NEW YORK In his first interview, and providing key details, Wilburn Russell, father of Sgt. John M. Russell, accused of killing five fellow soldiers in Iraq yesterday, revealed to a local North Texas TV reporter today that his son’s job in Iraq was an electronic technician who, among other things, used robots to detonate roadside bombs.

“He thought he was saving lives, thought he was doing some good,” John Russell said, in a raw, unedited video.

PETITION TO SAVE SGT. RUSSEL
Hospitals, Not Prison for Sick Soldiers & Vets!
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/Save-Sgt-Russel

Sgt. Russel is a 44-year-old Texan who has many years in the U.S. Army.  He suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  When his superiors noticed his deteriorating mental health, Sgt. Russel was ordered into therapy for stress.  The sick soldier suffered a psychotic episode while at Camp Liberty's stress clinic in Baghdad and left under armed guard. Sgt. Russel allegedly overpowered a guard during the drive away from the clinic, took a weapon, then returned into the clinic and killed five men.

Update 6/3/09 - Some people may wonder how Sgt. Russel's family feel about former Vice President Dick Cheney's June 1 interview with FOX News wherein he stated there was no evidence linking Iraq to America's 9/11 attack.  Many soldiers enlisted and others re-enlisted believing that Iraq was behind the terrorist attacks (see the VIDEO at the link below).

Old news from July 2008:

It came to my attention today that many people who follow this thread may not have been able to access my July NowPublic.com article regarding a planned military execution - the first one in over 50 years was approved by former President George Bush.  Even though this is old news, the article has statistical info on capital punishment and useful links to access more data.  I will have to be more careful to ensure that when I post news, the correct URL is cited.  The link is below:

I feel Care2 members should KNOW about the "work from home" ads, RECRUITING "MULES" TO CARRY OUT ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. Just like the Drug Cartels do... A person who was recruited unwittingly by one of these ads, was given in a seattleweekly.com article ...
