Testimonial of Active Duty Soldier

1st Cavalry Division - "Firsts"!

As a current Active Duty Soldier serving his second tour in Iraq, I swear, again, that I will uphold the Constitution and support and defend the citizens of the United States of America against Enemies Foreign and Domestic! 1st Cavalry Division representing!

So where were you when Jose Padilla, US CITIZEN, was jailed and held without trial for three years?

never mind, just saw #3. I should read more carefully before I have a knee jerk reaction. Sorry.

That's OK anon. We understand. At least you had the manners to post again when you saw that we are aware that both parties have severely damaged the Constitution - the protections of the Bill of Rights are nearly completely torn down.

Others left presumptive comments and then never posted again even after being patiently corrected.

Welcome. Hope you stick around.

When did that happen? I was probably training to deploy to Iraq, like we always do.

I did some research and found out that he was falsely accused of a "dirty bomb" attack and held as an enemy combatant for 3 and a half years. In 2002 I was still a civilian. I joined in July of 2005.

Thanks, Woody! Please, encourage your fellow soldiers to read the Constitution. If we don't know what is says, how can we support and defend it?

Stewart said...

Woody, what I was referring to most is the idea that even an American citizen, here at home, can be detained by the military without indictment, and even tried by military tribunal, not by jury - in other words, just like foreign enemies are treated, such as in Iraq and Afghanistan - under the laws of war.

And now those claimed powers are in the hands of Obama, who may be tempted to use them internally, especially against any domestic militia. That is a serious powder keg.

We will post more about that soon, likely by Wed or Thur.

Not on my watch either!
I am a 100% service connected disabled veteran and I have followed all of this for 17 years. I ordered and passed out a case of " Operation Vampire killers" years ago.
I will fight to the death, I am asking all you heroic oath keepers to remember me, I will cover you as well!
