Sergeant of Marines Lawrence Gordon Hutchins, III

Sergeant of Marines Lawrence Gordon Hutchins, III

All –


There are too many addresses to send this email to all in one shot.  So, it is also going out to dozens more in the second wave…



I was at the hearing at CampPen yesterday, and it was a long day.  We were in court for nearly 8 hours.  What I couldn’t tell you before, is what you will see in the short video below regarding his new civilian attorney Chris Oprison (now assisting his assigned military attorneys).  Chris used to be one of president George Bush’s attorneys, when he was president.   Also, Chris is a former Marine and has had cases heard before the Supreme Court as well.  He is a genius in the courtroom.  And he has taken on this case pro bono.  I was unable to make the hearing that followed today, but having just talked with Larry, it was more of the same by Chris today.  And he is just getting started.  The August court martial that was delayed to the Oct/Nov timeframe has now been re-scheduled for next January.  The trial date is a moving target, and I expect that we will see further delays.  Now, after eight long years of getting the short end of the stick, the playing field is level.  And at long last Larry and his legal team are able to “Roll in Hot.”  The defense is now on the offense.


For those who are not entirely familiar with Larry’s case, if you google Sgt Larry Hutchins or Hamdaniya, it will bring you up to speed.  However, what you will most likely see in print is far short of the entire story.  As most of you know, I have been involved in Larry’s case for the past four years.  I was appointed by his outstanding appellate attorney, Maj Babu Kaza, to act as Larry’s legal liaison for the three years while he was incarcerated at the MCAS Miramar Consolidated Brig.  Prior to that, Larry, was at Ft. Leavenworth and the Camp Pendleton brig.  He was initially sentenced to 15 years behind bars.  His case was overturned in 2009, he was released only to find himself re-tried again, and he was re-incarcerated.  As you research this case you will see how politics reared its ugly head that has caused this to continue on for eight long years now.


Without question, his case is the most well known, and probably most infamous, in military legal circles.  It is extraordinary what he and his family have had to endure these past eight years.  In November of 2012, the highest court in the military legal system, the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces (CAAF), found in his favor regarding an illegal NCIS investigation conducted in-country in Iraq.  They had essentially locked him up in solitary confinement in little more than a CONEX box for a week.  Even upon his release based on the CAAF decision, a little over a year ago, the prosecution still wanted him held in pre-trial confinement until the outcome of their third attempt at court martial.  Had it not been for the intervention of his appellate attorney, Maj Kaza and the Honorable Bing West (former Vietnam Marine, Asst. SecDef in the Reagan administration and highly accomplished novelist), Larry would still be behind bars today.  Additionally you should know that former congressman and retired army LtCol Allen West has been an advocate for Larry and the “Leavenworth 10” since the beginning of this unbelievable journey.  I have nothing but the highest admiration for the above mentioned men, as I know you do.


Please don’t ask me how this whole evolution for eight years can still be continuing on until this time.  I have learned more about the military legal system in the past four years than I ever thought possible, or wanted to… and I still don’t understand it.  It’s the old adage, “one step forward and two steps back” when it comes to me, as just when I think I have it kinda figured out I discover that I still don’t know a damned thing.  Lastly, you should know that in the past year since Larry’s release, he has truly been what he always was… A Sergeant of Marines.  He is the top rated Sgt amongst 33 others in his command.  For those who will be doing further research, believe me, you will be scratching your head as to how this could ever happen to one of our own.  We never left a Marine in need behind in a hot LZ in Vietnam… and we are not about to change our ways now.


So, here is the latest unbelievable thing that the prosecution has pulled.  In the link below, the reference by Bridget Naso has to do with CID a few months back coming into the CampPen defense attorney’s offices, and required that the attorneys stand out in the passageway as they rifled through all the lawyer-client confidential files throughout the entire complex that encompasses the defense attorney’s offices.  To say the least there has been nothing but outrage out this way as to this latest event.  They were looking for a cellphone that was pertinent to another case, but after finding the phone early on, they continued to go through all of the other defense attorney’s case files, including Larry’s.  On the stand yesterday, Chris questioned the CID agents and others.  He caught them during questioning in several instances of “inconsistencies.”  To put it into a vernacular we are all familiar with… “He ripped them a new one.”

