Patriot Allen West has brought to the attention of the American public, Exhibit A that exemplifies President Barack Obama’s contempt for our military that has been displayed in the outrageous treatment of Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance, a 28-year-old combat leader in the 82d Airborne Division from Celeste, Texas. During a patrol in enemy territory, Lorance ordered a marksman to engage two unarmed Taliban fighters on a motorcycle operating as scout spotters. Lorance was recently found guilty of two counts of murder in Afghanistan and sentenced to 20 years in Ft. Leavenworth, even though he had assessed them as a threat to his platoon. Aerial surveillance later backed up Lorance’s on-the-ground assessment. It is disgraceful that a hero such as Lornace will intead be tainted by a courts-martial and military conviction.
