His comments about D-Day smack of the filthy closet full of sins -- and I'm sure it isn't just "the love that dare not speak its name" but something much, much worse and very very sexually perverted. If the object of the blackmail was merely to expose him as a homosexual, even Lindsay must know that these days all you have to do is come out publicly and say, "Sure, so I'm gay. Big deal."

It's gotta be something foul, and criminally so.

As far as who's doing the blackmailing, maybe Putin. Maybe neo-Nazis. Some person or entity entity that will get its testes tickled at the thought of a former full Colonel in the U.S. Air Force (a military lawyer/judge) disparaging the military and, of course, keeping a fool like Graham on a short chain. (So probably Putin).
