Harvey Keitel backs Green Beret punished for confronting accused Afghan child rapist

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/04/18/harvey-keitel-backs-green-beret-punished-for-confronting-accused-afghan-child-rapist.html


“When I was a young Marine I understood we were present in order to help others who did not have the wherewithal to protect themselves,” Keitel wrote, in an email to Hunter chief of staff Joe Kasper. “Whomever owns the idea that decided to reprimand these two men instead of giving them a medal for their actions should be asked what the hell they would’ve done if it was their child in question …”

"American values are on the line here, and no person I know would not have taken the same actions SFC Martland and Capt. Daniel Quinn did to protect a child, period. That's an American value."

I had always assumed that anyone Quentin Tarantino hired was a shitbag. Nice to be proven wrong.

This. Good to see somebody in Hollyweird think for themselves instead of going with the "script"

I had not heard of this case before this thread... Bravo to Mr. Keitel for getting a supreme injustice some press.

So what really happened
The incident is not officially the reason for the discharge, but was seen as contributing to his separation.

Harvey Keitel was a tough little bastard, who enlisted in the USMC as a 16 year old.

I've wondered as well. It's been brought up before but neither Martland nor the Army seem to be talking about the real reason.

I've always like HK, now I have a tangible reason to. Never knew he's a Marine.

Hell Yeah!

Years ago, Harvey Keitel stopped drinking his coffee and gave me directions to I-95 from LaGuardia
