Lets Take a Look At Captain Humayun Kahn
He got a degree in psychology. ...a vehicle packed with an improvised explosive device drove into the gate of his compound while he was inspecting soldiers on guard duty while in the ROTC, going on active duty, serving in Iraq and a â€œcounselor to soldiers.â€
The incidents are under investigation.
During his three months in Iraq, Khan helped put Iraqi civilians to work for $5 an hour patrolling the streets of Baquba under the U.S. Army, his father said.
All of this comes from http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/hsmkhan.htm
Now, as a retired sergeant, a whole lot of things about this story bother me. If he got a degree in psychology, why was he serving as an ordnance officer? How did he gain the rank of Captain upon graduating from the University of Virginia. ROTC grads are normally given the rank of Second Lieutenant. He is then assigned to the Forward Support Battalion of the 1st Infantry Division in Germany and sent to Baqubah, Iraq. Was he sent to translate? Pakistanis speak Urdu. Iraqis speak Kurdish or Arabic. Was he multi-lingual?
He was inspecting troops at a security check point. So, why did he walk towards a taxi instead of sending one of his sergeants to do so â€“ as most officers are trained to do?
As a personnel sergeant, one thing stands out to me â€“ his awards. He received a Bronze Star Medal and a Purple Heart. The BSM does NOT have a V signifying valor. Why is that? To me, it signifies they awarded it to him as that's what every officer who serves in a combat zone gets. It's their version of a Good Conduct Medal. So someone somewhere in the chain of command did not deem his death was due to an act of valor.
Why am I pointing all this out? Because Hillary and her minions drug out this captain's parent for their own political reason and NOT because they were lauding the service of their son. Kahn had worked for the Clintons in a number of capacities and was paying them back for their patronage. No more. No less. It was a political ploy and non-politician Trump fell for it. I hope someone in his campaign staff wakes up and does a better job of informing The Donald than they've done to date.
