Lakin court martial, Terrorists Have More Rights than Lakin
I was listening to coverage of the terrorist trial taking place in civilian court recently and came to the same obvious conclusion as Dr. Kate.
“Terrorists Have More Rights than Army LTC Lakin”
“In Obama’s siege of America, terrorists get trials, and decorated Army officers go to jail. In other words, treason is the rule: Obama provides aid and comfort to the enemy, and through sedition, rules of engagement, deployments, and malicious prosecution, attacks the armed forces of the United States.
The Terrorists with Rights
Obama’s so-called “justice department”, led by terrorist-sympathizer Eric Holdup brings terrorists to New York for a civilian trial based on the U.S. legal system, where great care is taken to protect the terrorist by excluding evidence obtained by torture.”
“Defendant Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani denies helping al-Qaeda kill 224 people in the 1998 US embassy bombings in Africa. The judge ruled the witness could not testify as he had been named by Mr Ghailani while he was “under duress”. A BBC correspondent says the move complicates plans to try Guantanamo detainees in civilian courts. The Obama administration is hoping to hold such trials for a number of high-profile inmates, including alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. New York Judge Lewis Kaplan postponed Mr Ghailani’s trial, which had been due to begin on Wednesday. The decision was a blow to U.S. prosecutors.”
“The Birth Certificate, or Jail for a Decorated Officer?
Decorated Army officer LTC Terrence Lakin, in court-martial proceedings for following proper procedure in ensuring his orders are lawful, is denied his right to obtain evidence–not even by torture–and told to ‘get another defense’ because the credentials of the Commander in Chief who gave the orders are embarrassing.”
“In refusing to obey orders because of his doubts as to their legality, LTC Lakin has acted exactly as proper training dictates. That training mandates that he determine in his own conscience that an order is legal before obeying it…Indeed, he has publicly stated that he “invites” his own court martial, and were I the Convening Authority, I would have acceded to his wishes in that regard. But thus stepping up the bar, LTC Lakin is demonstrating the courage of his convictions and his bravery. That said, it is equally essential that he be allowed access to the evidence that will prove whether he made the correct decision.”
