Instead, the man who killed three and seriously injured a fourth has been tried as a juvenile and sentenced to a paltry seven and a half year prison term. Nearly two years ago, Khudairaham, who served as an aide to local law enforcement, brought a rifle with him to the gym at a Helmand Province forward operating base and opened fire.
He killed Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr., Cpl. Richard Rivera Jr., and Staff Sgt. Soctt Dickinson during the violent encounter Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Allen West weighed in on the light sentence during a recent Fox News interview, explaining that it will have far-reaching effects throughout the U.S. military. “This is absolutely unconscionable,” he said, noting tests indicate that Khudairaham was potentially 18 years old when he committed the crime.
The shooter “should not have been tried as a juvenile,” West noted; “and as a matter of fact, the family of Lance Cpl. Buckley was told that he was not going to be tried as a juvenile.” He called the sentencing “heinous,” suggesting that such a vicious criminal should be put to death. “He should have been tried as an adult and he should have gotten the death penalty for doing what he did in cold blood,” West contended.This injustice, he asserted, is symptomatic of widespread problems affecting America’s men and women in uniform.

Imagine how much better off America’s veterans would be if the federal government spent more time delivering actual care and less time compiling tyrannical lists. The death-inducing secret waiting lists for patients are just the tip of the iceberg.
Did you know, for example, that the VA keeps a database on “disgruntled” and “disruptive” vets that results in arbitrarily restricted care?Disabled Air Force veteran and veterans advocate/attorney Benjamin Krause has been raising questions about the system for months and warning his peers.
Under the VA policy on “patient record flags” PRFs, federal bureaucrats can classify vets as “threats” based on assessments of their “difficult,” “annoying” and “non-compliant” behavior.The VA manual says the flags “are used to alert Veterans Health Administration medical staff and employees of patients whose behavior and characteristics may pose a threat either to their safety, the safety of other patients, or compromise the delivery of quality health care.

Naturally, the Judge is correct. But there is an important distinction to RICO that was not articulated during that short, fast moving radio interview.
The blanket chant—“thank you for your service; thank you for fighting for our freedoms”—is the hallmark of a propagandized people in the grip of fanatical militarisms.
Praying To The Military Moloch
For the past few weeks, the country’s distinct national navel-gazing has shifted to the military.
It began with horror stories about the treatment of veterans at Veterans Affairs facilities across the country and has reached a crescendo in the curious case of Taliban hostage Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, exchanged for five fierce-looking Muhammadans from Afghanistan’s Jihad Central.As to the first: Backlogs, limited services, fewer service providers, substandard treatment, filthy facilities and the ensuing fatalities—these have been features of the VA system for a long time.
By Dr. Laurie RothJune 6, 2014NewsWithViews.comObama has a growing legacy that can be seen with every stroke of his ‘self proclaimed power pen.’ His declarations, regulations and manipulations run right past congress at warp speed. It is like watching a NASCAR race of evil with the Obama car crashing through cars in his way, breaking every rule while soaring to the finish line. Congress and the Senate talk politics, coffee and re election strategies while the nation and world look in horror at explosion after explosion on the US racetrack.
When you peak in Obama’s toy box of horrors you see all he has to play with in between golf games and races of evil. We see the NDAA Teddy Bear and a sea of UN Constitutional executive orders looking like Muslim army men with their bombs. He plays with his famous Obamacare computer game and his oil refinery and coal plants which burn with real looking fire.We have watched the betrayal, incompetence and lies regarding the Veterans Administration scandal. When the heat got a little too hot for Obama we saw him say his usual ‘pretend’ lines,
