Getting our soldiers killed

I heard about a report some time ago of some moron in the army making a personal crusade of his deployment to Afghanistan. I was mad but didnt think much of it. Then I got to thinking that this kind of behavior is what is going to harm our troops overseas. The whole fight to the radicals is religious, do you really want to bring that kind of fight to them?

The idiot in question is called LTC Gary Hensley.


The man goes on Al Jazerra and says this lovely gem:

"The special forces guys -- they hunt men basically," Hensley said. "We do the same things as Christians, we hunt people for Jesus. We do, we hunt them down. Get the hound of heaven after them, so we get them into the kingdom. That's what we do, that's our business."

No sir. your business is to obey the orders of the president of the United States, and to obey the orders of the officers above you. Not to inflame the already radical Muslims in Afghanistan by going on Al Jazerra and spouting such nonsense.

You have some religious nuts in the army who will do this on their own accord, against Central Command General Order No. 1. Yes we have rules for a reason people not because we are just hard asses. Your actions are going to pour gasoline on to the fire that is radical Islam. The troops say thank you.
