Another American rat. U.S. will be facing off with the most high soon, disgusting nation of evil doers. I think her days are numbered. She will receive a double portion of what she has dished out to everyone, nation of devils.
Not saying what Gen Caldwell did was right if he did delay the investigation, especially if it was because of a personal relationship with the POTUS, but remember that these were Afghans doing this to other Afghans. If the investigation went on and found that the Afghans were doing such a shoddy job at treating their wounded, with our money and supplies, what were we going to do? Shut the hospital down? I suppose an aid group of doctors could come in and help the Afghan doctors or perhaps some military doctors, but our doctors are also needed to treat our wounded. And they do treat the Afghan wounded as well. I honestly don't see where any wrong on our part was done besides the actual delaying of the investigation into an Afghan hospital treating Afghan wounded. As the Col said all of their resources for their military comes from us. Its a completely different culture over there and human life is not valued in high regard. It just isn't. Money and tribal allegiance are what rule that country.
Makes you wonder what else they're hiding for Obama. It's shocking what's happened to the military in the last decade. The top tier, that is. Where's the integrity? Paging Allen West!
And CNN is reporting this? Wow. Looks like trouble in paradise. But aside from that, we've just seen how obama will use the military against U.S. citizens when he thinks the time is right. He'll see to it that is ilk; gays, muslims, and liberals fill the upper echelons of command and there you have it. I believe anyone who takes the Oath of their office and breaks that oath should be arrested, tried, and imprisoned, without exception. For to long their Oaths have been just ceremony. It used to mean something. And if the person can't be counted on to act as if it means something, he should be shown just how much it does.
Personally, I don't give a calcified damn about Afghans, especially their military. If they die, they die. In Panama, they prepared us for the possibility of being issued a coded order, or having one called into us that was explicitly an order to kill our PDF (Panama Defense Force) partner, if we had one. The Soldiers and Marines in Afghanistan should've been given the same WARNORD (Warning Order), especially in light of the fact that they are, for the most part, bloodthirsty, falafel eating murderers, looking for their opening to kill Americans, military or civilian.
The only reason I'd attack this LTG (Lieutenant General) is because of his actions endangering US servicemen, and is flat-out conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman. He should be immediately relieved of his command and placed in restricted to quarters while either USACID (United States Army Criminal Investigations Command) or DCIS (Defense Criminal Investigative Service) thoroughly examine his story, and those of all other subordinates that could have been involved. Anyone, and everyone, found to have involvement would be shipped back to CONUS for their courts martial, and face a lengthy stay at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Again, I don't care about muslim barbarians. I care about an officer that is covering up actions that speak to corruption and political cronyism. The MPs should be knocking on his door, right now.
...When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
Horrifying. Has the personnel and financial treasure spent in this hell-hole been worth it? Probably not, what with the epidemic of Afghan-on-Allies murders, and the recent defection of an entire 'police checkpoint' contingent to the Taliban in Farah province. Farah neighbours Iran. The police commander poisoned 7 of his men when they wouldn't join him and 13 others in defecting. They're really pleased with the heavy arms, radios and especially the humvees they stole. The Taliban really prizes those humvees. Words fail.
Now, prosecute that man. They prosecuted all of the enlisted Marines accused of murder in Fallujah thanks to that pickled, ass hole Kennedy and they were all found innocent but their careers were destroyed. This General must be held to a higher standard. I want a court martial and prison for this criminal. Maybe he should be tried at the Hague for war crimes.
NO HAGUE. Never let foreigner scum have anything to do with judicial matters involving an American, for ANY reason, I don't care if he set off a dirty bomb in Piccadilly Circus, London. Have the guy relieved, and all relevant staff with him; confine them to quarters; have CID or DCIS go through every communication they've ever made/received; interview everyone they've so much as said "get TF out of my way" to. If there's enough evidence, fly everybody back home that's dirty in shackles with armed MPs, to face a general courts martial. If found guilty, make their next duty station Ft. Leavenworth, KS and make sure their dishonorable discharges are so bad, not even Obama could qualify them for food stamps.
That's a remarkably restrained comment Mike. I know how much it really boils to see stuff like this done to our soldiers.
The best speech of Allen West's career, IMHO, was his speech about the guys in Fort Leavenworth. And yet the press holds sleazebags like John Murtha in high esteem. (I'd like to visit that SOB's grave so I can spit on it.)
"Hi Bill? Bill Caldwell? Sergeant Bill Caldwell? Oh right, General... Anyway this is Bari Obama Bill, You know PRESIDENT OBAMA. That's right I'm calling you myself Bill. Listen, you know we got an election coming up pretty soon here back in the states Bill. Yeah, that's right Bill, and right now things are looking a little tough, ya know Bill? Yeah that's right Bill. Hey look Bill, I'm gonna a favor Bill...somebody's complaining about some hospital that's over in there in Iraq....what's that? It's in Afghanistan? Oh right Bill, whatev...anyway, I need you to slow down an investigation on it until after the election, can you do that Bill? That's great Bill I knew I count on you. Hey, We'll have to have a beer if..I mean when you get back ok Bill? Great. Stay cool Bill."
"He calls me Bill" ?
This shows how disturbed these people are -
He thinks this is "cool"?
If I were Bill - I would be insulted
Bill was his name when he was a baby!
Zero should be calling him GENERAL - and NOT - Bill
This is what he sold his soul out for?
