Never Surrender!

After 4 years…

To the supporters of Michael Behenna,

The government has received another extension of time to answer Michael’s Supreme Court petition and now their response is not due until the end of April.  We have seen glimmers of hope in our most recent efforts… such as the Supreme Court requesting the Government to answer Michael’s petition, a rare occasion with a military case; or the 37 Generals and Flag Officers signing an Amicus Brief which lent a great deal of credibility to Michael’s argument that a Soldier should not lose his right to defend himself in a war zone.

Literally thousands of you have stood by Michael and our family these past four years as we fought our way through the military justice system.  It has been a slow, painful, and frustrating process, but you have continued to provide us with strength and hope through your prayers, letters and emails.  As we near the point where the Supreme Court will make their epic decision as to whether they will hear Michael’s case, your prayers and encouragement for Michael are needed more than ever!!!

The legal battle has been costly in lost time, treasure, and disappointment, but your support has been endless.  Thank you so much for continuing to help fund Michael’s legal battle. The lawyers have done an excellent job in making their argument to the Supreme Court about why Michael’s case is so meaningful, but there are still other potential briefs to be written before the Supreme Court could find the necessity to overturn Michael’s conviction.

Clemency Denied

To the thousands of Michael Supporters,

God bless each of you.  We have been in this fight together for the past two years and your encouragement and support has been the driving force behind all we have been able to accomplish.  Last year, the Clemency Board gave Michael a reduction of 5 years off his 20 year sentence.  On December 2nd we again pleaded Michael's case before the Army Clemency Board.  We pointed out to them that Michael's sentence was 50% larger than the highest sentence given to any soldier convicted of unpremeditated murder in a combat zone.  We also addressed Michael's unblemished record in prison for the past two years, his many accomplishments while incarcerated, and his unblemished civilian record. We stressed that he was not a threat to anyone and offered many letters of reference including those from the Governor of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Attorney General, Law Enforcement Agency Heads, and all of the supporters who took the time to write letters of support for Michael.  In addition, the entire Oklahoma Congressional Delegation offered their support for Michael’s clemency. We also had three letters of immediate employment for Michael upon his release.  After our arguments to the Clemency Board, the Board had no additional uncompleted factors for Michael, and the Chairman of the Clemency Board stated that Michael had “turned the corner.”  Unfortunately, on December 22nd, Michael was notified that all of our efforts fell on deaf ears and he was denied even ONE day of clemency by the Clemency Board and the Secretary of the Army John McHugh.  We have no idea why they denied Michael’s clemency request and can only surmise that the Secretary of the Army desires Michael to spend a substantial amount of time in prison.

Michael's Appeal Hearing before the Army Appeal Court took place on December 9th in Washington, DC and was well attended by Michael's family and a courtroom full of supporters who drove many hours to attend the hearing.  In the Appeal’s Hearing the Army seemed to be taking a new position on the facts of the case.  During Michael's trial in February 2009 the crux of the entire case revolved around whether Ali Mansur was sitting and executed or standing and reaching for Michael’s gun.  The Army prosecutor’s theory was that Michael executed Mansur while Mansur sat on a rock in a culvert.  Michael's testimony was that he was questioning Mansur in the culvert when Mansur stood up and lunged for his weapon.  The Army prosecutors claimed Michael's testimony was "impossible" and "self-serving" despite all the forensic evidence supporting Michael's version (including their own expert witness who they sent home rather than have testify.)  During the appeal’s hearing the Army seemed to back away from its original theory stating that even if Mansur was standing and reaching for Michael’s weapon Michael would still be guilty of murder because he lost his right to defend himself by pointing a loaded gun at Mansur.   Telling a soldier that they lost their right to defend themselves in a war zone….against a known terrorist… is just plain crazy talk by people who have never been in harm’s way.  It reinforces the point made by a newly elected Congressman who said that soldiers have to watch their back against JAG officers even more than an enemy that is trying to kill them.  But the most disappointing thing we learned at the hearing was that a decision on Michael’s appeal could take as long as 15 months.

I promise you as we have promised Michael:  we will never cease fighting for Michael’s freedom no matter how high or how hard the climb.  When we spoke to Michael this week he wanted us to wish each of you a blessed Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year; and to let you know his spirit is as strong as ever because of all YOUR support - for that, we Thank You!

We appreciate the many letters to Michael inspiring him to fight through this ordeal.  We encourage you to continue to write to him with your kind words of support (his prison address can be found on the website defendmichael.com.)  Also please continue to write to your Congressmen and Senators to ensure that they are aware of your feelings about our government treating its enemies better than we treat our bravest heroes.

Here are some articles by two writers who attended the Appellate Hearing:

Motorcycle Rally to Leavenworth

From Cyber Pastor

To all Michael Behenna supporters,

Today (yesterday)  is Michael’s 27th birthday.  While he won’t be ‘celebrating’ it in any real sense (no cake and candles in prison), his spirits have been incredibly lifted by the hundreds and hundreds of cards of letters he’s received in the just the past week alone.  He is overwhelmed by your support and personally wanted us to tell you how much it means to him.

As mentioned in the last newsletter, we are still eagerly awaiting the Military response to Michael’s appeal, which will allow Michael’s appeal to be docketed and hopefully, by this summer, be argued before the Army Court of Appeals.  In the meantime, we continue to encourage Michael’s supporters to contact their Senators and Congressmen.  These Congressional Delegations will be vital to ensure the Army handles Michael’s case properly moving forward.  Your assistance thus far has produced many important connections and unleashed scrutiny of Michael’s case we would not have thought possible.

