Skip to comments.Obama policy setting troop killers free in Iraq
Posted on 10/03/2011 7:57:54 AM PDT by seekthetruth
If a cop and a promising student were gunned down and the shooter was caught, only to be freed after four years, the outrage would be palpable. Politicos would fall all over themselves to register their indignation and the press would be on it for weeks.
It happened in the case of New York State Trooper John McKenna and Pace University law student Michael Glover, who were serving in Iraq with the Marine Corps Reserve. Yet this story is virtually unknown, even though the injustice is enormous and systemic.
Five years ago, Lance Cpl. Glover, having put a scholarship on hold to volunteer for combat duty in Iraq, was the pointman on a patrol outside of Fallujah when he was killed by a sniper's bullet. Capt. McKenna, Glover's platoon commander, earned a posthumous Silver Star for giving his life in an attempt to save Glover.
Months later, U.S. troops captured their killer, Muhammad Awwad Ahmad. Recently, the families of the fallen learned from the Defense Department U.S. forces turned Ahmad over to Iraqi authorities in June 2010, and that an Iraqi court set him free four months later.

We have a so-called Commander In Chief who thinks it is just fine to release Islamic terrorists to go back to killing our troops with his "Catch And Release" policy.
We have a so-called Commander In Chief who thinks it is just fine to release Islamic terrorists, fly them home to their Middle-Eastern country at US taxpayer expense, yet keeps several of our Military Sons in Leavenworth for doing their job of killing terrorists!
Amen. Thank You for posting this.
What we have ia a Commander in Chief in Name only...........
i.e. an empty shirt, with no starch and rather shabby too.
But if it's a cop and a president and two other public servants, and the shooter was caught, EVER to be freed -- that's different!
I know this is redundant but President Bush = Class, Zero = Trash!
Thank you for making calls to bring attention to Obama’s “Catch And Release” policy! We must DEMAND Congressional Hearings as to WHY terrorists are being released yet our own sons are kept imprisioned for killing terrorists!
One friend just told me he made a call to the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, and was told to call his Representative to Congress.
Well, we can do that too! CALL YOUR REP TO CONGRESS, FOLKS!
I saw him a couple of days ago standing up for the military....the GAY military members.
The Commander in Chief is AWOL.
We know it, friend. But many Americans do not know what our brave Military warriors are going through!
AND: Just this past weekend, Obama, our so-called Commander in Chief, rails at presidential candidates that they don’t stand up for our Military if they disagree with his action of changing the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy into his “I Will Ask You If You Are And I Will Tell You If I Am” policy.
LETS ALL REMEMBER, EVERYONE IN OUR U.S. HOUSE, SENATE, AND WHITE HOUSE WORK FOR WE THE PEOPLE.
AND WE THE PEOPLE WILL STAND UP FOR OUR US MILITARY WHO UPHOLD OUR CONSTITUTION AND DEFEND OUR COUNTRY AGAINST OUR ENEMIES IN ORDER TO PRESERVE OUR FREEDOMS.
Those in Washington, DC will hear from us when they do not listen and they will feel our actions at the ballot box.
Our legal President lives in Texas...Residence in Dallas and spends time in Crawford.
He has never cared for our military other wise he would have listened to the marines , the majority of Generals and officers who did not want openly serving homosexuals.
he’s using the military to attack DOMA
From there it will be teaching homosexuality to little kids
The military is a toy to further an agenda.
He only stands for allowing cross dressers and homosexuals to serve openly, even a blind person can see that this overturn of DADT is now about serving openly but overturning the bigger picture of getting rid of DOMA
“You want to be Commander-in-Chief? You can start by standing up for the men and women who wear the uniform of the United States, even when its not politically convenient.
Does ANYONE think Obama and most of his DEM Party members support our Military?

Rules of Engagement Policy
Question: Why did Congressman John Mica find it necessary to sponsor an Amendment that allows our soldiers to defend themselves if they feel their lives are in danger? Don't our soldiers also have 2nd Amendment rights?
