I followed the link and laughed hysterically.

West isn’t a war criminal, but for that jacket and tie he should be arrested by the fashion police!

So what was the “war crime”?

In fact Col. West simply used the force necessary to save lives.

That somebody believe he should have offered them M&Ms, doesn’t impress me.

Why would liberals support a War Criminal/War President like Obama? He attacked Libya without provocation.

West is my favorite candidate right now.

I support Trump on his going after Obama’s failure to prove eligibilty but Allen West would be someone I would vote for.

This won’t fly. It won’t even come close. West is a hero, a courageous man who speaks his mind, a man to be admired.

I hate to tell them that West’s “crime” is one of the reasons I support him.

"Why Would Republicans Support A War Criminal Like Allen West ?"

Well, speaking for myself, the fact that he would use his judgement to determine that a scumbag in his custody had knowledge that would save the lives of his men and advance the mission (and would use the appropriate means to get the information out of the terrorist) is enough to garner my support.

West is telling it like it is, just like Trump, they will both be targets of the MSM from now on.

I remember that incident. It concerned a planned ambush that put the lives of his soldiers were in imminent danger. So he slapped some scumbag around who had knowledge of a ambush plot, and scared him with a gun. The terrorist spilled his guts and the ambush was thwarted. Who would you rather have for a president? This guy or another lawyer??

What are the libs going to do when LTG (Ret) Rick Sanchez runs for Senator in Texas? He was the guy at the top when the worst of Abu Ghraib was going on.

But not Iran, Venezuela or Cuba, all worse human rights violators than Gaddafi.

What Allen West did in Iraq hardly rised to the level of war criminal. I’d just call him a hard azz and give him a medal and leave it at that. What West did to that Iraqi is nothing that can’t happen to you on Saturday night in Buckhead. LOL!!

Thanks for the reply. This is fascinating.

For whoever might be interested, I googled “DivArty”, and the second hit from the top concerned a book called “A Missing Link in Leadership, The Trial of Colonel Allen West”, by Dr Richard Berry, whose interest seems to be “leadership”. The Introduction is there to read, and I just read it.

Here’s a quote from the intro, which is available at :
Link:

http://books.google.com/books?id=hJpFEeU7P_4C&printsec=frontcover&dq=DivArty,+allen+west&source=bl&ots=QnveWqJpci&sig=no3FKTkqAsMn-PiJYKzqecNIM_c&hl=en&ei=_7evTfraPIfPiAKk6e2vBg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&sqi=2&ved=0CCMQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q&f=false

“This story provides the details of an Army unit engaged in combat in Iraq where the leader (Lieutenant Colonel Allen West) is forced to chose between standing orders from his superiors and the life of his soldiers who are under his charge. “

West was assigned to run local elections in Tikrit (if one remembers, Saddam’s “dead enders” were trying to intimidate potential voters from participating). West was informed by military intelligence, who had information from three sources, about a plot to assassinate him and his unit. Eight days later, his patrol actually was ambushed, although none of the soldiers were killed. Subsequently an Iraqi police officer was identified as being involved with the plotters. This was the guy who West interrogated.

So, Col West made his choice. How about the rest of us? Who do you want covering your back? Col West, or Barak Obama? OK, that wasn’t fair. Col West, or Chuck Shumer?

If you really want to have fun, contrast LTC West’s actions and treatment with that meted out to LTC Nate Sassman. West Point Protection Agency covered Sassman, the former quaterback while LTC West was hung out to dry by the WPPA.

Real reason the 4ID ADC(M) was headed to Taji was the piss poor command climate in the DivArty that was commanded by, oh yeah, the former West Point boxing coach
