Ben Kinchlow on the Priorities of the President

Ben Kinchlow on the Separation of Church and State

She is the wife of an American citizen and was eight months pregnant when she was arrested in Sudan. The Sudanese government said, under its version of Islamic law, “Meriam Yehya Ibrahim has to die” for confessing her Christian faith. She has subsequently given birth – but not her freedom.

More than one million people have petitioned for her release. The Sudanese government said, “While reaffirming the commitment of the Government of Sudan to all human rights and freedom of beliefs, the Embassy of Sudan in Washington, D.C., would like to thank all those who have raised their concern and sympathy on this issue.”

Saeed Abedini, a 33-year-old American citizen from Idaho, has been beaten savagely, tortured by other inmates, as well as guards, and endured long stints in solitary confinement, all while being denied medical attention – in Iran. He has endured all this in just the first year of an eight-year sentence for daring to proclaim himself a Christian. Pastor Saeed said, “[L]et us resurrect our Dead faiths to living faiths by first dying to our selfish ‘resurrected’ self and experiencing the cross of Jesus. Then we are able to experience the Glorious resurrection with Christ. A Glorious life with Christ starts only after a painful death (to self) with Christ. … Pastor Saeed Abedini, prisoner in the Darkness in Iran, but free for the Kingdom and Light.”

On March 31, 2014, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who accidentally made a wrong turn and ended up crossing the border into Mexico, was arrested when he attempted to return to the United States because he had firearms (which were legally registered in the U.S.) in his possession. This is a veteran who honorably served his country and was seeking help from the Department of Veterans Affairs’ medical facilities for PTSD – the purpose of his trip. His fate will now be determined by the Mexican legal system.

The president of the United States (well, his administration, which gives the Mexican government more than $300 million annually) said it “… respects the sovereignty of the Mexican legal system and will not ‘meddle’ in their affairs. … the U.S. respects Mexico’s immigration laws … the fact is, Sergeant Tahmooressi broke their law … that is unfortunate, but he did. When you are in another country, and you break the law, you have to face the consequences of their legal system … actions, even accidental actions, can have serious consequences.” (This from an administration that recently released tens of thousands of illegal Mexican immigrants who were being held on serious criminal charges.)

U.S. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl reportedly walked off his base in Afghanistan, according to reports from his on-location military unit members (both active soldiers and veterans), and “is a deserter, who needs to face a military trial under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.”

It is reported that, according to secret documents obtained by Fox News, Bergdahl, at one point during his captivity, converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a “mujahid” (warrior for Islam). Reports, rich in on-the-ground detail, indicate that his relationships with his captors went from periods of hostility to becoming much more of an accepted fellow, saying “Salaam” repeatedly, laughing frequently, playing soccer with the Haqqani, participating in AK-47 target practice and even reportedly was allowed to carry a gun at times, according to Fox News.

One member of his platoon told CNN, “Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war, and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.”

Senior military officials had advised President Obama not to make the Taliban-for-Bergdahl trade, likening it to “handing over five four-star generals of the Taliban.”
