Michael Behenna

By Tami Jackson

Progressive non-sense has infiltrated the DOD at the highest levels, dumbing down military requirements and stifling Chaplains’ and Christians’ expression of faith.

The ROE imposed upon America’s warriors are not just complicated, they are dangerous. The consequences of the mucked-up Rules of Engagement can be seen in Army 1LT Michael Behenna’s case.

But every once in a while, the good guys win a victory over those politically correct elitists.

Allen West writes of one such victory:

In what has to be a true miracle, Army 1LT Michael Behenna has won parole. Apparently he was notified that his clemency request was denied but the parole request was granted.

Michael was serving a 15-year sentence for unpremeditated murder of a known terrorist in Iraq.

His trial and sentencing had created a firestorm and grassroots movement. I went to Ft. Leavenworth to speak at a rally on his behalf and have met his mother and father on several occasions.

Congratulations to the Behenna family; Michael is coming home. Michael, God has rewarded you for your faith as he heard yours and many others’ prayers. Next we have to get justice for 1LT Clint Lorance.

Army 1LT Michael Behenna was doing his job. The fact that he was even charged for killing a known terrorist in Iraq is ludicrous.

But, as Allen West stated, God has rewarded Michael’s faith and faithfulness.

And perhaps the story of 1Lt. Behenna brings to mind the words of Joseph:

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

  • Cherilynn Shunk Miles

    Oh yes I would. He was a terrorist for Gods sake. Obama sends drones to kill people and takes out collateral damage.

    https://www.facebook.com/justiceformarineA?fref=ts we have the same here. Royal Marine of 15 years jailed. 6 Tours of Iraq and Afghanistan. Shot a terrorist who had been shot down by an apache helicopter.

  • bleufishcat

    I don’t yet see Joseph’s word coming true, unless this leads to changed ROEs.

    • tamij

      I am hopeful. And I will keep high-lighting stories such as this, hoping to wake up patriots everywhere. I love my dad’s favorite verse: James 5:16b

  • John

    Lots of cool aid drinking elitists out there telling us how to engage terrorists. They are totally free to bomb us but god forbid if we shoot one.

  • Colin Rafferty

    His trial is a perfect example of the Bush presidency at its worst. It starts a war with no clear goal and no clear rules of engagement and then prosecutes people who are stuck doing their dirty work.

    • Tradecraft46

      Place the blame with the generals: they could have said know and made it stick.

      • Colin Rafferty

        George W. Bush was the Commander-in-Chief. The generals report to him, not the other way around. The heads of state of our closest allies were telling him not to do it. Tens of millions of his own citizens were telling him not to do it. It was his fault.

        And guess what, the cheese-eating surrender-monkeys and the dirty hippies were right.

        • Tradecraft46

          Did you ever serve? Do you know how stuff gets done in the service?

          If not, keep you silliness to yourself.

          • Colin Rafferty

            Please enlighten me on how a general can disobey his superior officer. Or how invading Iraq and Afghanistan was not Bush’s fault. I’m honestly interested to hear this.

          • Tradecraft46

            You want to blame someone. You are obviously ignorant of how things work in this world, however.

            Had the Generals presented a united front or just retired, they could have gotten the policy changed.

            I was close to the debate at one point, and things really got bad under Obama, and not under Bush.

            You obvious are Roman Church with a love of hierarchy.

          • Colin Rafferty

            You are he one who wanted to lay blame. I’m just correcting you. Had Bush had a brain to work with, he would have realized it would be the disaster it became. He was the president. The buck stops with him.

            Obama inherited a misguided and disastrous foreign policy. I think he could have done things better. But it was Bush who invaded. People tried to stop him. But he was the decider.

          • raffaelecafagna

            You never answered the Famous Question : did you serve ??
            Obama had all the time available to stop all wars ( he promised
            to do so like always ,Lies ) Correct all bad Decisions and bring the Troops home ; did he?? . You Live in the Past , your present is a Deception .

          • Colin Rafferty

            I didn’t serve, so what? That has nothing to do with Bush’s decision. You were the one who said “Place the blame with the generals”, so you started the blame game.

            I agree that Obama should have gotten us out earlier. How does that relive Bush of his responsibility for getting us into the mess in the first place?

            You believe I am ignorant, so please enlighten me rather than insulting me. You blame the generals rather and imply they have more power than the president. I’d really like to understand why.

          • raffaelecafagna

            Not so : Obama said and promised he would Stop all wars and bring the Soldiers home, that was in 2008 , campaign for president ; again he made public statements saying he would reduce the military personnel in Afghanistan and bring them home ; do you see any of that ?? It seems we have more wars and more soldiers fighting wars in foreign countries that does not concern us . He wanted to start a conflict with Syria , Congress said no ; Putin said ,you mess with Syria , I will mess with you ; Remember ?? Now : you are not ignorant , I never said that and never insulted you ; Bush made a lot of mistakes , Bush is gone , forget him ( you live in the past ) ; the present administration , if he really intended to do some good , he could have made * Magic * ; If Obama was a Real Leader with good intentions , he would have done just a Few Things : Stop all wars , Bring home all Soldiers and put them on Border Patrol ; Stop Immigration Completely , Legal and Illegal ; send Illegals home and stop Immigration Corruption ; put Americans back to work, not Bailouts , Solyndra and many other wasteful projects .
            When Bush left the Deficit was 10 Trillion , gas was $1.89.
            I believe you know the rest . Your present is a Deception = Obama is making a fool out of you , Obama is here to Destroy America , he heights Americans with so much passion to put 4th o July to shame . God Bless America , God Bless you and your Family . There is no hard feelings here .