In Sgt. Hutchins’ case…About that autopsy report


“A major Iraq War crimes case was upended Wednesday when the military’s highest court dismissed the conviction of a former Camp Pendleton Marine accused of murdering an unarmed man in Hamdaniya, Iraq, in 2006.

“The Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled in Hutchins’ favor because a confession obtained by naval investigators in Iraq violated his Fifth Amendment rights, according to the opinion posted on the court’s website.

“Hutchins has been confined for about 6.5 years since he was detained in Iraq in May 2006. He was imprisoned for four years at Fort Leavenworth, until his conviction was dismissed by the U.S. Navy-Marine Corps Court of Appeals. The court determined he did not receive a fair trial because a lawyer was improperly excused from his defense.”

17 March 2011 OBAMA TREASON COMPLAINT (click here)

Thursday 17 March 2011

From: Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, United States Navy Retired

To: The Federal Grand Juries sitting in Knoxville, Tennessee

SUBJECT: Renewed formal criminal complaint naming Barack Hussein OBAMA and OBAMA’s CRIMINAL ASSISTANTS in commission of the crime of TREASON against the United States of America.

1.     We are arrived at a point in our Nation’s life where Barack Hussein OBAMA and OBAMA’s CRIMINAL ASSISTANTS threaten the life of our Nation to the point of death. OBAMA and his CRIMINAL COHORTS install an unconstitutional, rival and competing government that replaces our United States Constitution.

2.     Mr. OBAMA’s unconstitutional government is thriving and growing. Under Mr. OBAMA the United States Constitution no longer operates. Mr. OBAMA and his OUTLAW PARTNERS enforce only their own form of unconstitutional, treasonous government.

3.     Proofs and evidences of OBAMA’s TREASON are manifest. Moreover we have Mr. OBAMA’s two-year silent agreement and consent.

4.     Chillingly we find senior military officials, command racketeers, no more obedient to the United States Constitution than Mr. OBAMA.  I point to the ATTAINDER courts-martial of Army Colonel, Doctor Terrence Lakin and Sergeant of Marines Lawrence Gordon Hutchins, III. I point to the militarization of domestic emergency services and civilian police forces.

5.     Law enforcement officials of every stripe are paralyzed in their unwillingness to do their duty. State and Federal judges accept OBAMA’s TREASON and are derelict in the performance of their duties (enclosures below).

6.      I on the other hand refuse to accept the complicity of cowards. I insist and inspire YOU, the Federal Grand Jury, in the exercise of your Great Commission: The Power of Presentment. You are capable of transforming a collective fear and shame darkening this land in to the peaceful exercise of constitutionally recognized law enforcement.

7.     Be mindful and clear on this point, this point alone: We the People—in one aspect or another—are the final arbiters in this matter. We the People hold in our hands the final appeal our Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution command.

Here endth the lesson,

Hutchins should be released

“I think it is despicable that Sgt. Hutchins is still being held in the brig. This young man did nothing wrong, as far as I am concerned. He was at war. …

“Personally, I smell something rotten and it ain’t in Denmark — it is right here in our own backyard. It is time to release Sgt. Hutchins, return him to his rank and apologize for the wrongdoing done to him in the name of politics in the upper echelon of the Marine Corps.”

Sergeant of Marines Lawrence Gordon Hutchins, III

On Thursday, 22 April 2010 the Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals threw out Marine Corps Sergeant Lawrence Gordon Hutchins, III attainder court-martial findings and sentence.

And yet Sergeant Hutchins is still in stir at Fort Leavenworth this moment.

Do you need to be told what you can do to free MAINE SERGEANT Larry Hutchins today with back pay, back benefits, and back promotion!?

