While you're sitting there doing a whole lot of nothing, maybe you could do something and read this blog. It's titled Defend Michael (click on link) and it's about an Army Ranger, 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna and how he was sentenced to 25 years in prison for "unpremeditated murder" of an Al Qaeda operative in Iraq.
This trial has been a sham from start to finish. Read the story, and when you pick your jaw up off the floor you can contact your Congressman. This is really important. This guy is a hero serving his country, attempting to do the job that the intel folks would NOT do, and when he defends himself, he's accused of premeditated murder. Not only that, but the prosecution's STAR EXPERT WITNESS did his own investigation and showed that the story Michael told investigators was in fact, the way it happened. Instead of putting their expert witness on the stand, instead of giving this information to the defense, the prosecution simply packed his bags and sent him home. Not until after the guilty verdict was in was the defense notified that there even WAS an expert, not to mention he agreed with Michael's story.
While Major Nidal Malik Hassan, an American Muslim terrorist who murdered scores of innocent people, is made as comfortable as possible in a hospital, Lt. Michael Behenna, an American hero, rots in a dark cell in Fort Leavenworth.
