    Does anyone know where to find some of the photos from this website?

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/01/27/army.gayporn.ap/index.html
    Army officials are investigating allegations that members of the celebrated 82nd Airborne Division appear on a gay pornography Web site, a spokeswoman said Friday.

    Authorities at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, have begun an inquiry into whether the soldiers' actions violated the military conduct code.

    Division spokeswoman Maj. Amy Hannah declined to say how many paratroopers are involved or identify their unit within the division. A defense official speaking on condition of anonymity said up to seven soldiers are involved.

    Hannah said soldiers questioned will be allowed to seek legal assistance, but she declined to say if any one had been charged.

    "Once the investigation is complete, the chain of command will take appropriate action," Hannah said.

    The military-theme Web site does not appear to make any direct reference to the 82nd Airborne or Fort Bragg. The registered owner of the Web site's domain name lists an address in Fayetteville, the city that adjoins Fort Bragg.

    E-mails to the registered owner were returned Friday as undeliverable, and the phone number listed on the domain-name registration is no longer in service.

    It was reported by the AP that 7airmen were arrested by the military police. Three of them will be subjected to a military tribunal and face separate charges of pandering, sodomy and receiving money for sex...the other four have been dealt with already and have been demoted. The witch hunt begins....so I guess the photos will follow.

    I checked around and saw that some photos that had been on the net were now gone and the web site along with it.

    Orientation does not matter, what matters is behavior. The military, ARMY at least, focuses on three behaviors. SAM, Statement, Acts, and Marriages. I can have gay porn and I can go to a gay bar but if I engage in SAM"S...trouble. If a soldier says he is gay or bisexual an investigation will follow. If a Soldier engages in homosexual/bisexual acts an investigation will follow. If a Soldier marries a Soldier of the same sex an investigation will follow. If the investigation shows such behavior was practiced, then discharge follows. The ARMT has lost lots of good Soldiers due to the policy, and has spents tons of bucks retraining and replacing these soldiers. Is it right....well soldiers know the rules when they volunteer.

    It would be interesting to see, if and when George "W"armonger Bush wants to reinstate a draft, just how much of these policies will be upheld. Do you think they will exclude gays? Probably not. Would I stick around and be drafted? Hell no. Not because I don't want to support my country, but because I would have a real problem with the hypocricy.

    The U. S. Armed forces are at an all-time low for volunteers during "peace" times. Our government needs to wake up and look at countries such as Great Brittain, Canada, Germany, Holland, Sweden, etc... that allow homosexuals to serve openly and freely.

    I'm surprised, that there is some disloyal fairy turning in men to the MP's.

    That is total bullshit. In reality, these soldiers are often outted by homophobic and/or closet-case soldiers. It's not really "Don't Ask / Don't Tell." It's the same fucking witchhunt we've always had. It's getting worse because it gets more press now.

    Shame that the organization designed to protect America's freedoms so flagrantly disavows such freedoms for sexual minorities, and engages in illegal, immoral, unethical and hateful behavior. Ultimately those who should be courtmarshaled are those individuals responsible for such hate.

    I just have to teach what the Army says.....Do not have to agree...personal feelings have no place when teaching the subject to future officers.

    My ex was a Marine and he opened my eyes to how things work in the military if you're a homo. Basically there are lots of fags, plenty of sex but it's all very much on the DL. Personally I've been in the Army, Navy and Marines (balls deep that is). I used to date a buffed black Army guy who fucked me until I could hardly walk...I dated a 6'4" Navy Cop who was a total bottom...we had LOTS of fun. I still smile thinking about him.

    Anyway, the military is the last frontier for us. They are 50 years behind the times, IMHO.

    mistergrosso, apologies we've seemed to have strayed from your original request.
    So in response to it, the website in question was for Dink Flamingo, very similar to Dirk Yates, specialising in paying military men to either j/o or have sex on camera for pay....at this time apparently Dink Flamingo is off-line....but I am sure someone has pictures somewhere, be patient.
    Now, back to the outrage....

    I don't think Pres Bush should take all the blame for gays not being able to serve openly, plain and simple the top brass at the pentagon don't want fags in the military. They think that there will be some sort of sexual problem. Wait, therer already is! There is more hetro sex happening on ships than there is homo sex. (trust me I know) The younger females getting pregnant on purpose to get off the ships, but they don't want to be discharged. I feel that the west coast is a little more relaxed about the homo thing than those on the east coast. I really could tell you some jaw dropping stories.

    Rats! Some great movies too. Hope he can come back.

    AND, too bad for those guys who are now going through hell because they needed to make a little money or wanted to have a little fun doing something that doesn't hurt anyone.

    Not to belittle the struggle against "Don't Ask / Don't Tell" but Matthew makes a good point. Most military guys get paid next-to-nothing. I suspect some of these guys are just trying to feed their families.

    Ok here it is. I read a couple of stories yesterday online one of them named three of the soldiers. It also gave the website and it is very much up and running. And yes, I fell prey to the $25 to get in. (bad me). On the surface it looks pretty interesting but the farther you dig, it seems to be just another gay porn-site. For some reason, I can't fathom str8 or bi guys doing some of the things they are doing. It always has been interesting to me that while on the road and hooking up with another truck driver, they seem to love to have their ass played with BUT SUCK DICK!!!! they aren't queer. It's ok to fuck the hell out of them but not put your dick in their mouth. I doens't make sense to me but hey who am I to questoin it?
    What I'm saying is it doesn't seem these guys are all really military for the same reason that chuck64 said they are affraid of getting outed.

    I don't know about these or any of the other "gay porn scandals" that have periodically plagued all branches of the military over the years. I do remember that when I was stationed aboard Camp Pendleton in the late 1980s, 11th Marines Tank Battalion had a gay porn scandal. No, I was not involved, I was with Headquarters, not 11th Marines.... I was always curious, though, who was involved, did I know any of them, was it any of the cute guys I saw at the Exchange or in the barber shop... etc....

    Any info on the titles of those videos coming out of the "scandal" at Pendleton and MCRD/San Diego in the mid-eighties?? Was this the Yates studios productions? Info, please.
