NYT Publishes Propaganda Piece by Taliban

As if this rag didn’t already have zero integrity and credibility, it’s peddling pro-Taliban propaganda.

Via Breitbart

The New York Times on Thursday published an op-ed written by Sirajuddin Haqqani, deputy leader of the Taliban and a globally designated terrorist with a $5 million FBI reward on his head.

Haqqani used the opportunity extended by the Times to recite Taliban propaganda and lay out the terrorist organization’s terms for peace in Afghanistan.

The FBI wants Haqqani for “questioning in connection with the January 2008 attack on a hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan, that killed six people, including an American citizen.” He is also wanted for participating in attacks on U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan and planning the attempted assassination of former Afghan President Hamid Karzai in 2008.

Haqqani is not only deputy commander of the Taliban but also the operational commander of the Haqqani Network, the infamous criminal gang and internationally designated terrorist organization allied with the Taliban that is responsible for numerous terrorist attacks and kidnappings, including U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl. Sirajuddin Haqqani’s father Jalaluddin, founder of the network, died after a long illness several years ago.

The New York Times did not see fit to provide any of this background information to readers, identifying Sirajuddin Haqqani as merely “deputy leader of the Taliban.”

In his op-ed, Haqqani portrayed the Taliban as reasonable negotiators appalled by the loss of life in Afghanistan, excusing his group’s atrocities and remorseless attacks on civilians as justified acts of self-defense. He blamed the United States for undermining previous efforts at working out a peace deal.

“We did not choose our war with the foreign coalition led by the United States. We were forced to defend ourselves. The withdrawal of foreign forces has been our first and foremost demand. That we today stand at the threshold of a peace agreement with the United States is no small milestone,” Haqqani wrote.

The terrorist leader claimed that his side stuck with the current round of negotiations despite “the intensified bombing campaign against our villages by the United States and the flip-flopping and ever-moving goal posts of the American side.”

Haqqani claimed the Taliban are just looking for a round of free and fair elections, laughably pretending the murderous Islamist extremists would cheerfully accept losing and head back to their caves in peace if the Afghan people reject them….

……This would be the same Taliban that gleefully murders young women for the crime of going to school and regards democracy as a crime against Islam punishable by death.

 

 

 

The Taliban is still spreading their own unique kind of atrocities in Afghanistan, especially the way it treats the female population.  Islam is great for women, if you prefer stonings, beatings, maiming, beheadings“honor killings”rape, attempted murder and genital mutilation, in accordance with a violent theocracy that justifies those atrocities with their koran.

They also strangle children and force them to step on bombs.

When the Taliban filth took over Afghanistan after the Soviets were kicked out, beheadings and floggings became commonplace for minor transgressions against Islam. Music, television, and the Internet were banned. Men were forced to wear beards, women were forced to wear head-to-toe Burkas, and they were beaten if they did not comply. Girls were forbidden to attend school. Women were prohibited from working outside the home or being in public without a male relative.  Those who did were beaten or shot, by officers of the “ministry for the protection of virtue and prevention of vice.”

The Taliban has the blood of US Soldiers on its hands, but the shitbags at the New York Times think they deserve a platform for their opinions.

A side note: When deserter Bowe Bergdahl defected to the Taliban, 6 US Soldiers were killed by Taliban terrorists while looking for the worthless piece of shit.

The New York Times is a sewer of rancid leftist reprobates.

The staff reads like the Who’s Who of the Fifth Column.  One of their reporters was caught organizing for the ‘Occupy’ thugs.  They performed fellatio on Obama for 8 years. 

They declared that any speech you dislike is ‘an act of violence’.

One of their hacks smeared military veterans as “KKK”, another contributor insisted that America should get rid of the Constitution, and at least one of their former editors admitted that their Prog world view ‘bleeds through the paper’s fabric’.

They also published a murder porn story about President Trump and printed some tripe by Vladimir Putin that mocked American exceptionalism.

