Back in 2014, I wrote a slew of angry blog posts about the Obama administration’s handling of swapping Gitmo prisoners to secure Bergdahl’s release, coupled with the Obama administration efforts to cast Bergdahl as a “war hero” – here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here. I was sickened by the Obama administration spin efforts and appalled that President Obama was publicly inserting himself into the U.S. military judicial process.
It was unquestionably undue command influence, that even if it wasn’t “illegal”, it was irresponsible and reprehensible conduct from a commander, at any level.
At the request of many, I will be reviewing the case of a “U.S. Military hero,” Major Matt Golsteyn, who is charged with murder. He could face the death penalty from our own government after he admitted to killing a Terrorist bomb maker while overseas.
Coming directly from the commander-in-chief, well it’s appalling and should be roundly condemned. That President Trump reacted to FOX pundit spin efforts, did not seek advice from his administration advisers, and blasted out a tweet, speaks to reckless and irresponsible conduct.
Lady Justice in America needs to keep her scales balanced and her blindfold securely in place. Too bad so many conservative and Republican Trump followers now behave like vile, pathetic hypocrites and have become worse than the Obama cult, whom they reviled and criticized for 8 years.
