Putting Our Heroes In Prison?
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.
Not only is this a miscarriage of justice on the behalf of Lt. Behenna, who was acting to prevent further loss of life in his platoon, it is demoralizing to the U.S. troops who continue to fight on behalf of the freedom and security of our nation. Whether it is U.S. border patrol agents, members of the armed forces, or FBI agents, no individual who is serving on the frontlines in the War on Terror should be so blatantly mistreated...
This quick description of the outrageous actions perpetrated against Lieutenant Behenna comes from the website created in his behalf, DefendMichael.com.http://www.defendmichael.com/ There's a lot more there to help you in your response towards this sad miscarriage of justice including an electronic petition, details of how to write your Congressman and others, and a lot of other information.