In a perfect world, Al Qaeda would have brought down the building at 620 8th Ave, New York, NY.

 

 

 

 

Mark Levin Interview With Sen. Tom Cotton on Qassem Soleimani, Iraq, China, and the Sham Impeachment

Via Fox News

Excerpts:

LEVIN: It’s a pleasure. Well, you have an impressive background. You went to Harvard. You went to Harvard Law School. But even more impressive than that, you served in the 101st Airborne in Iraq. And later, you served in Afghanistan with the Provincial Reconstruction Team.

In between tours, you served with the Old Guard at Arlington National Cemetery which we’re going to talk about in a moment. So you go to Harvard Law School, and then you decide to go into the military.

COTTON: Yes, some people might say, Mark that I redeemed myself by joining the Army after going to Harvard. But this — the story is that I started my final year of law school in September of 2001. And probably, in the second week of school, I was in evidence class one morning and I mean, this is back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and we didn’t have smartphones or even WiFi in the classroom.

So it was about an hour later that everyone in that class learn what had happened that morning on September 11, 2001. And we all gather together and watched the rest of the day, we watched as the towers fell down, and as Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, had a prayer vigil that evening.

And from that point forward, really, I knew that I wanted to serve in our country’s military. I thought about rushing out to join right away. Some friends who were in the military discouraged me from doing that. They’re probably right since I was already in for three years of paying for law school, it’s probably best to finish law school and price for a couple of years to pay off my loans.

But when that finished, I joined the Army. I signed up in late 2004 and shipped off to basic training in January of 2005.

LEVIN: You also received the Bronze Star, the Combat Infantry Badge and the Ranger Tab, and I mention all of this because not only is it enormously impressive, but you actually have some knowledge, some experience about what you’re talking about, not just from the Senate floor and not just from a television broadcast studio like this.

You’ve been in Iraq. You’ve been in Afghanistan. You’ve been on the ground. You’ve been a Congressman. You’re a senator. You serve on the Intelligence Committee in the Armed Services Committee. So now you see the broader perspective of things.

You are the Only United States Senator, 98 to one vote, you voted against the Iran Deal, even though it allowed for Congress to review the deal. You said, wait a minute. This is supposed to be a treaty under our Constitution — 98 to one. Where we’re all the constitutionalists?

……By the time I got done with all my training in 2005, I got to Iraq in 2006 with the 101st Airborne. That was right before the surge, which meant it was in the times when things were deteriorating that necessitated the surge the following year.

We saw sectarian warfare almost every single day in Baghdad, fueled in no small part by Iranian meddling, and the most deadly weapon we faced was a particularly sophisticated kind of roadside bomb that was manufactured in Iran by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard, Quds Force led by Qasem Soleimani, who has the blood of hundreds of American soldiers on his hands because of that meddling in the Iraq War.

So my history with Iran goes very far back, farther than that vote you just cited or what’s happened over the last couple of weeks.

LEVIN: Soleimani. I guess I’m an old Reaganite. I’m an old school guy. You take out a genocidal maniac like this, a real monster, and you don’t need a whole lot of explanation. What’s the strategy? What was imminent? What was this? What was that? The guy has been doing this for decades.

He’s got massive amounts of blood on his hands. Muslim blood, American blood Syrian blood, Lebanese blood, Yemeni blood. Israeli blood — you can go on and on and on. Everybody knows who he is. Everybody knows what he is.

The President, who is actually quite careful about using military force takes him out. The Democratic Party, almost all men and women, criticize him. We have this phony non-binding resolution in the House to try and limit his power. We have what I called — you don’t have to, I do — some Code Pink Republicans out there waving the Constitution around bizarrely. What do you make of all this?

COTTON: Well, you’re right that Qasem Soleimani was a sadistic terrorist mastermind, and there is no country in the Middle East whose citizens have not suffered from his depredations.

You mentioned Syria. He is largely responsible for Bashar Al-Assad still being in power and killing hundreds of thousands of Syrians.

