The Obama administration is emptying the militarys Guantanamo Bay detention facility of avowed terrorists captured fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, but several American service members languish in another military prison for actions on those same battlefields that their supporters say merit clemency, if not gratitude.
Among the prison population at Fort Leavenworth, in Kansas, are remaining members of the so-called Leavenworth 10, convicted service members doing terms ranging from 10 to 40 years for heat-of-the-battle decisions their supporters say saved American lives.
The very people who protect our freedoms and liberties are having their own freedoms and liberties taken away, said retired U.S. Army Col. Allen West, a former congressman and political commentator. I think its appalling and no one is talking about this issue."
The "Leavenworth 10" is the name given to a fluctuating number of men housed at Leavenworth for actions in Iraq and Afghanistan that their supporters say were justified. Over the years, a handful have been paroled, and more have been incarcerated.

I despise obama more than anything in the world.
let’s get this moron in a suit out of office and make sure the next president takes care of the LONG LIST of insanity.
So do I, and have from the first day that arrogant pos set foot in the People’s Hous
Some of these soldiers are doing time for conducting themselves as any other soldier would have done in any other conflict in any other time.
One young man, a 2nd lt at the time, directed his men to fire on a nuisance motorcycle that they feared may have been a bomber bike. OFF TO Prison AMERICAN.
THE CRIMINAL IS THE ONE OCCUPYING OUR HOUSE!
All young men (and women)—steer clear of military service. The pentagon brass at Obammys insistence are gunning for you.
Obama is a loathsome piece of garbage.
i’m trying not to get myself even more sick in the next eight months.
this man’s taken too many years off my life already. I wont let him take more.
and if our guy doesn’t win, I wont recognize the POTUS anymore anyway.
then the real business begins
Because WE DONT HAVE 4 years left.
It is absolutely outrageous.
The sorry excuse for the CinC is very much more concerned for radical muslim terrorists than Americans who risked their lives for our country.
Jan. 20, 2017 can’t get here quick enough for 0bama, the sorry _resident.
Evil is not really that hard to identity.
...Odungo just being Odungo, I still say Joanne Chisimard’s welcome back” party is just around the corner.
Every candidate needs to give an answer to this outrage. Filthy,PIG raping, MUSLIM, shit stains are released to maim, kill, and terrorize. American soldiers, who likely pose NO threat to American Citizens, are shown no mercy.
