scales-of-justiceAt the end of February I told you about Army officer, First Lt. Michael Behenna facing a murder charge and being prosecuted by the very country he has offered himself to protect and uphold. Behanna was found guilty and sentenced to 25 years.

Now it turns out that it’s highly likely that the prosecution withheld key evidence that could have exonerated Behenna and to make matters worse they are denying him a retrial that very likely could prove him not guilty of murder. Behenna claimed self-defense from the start and a prosecutor’s witness, a world renowned forensic specialist, was prepared to offer proof of Behenna’s story but was not allowed to because that wasn’t what the prosecution wanted anyone to hear. They wanted him found guilty.

Yes, the government asks our soldiers to serve and protect and even give their lives and what does our government do in return? Prosecute, persecute and lie when they do their jobs!

A military judge Friday refused to throw out Army Lt. Michael C. Behenna’s murder conviction despite an 11th-hour claim by the prosecution’s own forensic expert that the infantry officer is likely innocent.

On Feb. 27, a military court found Behenna guilty of murdering al-Qaida operative Ali Mansur Mohammed in Iraq on May 16, 2008 during a field interrogation. Behenna, 25, an infantry platoon leader in the 101st Airborne Division, maintains the shooting was in self-defense.

The seven-member panel that convicted the young officer rejected that claim, but new information indicates the court may not have heard the whole story. On the day the verdict came down, the government’s own forensics expert, Dr. Herbert L. MacDonell, told Army prosecutor Capt. Meghan M. Poirier that he had changed his mind and now believes Behenna killed Ali Mansur in self-defense.

Hey Soldier, Pay Your Own Medical Bills!

Our government will bail you out with taxpayer money if you brought more house than you could afford and are now facing foreclosure. Our government will bail out your business that is failing due to poor management, excessive bonuses and a poor business model. Our government is even trying to ensure that illegal immigrants and their children have health insurance benefits.

Now, this same government that his handing out taxpayer money hand over fist, taxpayer money that has not actually yet been collected but rather will be collected from future generations, is now contemplating having military personnel injured while on duty pay their own medical bills. Eric Shinseki,Veterans Affairs Secretary confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a controversial plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance. Lawmakers told the administration that it would be “dead on arrival” if sent to Congress.

First Lt. Michael BehennaArmy officer, First Lt. Michael Behenna facing a murder charge testified Thursday that he shot and killed an Iraqi after the detainee reached for his gun during an interrogation.

First Lt. Michael Behenna said he was trying to defend himself and hadn’t planned to shoot the detainee when he took him aside for questioning in the Iraqi desert. Behenna of Edmond, Okla. is charged with premeditated murder, assault and making a false statement. The premeditated murder charge carries a mandatory life sentence without parole. Forgive me but wouldn’t all killing at a time of war be considered premeditated?? Surely people didn’t think our troops were sent there to play tiddlywinks.

Prosecutors argue that Behenna intended to kill Ali Mansour Mohammed in May 2008 during an interrogation near a secluded railroad culvert near a U.S. military base. They’ve said Behenna had no remorse for the killing and justified it to others by saying Mohammed was a bad man.

Maxine on Minorities

We need to show more sympathy for these people.

-They travel miles in the heat.
-They risk their lives crossing a border.
-They don’t get paid enough wages.
-They do jobs that others won’t do or are afraid to do.
-They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language.
-They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day ~ every day

I’m not talking about illegal Mexicans ~ I’m talking about our troops!

Doesn’t it seem strange that many Democrats and Republicans are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don’t support our troops, and are even threatening to defund them?

If you agree, share this so everyone knows!