Just at the end of last year, more than a thousand Iranians were killed by their own Security Forces that they protested against their government. Qasem Soleimani was responsible for those as well, and there’s no doubt, I’ve seen the Intelligence that he was plotting something large and something very dangerous, whether it happened in a matter of weeks, or a matter of days.

And the question of whether an attack is imminent or not, Mark, I’ve got to say, it looks very different if you’re a soldier sitting in Iraq, than if you’re some comfortable senator sitting behind armed guards in Washington, D.C.

So I very disappointed at all my Democratic colleagues in the Senate, I’ve got to say over the last few weeks, because if you’ve got a chance to take a mastermind like Qasem Soleimani off the battlefield, you take it, and I commend the President for doing so. We should have done it a long time ago.

LEVIN: You’ll hear people say, what are we doing there? What are we doing in the Middle East? It’s a quagmire. Let’s just take everybody and get the hell out of there. How do you answer that?

COTTON: Well, so first, with Iran, they’ve been waging war against us for 40 years, and we cannot allow Iran to wage a proxy war against us without fighting back.

In Iraq, now, we have a small presence there. It might have been smaller if we hadn’t, precipitously withdrawn in 2011. I saw Iraq at some of its worst times in 2006. The surge worked.

President Bush handed over an Iraq that was largely stable in 2008 to President Obama. President Obama unwisely maintained the stance that he had taken during the campaign that he was going to withdraw all of the troops regardless of the conditions on the ground.

We might have many fewer troops on the ground in Iraq right now, if we had just maintained that stable presence in 2011. That’s what I would prefer to see, a smaller presence there, but also a stable country in which you don’t say, a vicious terrorist organization like the Islamic State rise from the ashes and start threatening Americans again, because ultimately, if we withdraw entirely from the Middle East, the Middle East is very likely going to follow us back to the United States as it did on 9/11.

That doesn’t mean that we have to have a hundred thousand troops. That doesn’t mean that we have to try to remake these countries into, you know, Western European democracies. But it does mean that at times, we have to have troop presence in the Middle East, so we can project power and we can ensure that threats don’t gather there and materialize here.

LEVIN: And wars aren’t fought with muskets anymore, are they?

COTTON: No, they’re not.

LEVIN: Intercontinental ballistic missiles. Nuclear warheads. So when people say, well, that’s 7,000 miles, that’s 10,000 miles away. Isn’t that why the enemy builds ICBMs?

COTTON: Well, that’s why Iran is building ICBMs. And you know, you don’t put conventional warheads on ICBMs either. There’s only one reason why you build a missile that can fly from Iran to Europe and ultimately to the United States, and that’s so you can have a nuclear warhead on that.

But at the other end of the scale, we saw 9/11, what someone with just a few hundred thousand dollars and resolve and some committed fanatics could do as well.

That is why it’s so essential that we don’t allow power vacuums to rise in places that have large numbers of highly skilled, highly motivated terrorists fighters, as in Iraq, as in Syria when the Islamic State dominated there, because those people although they may be playing a near game against their sectarian rivals or their own governments, ultimately, they focus on what Iran calls the Great Satan, the United States.

……COTTON: ……You know, when President Trump directed the strike that killed Qasem Soleimani, we also killed a man named Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who was Qasem Soleimani’s main deputy in Iraq.

In fact, it was his militia, Kata’ib Hezbollah that killed the American linguist on December 27th and wounded several other American troopers.

That man has a long and bloody history as well. He was responsible for bombing the United States Embassy in Kuwait in 1983. So this threat is not limited to Iraq or to where we have troops in the Middle East.

……The Obama Doctrine was a bad overcorrection to what had happened in the Bush years. As you say, we badly harmed our military and hollowed it out in many ways and turned the other cheek consistently.

Even when Obama promised a red line, he wouldn’t even enforce it, as happened in Syria after Bashar Al-Assad gassed his own people.

