Jussi Jalonen: I’m a historian,
Blogging over at the Finnish website UusiSuomi, an online news magazine, Finnish blogger, Jussi Jalonen, has taken notice of two retired US military men who have become political candidates for US Congress, Ret. 2nd Lt. Ilario Pantano and Ret. Ltc. Allen West.
In “campaign for criminals“, Jalonen takes to smearing both retired officers who are running for elected office as war criminals, a dubious claim, since one (Ilario Patano) was totally exonerated in a military court tribunal that he himself expedited to prove his innocence, and the other, (Allen West) though admitting wrong doing, stated in court that he would do it again (fire a pistol into a barrel) in order to protect his troops.
“Hamoodi cracked and gave information about the planned ambush on West’s convoy, thwarting the attack.” West said there were no further ambushes on U.S. forces in Taji until he was relieved of his leadership post on October 4″
