An Afghan government website has reported that NATO officials have promised to bring the American soldiers responsible for burning the Koran to justice in an open trial.
The website of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Government Media and Information Center (an official government site) states: "NATO officials promised to meet Afghan nations [sic] demand of bringing to justice, through an open trial, those responsible for the incident and it was agreed that the perpetrators of the crime be brought to justice as soon as possible."
If this is true, and we do not know yet if it is, handing over US servicemembers to a sharia court in Afghanistan could be one of the most unconscionable acts ever conducted by our government.
Obama reportedly sent a three-page letter to Afghan president Hamid Karzai, but the White House won't fully disclose the letter. A small portion of Obama's letter - suspiciously (and perhaps deliberately) ambiguous - is floating around stating "We will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible."
What does the president mean, holding the soldiers accountable to military law? They didn't do anything wrong. If they did, show us what code they violated. Or does he mean sharia law? Desecrating the Koran, especially by non-Muslims could result in the death penalty. But American soldiers are held only to US law, not Islamic law. Besides, depending on what jurist you talk to, burning of Korans is entirely permissible if the books are damaged - which the Korans in question were, at the hands of Muslims.
Of course, the White House and Pentagon are not answering questions. But this is nothing new for the president who proclaims...

Nothing Baraq Hussein Obama does will surprise me..
So much for upholding our nation’s separation of church and state. Islamic theocracy does not mean s*** to this nation.
Barack never complains when the Saudi government burns Bibles.
It sounds to me like the result is going to please absolutely nobody. NATO will carry on the trial, which no matter what happens the howling Islamists will denounce as bogus, while at the same time causing great grief to those who are being put on trial even if it ends up letting them walk.
All in the name of something that sounds like a snafu, not a planned or purposed confrontation to Islam.
Not even Barak Obama is this stupid.
I can’t say what I’m thinking.
The fact that this has not been vociferously and publicly rejected is a red flag, yes?
American Punk- the Obama Story. Soon to be shoved down the throat at a theater near you!
If they don’t turn them over now, expect berserk rioting in Afghanistan. If they do turn them over, expect berserk rioting here (oh, also in Afghanistan where they do such rioting on a moments notice for any conceivable reason).
He better DON’T!!!
I can't either. I would be arrested.
I'll just say this: If this doesn't lead to the Kenyan bastard's defeat, the republic is beyond hope.
Nope. Because he isn’t that stupid.
Next time somebody gets the bright idea to “nation build” in a country committed to the 7th century, send 30,000 laptops with a good internet connection, instead of 30,000 troops.
“expect berserk rioting here...”
Well, I’ve never been a rioter. Heck, I’ve never even been to a Black Friday sale. But I bet I could learn. This ole dog can still learn a new trick.
Never happen - if he did this, it would surely be a nail in his coffin in his re-election bid ...
The U.S. government does that for them. Didn't General McChrystal order a huge number of Bibles a while back?
That’s why I can’t say either.
Notice how the media has shut up on the whole issue?
This speaks volumes to me. I am thinking they have agreed to do this.
Nope. Because he isnt that stupid.
NEVER underestimate this America-hating Marxist. In fact...I’m calling him a Nazi from now on, because he is. He HATES “life” and believes that the State is GOD. He wants the equivalent to the “Volkswagen (The Peoples’ Car), i.e the f*ckin’ VOLT and believes that babies are a “punishment” to girls who want to spread their legs wide open just for their own pleasure.....then have their babies born with their heads crowned and have their brains sucked out. But, hey! As long as the mother “feels good”, eh, Barack? And that their “tissue” doesn’t cost the STATE any money.
I don’t really expect them to hand anyone over. Likely try them in a military court there but beyond an article 15, I can’t see anything reasonable. Obama and his cronies aren’t reasonable in their hatred of the military so I don’t know. If they do anything like the article indicates, I will protest in the streets.