Donald Trump came into office and said we’re not going to try to turn countries that have never had any kind of tradition in constitutional democracy into a Western European parliamentary government, but at the same time, we’re going to enforce red lines.

In fact, he enforced Barack Obama’s own red line twice in Syria and his red line in Iran has been very clear for the last several months, if you harm an American, you’ll suffer severe consequences. And when Qasem Soleimani’s proxies killed an American linguist and harmed several troopers, he did just that.

That’s still our red line going forward in the future. In some ways, it’s kind of like what Reagan did with Iran. You know, you remember in 1988, when a U.S. Navy vessel was struck by an Iranian mine and Ronald Reagan sunk about half of the Iranian Navy in return.

……even if you look at the threats that the Soviet Union posed to the United States during the Cold War, I think China poses a similar threat to the United States going forward in the 21st Century. Donald Trump also appreciates that threat.

……LEVIN: Let’s talk about China. I consider China the greatest threat we face. Iran is a tremendous threat, too, but China is a massive country. And they’ve stolen our technology to the point where they’re probably has or are more sophisticated now than the Russians when it comes to military hardware.

They’re ahead of us in Space Technology, thanks to the Obama administration. Cyberwarfare, they’re on the cutting edge. They are developing an offensive-oriented military, not a regional military, a global military.

Both sides of the Panama Canal, Chinese contractors — Reagan would never allow that. I don’t believe for a minute.

Trump inherits this stuff. He didn’t create this. I mean, the Chinese were building these phony islands in the South China Sea when he became President of the United States. North Korea had nukes when he became President of the United States. The Iran Deal is something he had to fix, he had to address when he became President. He gets almost no credit.

The constant attacks in the media by these former Obama appointees and others going on and on about how he is rash. Where has he been rash, exactly?

I mean, I think he’s been very cogent, very systematic. And I think there’s a real Doctrine behind this. Now, let’s talk about China. What do we do about China?

COTTON: Well, so first off, I think there’s no question that China is the greatest threat we face in the years ahead. Iran and North Korea are threats. They have a tendency because they’re rogue nations to generate these crises, but they do not have the ability to displace the United States as the world’s superpower.

Russia is a declining power. They still have a large nuclear arsenal. They have great Intelligence capabilities. They’re increasing their military capabilities. But Russia is a troubled and declining power.

China is still a rising power. A lot of people in Washington in both parties made a lot of mistakes about China over the last 20 years, thinking that if we just sent more of our jobs there, if we outsource more of our factories there, if we brought more cheap stuff back here, all of a sudden China would become a peaceful, Western-style democracy.

The exact opposite has happened. China has become more repressive over the last 20 years as they’ve moved from the era of Deng Xiaoping to now, to the era of Xi Jinping who is the most powerful Chinese ruler since Mao Zedong.

And as you say, they are acting out in ways that are trying to project that power all around the world through their Belt and Road Initiative, trying to buy off countries around the world, militarizing the South China Sea by building islands out of the sea, by trying to compete with us in space and in cyber technology, trying to displace us as the world’s largest economy.

The President has China a hundred percent right. On every front, we need to draw boundaries on China, and we need to compete with them and ultimately defeat them — economic, diplomatic, political, military, you name it.

……LEVIN: Senator Cotton, impeachment. We have two Articles of Impeachment. I think we do, anyway, obstruction of Congress. Is the Senate part of Congress by the way? I think so. And then we have — what’s the other one? Something about abuse of power.

Now, you went to Harvard Law School. You’re a smart fella. I studied this my entire life, the impeachment clause, treason, bribery, other high crimes and misdemeanors. Obstruction of Congress and abuse of power would fall into the category that was rejected at the Constitutional Convention. Too ambiguous, too nebulous.

You can drive a truck through this stuff. Turning the President into a functionary of the House of Representatives. The way they conducted themselves, no traditional due process. I’m not talking about, you know, the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution: Criminal Issues, and the Fifth Amendment. I’m talking about the rules that have been applied to past Presidents and judges that have been impeached.

