‘In March of 2009, convicted of killing a known Al Qaeda operative while serving in Iraq, Army Ranger 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sent toLeavenworth prison for a duration of 25 years. The Al Qaeda terrorist, ali mansur, had killed two of Behenna’s comrades and injured two others the previous year. Mansur was on the governments kill/capture list.
But Army intelligence ordered the release of the suspect and Michael was burdened with returning the terrorist to his home. (perhaps whomever made the decision to release mansur should be in prison, that would seem more of a credible charge)
During the return Mansur attacked Lt. Behenna and the Lieutenant killed the terrorist in self defense, doing the world and especially American citizens a huge favor. The United States Government, who itself ordered Michael Behenna to war in Iraq with the clear mission of defeating terrorism – who had a clear tag of kill/capture on this terrorist, subsequently prosecuted Lt. Behenna for premeditated murder and won.’
