Obama Has Lost The Public Trust

When people read something like what Donald Sensing wrote and believe it is true….:

In announcing the pending charges against Schuringa the Justice Department spokesman said that after being treated for his burns, Abdulmutallab told a federal agent that Schuringa had slugged him in the mouth. Abdulmutallab pointed to his swollen lip as evidence of the assault.

“It’s now well established in anti-terrorism operations that you cannot just go around slugging murderous terrorists in the mouth,” said the spokesman. “What’s fair for Navy SEALs will be fair for Mr. Schuringa. The law is the law.” He added that Attorney General Eric Holder had approved charging Mr. Schuringa with assault.

The spokesman’s reference was to the pending court-martial of three Navy SEALs facing assault charges related to their capture of Ahmed Hashim Abed, the terrorist who planned the March 2004 ambush, killing and mutilation of four American contractors in Fallujah, Iraq. The contractors’ burned bodies were then hanged from a bridge in the city. After being captured by the SEALs last month, Abed claimed that his fat lip was caused by one of the SEALs punching him in the mouth. Military officials arraigned the three SEALs earlier this month on multiple charges, including assault.

…the public trust is gone.
