Our Muslim Commander in Chief Finally Embarrassed Into Doing the Right Thing
by Jim Emerson, staff writer
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 his appreciation to Congressman Duncan Hunter and Hunter’s Chief of Staff, Joe Kasper who fought Obama’s Army bureaucracy on the soldier’s behalf.
Martland has been described by many of his teammates as the finest soldier they have ever served alongside. He was on his second tour in Afghanistan when the incident occurred. During this deployment he and his Detachment Commander were aware of the abuse of power by Afghan police commanders “[in] the rape of a 15-year-old girl and the honor killing of a commander’s 12-year-old daughter for kissing a boy.” The commanders were not held accountable in either case by the Afghan government. The American soldiers knew they could no longer stand by and allow the American trained police to commit atrocities against children.
Early in September of 2011, the young victim and his mother showed up at the remote Special Forces outpost seeking help for their injuries. A medical exam confirmed the boy had been raped by Abdul Rahman. When confronted, Rahman laughed at the Americans, knowing he would not be held accountable. After the confrontation with the pedophile, “Sgt. Martland admitted “striking” the Afghan commander for “kidnapping and brutally raping a young local boy and beating the boy’s mother after she came to our camp to plea for help.” In an effort to look the other way, the Army leadership wished to silently remove the SFC from the Army. But Martland’s act and the brutal criminality which prompted it had attracted the attention of Congressman Duncan Hunter and other Americans as well.
The American Center for Law and Justice led the way in keeping SFC Martland in the Army; their efforts forcing the Army to reverse its decision leading to this “significant victory." Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow stated “Justice has been served. The U.S. military has a moral obligation to stop child sexual abuse and exonerate SFC Martland for defending a child from rape. The Army finally took the corrective action needed and this is not only a victory for SFC Martland, but for the American people as well.”
A man of honor who loves and serves his country has been redeemed. God Speed SFC Charles Martland.