She throws them out the window. They conduct a hearing in the Intelligence Committee, which I understand had held a single hearing on Iran, by the way. Now, she holds it up, and she says, I want to see what the Senate is going to do. Who elected Nancy Pelosi, Queen of America? Did you?

COTTON: I did not, Mark. I can assure you that.

LEVIN: She is only a Congresswoman. So now what does the Senate do?

COTTON: So, Mark, you’re right about these two Articles of Impeachment. They’re very similar to what was rejected at the Constitutional Convention. I think the exact term was maladministration that was under debate, and they rejected it, because it was too vague, too generic. It would be used as a political tool, just because someone disliked the President’s policies.

And frankly, that’s a lot of what the Democrats in the House and even some of these witnesses have alleged. They’ve alleged that they wanted to support Ukraine. That we should have sent that money to Ukraine without any delays at all, even though it was sent after just a few weeks, and that this was a bad or unwise decision. That’s fine. They’re entitled to that opinion, but they’re not empowered to make those decisions under our Constitution. Only the President is.

I remember when Nancy Pelosi first took the country down this path back in September, speaking to the President about it. And I said that I know it’s frustrating. I know that you want to do the people’s business, you just have to remember though that they started impeaching you, the day you got elected. They filed the first Articles just a few weeks after you were sworn in.

And this is depending on how you count things, the third or the fourth effort to impeach the President. At root, no matter the allegations, it goes back to one single sin, defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016.

And as Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff have said, if the Senate doesn’t convict Donald Trump on this impeachment round, they’re apt to try to impeach him again in the future because they simply refuse to accept the fact that he won in 2016, even though we’ve got an election in barely nine months.

So what will the Senate do? That’s up in part to what the President’s lawyers want to do. So for instance, how they want to present their case if they want to call witnesses and so forth.

I can tell you what the Senate is not going to do. We’re not going to let Nancy Pelosi dictate to us. I suspect in the coming days, when she sends the Articles and the House Managers to the Senate that will pass the resolution that is similar, if not identical to the resolution that passed a hundred to nothing in the Bill Clinton impeachment trial.

Setting up a timeline for opening arguments and briefs, setting a time for senators to ask questions and then have debates and then the Senate can decide what to do at that point in the Senate trial.

 

When Obama was installed, he flushed everything we accomplished in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Under Obama’s watch, weapons that were meant for the Iraqi army fell into the hands of Shiite militias. In 2008, Iranian Hezbollah brigades were captured in Iraq and the regime in Tehran has been paying insurgents to kill Americans and Brits.

Barky also tipped off the Iranians when Israel planned on taking out Soleimani in 2015.

Obama’s other foreign policy disasters:

Benghazi.

Syria.

North Korea.

Iraq implodes, Obama goes golfing.

He dismissed Al Qaeda in Iraq as “JV”, they went Varsity, thanks to him.

He gave Iran the green light to make nukes.

Obama’s asinine foreign policy involved aid to Hamas, the PLO, and the Muslim Brotherhood thugs in Egypt.

He forced a dicked-up ROE on the troops in Afghanistan, where “victory wasn’t necessarily the goal“.

 

The Chinese have engaged in cyber attacks, spying, economic espionage, and actual threatening of U.S. Naval vessels. Yet former officials , the Feds, politicians, and American corporations think giving them money, technology, and contributing to the Chinese threat are good ideas.

China builds artificial islands and militarizes them.

ChiCom Air Show Exhibition Depicts Their Forces Attacking a U.S. Navy Vessel

China announces that its nuclear submarines can hit the U.S. with missiles.

China’s Military Buildup

American companies who do business with China  help fund the military buildup.  In turn, China arms North Korea and Iran.

A senior Chinese officer declared that China should ‘topple U.S. dominance’. Whether China can actually pull this off is a matter of great debate, but the fact that they have their claws sunk so deeply into us economically, should be a wake up call.

