Washington DC - A retired American general and former Vice Chair of the US Joint Chiefs of Stuff who was named last year by the New York Toast newspaper as a crucial player under Dubya's much discredited 'Olympic Games' cyber program is being probed in a new leak inquiry.
Retired Marine General James 'Hoss' Cartwright is under investigation amid claims that Iran illegally obtained thousands of London 2012 Olympic Games tickets by logging on to official ticket sale sites using President George W Bush's password.
Cartwright is thought to be the cryptology genius who first devised the Farsi language program which had the tacit support of the Obama Administration.
This morning US papers named Cartwright as a potential target in an inquiry into the leaking of details into how hundreds of freeloading Iranian shot-putters' relatives managed to blag their way into the London Olympic Stadium last July.
The Justice Department probe will focus on how Tehran-based cyber bullies got hold of data that saw them flock in droves to the London Games where they were feted as honored VIPs in the official US Embassy fun tent.
Cartwright, 69, is staunchly protesting his innocence and can hold his head up high after being cleared on professional misconduct in February 2011 military hearing about the role of a 'young female aide'.
The unnamed officer was caught up in a smear campaign after an anonymous tip-off accused the General of acting inappropriately during a 2009 overseas trip with the aide.
Reports that the two had been involved in an inter-services tennis game of 'mixed doubles' were successfully shot down during the trial.
"It's all a pile of rubbish," said a close contact, "no one should be reading this kind of crap."
