What ! President gives a pardon and he is not a terrorist or scam artist or drug runner.

Remember when Hussein Pardoned these demons. Mashur Abdallah Ahmed al Sabri, one of the members of the USS Cole cell, has already been released by Barack Obama from Guantanamo Bay.

Sabri was rated as a high risk terrorist who is ”is likely to pose a threat to the US, its interests, and allies”, but that was no obstacle for Obama who had already fired one Secretary of Defense for being slow to free dangerous Al Qaeda terrorists and was browbeating his latest appointee over the same issue.
What was Obama thinking, however, when he ordered the release of Oscar Lopez Rivera? During the 1970s, Lopez Rivera headed a Chicago-based cell of the Armed Forces of National Liberation (FALN), which waged a futile but violent struggle to win Puerto Rican independence.

The FALN claimed responsibility for more than 120 bombings between 1974 and 1983 in a wave of senseless destruction that killed six and injured dozens. In 1981, a federal court in Chicago sentenced Lopez Rivera, then 37, to 55 years for seditious conspiracy, armed robbery, interstate transportation of firearms and conspiracy to transport explosives with intent to destroy government property.

On March 20th, 2009, Army Ranger 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing Ali Mansur, a known Al Qaeda operative while serving in Iraq. Mansur was known to be a member of an Al Qaeda cell operating in the lieutenant’s area of operation and Army intelligence believed he organized an attack on Lt. Behenna’s platoon in April 2008 which killed two U.S. soldiers and injured two more. Army intelligence ordered the release of Mansur and Lt. Behenna was ordered to return the terrorist to his home.
During the return of Mansur, Lt. Behenna again questioned the Al Qaeda member for information about other members of the terrorist cell, and financial supporters. During this interrogation, Mansur attacked Lt. Behenna, who killed the terrorist in self-defense. The government subsequently prosecuted Lt. Behenna for premeditated murder.
In 2014 Michael Behenna was offered parole after serving 5 years for killing the Al-Qaeda operative in 2008.
Behenna was serving a 15-year sentence in a military prison at Fort Leavenworth.
On Monday, while out with his mother, 1st Lt. Behenna got a call from President Donald Trump who pardoned him.
As military advocate Beverly Perlson said, “What joyous news!!! Finally, the Good Soldier who fought for his country and protected his Brothers receives recognition from his Commander-in-Chief that he is a Good Soldier and a free man and finally able to enjoy all the freedoms he sacrificed and fought to provide to all of us!”
This was only possible because of the man who sits in the White House today.

    There are several others who were in a combat situation and had to make split second decisions involving the safty of their troops who are now either facing prison terms of in prison. They had exculpatory evidence withheld by the prosecution.

        Very sorry to say -- I agree with you. Been too long since we had a president that truly cared about the military and how they are treated.

            Apparently the Russian Hoax is not out of the way. Now the Senate Intel committee is call Don Jr. to testify again and the Idiot House is trying to redo the Mueller report it seems like it will never end. The Dims will continue until either Trump is gone or they are totally destroyed in the 2020 elections. It is a shame to dee how far a (Used to be) Great political party has fallen. the party of Truman and Kennedy is no more.

              The big step remaining is for Barr to prosecute those behind Spygate and the false accusations made to cover it up. He needs to do this before they can waste even more time.

              Those idiots don’t understand jr is not the POTUS.
              Every thing they do from here on out will only expose their guilt.
              Bring Mueller in He can’t talk about anyone in the report by law. He can explain when he knew The dossier and the basis of the investigation was false. Why did he stack the deck with 18 angry Demons. Why did he ignore the crime Clinton committed paying and conspiring with foreign agents to influence the 2016 election and his conflict of interest plus many more....

    Listened to the interview on Sean Hannity. If you look at the case, the prosecutorial misconduct in his trial was ridiculous as they suppressed the exculpatory evidence of the forensic analyst which supported the self-defense claim made by the Lt.

    Not sure why there was ever a problem with this situation.....We did send him over there to kill these people.....they do not abide by the rules of war.....they in fact should be viewed as "Pirates" which under the rules of war allows our guys to do anything they want.

    BTW....how is what he did any different than Obama authorizing a drone strike. When you do that there is often someones little kid in the car or building. The crum-crusher is "innocent" , just like all the kids in Japan and Germany that were killed in WW2. What the hell is the difference. In war you kill people. If the politicians don't like it they should stay out of wars.

      These critters that come into our lives are absolutely the BEST therapy we can get....formal or informal. Mine was a golden/lab mix. With me for 13 years. Forced to let him go due to health problems. Vet came to my home to release him.
      I know they aren't cheap but, a vet visit is a good idea. Best wishes to you and Murphy.

        Thanks Bob, he seemed to be a bit better today, my wife should be taking him to the vet now, I had to go to work but before I left the house, I took him out, when we came back in he wanted to be with his wives and daughters...they love him and are very concerned also...looked like a pile of white fur on the couch when I left.

        We breed Maltese and he has fathered many beautiful grand children...we also sit for our babies when their new parents go away...Murph has to inspect them when they come back home to make sure they are happy and well.

        He's a great Dad.
