Obama policy setting troop killers free in Iraq
The Washington Examiner ^ | October 3, 2012 | SeekTheTruth

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.

I will ask AGAIN! Where is the Commander In Chief who stands up for our U.S.Military? I sure don't see him!

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!

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!

The Commander in Chief is having an event at the Bush Center. I know I'm living in a dream world but, boy I miss President Bush. Now we get photos of Zero with the Panthers?

I know this is redundant but President Bush = Class, Zero = Trash!

PATRIOTS EVERYWHERE!

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!

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.

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

We Florida Freepers will make the call to our reps and send a nice email demanding Congressional Hearings on the following Military Issues:

Catch and Release Policy
Question: Why are Islamic Terrorists being allowed to go free back to their countries to kill our troops again, while our Military sons are in Leavenworth for killing Islamic terrorists?

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?

Withdrawal of Troops Policy.
Question: How can we leave 3000 military members in enemy territory with no back up defense?

Killer terrorists released while our warriors are charged with alleged crimes and do time behind bars for doing their jobs and taking out the adversary.

The current ‘leadership’ is aiding and abetting the enemy.

Thanks for the ping. EVERY AMERICAN should be outraged about this so-called Commander In Chief's treatment of our brave Military!

Barak Obama:
“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 it’s not politically convenient.”

Since when has Obama been concerned about the morale of our brave men and women in uniform? This Administration's Rules Of Engagement and Catch and Release policies are nothing but panderings to Islamic terrorists at the grave expense of our brave men and women in uniform. Obama’s Administration's dangerous policies have been nothing but political convenience as he panders to his Code Pink / Military Hater “Progressive” base.

WE THE PEOPLE will not sit by and let Obama and his Administration endanger our young sons and daughters who go into battle against those terrorists who wish to kill Americans!

Ask them WHEN they are going to demand that the House Armed Services Committee Chairman is going to call for Congressional Hearings on this Administration's Catch and Release Policy, Rules of Engagement, and WHEN we are going to release our Military members from Leavenworth!

From the article:

In July, the administration tried quietly to transfer Ali Mousa Daqduq, a Lebanese Hezbollah commander working at the behest of the Iranians, over to Iraqi authorities. Among other acts of terror, Daqduq masterminded the killing of five American soldiers. A group of U.S. senators wrote the Pentagon to prevent Daqduq’s transfer because it was almost certain he'd be released or allowed to escape. The administration has yet to turn him over, but remains committed to doing so by year's end.

Most media reports about Daqduq and other dangerous detainees being transferred to Iraqi authorities give the impression that this is an aberration, and that the Obama administration's hands are tied by the agreement signed by the previous administration. Nonsense. The Obama administration can still detain terrorist outside Iraq, rather than hand them over to the Iraqis so they can be turned loose to kill again.

Comments from Congressman Allen West:

Next, I want to bid farewell to two traitors who got their proper punishment, Mr. al-Awlaki and Mr. Samir Khan. There are those, to include a couple of GOP Presidential candidates, who believe these dangerous men should have been brought back to the United States for due process. They did get due process- by way of an American Hellfire missile.

Let me be straightforward, any American who decides to become a non-state, non-uniform belligerent on this 21st Century Battlefield and incite insurrection and death upon Americans from a foreign land, deserves a one way ticket to Hell.

We have a weak leader when it comes to fighting the enemy, because our enemies are not Obama’s. I’m beginning to think the only reason he killed bin Laden and Al Awlaki, aside for the votes, is that it is easier for him to kill a few, than actually go to combat against the hordes of Al Qaida.

I couldn't agree with you more! So many Tea Party Leaders want to organize rallies about just the economy, and I believe many have no idea about these Military issues and National Security issues that need great attention! So many do not realize that attacks on our New York City and Washington, DC are attacks that immediately cause terrible economic problems! Without National Security we will have no economy!

Ovomit’s hatred for America has no bounds. His association with Marxists goes way back. See here:
http://patriotsforamerica.ning.com/forum/topic/show?id=2734278%3ATopic%3A287974&xgs=1&xg_source=msg_share_topic

Today and tomorrow we need to keep up the phone calls and emails demanding Congressional Hearings on the Catch and Release Policy. WE MUST STAND WITH OUR MILITARY because no one in Obama's Administration will! Please make a call to your Rep and to Rep. McKeon's office. He is the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and is the one to call for the Hearings.

Friends, this is an opportunity to take an united stand in support of our troops in harm's way. Please find below the email from the fearless Beverly Perlson, head of The Band of Mothers. Calls are to be made continously, throughout this week:

Please folks, as of Monday morning PLEASE CALL BUCK McKEON’s office and ask them what they are doing regarding Col West's request, sent in August, asking for congressional hearings on the catch and release policies!!! Our troops catch the murdering terrorists and this administration's “catch and release” policy lets them go to kill more of our troops!

Enough of this!!! YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE HERE BY MAKING ONE PHONE CALL ...Buck McKeon is the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee... (202) 225-1956.

If you will, also please ask them when they will be releasing our Soldiers from Leavenworth!
Catch and release!!!

Please be polite but firm. I believe the only way these hearings will take place is if the American people demand them.

Thank You
Beverly Perlson
The Band of Mothers

Obama policy setting troop killers free in Iraq
By: Kieran Lalor | 10/01/11 8:05 AM
Special to The Examiner

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.

Glover and McKenna are dead and buried, but the man who killed them roams free to kill more Americans. Unfortunately, this miscarriage of justice is not an isolated incident. It is a policy of the Obama administration.

Under the Iraq Security Agreement signed by the Bush administration in 2008, all detainees left in Iraq by the end of 2011 have to be turned over to the Iraqis. For the most part, the Bush White House was giving the pickpockets and common criminals over to the Iraqis but moving dangerous terrorists who had killed Americans to places like Guantanamo Bay to be held for military trials.

The Obama administration wanted to shutter Gitmo and believed that enemy combatants captured on overseas battlefields deserved federal civilian trials. When American public opinion thwarted this policy, Obama found himself boxed into a self-created ideological corner. Rather than adjust the flawed position, the administration began turning over to the Iraqis even non-Iraqi terrorists who killed Americans in Iraq.

In July, the administration tried quietly to transfer Ali Mousa Daqduq, a Lebanese Hezbollah commander working at the behest of the Iranians, over to Iraqi authorities. Among other acts of terror, Daqduq masterminded the killing of five American soldiers. A group of U.S. senators wrote the Pentagon to prevent Daqduq’s transfer because it was almost certain he'd be released or allowed to escape. The administration has yet to turn him over, but remains committed to doing so by year's end.

Most media reports about Daqduq and other dangerous detainees being transferred to Iraqi authorities give the impression that this is an aberration, and that the Obama administration's hands are tied by the agreement signed by the previous administration. Nonsense. The Obama administration can still detain terrorist outside Iraq, rather than hand them over to the Iraqis so they can be turned loose to kill again.

Every service member who picked up a rifle or manned a post in the last 10 years did so with the goal of killing or capturing the likes of Muhammad Awwad Ahmad and Ali Mousa Daqduq. The Obama administration is undoing their hard work.