 

Sen. Cotton is 100% correct. President Trump is cleaning up the mess left behind by Obama’s regime and he’s good at it. 

President Trump is reversing the damage Barky Obama did to this country and has accomplished more positive improvements to the economy, foreign policy, and national security in his first term in office than all the previous White House occupants since Ronald Reagan.

And the Dems hate him for it.

The impeachment shitshow is gearing up to be another epic fail in the Dems’ loss column.

 

 

President Trump Pardons Two Service Members Convicted on Bogus Charges of ‘War Crimes’

Via The Washington Times

 

President Trump granted clemency ‪Friday night‬ for three military service members accused of war crimes.

Mr. Trump granted full pardons for Army First Lt. Clint Lorance and Army Maj. Mathew Golsteyn, and ordered the promotion of Navy SEAL Edward R. Gallagher to the rank he held before he was tried and found not guilty of most of the charges against him.

“The president, as commander in chief, is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the law is enforced and when appropriate, that mercy is granted,” the White House said. “For more than two hundred years, presidents have used their authority to offer second chances to deserving individuals, including those in uniform who have served our country.  These actions are in keeping with this long history.  As the president has stated, ‘when our soldiers have to fight for our country, I want to give them the confidence to fight.’”

Lt. Lorance has served more than six years of a 19-year sentence for his conviction involving the killings of two Afghan men on a motorcycle in July 2012 in a battle zone in Afghanistan.

“Many Americans have sought executive clemency for Lorance, including 124,000 people who have signed a petition to the White House, as well as several members of Congress,” said White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.

The White House said Lt. Lorance, “Under difficult circumstances and prioritizing the lives of American troops, ordered his men to engage, and two of the three men were killed.”

Maj. Golsteyn has been facing trial for an allegedly unlawful killing of a suspected Taliban bombmaker in connection with one of the largest battles of the Afghanistan war, the White House said.

“As our forces cleared the Taliban from the city of Marjah, an improvised explosive device detonated, killing two Marines,” the statement said. “The terrorist bombmaker, as identified by an Afghan informant, who had killed our troops, was detained and questioned.”

The White House said Maj. Golsteyn “was compelled to release him, however, due in part to deficiencies within the fledgling Afghan detention system. Golsteyn has said he later shot the terrorist because he was certain that the terrorist’s bombmaking activities would continue to threaten American troops and their Afghan partners, including Afghan civilians who had helped identify him.”

“After nearly a decadelong inquiry and multiple investigations, a swift resolution to the case of Major Golsteyn is in the interests of justice,” Ms. Grisham said. “Clemency for Major Golsteyn has broad support.”

Maj. Golsteyn said he was “profoundly grateful” to the president for granting clemency to the highly decorated former Green Beret.

“We have lived in constant fear of this runaway prosecution. Thanks to President Trump, we now have a chance to rebuild our family and lives,” he said in a statement released through his lawyer, Fayetteville, N.C.-based Phillip Stackhouse. “With time, I hope to regain my immense pride in having served in our military. In the meantime, we are so thankful for the support of family members, friends and supporters from around the nation, and our legal team.”

Maj. Golsteyn had been cleared in the 2010 incident by an Army Board of Inquiry. He was discharged in 2015 but later was returned to active duty to face trial at Fort Bragg. His family remained at their home in Virginia.

His lawyer said they were confident he would have prevailed in the trial but said the pardon by Mr. Trump “expedited justice” in the case.

“Maj. Golsteyn should have been medically retired years ago because of service-related injuries and allowed to move on with his life and family,” Mr. Stackhouse said. “Instead, the Army secretly pursued him for seven years.

“The origination and true motivation of this prosecution remains a mystery,” he said. “We urge the Army to learn from this flawed, compromised prosecution and prevent similar abuses in the future.”

