Blowhard Allen West Defeated in Florida
“Worst Member of Congress” Beaten in Close Race—
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor—
Allen West, the “rock star” of the Tea Party is gone or soon will be. To him, anyone who doesn’t agree with him is a communist. His behavior has been asinine, has brought shame on American soldiers and he, himself, has been an absolute embarassment.
West’s military career was brought to a close when he had a prisoner, later found to be innocent, tortured. West fired a pistol near the man’s head.
Soon thereafter, what West thought was a flood of valuable intelligence virtually flowed out of the poor dupe.
West had his men follow up on the information, all of which was made up.
West agreed to avoid a court martial and accepted an Article 15. His punishment was a $5000 fine and an end to his military career.
From the Daily Kos:
Expressing concern that his behavior could send the signal that abuse was acceptable as a means to an end, the Army relieved Colonel West of his command and contemplated court-martialing him on assault charges.
The military said that through his actions against the detainee, West “disobeyed laws, ignored orders … and mortgaged future discipline in his unit. Without discipline, there is no trust, no cohesion, and no higher purpose for which we fight.”But the military also stated, “while his crimes merit a court-martial, mitigating factors were considered, including the stressful environment … and Lieutenant Colonel West’s record as an officer and commander.” (Anyone think race was an issue in keeping West out of Leavenworth?)
In the video below, West talks about a nation going to war against a sick and twisted ideology. Nutcase, Pam Geller, identifies West as a hero. Based on his service record, torture, prisoner abuse, international law would call him a war criminal.
However, as it seems, the enemy is West and the sick and twisted ideology comes from his mouth:
