I cannot believe that the US Military released the name of the soldier who went on a rampage in Afghanistan! It is an outrage! Do they have any idea what they have done to this man and his family? What about his neighbors who were interviewed by reporters? Has anyone got any common sense left in this country?
This soldier has issues and yes he did what he did. The people he killed were probably innocent. However, along with the soldier’s name, they have also released information about another soldier in his unit being maimed the day before. There are also reports that he possibly had issues from a head injury. Still, the soldier was in a war zone (and that is what Afghanistan is).
As far as I am concerned, the soldier and his family are the true victims. They have had to deal with multiple deployments, stress and unbelievable dangers. In fact, ALL troops deployed in these areas see things beyond belief and the Federal Government, Lame stream media and whining liberals expect them to not crack under pressure. No, cracking under pressure is for whining winches like that Fluke woman and for blubbering special interest groups.
Now we have names out in the open, the family will have to move into hiding to keep radical muslims from finding them and murdering them. What about the neighbors who talked? They could become targets too. People do not understand islam nor do they have any idea what that religion is trying to do to the world.
An outrage, a scandal! They should have never released any names! The only soldier’s names we should see are those honored for bravery or those we lost and I hate to see any soldier lost. Whoever the official was at the defense department who released the name should be fired and sent to Leavenworth. But then again, this is typical of Obama’s administration. Refuse to release the papers everyone wants and open the door to the things that should be kept quiet.
