Bad enough our Little Barry Hussein pulled the rug out from under their victory. Now his Pentagon is demanding that California’s Iraq veterans repay enlistment bonuses paid to them.
“These bonuses were used to keep people in,” said Christopher Van Meter, a 42-year-old former Army captain and Iraq veteran from Manteca, Calif., who says he refinanced his home mortgage to repay $25,000 in reenlistment bonuses and $21,000 in student loan repayments that the Army says he should not have received. “People like me just got screwed.”
Rules are for the little people, as usual, while Felonia and the rest of the Ruling Class skate. We can be sure this will go a long way to keeping up the confidence of the volunteer military.
UPDATE: Just in time for the election, Pentagon is “suspending” demand for the money. No word whether it will be permanent or whether those who already paid will get a refund.
