It's par for the course with President Bush pardons. Once again he has ignored wrongly convicted Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean in favor of true criminals who have smuggled drugs and embezzled money.
President Bush is coming under fire for presidential pardons yesterday that included forgiveness for drug smugglers, an embezzler and others, but not for jailed Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.
Ramos and Compean entered prison in January 2007 after a controversial ruling on their actions in apprehending a fleeing drug smuggler.
"I believe the president's stolid refusal to pardon Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean is the most unconscionable act of disloyalty he has perpetrated upon those sworn to protect our well-being. I know this feeling is shared by many other patriotic Americans," said Mychal Massie, chairman of Project 21 and a WND columnist. "This sends a disturbing signal to the men and women who protect our borders, not to mention how it must affect the morale of those serving overseas."
Is there really any surprise in Bush's pardons? Scooter Libby....
Tipped by: Illegal Protest who has more to say than I.
Is anyone really surprised that Dopey didn't pardon Ramos and Compean?!? HE is the one who arranged for their prosecution! He's a TRAITOR and it makes me sick that I voted for that moron idiot. He has to be the worst president ever, after Jimmy Carter! As much as I detest McCain, I encourage everyone to vote for him because if Hillary or Barack gets in, we're all completely screwed!
