Army Sgt Derrick Miller, a US war hero, has been sitting in a prison cell at Ft. Leavenworth where he has been serving a life sentence for killing a terrorist. The bad news is that he never should have been there in the first place.
It’s time to weed out the military of snowflake officers, like the ones who sent Miller away. There were only two witnesses of the shooting and one of them had initially testified on Miller’s behalf – but then changed his story when the military prosecutors threatened to charge him with being an accessory to murder.
The second witness was offered permanent legal status in the United States if he would testify against Miller – so he did.
Sgt. Miller shot and killed an Afghan civilian following the civilian attempting to grab Sgt. Miller’s weapon during a period of intense questioning. The Afghan civilian was a suspected insurgent that was walking through Sgt. Miller’s “platoon defensive perimeter observing their defensive positions”.
Following the shooting, Sgt. Miller’s unit was attacked horrifically on all sides and the Afghan National Army fighters that were assigned to stay with the platoon disappeared prior to the onset of the firefight. They hid behind a building.
Sgt. Miller was embroiled in a firefight the night he killed the Afghan man. The Afghan man was an insurgent and yet no one in the military wants to say this and directly confront the duplicitous Afghanis. The firefight was not instigated by American soldiers; the firefight was meant to kill American soldiers, and Afghan National Army fighters were nowhere to be found.
On Wednesday news broke that Sgt. Derrick Miller will be released from Leavenworth.
This is wonderful news for all the patriots who worked to free this American hero.
Here’s a brief video about the circumstances surrounding the event:
