So, obstructing justice and lying to investigators is all right because he was a soldier and the president is a weakling? Not buying it. Like the previous poster, if it had been just the shooting (an accident of war, by all accounts) I would be in favor of a pardon, but pardoning him after this dishonorable behavior would send the message that military personnel are above such petty things as law and order. An idea made all the more frightening by the fact that law and order are the very things that the military is in place to protect. When the military is above the law, the result is a Banana Republic.
He gave his ALL, his gift to YOU—the young man we call Evan
The blow that breaks his brow tonight shall break the dome of heaven
The chance of battle changes, So may all battle be...
Your talking out your a$$ today, cause Evan kept you FREE.
I wish I still had my innocence when it comes to exactly what the government is willing to do to the soldiers who are fighting to protect our rights..... Back to that innocence thing again lily.
There comes a point in the decay of governemnt that one is justified in taking actions necessary to protect one's own life, liberty and property.
Perhaps you would argue that a Blagojevich appointed judge should have tried him...? Of course one didn't, but it wasn't a George Washington appointed judge either, it was something in between. IMHO, the middle of the road between good and evil is evil. Enlisted grunts don't creat Bannana Republics, Generals, Presidents and Judges do.
It is a very sad state of affairs when our troops have to worry about the same kind of scmubag defense lawyers that have hounded our police forces for so many years, in addition to keeping themselves alive while killing our enemies. Now in addition to terrorists, they face criminal and civil lawsuits filed by CAIR and other TRAITORS upon return.
They now are as absolutley justified in covering up true mistakes and accidents as a rancher is in dealing with wolves on his land. SHOOT, SHOVEL AND SHUT UP !

From the time I first started to care about politics, which was when Nixon was president, the phrase “obstruction of justice” has meant to me a democrat mob saying, “We hate you, but we can’t get you for what you actually did, so we’re going to criminalize your attempts to protect yourself from us.”
This guy never should have had to worry about being persecuted in the first place, and I certainly don’t think he should be persecuted for hiding evidencce of something that shouldn’t be a crime.
