Iowa authorities have decided not to prosecute a senior U.S. Strategic Command officer who is being investigated on suspicion of passing counterfeit poker chips at a Council Bluffs casino — leaving his fate in the hands of military authorities.
Vice Adm. Timothy Giardina, StratCom's deputy commander, remains under investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service in connection with the June incident. He was suspended in early September from all duties relating to classified materials.