In Sgt. Hutchins’ case…About that autopsy report

Sergeant of Marines Lawrence Gordon Hutchins, III

“He was just in shock. He said this is the first good thing that’s happened in this case…”


And more…

NAVY SEALS Second Class Petty Officer Matthew McCabe, Second Class Petty Officer Johnathan Keefe, & First Class Petty Officer Julio Huertas, Jr.

“Charging the Navy SEALS sends the wrong message to both our troops and to the terrorists. How can we ask our bravest, most elite troops to carry out dangerous missions for our sake, and then have our own government charge them with crimes and threaten to punish them for doing their jobs? How can we expect them to do their jobs with the threat of court-martial over their heads?” asked Gonzalez.


Marine Sergeant Lawrence Gordon Hutchins, III

Monday, 15 March 2010 full-board disciplinary officer hearing set for Marine Sergeant Lawrence Gordon Hutchins, III.

Defense JAG, Marine Captain Kaza reports:

En Banc” just means that the entire Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals will sit in judgment of this case. There are roughly 12 judges assigned to the Court. Normally, an appeal will only be considered by a panel of 3 judges. But for cases that are deemed significantly important, they will sit “En Banc,” which means all of them will consider it. From my recollection, this Court only considers cases “en banc” roughly 2-3 times per year, out of the hundreds of cases they consider. This does not necessarily mean they are leaning toward the prosecution or defense, it just means that they consider the legal issues raised by Sgt Hutchins’ appeal to be very important.

The hearing on March 15 is an “oral argument.” That is where counsel for both sides of an appeal have the opportunity to address the appellate judges regarding technical points of law. As this case is being considered “En Banc” all of the judges assigned to the Court will be present for the argument. The judges will usually ask several questions, to help flesh out their position on a legal issue. It is very different from a trial, as it is not as much about emotion or rhetorical skill (although that can be important), as it is about knowledge of case precedents and how they should or shouldn’t apply to the facts of the case. The oral argument is more of a technical tool for the judges to help them analyze a case than it is a “closing argument” which will convince them whether to reverse or affirm a conviction.

I wouldn’t expect them to issue their decision for at least another month after that, if not longer.

If we lose the appeal before the Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals (which is statistically likely), then we can appeal to the highest military court, the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. That Court is made up of 5 civilian judges, appointed by the President for terms of 15 years. After that is a potential appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Former Marine Judge Advocate, Marines, Brigadier General David Brahms adds this:

It is a big deal for the [Navy/Marine Corps Military Disciplinary Review Board] as a whole (all twelve members) to agree to hear the case as in Larry’s situarion. It is rare. In most cases a [smaller panel] of the whole [Board] hears the case. The EN BANC decision means there is a big issue and the [Board] is convinced it required special attention. I caution it is not evidence [Sergeant Hutchins] will win.

CAREER CRIMINAL BILL DELAHUNT...Say "buh bye" Bill! (Photo courtesy of the Boston Globe)

JAG HUNTER here with Sergeant of Marines Timothy Joseph Harrington:

“The specific allegation was that U.S. Marines detained Hashim [Ibrahim] Awad, 52, walked [Awad] away from his home, and shot [Awad] dead.”

And so began the murder case against Marine Sergeant Lawrence Gordon Hutchins, III and his squad of 8 – 7 Marines, one Navy Corpsman…the Camp Pendleton Eight.

Hashim Ibrahim Awad is still alive and working in OBAMA’S Homeland Security office for all we know.

We have no reason to believe Awad is dead.

There is no credible public evidence to believe Awad ever existed.

It’s simply impossible for the U.S. government to prove Awad was ever shot by U.S. Marines.

Still, the Camp Pendleton Eight are being punished for Awad’s murder.

26 April 2006 is the date given for the combat event.

Iraqi civilians reported their pretend relative Hashim Ibrahim Awad the victim of a Marine Corps murder.

Iraqi civilians who remain strangers and mystery witnesses gave Hashim Ibrahim Awad’s name to Naval Criminal Investigative Service special agents.

