Posted on 03/09/2012 3:51:45 PM PST by yoe
In the face of Afghan President Hamid Karzai's call for the U.S. troops who burned Korans to be tried and punished, the White House won't say what will happen to those troops.
Connie Lawn with IRN/USA Radio Network asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Did Karzai ever express condolences for the British soldiers killed and did he explicitly apologize for the American soldiers who were killed? And what does the White House want to see done with these Americans who burned the Korans?
I think there is an investigation into that, Carney responded. You surely understand that I would not make any statements about the disposition of that investigation or how it should turn out. Secondly, I dont have any more detail for you on the call the president had with President Karzai. I would point you to statements by Minister Wardak about the incidents and his expressions of regret, Carney said referring to Afghanistan Defense Minister General Abdul Rahim Wardak
The Korans were mistakenly burned on Bagram Air Force Base.

I imagine that they were probably turned over to the Taliban for execution.
According to Islam AFAIK the graffitied Korans should have been dumped in a river, or respectfully burned... was there a lack of respect at the burning? Maybe only a Muslim can touch the match to them?
Let’s see...I think promotion to the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Distinguished Service Medals all around would be a good start.
I think the preferred method of disposal for a Koran is (strangely) to bury it...but the whole thing is just silly. If I read the Koran on my computer monitor, is it now sacred?
That being said, I pray that these soldiers are CONUS...and not in Afghanistan...so President Idiot can’t offer them up for a show trial and execution.
I’m a former officer in the Army; and, quite frankly, if Bammy tries to let the animals try these soldiers, this will be one of ‘those moments’. A moment where I would challenge my COC. The SOFA with Afghanistan does not include these types of trials, so get my men a lawyer, and fight it.
Obama to Karzai:
"Some balls are held for charity
And some for fancy dress
But when they're held for pleasure
They're the balls that I like best
Your balls are always bouncing
To the left and to the right
It's my belief that your big balls
Should be held every night"
Question is, will 0bama tolerate the sacrilege of his religion for political concern in an election year?
The GOP majority in the House should pass a resolution calling on the Afghanistan government to apologize for the deaths of U.S. soldiers. Next they need to pass a resolution to warns the President that punishment of U.S. troops over this incident will NOT be tolerated by Congress. They should threaten impeachment hearings if he does. Next Republicans in the Senate should be clear that any military officer in the grade of LTC or higher that recommends or attempts to punish any member of the military will have their commission revoked....at a minimum they will not be confirmed by congress should they ever be selected for promotion. It is time to play hardball.
I don’t like interfering with the POTUS role at CinC...but when he is abusing it, then something must be done.
They will be secretly handed over to the Muslims and later
declared dead at the scene of a helicopter crash. All
decapitated in the accident.
The Apostate-in-Chief should go to Kabul and surrender himself to Karzai for trial.
It wouldn’t surprise me if obammy asked Karzi not to do anything to them until AFTER the elections!
0pansy is a very skilled cold blooded liar, deceiver, and twister of the truth. Combine those skills with what the what he will acomplish by the whiteWash by the libMEDIA, conservatives have a battle ahead.
The lady's got balls
She's got balls
Wrong. according to muslim tradition Koran's are never to be burned. They would have descrecated Koran's weighted and deposited into a river.
Human life means nothing to him. He’s a real lowlife.
if Bammy tries to let the animals try these soldiers
If Obama does THAT and we aren’t in the streets demanding he leave office or more—we are done. That would be a most certain line in the sand.
The more important question is what’s going to happen to the President who went out of his way to apologize to Karzi???
At first I thought the headline said, “...Troops Who Burned Koreans”! Where is my mind these days?!?!?!
"Shoot straight you bastards, don't make a mess of it."
What did they do to the soldiers who burned the Bibles?
It’s not interfering with the CINC. The President doesn’t set the ‘rules’ of the military, but merely carries out the rules created by Congress.
Burning a book...is not against ANY law!!
Let’s see we have a bunch of troops who were ordered to burn the crap books and now they are supposed to be punished for doing their duty? Since when do we punish our troops on the whim of a foreign government. A real President would tell them to go suck and egg and would open fire on rioters and summarily execute the a**hat that killed two US officers.
No One, No How, No Way, will ANYONE put our people in jeopardy for all this.
Bring those boys home, and tell those 7th century neanderthals to go ditch.
If anything bad happens to those boys, there WILL BE HELL TO PAY!!
We draw a line in the SAND. And hey, rug heads, this line YOU WILL NOT CROSS.
Those boys did their job. And I love them for it.
I dunno, this is first non-stupid thing the administration has said on this whole fiasco. It gives me some hope that the miilary just intends to stonewall for a while, let this die, then say its a confidential matter while doing nothing to anyone.
nitpicky point: “go suck and egg”
I KNOW you meant “go suck AN egg”.
You were upset, and emotional, its understandable.
So I won’t make fun of you! (lol)
If I’ve done that once, I’ve done it ten thousand times.!
I’ll go to bed now.
Amen to that Brother.
But with this puke we have in the White House who know’s.
What will they be charged with, That is the question.
Theywee doing their duty burning trash and the Korans showed up. Did they even notice? can they be charged with not reading what they were burning?
In a septic tank on base would have been a better place.
Lieutenant Harry Morant and Lieutenant Peter Hancock
General Allen should protect his men at all costs...was it two or four who were shot in the back of the head...this is now murder not war. H. Karazai should be asking how he plans to punish his men for this crime...but since Obama has joined Karazai's side and surrendered, General Allen will have to keep his troops safe from the White House and Karazai. What a foolish, milksoppy, fop as this CIC turns out to be. Hands off these brave American soldiers! Contact your elected that there had better be no "punishment" for these soldiers....they are not over there to protect the Koran. They are there to quell, get rid of al Qaeda.
Indeed my FRiend
This would be a line in the sand incident at least for me
Throw in that hideous grin of his that he thinks is so cute—gag, makes we want to vomit everytime i see him do it.
Only if your are pscho. Then burning books are OK.
From the WSJ:
"Most Afghans learned about the Quran burning in Florida only when Mr. Karzai on March 24 (4 days after!) condemned the act as "a crime against the religion and the entire Muslim nation," called on the U.S. and the U.N. to bring the perpetrators to justice and demanded "a satisfactory response to the resentment and anger of over 1.5 billion Muslims around the world."
“In a septic tank on base would have been a better place.”
I see no reason to pollute a perfectly good septic tank with something quite so foul but I guess it would be okay.
“appeasing Karazai or any Muslim is also the wrong thing to do...”
Not to b. hussein obama.
“how many Christians were killed recently...”
Do you think he cares?
“Obama should be extremely careful here.”
Why? Voters should’ve been extremely careful when they believed all his lies, did no research but elected him anyway. And like idiots, they’ll ignore the obvious and vote for him again because they can’t face the truth.
After all his actions and the many telling comments he’s made, what will it take for people to realize that the occupier in our WH is a Muslim who dislikes our military, Christians (and Jews) and most of all, America??
BHO is NOT naive or ignorant - he knows exactly what he’s doing. In his mission to take us down, he’s been successful beyond his dreams.
And he’s just warming up.
