A dogged NCIS investigator has proven that Ilario Pantano, then a Marine lieutenant, should never have been put up on war-crimes charges back in 2004-5. But that doesn’t wipe away the endless smears thrown at him since.
Maybe the media and the bloggers hated him so much because he lived the classic American success story.
There are high points to this story; two retired Marines who felt obliged to maintain a security watch around Pantano’s house, William Rodriguez of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service who finally cleared his name.
But five years later, after Ilario felt obliged to leave NY, after smears by liberal bloggers and the liberal press sank his North Carolina campaign for Congress. Read the full story.
Read how flimsy the initial case was. That enough people in the chain of command felt feeding a young Marine Lieutenant to the liberals and media during the Murtha era was a good idea.
How can we still find men like this to volunteer to go into battle for us? And worse than battle, the possible loss of honor and liberty.
For me the worst part is that none of the liberal dogs responsible will ever pay for their crimes.

New York City has a little more than 8 million residents. Of those many millions, 1% — ONE PERCENT — pays 43% of the income taxes. You know how many people that works out to? About 35,000 people.
Used to be more than 35,000. But the years of high taxes, sur-taxes, use-taxes and special assessments have cut the number of Fifth Ave. millionaires in NYC. You see, the rich are different than us. They aren’t tied to a job, they can move their business somewhere else.
