Obama Halts Prosecution of Planner of USS Cole Bombing

You can’t make this stuff up….

The Washington Post, no less, is reporting this.

I guess Obama gets to do this if he wants to… but the DoD and ALL SERVING MILITARY PERSONNEL ought to take a new look at their CINC and his halting the judicial prosecution of a man who planned the attack that killed 17 and wounded 39 serving US Navy personnel.

Now if you recall, the Left insists that we treat terrorism as a criminal, rather than a military, issue…. and now we refuse to prosecute those the Left insists are criminals?

Am I on Candid Camera?

The military inculcates a no-man-left-behind mentality at the very core of our fighting men and women. Refusing to prosecute the man who killed 17 serving personnel is not very far from leaving those men and women behind.

I’ve noted before and I’m noting again – any ANY serving officer who sends his/her soldiers/sailors/airmen/Marines into harm’s way for a CINC who doesn’t want to win and who requires ROE that put our soldiers at-risk while putting enemy civilians above the lives of our fighting men and women.. is a COWARD unfit for the uniform of the United States of America.

I’ll add this: ANY serving officer who sends his/her men and women into battle under the orders of a CINC who refuses to prosecute the enemy (after insisting that we treat terrorism as a judicial rather than a military issue), is a COWARD, as well. These soldiers/sailors/airman/Marines put their LIVES in the hands of their commanders.. and the CINC won’t PROSECUTE the murderer of 17 of their brethren?!?!?

The military has become a Palace Guard. It needs to return to being a professional fighting organization instead.

More to the point, it needs to begin doing its job as the protector of the Constitution from the DOMESTIC ENEMY in the Oval Office.

About Alex Scipio

About Alex Scipio: Alex moved out of the People's Republic of California to the Free State of Arizona, finally tiring of the lack of the Bill of Rights, the overgrown idiocracy, and the catering to non-Americans & welfare recipients. He still wonders how America got from Truman, Eisenhower, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan to the Liberal and Conservative extremes so badly managing America today. And, yes, islam DOES need to be annihilated. And doing what he can to get folks away from the extremes of political life.

    Mr. Luthy:

    On investigation of your point I discovered that, yes, I did somehow add seemingly all of the post following the paragraph to which you refer. I am not sure how that happened other than I must have quoted a commenter in the Telegraph which seems to be identical text.

    I have edited my post to remove the entirety following Mr Singleton’s single paragraph.

    Thank you for pointing-out my error and for reading my blog. It always is useful to have errors fixed, and I think you for the opportunity to do so.

    Is IN THIS DIMENSION responsible for the “add on” to Alex Singleton’s paragraph blog which he writes he will boycott America?
    If you are, are you going to set the record straight on this issue?

    Please respond.

    Thank you,

    Fred Luthy
