A war hero who had the courage to blow the whistle on Obama’s negotiations for the release of Bowe Bergdahl revealed to congress on Thursday that he is now facing a court martial for what he did.
According to Conservative Tribune, Lt. Col. Jason Amerine previously testified before congress that he had worked a deal in which one Taliban warlord was to be traded for six hostages, one of whom was Bergdahl. Amerine revealed that despite his Pentagon office “working every initiative possible,” the Obama administration insisted on what eventually became the Bergdahl deal, which released five terrorists from Guantanamo for one deserter.
“We made a lot of progress on it,” Amerine, a former Green Beret, said before the committee. “But in the end, when the Taliban came to the table, the State Department basically said it must be the 5 for 1 and that was the only viable option we have.”
Amerine testified before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee that when he approached Rep. Duncan Hunter to blow the whistle on what Obama had done, the Army immediately turned on him in a despicable way.
Even though Amerine had previously been named a war hero, he was stripped of his security clearance and removed from his job. A criminal investigation was launched and his retirement orders were cancelled. On top of that, his pay was suspended for a time.
Amerine’s troubles are far from over: he says he is now facing a court martial for simply exercising his constitutional right to become a whistle-blower.
It’s sickening that Obama is trying to ruin the life of a celebrated veteran, just because he was trying to expose the truth about our president.
