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.

Donald Trump Fuels Viral ‘Loser CNN’ Meme

ALERT ALERT

Tom Fitton: Trump Was Victimized, Targeted by FBI,
Clinton Campaign, Russian Operatives, Obama Admin
and Fusion GPS

Judicial Watch founder and President Tom Fitton hammered the corrupt Mueller investigation on FOX and Friends Weekend on Saturday morning. Tom blasted the corrupt Obama Justice Department and declared the Trump-Russia collusion investigation over after Friday’s sham announcement of the indictment of 13 Russians.

Tom Fitton calls out the corrupt Justice Department on their criminal activity against candidate and President Trump.

Tom Fitton: At the end we have the massive Russia investigation that finds no collusion with the Trump Campaign. I don’t understand why we are still talking about a Special Counsel investigating the president in light of this indictment… Look those who say the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians are going to have to start providing evidence other than the Clinton-DNC dossier. Look this was in the news this week. We had the Susan Rice memo indicting Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Sally Yates, James Comey and Susan Rice in a conspiracy to get Trump on Russia. You had information that the number four at the Obama Justice Department, Bruce Ohr, hid information on his relationship with the Clinton Campaign cash machine – basically Fusion GPS that was collaborating with the Russia to launch dirt or really defamatory dirt against President Trump into the FBI-DOJ apparatus. And now you have this indictment of Russians abroad, an indictment that’s never going to see the light of day in short of trial because they’re never going to come here. It’s never going to be tried. We’re never going to find out whether anything in the indictment’s true. And what would they rather be talking about? This indictment where they found, despite all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, not one American colluded with the Russians.

Why isn’t this Justice Department looking into the abuse of the FISA process? Look the Russians were trying to make it clear to the Clinton Camp that they had dirt on Trump and they were going to use it against him. And all of that was false. And Trump was victimized and the FBI, rather than trying to protect him, used it as a pretext working with the Clinton campaign to target him under the corrupt Obama administration. Look this indictment shows the Russian scandal is over as far as Trump is concerned.

 

Obama is center of anti-@RealDonaldTrump effort -- when will he be questioned on the Clinton-DNC dossier? And, do what do we have the FBI for -- the shooter screw-up? New Lawsuits on Unmasking, the DNC Hack and Comey DOC. My @JudicialWatch update. https://youtu.be/h0WB08SHmuQ
