I sat down Monday evening and pondered connecting the dots on something I consider a national security issue: the growing list of military officers being prosecuted for questionable reasons. When Im out traveling, many folks ask me if there is a targeted purging of military leaders. Im never one to join in on conspiracy theories, but there have been some recent instances that we should pay attention to and perhaps there are more, of which you our astute readers are aware.
Perhaps the most recent is Army LTC Jason Amerine. LTC Amerine, who is according to CNN, a Special Forces war hero who played an instrumental role in the overthrow of the Taliban in the months after 9/11, is now under investigation over a purported unauthorized disclosure relating to a U.S. hostage held overseas that was made to U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunters office.
A plan was developed in the Pentagon by Amerine, most recently a planner on the U.S. Army staff, to secure the release of those American hostages, according to a staff member on Hunters committee. The plan was to release Haji Bashir Noorzai, a prominent member of the Taliban who is in prison in the States on drug trafficking charges, in exchange for US Army SGT. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held by the Taliban until last year as well as other Taliban hostages.
They were: Caitlin Coleman, a U.S. citizen, and her husband, Canadian citizen Joshua Boyle, and Warren Weinstein, an American aid worker held by al-Qaida who was inadvertently killed in a CIA drone strike in January. In a Facebook post this month, Amerine made his first public comments about the investigation, writing: I have been under criminal investigation for the last four months for whistleblowing to Congress over our completely dysfunctional system for recovering hostages.

Sir, sometimes a 'conspiracy theory' is just a conspiracy.
Sadly Col. West, the msm won’t cover it and the liv don’t care anyhow.
‘Purging’ of military leaders?
If it walks like a duck, and acts like a duck,...
0 has fired over 500 high ranking officers that disagreed with him at last count. Imagine that? Someone who has never served is making those types of decisions!
Has it been 500? It has been many, but not sure of that number. Also, many presidents never served in the military and have understood the importance of our military strength. I do feel the frustration of the poster though..
