As I was sitting here listening to Col. West speak in Cali... A state that I love and call my second home...


The thought came to me, wouldn't it be ironic if it was OlameO that turned Cali back into a RED state after his four years of destruction??? :D

U.S. officer fined for harsh interrogation tactics
Saturday, December 13, 2003 Posted: 6:16 AM EST (1116 GMT) TIKRIT, Iraq (CNN) -- The commanding general of the 4th Infantry Division on Friday accepted a U.S. military investigator's recommendation and ordered administrative action against Lt. Col. Allen West, who was accused of using improper methods to force information out of an Iraqi detainee.

Following a military hearing, West was fined $5,000 over two months, according to West's civillian attorney, Neal Puckett. The punishment does not affect West's eligibility for retirement and pension, Puckett said in a statement.

West, 42, will be assigned to the rear detachment of the 4th Infantry Division awaiting the processing of his retirement request, the statement said.

Maj. Gen. Raymond Odierno, the 4th Infantry's top general in Tikrit, could have rejected the recommendation and ordered a court martial. If he were to be found guilty at a court martial of the two articles against him, West could have faced 11 years in prison, a military prosecutor told CNN.


The case stems from an incident August 20 at a military base in Taji, just north of Baghdad, when West was interrogating an Iraqi policeman, who was believed to have information about a plot to assassinate West with an ambush on a U.S. convoy.


In testimony at an Article 32 hearing -- the military's version of a grand jury or preliminary hearing -- West said the policeman, Yahya Jhrodi Hamoody, was not cooperating with interrogators, so he watched four of his soldiers from the 220th Field Artillery Battalion beat the detainee on the head and body.


West said he also threatened to kill Hamoody. Military prosecutors say West followed up on that threat by taking the suspect outside, put him on the ground near a weapons clearing barrel and fired his 9 mm pistol into the barrel.

So what is your point? I know people like this make your inferiority complex break out like a bad case of hives or rile up your crotch crickets but he is a hero to those who want to fight wars the way they need to be fought. Instead we have a bunch of limp wristed, panty waists who want to de-ball all the people who fight for the values that made this country what it was. West doesn't need to apoligize to anyone, especially to people like you.

Thank God for MEN like West.
Does Chuck Cock/ Homez/ DaMoose realize that the ONLY reason Bin Laden is dead is because of a method of interrogation that O and his sheep have made criminal???

That would be amazing. If that happened it would be a guarantee Win for us!!!
A guaranteed win for America.

As it is California is a political cancer to America that appears unrecoverable. 1986, Rod, the bridge dweller and other liberal/leftist/democrats can explain what's happened there.
