This corrects a grave injustice. But it won’t be over until they clear his name.
On March 20th, 2009, Army Ranger 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing Ali Mansur, a known Al Qaeda operative, while serving in Iraq. During an interrogation, Mansur attacked Lt. Behenna, who killed the jihadist in self-defense. The government subsequently prosecuted Lt. Behenna for premeditated murder. Unconscionable.
