APPEALS FOR ARMED FORCES RULES AGAINST
1LT MICHAEL BEHENNA BY A ONE-VOTE MARGIN
SHORT OF PRESIDENTIAL PARDON (CLEMENCY),
FORMER ARMY RANGER STUCK IN LEAVENWOTH

Close, but no cigar. By a one vote margin, a ballot of 3-to-2, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled a former Army Ranger, accused of murdering an Iraqi detainee in 2008, will remain in prison for at least 12 more years.

If the vote had been reversed, 1LT Michael Behenna of Oklahoma would have been on his way home to his family, a free man at last. Instead, he is still a prisoner and his last legal appeal has been exhausted.

Now, the only way the Army combat veteran can be released before 2024, is by a Presidential pardon. Want to take odds that Barack Hussein Obama will bother with the case? Does he even care?

WHY CAN'T THEY SEE - SHOOTING IN SELF-DEFENSE

Many of our readers do. We have done three stories already on this travesty of justice that has landed Mike Behenna behind bars.

How many people realize the so-called "victim" here was an Al-Qaida operative who may have been involved in the killing of two American soldiers in Behenna's outfit, and that Ali Mansur lunged for the lieutenant's weapon while under interrogation in a gravel pit. Two shots rang out, Mansur was dead, and the U.S. military was about to begin a quest to destroy one of their own.

The 28 year-old onetime Ranger is more concerned about his loving parents, Scott and Vicki Behenna back home, than he is for his present grim predicament.

We urge our readers to contact President Obama's office (save the stamp, and e-mail Obama), and also plead with Presidential candidate Mitt Romney to pardon the officer as soon as the Republican ex-governor becomes our next president.