Special Warfare Operator First Class Gallagher had been selected for promotion to Senior Chief, awarded a Bronze Star with a “V” for valor, and assigned to an important position in the Navy as an instructor, the White House said. He was convicted of posing for a photo with a dead Islamic State fighter.

“Though ultimately acquitted on all of the most serious charges, he was stripped of these honors as he awaited his trial and its outcome. Given his service to our nation, a promotion back to the rank and pay grade of Chief Petty Officer is justified,” the statement said.

Ms. Grisham said the U.S. military justice system “helps ensure good order and discipline for our millions of uniformed military members and holds to account those who violate the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Due in part to this system, we have the most disciplined, most effective, most respected, and most feared fighting force in the world.”

 

The corrupt Navy prosecutors who charged Eddie Gallagher were stripped of the Navy Achievement Medals they received for their prosecutorial misconduct.

Major Matt Golsteyn, was awarded the Silver Star for bravery in action during the 2010 Battle of Marjah in Afghanistan. In 2011, shortly after a book by author and Marine Bing West came out that detailed Golsteyn’s heroism and quoted him making critical remarks about the American strategy in Afghanistan, the Army launched a criminal investigation into his actions during the battle.  In other words, Major Golsteyn was persecuted for telling the truth about Obama’s fucked up war strategy.

More background on Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance :

Ordered his platoon to fire on three Afghan men on a motorcycle who sped toward the front of Lorance’s platoon, down a road controlled by the Taliban, ignoring signs to keep off the road. The Taliban had ambushed Lorance’s patrol by sniper fire from the same road the day before, so there was considerable reason to believe that it was another attack.  Afghan locals rushed out and grabbed the motorcycle. The Army never recovered it nor examined it for explosives. With no weapons found on the bodies of the two Afghan riders, the Army – seeking to prop up Obama’s rules of engagement – prosecuted Lorance on a charge of murder.  The prosecution hid evidence that the motorcyclists were Taliban bomb makers, then ordered Lorance’s men to testify against him or face murder charges themselves. When the Army charged Lorance with murder, the message rang out loud and clear……Defend yourselves in battle and you may be prosecuted for murder.

 

President Trump also pardoned U.S. Army 1st Lt. Michael Behenna who was convicted for killing an Al Qaeda terrorist. He should have never been tried in the first fucking place. The slug he shot, Ali Mansur, was a known Al-Qaeda operative. Lt. Behenna was betrayed by the Army and the country he faithfully served.

More travesties:

Army 1SG John Hatley and two other Soldiers  were convicted for killing the muslim terrorist cocksuckers who fired at them in an attempted ambush. The 1SG and his Soldiers chased them down and found their weapons cache, but that wasn’t sufficient evidence. They were told to let them go. They didn’t. Instead, they took out the trash.

The Army tried unsuccessfully to courts-martial Lieutenant Colonel and former Congressman Allen West (R-FL), whose unwavering courage  saved the lives of his Soldiers.

In another example of the military screwing its own, a SEAL team member was charged with assaulting Ahmed Hashim Abed, one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq, the mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004.  Evidently, the muzzie thug got a little boo boo during transport to captivity. He told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it. Who the hell cares if the little hadji got a bloody lip. I’d have probably made him eat the butt of my weapon until he crapped pieces of it.

Decorated Army Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland, was almost discharged from the Army for shoving an Afghan police commander who raped a boy and beat up the mother when she reported the incident. That goat fucker is lucky all SFC Martland did was shove him.

Former Army Captain Will Swenson’s Medal of Honor package was “lost” after he sharply criticized his chain of command over the Obama’s ROE.  Army Captain Jim Gant, one of the most successful, unorthodox special operators of the last decade, was drummed out of the Army after running afoul of his superiors.