          • Colin Rafferty

            Dude, we agree about Obama and the wars; please read what I wrote. But we’re talking about Behenna, the guy who was convicted of doing his duty by the Bush administration in Bush’s war. It wasn’t liberals that sent him out with no clear plan, and then imprisoned him for doing his job. It was Bush. It was the Obama administration who freed him.

          • raffaelecafagna

            Dude yourself , Read and be Informed :

            WASHINGTON – The extraordinarily large number of senior military officials being relieved of duty under the Obama administration – nine generals and flag officers this year alone and close to 200 senior officers over the last five years – is part of the creation of a “compliant officer class,” according to a U.S. Army intelligence official.

            In WND’s ongoing coverage of what some top generals are openly calling a “purge” of senior military officers who run afoul of Obama or his agenda, some military personnel have been speaking out.

            According to a veteran Army intelligence official who spoke to WND on condition of anonymity, there is within the armed forces a major concern that a “compliant officer class” is being created by the Obama administration. So much so, he said, that it’s becoming harder to find “senior officers with a pair of balls in there [the military] now that would say no to anything.”

            “Maybe at the rank of major or below, and possibly there are some in SOF (Special Operations Forces), but to make colonel and higher is all politics,” he said.

            Please : End of Conversation ; you are a Waste of Time ..

          • Colin Rafferty

            I think you meant this for a different discussion thread. We were talking about Behenna and who got him into his mess. You keep talking about things that happened long after he was jailed. I’m not sure why.

          • Tradecraft46

            What an ignoramus. You actually believe your junk. Why not have the buck stop with Obama?

            Answer: you have your own hate objects.

          • Colin Rafferty

            Tradecraft46, you’re doing a great job dancing around the issue that you brought up: “Place the blame with the generals”

            I didn’t serve. Obama should have gotten us out sooner. The generals should have spoken up. So what?

            Bush made a disastrous decision, and you are looking to pin it on anyone but him. It’s because of him that Behenna was in jail in the first place, and it’s under the Obama presidency that he’s been released.

          • Don Merriam

            Well, thank God Putin thwarted Obama’s plans for Syria. Funny how we don’t hear any more rhetoric about Syria being vital to our national interests or standing as a world leader.

          • raffaelecafagna

            I think he`s a Muslim

          • Tradecraft46

            Nah just a man of the Book, which ever one.

          • raffaelecafagna

            Just answer the Question ; Did you Serve ???????
            Bush left at the End of 08 ; today the war is alive and going on , can you EXPLAIN ?????

          • Colin Rafferty

            I didn’t serve, so what? Obama screwed up, that’s why we’re still at war. Does that retroactively make Bush a military genius? No, he’s still an idiot, and I really would like to have my apparent ignorance cleared away. Please explain why, as you said earlier, this was the generals’ faults and not Bush’s.

          • Swampfox

            Read up On Gen. McAuther and the Korean War. Also Gen. Patton comes to mind. TRUE patriots

          • Colin Rafferty

            I don’t see how they are relevant. Did MacArthur stop us from going into Korea? How would the generals have stopped Bush?

          • Swampfox

            MacArthur publicly disobeyed the president. Politician start wars. Generals and peons fight them.

          • Colin Rafferty

            I agree with that. My claim (which I thought was not controversial) was that the war in Iraq was Bush’s fault. tradecraft46 wanted to blame the generals because they didn’t stop him.

          • MargaretJacobson

            The only way that Colin Rafferty served was at tennis ?

      • MargaretJacobson

        Obama removed many competent generals and replaced them with a lot of bootlickers.

  • Tradecraft46

    Now for a pardon. I know from the Army Intelligence community that General Officers place their people at risk for political reason.

    They are just as bunch of ‘Sunflowers’, and I don’t mean Kansans.

  • ONTIME

    Playing politck with the lives of our troops is going to have repercussions and pay backs are a b!tch……

  • ABBAsFernando

    The persecution of his man is intolerable. THe MUSLIM SPY in the White House is directly responsible for our suffering. I am quite certain he enjoys the suffering he is causing.

  • myfordtruck

    This man should never have been charged he was just doing his job

    • pateboo

      Whatever happened to the border guard, I think his first name is Jaime, he got thrown in prison I believe for roughing up a teenage drug smuggler, who was an illegal Mexican?

  • old_salty_dawg99

    If anyone should be locked up for how they treat Terrorists it is that TRAITOR Obammy.

  • Wayne Ogilvy

    If he had been a family member of the kennedy’s/obama’s/clintons/ he would have been awarded every service medal ever concieved and appointed ambassador to allah no questions asked ! I hope you live the remainder of your life in peace young man !!

    • Swampfox

      Sorry Wayne but your wrong.. friends, family members etc. of a**holes in Washington, would have the appointments AND BE EXEMPT FROM MILITARY SERVICE, except as a quartermaster who refuses to salute the American Flag.

  • Dan Moore

    It is shameful that he was even charged in the first place. He was sent to a combat zone to kill combatants.

  • Sam Houston

    Amen! He is finally at home and living the Life that he deserves. My Family and I thank him so much for his Service. Michael sent a letter out to his supporters thanking them and giving an update since his release. He passionately pleaded for us to take up the same cause for fellow Soldiers going thru the same tribulations.
