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.
