    President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the ensuing months with...

    This week, in a surprising reversal, the U.S. Army decided to retain SFC Charles Martland in the Armed Services of the United States. The decorated Green Beret survived a long-term effort by the Army to kick him out after he physically confronted a local Afghan commander pedophile. The incident occurred in northern Afghanistan in 2011. Since that time, the Army has tried to administratively remove SFC Martland from the Armed services. In a telephone interview, Martland told Fox News: "I am real thankful for being able to continue to serve." He loves his job and the Army and Martland expressed...

    The Army on Thursday announced its decision to retain Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland, who was ordered discharged last year after he roughed up a local Afghan police commander for repeatedly raping a little boy and then beating his mother. Outrage against the Army’s actions rightfully ensued after the incident, since the Green Beret had served honorably for more than 11 years and most would argue that taking a stand against a child rapist was the right thing to do, morally speaking.

    In a stunning reversal, the U.S. Army decided late Thursday to retain a decorated Green Beret it had planned to kick out after he physically confronted a local Afghan commander accused of raping a boy over the course of many days. *snip* "In SFC Martland’s case, the Army Board for Correction of Military Records determination modified a portion of one of SFC Martland’s evaluation reports and removed him from the QMP list, which will allow him to remain in the Army," said Lt. Col. Jerry Pionk.

    As most of you know, Sgt. Martland is a decorated Green Beret who is being thrown out of the army for tuning up an Afghan child rapist. If the army separates him on a Tuesday morning, I would hope he'd have a solid job offer by that Tuesday afternoon.

    Army Secretary John McHugh on Tuesday agreed to postpone discharging an Army Green Beret for his role in beating an Afghan police official who was sexually abusing an Afghan boy. The decision was announced after Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, asked McHugh to give Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland time to prepare an appeal. "Out of respect for Chairman Thornberry's continued strong support for our military, and his personal appeal, Secretary McHugh has agreed to postpone Sgt. First Class Martland's discharge from the Army for 60 days to allow him to file an appeal...

    In the Obama military, you can celebrate immorality — but you can’t confront it. That’s the lesson the Army is trying to teach the Green Beret’s Charles Martland. A hero by both record and reputation, Sergeant First Class Martland is about to lose his career over something that any parent or decent American would have done: intervene in the violent rape of an innocent boy. When Martland confronted the attacker (a member of the Afghan police), the rapist laughed off the soldier’s horror, insisting it was “just a boy.” Shocked and outraged, the Sergeant and a fellow Green Beret said...

    A Green Beret who may be pushed out of the Army for beating up an alleged child rapist sees a parallel between the U.S. military's failure to stop child rape in Afghanistan and a scandal at home: The abuse of children in the Penn State University football program. Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland, a former college football player, made the comparison in a letter sent to Rep. Duncan Hunter, R.-Calif., Tuesday night and released to The Washington Post. It comes as he faces the possibility of involuntary separation for his actions in September 2011, when he and his commanding officer,...

    Rep. Vern Buchanan (R., Fla.) is demanding that the decorated Green Beret who blew the whistle on U.S.-allied Afghan forces raping boys be reinstated by the Army immediately. Buchanan labeled war hero Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland’s dismissal from the force a “national disgrace.” Martland stood up for an Afghan rape victim in 2011. “Driving Sgt. Martland out of the Army is a national disgrace,” Buchanan said in a statement. “He stood up for American values and should be commended, not punished.” This week, reports surfaced that U.S. soldiers and Marines have been instructed to ignore suspicions of Afghan forces...

    Reports claim possible sexual abuse by Afghan commanders The Defense Department is facing mounting criticism for its handling of child abuse allegations involving Afghan commanders, including revived claims that U.S. soldiers were instructed to look the other way when Afghan troops and officers were sexually abusing boys. As first reported by Fox News, the Army is under scrutiny for moving to kick out Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland, after he got in trouble for shoving an Afghan police commander accused of raping a boy. This was followed by The New York Times reporting Monday that American soldiers were...

The litany of Green Beret frustration was detailed this week by...
