SFC Soldier Kelly Stewart was sentenced to 8 years in prison based on allegations from a woman with a history of mental health issues. The German court would not allow that evidence to be introduced and so it wasn't . A two Star General was able to get Kelly out of Leavenworth but he still sits with a "violent sex offender" on his record and he currently awaits an appeals court decision. Contrast his case of trumped up charges by an accuser who had "lifelong benefits" to achieve with Kelly's conviction, against the facts of the charges against this Army Colonel of the stellar 173rd Airborne Brigade. As Bob reports this colonel engaged in "a pattern of fraudulent activities that could have cost the U.S. government more than $580,000. And, oh yeah, he committed adultery, wrongful cohabitation and bigamy with an Iraqi woman who was not his wife (duh!).
Obama's administration is "failed" what ever you want to call it, - but, it is not leadership.
Pull out of that hell hole and let them a$$holes do their own fighting. Then see where they stand. If you ask your friend to come over to help work on your car or truck and he breaks somethings do you make him pay? Why HELL NO. Look at all the civilians who was killed in WWI, WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, etc. Was anyone ever put on trial for any of them????? HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!! War is not fair to everyone in or around it. What about the men and women who come back all screwed up with PTSD and missing parts. Not counting those who came back in a casket. I say if a country calls on our men and women to fight for them to stop crying if someone is killed and to shut the hell up.
There is a lot wrong with the leadership in the military . The worst in my opinion is the "rules" of engagement . We were not allowed to shoot unless fired upon and many soldiers were killed because of it . We did have free fire zones but for me and my men we had to wait . Absolutely absurd and I changed that a few months after I deployed . Had a good C.O. , he said just be careful and we were .
United States Flag Officers, in general, do not have the backs of our warriors. It is unconscionable that military and civilian leadership will slink into the shadows when they are really needed to stand guard of our warriors. I'm ashamed and saddened.
HAD ENOUGH YET PEOPLE.
