Obama’s military contempt: The outrageous treatment of Clint Lorance

If the fact that the Obama Administration has blocked aging veterans from visiting the World War II memorial and denied death gratuity benefits for fallen warriors doesn’t seem to indicate contempt for our military, how about this most recent story?

Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance, a 28-year-old combat leader in the 82d Airborne Division from Celeste, Texas was recently found guilty of two counts of murder in Afghanistan and sentenced to 20 years in Ft. Leavenworth.

The story of First Lieutenant Lorance has not been covered by a single major media source.

In July 2012, Lorance was ordered to take command of a platoon in the southern Afghanistan province of Kandahar, a region where I also spent two and a half years training and advising the Afghan National Army. The platoon Lorance now commanded had lost its previous leader to enemy attack.

During a patrol in enemy territory, Lorance ordered a marksman to engage two unarmed Taliban fighters on a motorcycle operating as scout spotters.

  1. First Lieutenant Lorance should not be jailed for this! Whether or not those men were armed, their deeds were acts of war. Because they were committing acts of war, their lives should have been forfeit.

  2. I thought a war was defending oneself and those you are responsible for with force if you feel you are threatened . since when does it mean we don’t protect our fellow military men and women… this is a tragedy.

  3. obama’s daily war on America continues…This is just more of their egotistical thinking to try and bring down and weaken our military but….what? They going to do it one soldier at a time?? Their plans never work and neither do THEY. This is America, afterall!

  4. Just viewed interview of this soldiers Mother, it’s a real shame he got caught up in this mess. It’s even more annoying to know it took 4 years to try the Ft. Hood “TERRORIST” but then again he is of the “Muslim Brotherhood” our Judge Advocate General corps got their priorities all snafued it would appear, Rules of Engagement should be reviewed and this soldier should be granted an appeal to have charges reduced for a shorter sentence. The Fort Hood shooter was clearly with intent of first degree murder, whereas this soldier, may have been under duress or not ready for command…sounds like Command needs to be reviewed as well for promoting him to soon…! Just an honest opinion. Soldier Lorance also accepted his responsibility for his actions and stood by them…. something young people and adults now days fail to do.

    • This Solder was Protecting His Men!!! Commanders are Supposed to do that. Things are so screwed up for our Military over there, so BAD that they don’t need to be over there!!! Our Government sure don’t have their Backs, and the Afghanistan Government would just as soon Kill ALL of our US Forces in their Country!!!

  5. Barack Obama shows his true stripes by shutting down the memorial to older veterans. He is a typical leftist. When he doesn’t get his way, he lashes out in all directions. The reason is, in his heart of hearts, Barack Obama is a fascist!