If there’s been a pattern of attacks in a combat zone involving the same modus operandi, you bet your ass it’s justifiable to shoot when an oncoming vehicle ignores warnings and refuses to stop. The enemy was EVERYWHERE. Obama’s ROE was abject stupidity. It left troops dangerously preoccupied with worrying about enemy fighters’ rights. Hand wringers need to divest themselves from the fantasy that we are fighting an enemy that plays by the Marquis of Queensbury Rules. Anyone who thinks we shouldn’t decimate as many as possible, has a crap factory for a brain. We should be using every method, weapon, strategy, and tactic at our disposal to do so.

While honorable service members got shafted for acts of courage, former White House occupant B. Hussein Obama rewarded deserters and traitors for their despicable actions.  He traded Bowe Bergdahl, a craven shitbag who walked away from his post in Afghanistan and into the arms of the Taliban, for five of the worst muzzie terrorist cutthroats at GITMO.  Bergdahl got the royal treatment before public outrage finally forced a courts martial.  Obama also commuted the sentence of traitor Bradley Manning, whose actions endangered the lives of the Soldiers in his unit.

This whole idea of prosecuting American troops for killing the enemy is just plain batshit crazy. What kind of war are we supposed to fight when our own troops are restricted by ROE that benefits the enemy and gets us killed?

Killing the enemy and standing up to child rapists should not be Courts Martial offenses.

US Army Master Sergeant Dies 10 Years After Being Shot While Looking for Deserter Bergdahl

Via Fox News

Retired Army Master Sgt. Mark Allen died on Saturday, 10 years after he was shot while looking for a missing soldier in Afghanistan back in 2009. He was 46.

Allen was unable to walk or speak since being shot in the head by a sniper in July 2009 during his attempted search for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked off his base in Afghanistan and was imprisoned by the Taliban for five years.

Bergdahl later pled guilty and was dishonorably discharged, reduced in rank from sergeant to private and fined $1,000 per month over a 10-month period for deserting his post and endangering the lives of fellow soldiers, including Allen.

When Bergdahl was traded for five Taliban prisoners and brought home, Shannon Allen, Mark’s wife didn’t hold back her feelings for how he changed their family forever.

“Meet my husband,” she wrote on Facebook, “injuries directly brought to you by the actions of this traitor.”

Donald Trump also expressed his disdain toward the prisoner transfer of Bergdahl, calling the decision “a complete” and “total disgrace to our country and our Military.”

During the trial of Bergdahl, Shannon testified that it took 90 minutes to get her husband out of bed, showered and dressed each morning. She had to use a pulley system, which was attached to the ceiling to move him, according to Task & Purpose.

Mark’s young daughter also enjoyed climbing into his wheelchair and sitting on his lap, Shannon told the outlet.

……His service will be held in Loganville, Georgia on Oct. 17 from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

When Bowe Bergdhal walked away from his post, he deliberately sought out the Taliban so he could join them.

He left his gear in a nice neat little pile along with a note that explained he was running away.  He willfully collaborated  with the enemy and declared himself ‘mujahid’ and allegiance to Islamic jihad.  The attacks his unit endured got more methodical and precise after his desertion.

Bergdahl and Taliban pal

During his stay with the Taliban, he converted to Islam.

It took some time before charges were even brought against the little shitbag, since Obama treated him like a pet to advance his political agenda.

Six Soldiers were killed looking for his worthless ass.  Barky traded five of the worst muzzie cutthroats at GITMO   for this piece of shit.

They should have left him with the Taliban. They should have considered him an enemy combatant and killed him on the battlefield.

Barring that, he should be taken out and shot. And take Obama with him.

Bin Laden’s Spawn Killed in U.S. Counterterrorism Operation

According to the White House Saturday Hamza bin Ladin, was killed in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, during a counterterrorism operation in late July.

In a statement, the president said “the loss of Hamza bin Ladin not only deprives Al-Qaida of important leadership skills, but also undermines important operational activities of the group.”

The death of Hamza comes just days after the 18th anniversary of 9/11, which the insurgent group carried out back in 2001.

 

Well, at least the shitbag didn’t get a ‘respectful’ muzzie funeral like Obama gave his old man Osama.
