He disappeared from his post in Iraq in 2004, went to his home country of Lebanon and finally turned himself in after 10 years. He’s a muslim and he received “spiritual counseling” from Navy Lt. Cmdr. Abuhena Saifulislam, a muslim military chaplain who has ties to an extremist Wahhabist outfit under federal investigation. What could go wrong?
From Fox News.
A U.S. marine who vanished a decade ago in Iraq has been sentenced to two years in prison for leaving his post and then fleeing to Lebanon after a brief return to the U.S.
As part of the sentence handed down Monday, Cpl. Wassef Hassoun will have a reduction in rank, loss of pay and a dishonorable discharge.
He was given two years and five days’ confinement.
Earlier in the day, the judge at Camp Lejeune, marine Maj. Nicholas Martz, had found Hassoun guilty of desertion for his disappearances in 2004 and 2005. He was also convicted of losing his service pistol.
Prosecutors argued that Hassoun made preparations to flee his base in Fallujah in 2004 and told others that he planned to leave.
The defense, meanwhile, maintained he was kidnapped by insurgents and said the prosecution’s case was circumstantial.
After he got back into Lebanon, gawd only knows who he hooked up with.
Bowe Bergdahl took a page right out of Hassoun’s strategy book, claiming that he was “taken prisoner” after he deserted and defected to the Taliban. But since Bergdahl is a poster boy for Obama’s sympathy for muzzies, the Army brass are dragging their feet over a courts martial.
Muslims should be barred from serving in the United States armed forces, regardless if they attempt to enlist or whether they convert afterwards. They’re a liability and a security risk.
Islam is a violent theocracy which advocates the overthrow of the West for a new Caliphate. The Koran teaches that Christians, Jews, ‘infidels’, and ‘unbelievers’ should be killed in the name of allah.
Pandering to Islamic extremists has been part of SOP since 9/11. Muslim terrorist operative Anwar al Awlaki was recruited by the Army to train muslim chaplains. An Ohio Army Reserve public affairs unit paid a friendly visit to a mosque that is a known terrorist sponsor. The DOD classifies muslim acts of terrorism against the military as “workplace violence”. The Pentagon leadership, Obama, and military commanders have all shamefully embarrassed the United States by kowtowing to the enemies’ feelings.
Here’s some sound advice for military recruiters: If someone walks into your office with a name like Nidal Hasan, Mohammad Abdullah Hassan, or Asan Akbar, don’t sign him up, show him the goddamned door.
