Tonight on Andrea Shea King -
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.
Here’s the backstory-
Army intelligence ordered the release of Mansur and Lt. Behenna was ordered to return the terrorist to his home.
During the return of Mansur, Lt. Behenna again questioned the Al Qaeda member for information about other members of the terrorist cell, and financial supporters. During this interrogation, Mansur attacked Lt. Behenna, who killed the terrorist in self-defense. The government subsequently prosecuted Lt. Behenna for premeditated murder and found him guilty. Lt. Behenna is presently serving a reduced sentence of 15 years behind bars in Leavenworth Prison. Many say this was a grave injustice on Lt. Behenna, based on political coverup and withheld evidence that would have exonerated the young soldier.
