G-d bless Lieutenant Colonel

We need more politicians of his calibre.

What a man for telling it how it is.!!

A family man, a man who served in the Army in Iraq and was a civilian adviser in Afghanistan.

Certainly he’s a man of high ideals. He was accused of trying to obtain extra information from a prisoner in Iraq, by firing a bullet passed his head.

 

He retired from the army after being accused.

At his hearing, West had been asked by his defense attorney if he would fire his pistol again under similar circumstances. He replied: "If it's about the lives of my men and their safety, I'd go through hell with a gasoline can," he said, West pointed out that there were no further ambushes against American forces in Taji until he was relieved of his leadership post on October 4." After West's forced retirement was made public, he received more than two thousand letters and e-mails offering him moral support. Furthermore, a letter supporting West was signed by ninety-five members of Congress and sent to the Secretary of the Army.

In September 2010, West spoke in defense of a group of US military personnel known as the "Leavenworth 10" who were convicted of war crimes. (source)

It says much for the man, that he was elected with a huge majority, in a very pro-Democratic State, where Obama achieved one of his highest vote counts.