It is estimated that more American soldiers have been charged with war crimes related to the war in Iraq than in previous wars combined!  Many believe that this is the result of the current Washington policy to prosecute members of the military for a political purpose—pandering to the Iraqi government.  In an effort to build awareness to this perversion, we are considering organizing a motorcycle/vehicle Rally to Ft. Leavenworth in early fall, 2010.  Michael is among ten decorated soldiers (coined the Leavenworth 10) in Leavenworth prison who have been wrongfully charged and convicted for murdering Al-Qaeda or insurgents. Their convictions are not publicized, but we have come to know each of their stories and they all answered the call of their country to defend our values and way of life against an enemy who wishes to destroy us.  After defending themselves or their fellow soldiers/Marines in a combat zone, they have fallen victim to untenable Rules of Engagement, demoralizing “Catch and Release” policies, and political correctness that left them abandoned by the country they fought for.

Many of Michael’s supporters have contacted us for additional ways to help. This rally will aid Michael and the other Leavenworth 10 in creating awareness for those who have not heard their stories. We envision this Rally to begin in at least the following 12 states; Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Colorado, Minnesota, Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, and Tennessee, and culminate in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas.  Due to the significance of 9/11 to these soldiers call to duty, we are considering holding the event the weekend before, on Labor Day 9/4/2010.   Before we finalize our plans, we would like to know if you would assist in the following areas:

Help put together the event in Leavenworth

Help coordinate a state leg of this journey to Leavenworth

Design and maintenance of a web site

Help sponsor the event (not necessary to attend)

Graphic Design (t-shirts, signs, flyers)

Most importantly - make the ride to Leavenworth (motorcycles and vehicles would be welcome)

Please reply about your interests and we will build a database of who can help us on this event.  We are also very interested in your thoughts and ideas about this event!  The size of this event is dependent upon those involved and our ability to attract other concerned Patriots. This rally is a way to show these soldiers that we appreciate their unselfish service to our country and they are not forgotten. Please consider being a part of the show of support these men never received from our country when they returned home from war.

The proud parents of an American hero.  Happy Birthday Michael!!!

A Cause Worth Fighting For

To the thousands of Michael Behenna supporters,

One year ago today closing arguments were made by the Army prosecutors determined to get a conviction even if that meant withholding evidence and lying to the jury.  Captain Jason Elbert told the jury that what Michael Behenna testified to regarding the shooting of Ali Mansur was ‘impossible’.  Yet all three prosecutors (Captains Poirier, Roberts, and Elbert) knew better.  Their own expert witness, Dr. Herb MacDonell, had told them earlier in the week that the only logical explanation based on the evidence was that Mansur had to be reaching for Michael's gun when he was shot.   Because their expert’s testimony did not help their case the prosecution team sent him home rather than put him on the stand to testify.  They were not going to let the facts get in the way of a guilty verdict.

So it was that one year ago at around 8:30pm on a Friday night a jury of non-infantry officers convicted Michael of unpremeditated murder and the following day sentenced him to 25 years in prison.  This for killing in self defense a known member of Al Qaeda that Army intelligence knew had organized an attack on Michael’s platoon that took the lives of two American soldiers and two Iraqi soldiers.  For those of us sitting in that Kentucky courtroom the moment when the verdict was read is forever seared into our soulsFor Michael it was absolute betrayal by a country he (unlike the prosecutors) had risked his life to defend.

As we told you last month, Michael’s clemency board hearing resulted in a five year reduction in his sentence on top of the five year reduction granted by the General of the 101st Airborne.  So Michael is now serving a 15 year sentence at Fort Leavenworth and if he serves his full sentence he will rejoin the real world when he is 40 years of age.  Short of the Secretary of the Army intervening, the next phase in getting justice for Michael is the Appellate process.  Michael’s appellate brief was filed on December 22, 2009 and the military response was due on January 22, 2010. The Army did not produce a response on their due date, but instead asked and was granted a three month extension, which makes their new due date April 21, 2010.  Coincidentally that happens to be the anniversary date that Michael’s soldiers Adam Kohlhaas and Steven Christofferson were killed by Mansur and his Al Qaeda cell.

Michael began his incarceration on March 20, 2009.  One of the last things he said to us that day as he was being taken away in handcuffs was ‘Don’t let me be forgotten.’  I can proudly say that YOU HAVE NOT LET MICHAEL BE FORGOTTEN!!!  It is your cards and letters that gives him purpose each day in prison.  The highlight of Michael’s week is when the guard drops off mail to his cell.  On one recent day he received 175 pieces of mail.  From nearly every state in our great country and from places as far away as Australia he has received cards and letters of support that has lifted his spirits and helped Michael and our family endure something that no American family or soldier should ever face – being prosecuted for defending yourself against the most vicious terrorist group in the world.

Our fight for justice is a marathon, not a sprint.  Like Michael, we all have to be prepared for a long fight. But in the end it is a fight we will win and see the day when Michael is free once more.  In this next month please raise awareness about Michael’s case and continue to write your Congressmen, Senators, the Secretary of the Army, and the Secretary of Defense to call for Michael’s immediate release pending the appellate decision.  And most importantly, please drop Michael another letter or card that reminds him that he has not been forgotten.

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Army's Clemency and Parole Board has reduced the sentence of an Edmond soldier convicted of murdering an Iraqi detainee, according to Rep. Mary Fallin's office.  

First Lt. Michael Behenna was charged with killing an Iraqi detainee in September 2008. The Army's Clemency and Parole Board decided to reduce the sentence by five years for the second time.

The latest reduction brings the original 25-year-sentence down to 15 years.

Earlier this month Vicki Behenna and several family members made a trip to Washington D.C. to speak on her son's behalf at a hearing before the board.

In May 2009 Behenna's mother, Vicki Behenna said prosecutors withheld key evidence in the trial and asked the state's congressional delegation to investigate her son's case. The Behennas filed an appeal in December 2009.

First Lt. Michael Behenna is currently serving his sentence at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
