Obama’s Pentagon Destroys Green Beret Because of What He Did To Protect Boy From Rape
President Barack Hussein Obama’s Pentagon has opted to kick decorated Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland out of the Army because he dared to shove an Afghan rapist to the ground.
The incident occurred in Sept. 2011 after a young 12-year-old Afghan boy told Martland that he had been raped by a commander named Abdul Rahman, who our government had reportedly trained, armed and paid.
When Martland later found out that Rahman had beaten the boy’s mother in retaliation for what he did, the Green Beret decided that enough was enough.
With his friend Daniel Quinn by his side, Martland approached Rahman and confronted him.
“He confessed to the crime and laughed about it, and said it wasn’t a big deal,” Quinn told reporters. “Even when we patiently explained how serious the charge was, he kept laughing.”
This callous behavior inspired Quinn and Martland to do what any other sane person would have done — shove Rahman to the ground to get their point across.
“As a man, as a father of a young boy myself at the time, I felt obliged to step in to prevent further repeat occurrences,” Quinn explained.
When Rahman then complained about this incident to another Army unit, the Pentagon transferred Quinn and Martland out of the province, assigned them to temp positions and then later sent them home to America.
Quinn decided to leave the Army altogether, but Martland has instead been fighting against the Pentagon’s push to have him involuntarily discharged on Nov. 1.
“It’s sad to think that a child rapist is put above one of our elite military operators,” Rep. Duncan Hunter said in defense of Martland on Fox News. “Sgt. Martland was left with no other choice but to intervene in a bad situation. The Army should stand up for what’s right and should not side with a corrupt Afghan police officer.”
We wish we found this surprising, but after almost seven years, pretty much nothing the Obama administration does surprises us anymore.
