitted sending 521 more e-mails to Caslen over the next 14 months. However, Caslen did not report Smith to authorities.>>

She sounds like a wacko, but there's got to be more to this story than what is printed here.

did he have sex with her? Was he using her as an emotional bulwark so he could handle his job? Were the emails about how he had used her for gratification while he kept up his 9 to 5 appearances? Inquiring minds would like to know....

The article fails to tell the full story. The emails weren't only written to Caslen but to a number of generals over several years. These emails were 'tweets' of sorts, and were not threatening.
Smith only wrote Caslen, personally, a few dozen emails over 3 years.
In fact, during the same time, Caslen wrote her 2-3 dozen emails that were very flirtatious, and encouraging of a deeper relationship.
See http://improvingtheArmy.blogspot.com for more, although not all, details.

In fact, Caslen lied to federal investigators (a felony offense) twice. The first time, he told them that he had no personal relationship with Smith whatsoever.
[I guess he forgot about those 11 pm and 3:30 am emails he sent her. Or his offer to her to email him whenever to ask any spiritual question she wanted. He went out of his way to compliment her and console her when her family members died as well.]
Then, Caslen changed his mind and decided that he had sent a 'few friendly emails to her' but that he was first concerned in August 2006.
Then, he changed his mind again and decided that the first time he was concerned was June 2007.[I think someone reminded him of his comforting emails and offers of mentorship in late 2006 and early 2007. See, he willingly gave all the emails that Smith sent him. But he conveniently forgot to give his security detail the 3 dozen emails Caslen sent her.]
Typical of the Army, they never questioned the general or made him write a statement.

ImprovingTheArmyBlogspot and He Lied To Investigators appears to be written by this same Ms. Smith. Post appears to be the same style of writing. From her picture and how she has wriiten her blog, I'd say she's either very insecure and in need, rejected one to many times or these officers have need to get an eye exam and medical checkup. According to her blog. No matter where she's stationed, she has had some kind of run-in with authoritative figures in the military. Not saying these officers are perfect angels, but it's too convenient. There's more to these stories than we suspect. The constant e-mails and warnings seem baffling. Let alone just recently, the military has been cracking down on unwanted behavior among it's personnel. Maybe roving reporter Karen Ashley can bring these and other questions to the inquiring minds.

On what do you base your false assertion below? Look at her military record on

http://debrasmilitaryrecord.blogspot.com and you'll see that your statement is false.

She's worked on Top Secret detainees issues (and knows that the US Govt tortures detainees and knows the names of the US Govt officials...including Caslen...who have condoned and even lied about the US Govt's involvement in that toture). Rumsfeld, for example, commented repeatedly to reporters that he didn't recall after they finally stopped torturing a detainee out of his mind and brought him back on 'the books.'

In fact, Smith has received the highest possible evaluations from Delta Force generals and others. As the judge even commented, since you obviously weren't at the sentencing hearing, her 'performance over her dozen plus years in the military has been uniformly EXCELLENT.' That's a point that the military doesn't want to highlight even though it is obvious enough to a judge.

And Caslen is such a liar that he stated to the reporter that the issue was not professional at all.

That's odd, because every single email he wrote Smith was from his official pentagon email account, his official West Point email account, or his official US Army email account.

If you look at his record in his various commands, you'll see he loves to hammer people for the slightest or made-up, infraction...while ignoring his own. All the while he preaches that 'behavior has consequences'. That must mean for everyone else but him.

Using official email accounts for personal business, much less the flirtatious, all-hours-of-the-night emails that Caslen was sending Smith, is a gross violation of Dept of Defense regulations. That, in and of itself, is another crime.

[Let's not forget his lies to federal investigators...another felony crime. The FBI and the DOJ have repeated...repeatedly...ignore d Caslen's crimes. His felony crimes. Yet, they seek to go after women who these leaders have preyed upon. Smith didn't know Caslen before he sought her out.]

Why did Caslen wait a year after he purportedly told Smith to stop writing him to report the issue?

Because he was under investigation himself at the time....and was in danger of not being promoted or obtaining division command. So, he waited until he hit ground on Hawaii and didn't even wait 2 weeks to seek out investigators and give emails. See..his promotion and division command were secure, so he could then take revenge.

Revenge by lying to federal investigators about his relationship with Smith. Revenge by withholding material evidence (his flirtatious and intimate emails he sent Smith) from investigators.

You won't be able to find one personal email Smith ever sent from her official Army accounts, like Caslen did. She knew better. But he states that none of this had anything to do with his 'profession.'

Interesting to say the least.

You are very observant. I agree that the poster is Smith. But I don't 100% discount her assertions.

If she were innocent and a victim of sexual harrasment, her attorney would be raising the roof with the media. Instead they're strangely silent.

Better to not have someone like this working a job in which guns are readily available.

I think there is a cover-up of some sort and both parties are in the wrong. However, proving it in the huge machine such as the army is like speaking out against the Mormon Church as an insider. Nothing will ever come of it, and you just better accept your situation and continue living in a lie.

I'd recommend that people cancel their subscriptions to the Honolulu Star.
Facts are:
No - Smith is NOT an Army Reservist.
No - she did NOT send 12 more emails from a different account.
No - she didn't send disrespectful emails to the HRC Commander colonel. That colonel harassed Smith so much that a 2 star general had to intervene and tell the colonel to stop it. That colonel was also abruptly retired.
No - she wasn't disrespectful to the boss at Leavenworth. He fondled her and she reported him. Therefore, he promised her that he'd make the process very agonizing for her if she didn't leave voluntarily. She didn't leave voluntarily.
No - she did NOT receive a reprimand for her performance from 2004-2006. See her evaluations at http://debrasmilitaryevaluations.blogspot.com
No - she was NOT gaining unauthorized access to classified material.
I don't know where this reporter gained his false information, but if this reckless reporting continues, he and the Honolulu Star WILL be SUED for SLANDER. Slander is that which is untrue and maliciously put forth, as this reporter's accusations obviously are.

NO NO NO. Smith did NOT attach any classified material to an unclassified email.
It seems that this reporter was looking at a civil law suit and misreading a memo put forth by the HRC Commander colonel.
That colonel, who harassed Smith for 3 years straight (although she still managed to obtain excellent evaluations from her bosses), was reprimanded by a 2 star and abruptly retired.
This reporter is extremely dangerous and everything he writes should be highly questioned. It's obvious that he, and the Honolulu Star, fawn over media-needy Caslen. He did not stop to gain facts before spewing hurtful lies. That's slander and he is skating on THIN ICE.
What people don't realize is that in binding plea agreements, not even the judge sees the evidence.
People, especially this reporter who takes it upon himself to report court actions, need to educated themselves a bit better before passing judgment.
