While GITMO enemy combatants are freed only to go back to the killing fields of jihad, our boys rot in prison for fighting these savages.

On March 20th, 2009, Army Ranger 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing Ali Mansur, a known Al Qaeda operative while serving in Iraq. Mansur was known to be a member of an Al Qaeda cell operating in the lieutenant’s area of operation and Army intelligence believed he organized an attack on Lt. Behenna’s platoon in April 2008 which killed two U.S. soldiers and injured two more. Army intelligence ordered the release of Mansur and Lt. Behenna was ordered to return the terrorist to his home.

During the return of Mansur, Lt. Behenna again questioned the Al Qaeda member for information about other members of the terrorist cell, and financial supporters. During this interrogation, Mansur attacked Lt. Behenna, who killed the terrorist in self-defense. The government subsequently prosecuted Lt. Behenna for premeditated murder.

Not only is this a miscarriage of justice on the behalf of Lt. Behenna, who was acting to prevent further loss of life in his platoon, it is demoralizing to the U.S. troops who continue to fight on behalf of the freedom and security of our nation. Whether it is U.S. border patrol agents, members of the armed forces, or FBI agents, no individual who is serving on the frontlines in the War on Terror should be so blatantly mistreated.

ANY ONE FEEL LIKE HELPING HIM GET OUT OF PRISSON ??

THIS CRAP HAS TO STOP .

ANY LEGAL EAGLES OUT THERE WILLING TO HELP THIS GUY ?

OR IS IT A GOOD OLD FASHION BRAKE OUT ?

That is exactly what needs to be done.

I'm in.  This is absolute bullshit.  He's not even the only one.

I will help. We can hook a chain up to the wall and yank it down like in the classic movies. 

Really, I will help and this is utter bullshit from the typical POS's of Washington. 

Don't you mean the Community Organizer of the United States? This a--h--e and his Cartel want to control everything in our life. They want to transfer THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA into The United Socialist States of Amerika and destroy the Constitution, for which I and others like me dedicated and some died defending.

US COMBAT VETERAN: Vietnam, '68-'69: 228th Avn. Bn. (ASH), 1st Cav. Div. (AM) and former Armored Cavalry Scout (19D30).

May the Great Spirit watch over all of us and guide our steps through out eternity.

I WAS THINKING MORE ALONG THE LINES
OF A MILLION MAN MARCH , OF COURSE
EVERY ONE WOULD BE ARMED !!

HAS TO BE A FEW THAT CAN FLY SOME CHOPPERS
FOR AIR SUPPORT !!

I'm in. I can probably recruit about 5 more at least. I know a few minors that can whip some serious ass, that would gladly sign up and lie about their age like WW2. That is in addition to the 5 mentioned above.

Before that cockroach in the white house ' CAME OUT'   I would have had a hard time believing this could happen to one of OUR guys.  wHAT THE hell IS HAPPENING HERE? why IS THAT thing THAT IS TRYING TO BE A DICTATOR, STILL walking free? He has committed so many acts of TREASON, blatantly, openly, with NO concern of ANY consequesce that there is absolutely NO WAY that anyone in this country does NOT  K N O  W   it as God's truth. I know God has a plan for each of us. But I cannot believe HE will lrt this scum live much longer. He should have alsready been charged, arrested, and trial date set. THERE, with ANY AMERICAN  JURY, That is not prevalently  far left liberal,  will have to convict him of TREASONous ACTS against Humanity  and the USA.  THE ONLT sentence for this is eiother to be publicly hanged until dead, or face a firing squad and , frankly, THAT would be too easy for him. Come ON.... WAKE UP AMERICA !!!!!!!!!

This is absolutely disgusting. Of course Obummer and his crowd support terrorists and not our military. Why can't we get rid of these bums?

I think if all of us on this site were in a coffee shop discussing this, we would rise up and put a stop to this. We are too distanced from each other. 

No, each of us has lots of work to do with the people right around us.

You should relocate to Afghanistan.

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
