#FBI Throws Decorated Green Beret Officer & Hostage Families Under The Bus

Posted: June 13, 2015 in Politics

Decorated Green Beret Officer (Bronze Star with Valor and Purple Heart) LTC Jason Amerine testified on Capitol Hill Thursday that the Army revoked his security clearance, escorted him from the Pentagon, and launched a five-month, ongoing criminal investigation in response to his efforts to inform Congress about what he sees as problems with the government’s hostage recovery process.

LTC Amerine went to congressman Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif. to disclose his concerns about the way hostage negotiations were unfolding last year. The FBI learning of Amerine’s discussions with congressman Hunter filed a criminal complaint against LTC Amerine. Then the FBI called the hostage families and threatened them about speaking out as well.