Hashim Awad, like OBAMA, has no papers. Awad’s life history before the 26 April 2006 combat event is unknown.

Naval Criminal Investigative Service Special Agent James H. Connolly was the lead investigator.

Connolly never bothered to positively identify strangers offering “eye witness” testimony. Connolly never ID’d any of the “pretend” relatives. Connolly never positively identified Awad!

Connolly collected up a hair brush from someplace to use as DNA evidence.

Connolly and his NCIS cronies represented the brush belonged to Awad.  Some Iraqi mystery witness stranger told Connolly about the brush.

On 6 June 2006 Connolly and his NCIS goons exhumed a body of an unknown Iraqi man other Iraqis strangers reported to Connolly was Hashim Awad.

The identity of the body was and remains that of a stranger.

Connolly had the stranger’s body flown to the Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner, Dover Air Force Base, Delaware

Navy Doctor Commander Scott A. Luzi conducted an autopsy on 8 June 2006.

Connolly unlawfully identified the dead stranger to Doctor Luzi as an Iraqi man named Hashim Ibrahim Awad.

Again, it was a group of mystery witnesses Iraqi strangers who gave Connolly Awad’s name.

Dr. Luzi concluded the dead man was dead. Cause of death: Multiple gun shot wounds – Homicide.

Ace detective Connolly captured a bone fragment from Luzi’s autopsy that came from the dead stranger’s rib.

Connolly intended the bone fragment to be used in a DNA test comparing hair strands from the brush.

But Connolly knew the DNA samples didn’t match.

Connolly knew the DNA evidence wouldn’t hold up.

Connolly never conducted DNA testing regarding the dug up stranger!

The ghost!

Connolly’s investigation report is a ghost story! Pure fiction! Nothing but the product of Connolly’s imagination!

On 2 July 2007, at the time it was supremely relevant, Marine Corps JAG prosecutors advanced a motion to the military hearing officer requesting the autopsy be accepted as evidence for the prosecution.

Military hearing officer, Marine Lt. Col. Jeffrey Meeks, denied the government motion!

Sergeant Hutchins and his men were accused of murder.

The autopsy report proved their innocence.

The autopsy also further exposed the military discipline scheme for the pernicious iniquity reported over and over on these JAG HUNTER pages.

So court-martial officer Meeks kept the autopsy report out of public view.

But Tim and I have it.

One of the defense team in the Camp Pendleton Eight courts-martial sent a copy of Luzi’s autopsy report to Sergeant Harrington! Tim sent a copy to me.

I have it here now using it for this report. Tim and I have been writing about the hidden autopsy since March 2008.

By the way, none of Connolly’s stranger relatives or stranger “eye witnesses” ever showed up for public examination or cross-examination during the courts-martial!

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus knows all of this. Mabus’ decision announced Tuesday to toss out those CP8 members on active duty works to bury the bogus courts-martial deeper than the Iraqi stranger!

Reporters all over the country have access to this information since handed over to Tim and I.

But the reporters ignore the autopsy report.

Rick Rogers, Mark Walker, Teri Figueroa, Don Conkey, and Gidget Fuentes to name but a few print reporters.

Federal legislators aware of the outrages being visited upon the Camp Pendleton Eight include Representative William Delahunt (MA), and Delahunt’s chief advisor and attorney John Kivlin (Tim spoke to Kivlin earler this morning and Kivlin manifested to Tim every fear a politician experiences in the moments before a career ending exposition is foreseeable).

Norman Dicks and his staffers have known since 2006 (even before the autopsy was publicized). Dave Reichert and his staff know. Arizona Representative John Shadegg is on notice along with my Representative John Duncan. U.S. Senators Patty Murray, Maria Cantwell, Jon Kyl, Tennessee’s Corker and Alexander and John Kerry of Massachusetts along with so many more are all aware!

Then there are those Command Racketeers who are no more obedient to the Constitution than is the counterfeit OBAMA.

Look up the word ATTAINDER!
