Free Jack Wednesday Again

It is that time again. It saddens me when Wednesday comes and I have to write about Jack Idema and his men being held captive. I will be happy when the day comes that I do not have to write about the injustice being served upon them and can turn my efforts toward finding out who is responsible.

Imagine you or your family members working to keep terrorists from attacking us again. You get betrayed by people from agencies of your own government and though found not guilty of the trumped up charges, you are forced to remain in one of the harshest prisons in the world. This is a fate that should not happen to any American. Jack and his men will most likely spend Christmas in that prison. They will not be with their families because the FBI and the State Department have ensured they will not come home any time soon.

That is of course, unless the American public puts pressure on their elected representatives to intervene on the behalf of Jack and his guys so they can finally be freed. No one deserves to be treated this way. Look at the contact information below and reach out to as many of them as you can. When we stand united we can accomplish anything. American military forces do not leave anyone behind and I am committed to working this issue until we can get our guys back where they belong.

I do not care about the nay-sayers like Carol who thinks Jack is a scam artist. It does not matter. Those in the know and especially his SF buddies know that he is the genuine article and is being screwed to the wall. Get involved and let’s get them out of that prison.

Contact your representatives and ask them why Idema, Bennett and Caraballo are STILL being held at Pulacharke when they were all declared innocent by the Afghans since at least December of last year.

We should make it clear that we know what has gone on here and that it’s an outrage and all men from TF Sabre/7 should be released, exonerated, their names cleared. And we should be also pushing for a Congressional investigation as to who was involved, the how and the why. Nobody fighting in Afghanistan or Iraq should EVER have to worry about being hung out to dry like this by a government that is employing Stalinist tactics and turning its back on all the freedoms and rights that have been provided and guaranteed us by our founding documents and the blood of our forefathers, many of whom are laying at Arlington cemetery–as well as old standards which all men in uniform think they have as safeguards such as the Geneva Conventions. Are we to apply the Geneva Conventions to terrorists to whom these safeguards don’t apply and ignore them for our men in uniform for whom they were written???

If so, we’re setting ourselves up for FAILURE in this TERROR WAR.

Below is Cao’s information regarding this effort.
Why don’t you take the time to enlist and help us in the effort. Jack and his guys fought for us, now we need to fight for them.

This is the “Free Jack” campaign.

To join the campaign, email me and tell me you want to join the Free Jack Idema blogburst. You will be added to the blogroll and I’ll send you the html code to put up for that week in case you’re pressed for time and can’t put something together…or you can write your own.

We will be blogging on this every Wednesday until he and his team are released, and when they are, we’ll be blogging about a congressional hearing.

I will maintain an email list, and will email you the post of the week along with a picture (if there is one for that week) to host at your blog.

Join the fight. No American should ever have to worry about ending up in this predicament ever again. But first, we must make sure they get home safely and in one piece.

Fidelis ad urnam.

Cao.

  1. Free Jack Idema blogburst.

    It’s been over a year since they’ve been declared completely innocent by the Afghan appeals court, yet they’re still being held. The question is…why? If the Afghans admit that no torture occurred (which they did), that they entered the country leg…

  2. Jack Idema Update

    Another Wednesday is upon us, and again there is no word on the condition of Jack Idema. Are you busy getting all your Christmas presents together? Maybe you celebrate Hanukkah?
