Afghanistan Today, your portal to the United States’ growing nightmare abroad.

Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 5-28-13-Tue.

Back to work for most Americans today, after a three day weekend. I was greeted when I got home, by a print issue of Marine Corps Times in the mail, with more story of corruption in a cover story, which I will link at #1, with the title, “Politics, privilege and promotion,” the story behind the promotion of Lt. Col. Conway, son of retired Marine Commandant Conway, who was promoted after being on hold for his involvement as an officer leading the Marines in the sniper unit who I believe were suffering from battle fatigue and combat stress and urinated on dead enemy fighters. I believe the snipers should be treated for combat stress and battle fatigue and not sent to court martial. Contact your elected officials on that, and read the story at link #1 and contact your elected officials on this “politics, privilege and promotion.” I believe Lt. Col. Conway should be removed from his command in Hawaii and sent to Sangin, Afghanistan, and that a Marine Court of Inquiry needs convened immediately, and he can testify by video from Sangin. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Marine Corps Times cover story, “Politics, privilege and promotion” in the Marine Corps:

2.) Why is Bati Kot, Afghanistan not yet pacified? In 2007 Marine Special Ops were there and thrown out of Afghanistan at the request of the Army, which turned out to be a big mistake because the Marines at a subsequent Marine Court of Inquiry were found to have acted appropriately in a complex ambush. The Army officers who made this error, have yet to be punished after their error, but instead have been promoted. See the link at #1 for more details on another promotion controversy. Link:
