Four years ago, I made a commitment to myself. I told myself that if some kid could strap on body armor and leave his family and friends to dodge death in some God-forsaken desert foxhole, then the least we could do here at home was stand up, “question with boldness” and engage! I never imagined at the time that these brave men and women had more to fear from the political brass at home than a ruthless and relentless foreign enemy combatant…but they do!
I’ve learned to live with corrupt politicians because we’ve been here before. I’ve learned to accept ideologues as Presidents because we have suffered them before. I’ve even learned to tolerate bad wars because I’ve never known a good one! But I cannot and will not live with, accept or tolerate the betrayal of our men and women in uniform by their own government in pursuit of clandestine madness well beyond the borders of its constitutional scope and limits!
Sgt. Derrick Miller chose to leave his beautiful wife and daughters to serve his country in Afghanistan. He did what he was trained to do in questioning a suspicious Afghan national who penetrated inside their defense perimeter. The suspect allegedly made a move for Sgt. Miller’s weapon and Sgt. Miller shot him. Sgt. Miller is now serving a LIFE SENTENCE in Fort LeavenworthKansas for “premeditated murder”…premeditated murder? There are conflicting opinions, accounts and changed testimonies surrounding Derrick’s case http://derrickmiller.org/ But, whatever benefits Derrick was entitled to, benefit of doubt is clearly not one of them!
13 of our children were massacred by Radical Islam at Ft. Hood and our government called it “workplace violence”! 22 members of Seal Team 6 were shot down by Radical Islam in one incident because this same government denied them their request to return fire! Our Ambassador and 3 servicemen were butchered in Benghazi by Radical Islam and this same government attempted to cover it up and lies about it to this day! And now they would have me accept that Sgt. Derrick Miller is guilty for having killed one of them? Not on my watch pal!
Some of you may recall that Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann took quite a bit of heat this past summer for questioning the level of access into our own government by the Muslim Brotherhood…the same Muslim Brotherhood that appears numerous times on the White House guest list…and the very same Muslim Brotherhood that has seized power in Cairo and fans flames of hatred towards Israel and the United States!
The Muslim Brotherhood is Radical Islam! Period! They are the sworn enemy of America and every other bastion of liberty and freedom in the world. They do NOT belong on the red carpet in Washington. They belong in the crosshairs of Sgt Miller’s weapon! And Sgt. Miller belongs home with his wife and daughters. Reuniting Sgt. Miller with his family has become my mission, and I am passionately urging you to make it yours as well! Here is the site of a great organization devoted to helping us win Derrick’s freedom, United American Patriots http://unitedpatriots.org/about/
You can also write our Secretary of Defense to make your own personal appeal for clemency on Derrick’s behalf;
Leon E. Panetta, Secretary of Defense

Please…I cannot imagine a greater cause than this.
God Bless You!
