In the face of Afghan President Hamid Karzai's call for the U.S. troops who burned Korans to be tried and punished, the White House won't say what will happen to those troops.
Connie Lawn with IRN/USA Radio Network asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Did Karzai ever express condolences for the British soldiers killed and did he explicitly apologize for the American soldiers who were killed? And what does the White House want to see done with these Americans who burned the Korans?
I think there is an investigation into that, Carney responded. You surely understand that I would not make any statements about the disposition of that investigation or how it should turn out. Secondly, I dont have any more detail for you on the call the president had with President Karzai. I would point you to statements by Minister Wardak about the incidents and his expressions of regret, Carney said referring to Afghanistan Defense Minister General Abdul Rahim Wardak
The Korans were mistakenly burned on Bagram Air Force Base.

I imagine that they were probably turned over to the Taliban for execution.
According to Islam AFAIK the graffitied Korans should have been dumped in a river, or respectfully burned... was there a lack of respect at the burning? Maybe only a Muslim can touch the match to them?
Let’s see...I think promotion to the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Distinguished Service Medals all around would be a good start.
I think the preferred method of disposal for a Koran is (strangely) to bury it...but the whole thing is just silly. If I read the Koran on my computer monitor, is it now sacred?
That being said, I pray that these soldiers are CONUS...and not in Afghanistan...so President Idiot can’t offer them up for a show trial and execution.
I’m a former officer in the Army; and, quite frankly, if Bammy tries to let the animals try these soldiers, this will be one of ‘those moments’. A moment where I would challenge my COC. The SOFA with Afghanistan does not include these types of trials, so get my men a lawyer, and fight it.
Obama to Karzai:
"Some balls are held for charity
And some for fancy dress
But when they're held for pleasure
They're the balls that I like best
Your balls are always bouncing
To the left and to the right
It's my belief that your big balls
Should be held every night"
Question is, will 0bama tolerate the sacrilege of his religion for political concern in an election year?
The GOP majority in the House should pass a resolution calling on the Afghanistan government to apologize for the deaths of U.S. soldiers. Next they need to pass a resolution to warns the President that punishment of U.S. troops over this incident will NOT be tolerated by Congress. They should threaten impeachment hearings if he does. Next Republicans in the Senate should be clear that any military officer in the grade of LTC or higher that recommends or attempts to punish any member of the military will have their commission revoked....at a minimum they will not be confirmed by congress should they ever be selected for promotion. It is time to play hardball.
I don’t like interfering with the POTUS role at CinC...but when he is abusing it, then something must be done.
They will be secretly handed over to the Muslims and later
declared dead at the scene of a helicopter crash. All
decapitated in the accident.
The Apostate-in-Chief should go to Kabul and surrender himself to Karzai for trial.
It wouldn’t surprise me if obammy asked Karzi not to do anything to them until AFTER the elections!
0pansy is a very skilled cold blooded liar, deceiver, and twister of the truth. Combine those skills with what the what he will acomplish by the whiteWash by the libMEDIA, conservatives have a battle ahead.
The lady's got balls
She's got balls
Wrong. according to muslim tradition Koran's are never to be burned. They would have descrecated Koran's weighted and deposited into a river.
Human life means nothing to him. He’s a real lowlife.
if Bammy tries to let the animals try these soldiers
If Obama does THAT and we aren’t in the streets demanding he leave office or more—we are done. That would be a most certain line in the sand.
The more important question is what’s going to happen to the President who went out of his way to apologize to Karzi???
At first I thought the headline said, “...Troops Who Burned Koreans”! Where is my mind these days?!?!?!
"Shoot straight you bastards, don't make a mess of it."
