Why no pardon for heroic border agents?

Yesterday, Bush issued 19 pardons and commuted the sentence of a convicted crystal methamphetamine dealer.  But two US Border Patrol agents who shot an illegal alien in the act of smuggling 750 pounds of marijuana across the border still sit behind bars.

Earlier this month, Border Patrol agents were under fire by more dealers smuggling drugs into our country, but did not return fire.  The case of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean has immobilized those whose task is to secure our southern border.

The President has received requests to commute the sentences of these two heroic agents from Senators on both sides of the aisle.  An appeals court judge has publicly stated the judge and prosecutor in the case may have overreacted.  Still, Bush would rather commute the sentence of a convicted crystal meth dealer than these two who shot a drug smuggler in the act of penetrating our border with illegal drugs.

I guess the crystal meth dealer will have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, but Ramos and Compean will continue to rot in jail for defending our country’s border, protecting our children from the poison imported on our southern border.

If you can’t understand how Bush can let this travesty continue, contact the White House and ask for justice for these two American heroes.

Maybe then our Border Control agents won’t feel intimidated by our own government and will once again be able to defend themselves against the forces arrayed against them along the Rio Grande.

Troops in Iraq find Christmas in memories

By CHELSEA J. CARTER, Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD – Army Sgt. Robin Cameron stood guard outside a once opulent Iraqi shopping mall that now serves as a small U.S. military outpost, trying not to think about what he was missing with his family on Christmas.

“It’s just another day in Iraq,” he said, waving through a convoy of armored vehicles heading out to patrol Baghdad’s Mansour neighborhood, once home to Saddam Hussein‘s favored officers and later an insurgent stronghold known for its deadly attacks on American troops.
