Allen West Responds to Military Record Smear by Patrick Murphy – KNOW YOUR FACTS WATCH

“Today my opponent, behind in the polls and desperate, launched a false tv ad attempting to smear my military record. I stand by the actions I took to protect the lives of my men in Iraq in 2003. I did not face a court martial. I paid a small fine for breaking rules in an effort to save the lives of my soldiers. I have an honorable discharge certificate as a Lieutenant Colonel and I voluntarily submitted my retirement paperwork upon redeploying from Iraq…something that Patrick Murphy has never done. If put in that situation, it is obvious that Patrick Murphy would not risk his life or endanger his career for those he was entrusted to lead. What kind of man believes he can equate or somehow excuse his drunken brawling and a verbal assault on a police officer by attempting to smear a combat veteran who retired honorably after 22 years of service? Patrick Murphy”

  1. While we never served together and I don’t live in your state/District, I would support you, willingly, if you ran for POTUS!

  2. I live in Colorado, but I support Col West. What a great American hero. It’s to bad more politicians do not have this kind of integrity

  3. What an upstanding American, we need more people just like Colonel West in America and in congress and in the Presidency….If Mr.West ever decides to run for the Presidency (1. America would be better off) He has my vote…Thank you Colonel West for your service.

  4. Dear God, Please bless and protect Lt.Col Allen West! Lord, please expose the works of darkness and the lies of those who are attacking him. God, Please shine on him and show the beauty and dedication of his heart! Remind those around him of his value and determination to continue his service to this great nation… his record and life! In Jesus Name I pray! AMEN

    • I know that Col. West doesn’t need my personal thank you for standing up for Our Military and Our Country — I am so grateful we have men/women like West who have fought for this Country and remain loyal to her.

      It is unfortunate that it takes an insane amount of money to run for President. The amount seem to fit in the “Golden Rule” of finance. He who holds the most gold rules.

      We need strong, dedicated leaders who love our Country and Love and Respect the Military men/women who protect her. West IS one of those people.
