Skip to comments.Murder in Afghanistan, a Trump pardon, and the soldiers left behind

Clint Lorance had been in charge of his platoon for only three days when he ordered his men to kill three Afghans stopped on a dirt road. A second-degree murder conviction and pardon followed. Today, Lorance is hailed as a hero by President Trump and conservative media. His troops are still haunted by his crimes....

“His troops are still haunted by his crimes”
No, they are saving themselves.
And they are alive to reexamine their lives
That was his priority
How many prosecutions have there been of Iraqi and Afghani security figures who turned their weapons on our troops? I hear about the attacks but never anything after.
Are these actions war crimes?
Any other Iraqi of Afghani war criminals?

Unbelievable. The mainstream media is simply incapable of reporting the news without putting their own ugly spin in it. Even Wikipedia provides a reasonable explanation for what happened that day. From Wikipedia:
Daniel Gustafson, who served as the Battalion command sergeant major over Lorance’s platoon, testified that he was 100 percent confident that Lorance’s platoon was being scouted for an impending attack.
That doesnt mean the lieutenant or the sergeant major were correct in their assessments. But if you read the Posts headline youd think the bicyclists were simply out for a ride, and were shot just for fun.
Oh, and one more thing. George W. Bush can go to hell for putting our troops in that position in the first place.
When you remember that most of the media in the U.S. is controlled by the radical Left (aka communists), it isn't the least bit shocking or unbelievable.
The purpose of the commie media is propaganda and nothing else.
Partisan Media Shills update.
Link doesn’t go to The Washington Post.
Murder in Afghanistan, its like handing out speeding tickets at the Indy 500.
When I read that someone has served in Afghanistan, or a similar place, I think ... patriot and hero. If the next sentence says JAG, then I reserve the thought.
OMG where is the story on Bo Bergdahl you know the damn guy that served his country with honor and distinction as Susan Rice said!! (BARF)
Leftist Anti-American Twaddle.
America is still Haunted by Obama’s crimes ...
(Conspiring to coverup Treason is Treason, Obama)
One of them shot himself. I make no comment pro or con as to the allegations, but please watch the whole video and keep an open mind. It’s just 13 minutes, and it’s all direct accounts from the men who were there.
We know where the left’s affection goes. Not to soldiers. But enemy combatants.
The Trump administration is making a deal with that very Taliban. WaPo actually did some journalism for a change, and spoke to the men of the platoon.
Amen!!! And he lives life like he couldn’t care less.
He made his family money and at the end that’s all that mattered
He’s a piece of garbage

Yeah, youre right. But the depths they will stoop to still surprises me. About a week ago I was listening to a local radio station report the news. And the reporter said, Trump gave a racist speech yesterday. Evidently Trump had said Kung Flu somewhere in his talk.
I was stunned by that ugly, naked attempt to smear Trump. So after I calmed down, I fired off an email to the radio station. I havent heard back yet. Perhaps I never will. I guess they are too busy thinking up new ways to smear the president.
The true feelings of the left come out when they work hard to smear heroic American military personnel. The left has not warmed up to us since Vietnam no matter how many lies they tell each other and the world about their love for veterans. Here we go again, trying to destroy soldiers, all in accordance with their true feelings.
