The “American” Legion doesn’t Include the War Crimes Committed by Israel During USS Liberty Attack as an Issue it has a “Sacred Obligation” to Address.
Mr. Koutz alleges:
It is much more than good political sense to address the questions, problems and issues our nations veterans and their families face today. It is a sacred obligation. I think we can all agree on that.
One thing I can agree on is that you don’t believe it nor do you practice what you preach.
Let me to submit an open question to Commander James E. Koutz:
Why is it impossible to get a USS Liberty resolution passed at The American Legion National Convention?
Every member can submit a resolution and, if passed locally and at the state level, can be considered at the National Convention.
Except for USS Liberty resolutions.
Don’t take my word for it. Ask the Michigan American Legion.
They passed and submitted a resolution to be considered during the 2012 National Convention.
According to the duly elected delegate from the State of Michigan, The American Legion Judge Advocate General Phil Onderdonk, speaking about the USS Liberty resolution, told him, “Your resolution is going nowhere”.
And it didn’t.
His invitation to speak on behalf of the resolution was withdrawn and the resolution was not even considered by the National Organization.
Mr. Koutz is asking Congress to treat the American veteran better than The American Legion does.
So much for a “sacred obligation.”