The devil has a new recruit -
"Bill" should be disciplined ASAP
Bunch of animals. To do that to your own troops for cash is beyond barbaric, it's criminal. We should not be in the business of subsidizing crimes like this. The hospital should be taken over by the US military immediately, it needs to be cleaned up and re-stocked with equipment and medicines, and the people who were responsible for these crimes should be shot. Yes, shot, preferably on the hospital grounds in full view of the patients they tortured. This would send a clear message to the Afghan people that the United States is NOT in the business of funding killers. Because, if we don't do something like that, what do you think the Afghan people will think of us if we do NOT act against these people? They will think we either condone it or, worse, could care less about it. Either way, we lose in the eyes of the Afghan people, and that doesn't do much for winning "hearts and minds."
Oh, man, I'm tempted to change my handle to something else but, then again, there are questionable people everywhere in all professions. However I am embarrassed that a LTG in the United States Army would delay an investigation, especially at a hospital where patients were dying needlessly, for any reason much less due to some political consideration. I guess he was hoping for a shot at becoming a General one day. Hope he doesn't have a chance for that now!!!!
Don't you feel embarassed Army_Pilot - this does not reflect on your service or any of your comrades in arms, whenever or wherever they may have served. You are the last person who should feel anything but pride in your contribution. Can a Canuck thank you? Thank you anyway. Like your posts, too.
Thanks, pm, that was very kind and is much appreciated. I tired to do my best and to serve with honor and dignity. I can look at myself in the mirror and not flinch or feel bad about my service to our great nation. Thanks coming from a Canuck is sincerely appreciated. I hope you have a great day!
Wow, your dad was a GENUINE hero during a very terrible time...he was the REAL DEAL. My hat is off to him and others who served during WWII. I've met a few WWII pilots during my lifetime and they are/were special people in my book. All who served honorably during the war are/were special individuals.
Our Dad was a pilot in the RAF in 1940. 20 years old. You'll know what that means, eh? Military pilots are my heroes! You too have a great day, and thanks for replying.
The general will say, "I wasn't talking about Obama. I was talking about the taxi driver, Mohammed "Bill" Faswahn who brought over from the hotel this morning. Didn't you know his nickname is Bill?" Then Col Mark Fassel finds a horse's head in his bed and forgets about the whole thing, and the Faswahn dude disappears off the face of the earth. Since Fassel couldn't testify that the general said, "The president called me Bill," just, "He calls me Bill," I'm afraid the wiggle room is there.
When NObama talked of shovel ready jobs, he obviously meant so they could use these shovels to bury the skeletons and cover up the information and truth that does not reflect well on Dear Leader. This hospital needs to close or be taken over and run properly and we need a proper investigation now as well to find out who knew what and when.
I wont go there and we don't need to go there. I don't believe that there is any evidence of that but the evidence we do have is damning !!!! I'm sickened to my stomach.
It seems even our military is not immune from moral relativism and the continual cover ups it takes to maintain the bad decisions that go along with it.
If "Bill" is that freaking petty, he should be court marshalled out of the service for letting combatants, under our watch, to die neeedlessly for any reason. This just shows corruption will spread to everything this administration touches if left unchecked. What makes this more nauseating is the cowardly RINOs will stick their tails between their legs and try to pretend it didn't happen. I would love to see Allen West address this madness.
He "believes" the allegations are false? Uh, dude, the comments were made by you so you can't get away with seeming to not have direct knowlege. Either you said it or you didn't, nimrod.
Obama may or may not have known about this. I'm inclined to believe he did because Obama is well known for Chicago thuggery "do it or esle" tactics.
In any case, how will Obama react? If he does nothing to Caldwell that will raise another red flag with me. Just like he did nothing with "Fast and Furious"...because he was neck deep in it.
...or you can call me an unpatriotic, America-hating, liberal-pig aka a Democrat / 3 star US General!!
God help us this stinks. I keep thinking of the people that were in this hospital. Soldiers that had been in battles, maybe even fighting along side our troops for what??!!! To be maimed in battle and then subjected to this "Auschwitz-like" hell and a 3 star General hushes it up. Why is my stomach churning??!!!
Democrat run oversite committy handling public funds? ahm sounds like dem committy needed oversite by Brinks.
This hospital was most likely run on the Obamacare model.......bribes, kickbacks, thievery, incompetence and $hit all over the place.......sounds like something you could find on any given day in Chicago.
Forget Chicago that is exactly what happened when TN tried to set up TNCARE in place of regular medicaid. The fraud and abuse by some approved providers was unbelievable. Just imagine it on a national scale. Doctors will have to be taken over by the federal government before they will put up with it.
Look bad politically? You mean look bad for Obama. Can you imagine if this happened under Bush?
You know most of that 100 million went into folks bank accounts.
What baffles me is how can a man who spent his whole life in the business of protecting our country turn around and justify protecting someone who is out to destroy it.
Do you think Obama could have directed him to delay the investigation? It's an awful big risk to do this for Obama without being under orders.
Sounds like all he had to do was call him "Bill". What would this officer do if he actually got invited to Oblahblah's birthday party?
lol. Dude there are so many liberals in the Pentagon and the military it isn't even funny! It's one of the reasons I got out.
radicals have infiltrated every major area of state and federal government.
Major Hassan was in the military and the furthest thing on his mind was protecting our country. There are bad seeds planted everywhere. They know when to sprout.
