Army Reverses Decision to Kick Out Green Beret Who Confronted Rapist

Sgt. 1st Class Charles MartlandIn a stunning reversal, the U.S. Army decided late Thursday to retain a decoratedGreen Beret it had planned to kick out after he physically confronted a local Afghan commander accused of raping a boy over the course of many days.

Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland confirmed the Army's decision to retain him when reached by Fox News, which has been covering the story in depth for the past eight months and first broke the story of the Army's decision in August to kick out Martland over the incident, which occurred in northern Afghanistan in 2011.

"I am real thankful for being able to continue to serve," said Martland when reached on the telephone by Fox News. "I appreciate everything Congressman Duncan Hunter and his chief of staff, Joe Kasper, did for me."

As first reported by Fox News, while deployed to Kunduz Province, Afghanistan, Martland and his team leader confronted a local police commander in 2011 accused of raping an Afghan boy and beating his mother. When the man laughed off the incident, they shoved him to the ground.

Martland and his team leader were later removed from the base, and eventually sent home from Afghanistan. The U.S. Army has not confirmed the specifics of Martland's separation from service, citing privacy reasons, but a "memorandum of reprimand" from October 2011 obtained by Fox News makes clear that Martland was criticized by the brass for his intervention after the alleged rape. Asked for comment in September 2015, an Army spokesman reiterated, "the U.S. Army is unable to confirm the specifics of his separation due to the Privacy Act."

This Soldier should of been given a medal! Instead, the insane/hussian/mooseslimeloving regime punishes those who fight against such evil.

AMEN.

I supposed if he'd have just stood by and done NOTHING......then they would have charged him with something else right?  Damned if you do, and damned if you don't huh?

The world is crazy.

Ms. Beatty, this administration has made everything crazy, topsy turvy and backwards including the military, judges, criminals, etc.; what is right is wrong and what is wrong is right in this admin's book. OWEbama promised he would fundamentally transform this country and he has into a third world chaos. Cannot wait till he's out of office, maybe then with a great leader we can get back to sanity.

TRUMP 2016!!!

Satan is in control of the minds of the PC socialists and many others working for them.

There is a reason why the motto of the Green Berets is " De Oppresso Liber "

Barack Obamas rules of non-engagement in action

The Obama "stupid war " makes martyrs out of our fired generals at the same time trying to make our enemy look like saints.

In 8 years NOTHING Obama did was any good.

True!  I hope that NO ONE will expect Trump to 'fix it' all in a couple of weeks.  It's going to take TIME, and plenty of it!  I just hope it's not too late!

Considering all the double-standards I've seen when it comes to Cruz vs. Trump......I wouldn't hold my breath on that.  It will probably take an entire first time to make good progress in reversing all the crap obama has done.

I'm glad they reversed their decision, but I feel they owe him more than that - beginning with an apology.

 A moment of righteousness. May it come again.

“Stop Mass Hysteria”  Michael Savage On Current Media Frenzy: It’s Like A Virus, An Epidemic… It Will Die Of Its Own Oxygen Deprivation 

The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft interviewed Dr. Michael Savage on his latest book “Stop Mass Hysteria” this weekend.

“Stop Mass Hysteria” COULD NOT come at a better time. And our discussion with Dr. Savage on this subject was timely to say the least.

Dr. Savage discussed the history of mass hysteria in America from the Salem witch trials to the Trump-Russial collusion witch hunt.

Michael Savage also shared his thoughts on the mass hysteria surrounding the Brett Kavananaugh confirmation hearings.

Dr. Michael Savage: Let me just say starting from the beginning that there is a huge difference between mass hysteria and justified concern. And this is something we have to understand. There are imagined threats and then there is real danger as we all know. And this is an imagined threat – That Kavanaugh poses a threat to all women on the planet that he’s a mad rapist. That he will be on the Supreme Court running around and making the climate of rape more acceptable. This is the greatest example of mass hysteria since the Trump derangement syndrome. And it is a continuation of course, of the hatred of Trump and their hatred for those of us who supported Donald Trump, and Donald Trump’s agenda more than Donald Trump. It’s really not about Donald Trump it’s about the agenda which is largely based on modern nationalism that I offered for many, many years.

Dr. Savage is truly brilliant. He publishes a book on mass hyteria and the the Kavanaugh confirmation comes along.

Dr. Savage goes on to say the number one greatest threat facing America today is radical Islam. “For the last 1,400 years radical Islam has been at war with the world. This is not Islamophobia as the mainstream media would have you believe. It is history.”

Michael Savage took some time to bash CNN in his chapter titled “From Salem to CNN” where he compares the two asking, “They’re not too different are they?”

Michael went on to describe the real “war on women” is the radical feminists who are actually debasing feminists and debasing women across America with false accusations, or exaggerated accusations.

Dr. Savage talked about the danger of mass hysteria, “It’s like a virus. As a trained epidemiologist it’s really like an epidemic. It’s almost a medical situation, this madness is very similar to an epidemic that continues to spread though a population without discriminating who it attacks. That’s the point. And so in stopping mass hysteria I try to bring real history to the discussion rather than straight polemics.”

Near the end of the interview I asked Michael about what will eventually the end of mass hysteria. Michael offered this, “We have to believe at the end reason will trump hysteria. We have to believe. I believe this mania we are living through will die of its own oxygen deprivation.”

Let’s hope Dr. Savage is right. He usually is. God help us.
