Marine who urinated on Taliban has conviction tossed thanks to generalís meddling
NY Post ^ | November 9, 2017 | Chris Perez

A former US Marine who was caught urinating on the corpses of dead Taliban fighters got his conviction thrown out this week thanks to the unlawful actions of a retired general — who “severely and systematically” interfered with the case, a report says.

Staff Sgt. Joseph W. Chamblin had been reduced in rank for the infamous 2011 incident, sentenced to 30 days confinement and ordered to pay a $500 fine after he pleaded guilty to wrongful desecration, failure to properly supervise junior Marines, and posing for photographs with battlefield casualties.

What he didn’t know at the time was that the Commandment of the Marine Corps, Gen. James F. Amos, was on an illegal crusade to “crush” Chamblin and others who participated in the sick stunt, according to The Washington Post.

Because of his alleged meddling, the ex-scout sniper got all of his charges dropped on Wednesday and his previous ruling overturned by the Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals.

The panel’s decision came roughly five years after Chamblin’s initial trial for the July 2011 incident, in which he and several other Marines killed a trio of Taliban fighters and then urinated on their bodies while posing for pictures and video. The footage surfaced on YouTube in January 2012, sparking international outrage.

Chamblin later said that he didn’t felt sorry about what he did — claiming he would do it again if he had the chance.

“[If] anything, it was more of a psychological effect on the enemy because if an infidel touches the body, they’re not going to Mecca or paradise,” he told reporters at the time. “So, now these insurgents see what happens when you mess with us.”

A Marine did something stupid, got caught and they want to crucify him over it. A Marine General did something stupid, got caught and retires with honors and nothing more than a footnote in a legal decision when the conviction gets tossed. That's American justice for you.

Different spanks for different ranks.

A vast majority of Generals believe they are omnipotent. A four year tour at the Pentagon will leave a person shaking their heads and wondering if being in uniform is worth it.

The evil bastard he pissed on was trying to kill him a few minutes earlier. What the hell is the problem?

I guess putting a 5.56 into his evil body is good but pissing on him is bad?

Both are good! They are warriors, not meals on wheels. It is not the Red Cross, it is not anything except the US Army killing bad guys. Piss on them if you want to.

We have 210 Admirals in the US Navy... and 430 total ships.

I always knew Amos was a dick .... Not qualified to clean the boots of Jim Conway , whom he replaced . Thanks to Barack Hussein Obama . Obama’s pick , Amos was a disaster for the Corps . Many Marines told me they couldn’t stand him being their Commandant . Now this comes out . If Amos is a member of MOAA they should throw his sorry ass OUT .
Conway , now THERE was a Marine !

Correction:

It was the Sainted Untied States Marine Corp that pissed on him. I would hope the US Army would do the same.

What this proud, brave, and patriotic young Marine did is totally fine by me.

Well it’s for the sake of honoring God (the real one not the phoney Allah) that I’d forego it. These chumps have to answer to Him. Not me.

What Staff Sgt. Joseph W. Chamblin and the others did was a most auspicious moment, telling the Taliban, the dead enemy was not going to 'paradise' and whatever else might be waiting for them.....it was a message, delivered in a bad light perhaps but the message was delivered...those Marines were there...we weren't.

Gen. James F. Amos could be accused of being Politically Correct; a closed mind is dangerous General.

"A Marine did something stupid..."

The only stupid thing I see here is the moronic statement you made...

Semper Fi to Chamblin & his buddies!

POY, oshka!

So, railroading someone into a conviction is wrong? Gosh, I'd never known that before. International outrage can kiss my ass, btw. Thanks Oshkalaboomboom.

“...Gen. James F. Amos could be accused of being Politically Correct...”
**********************************
The only thing I’d accuse Amos of is pissing on his marines; just as I’d accuse the Obama general Air Force Academy Superintendent of pissing on his Cadets. Both are unworthy of their charges.

In this case of dead Taliban, it was not “better to be pissed off than pissed on” for them. It was the Marines who were pissed of. They killed the SOBs and then pissed on them.

That has a nice ring to it.

Let’s try: “Never piss off a Marine or you’ll be the one pissed on”.
