Dear Friends of Michael:
In the two weeks since the Oklahoma Congressional Delegation sent its letter requesting clemency for Michael to the board reviewing his sentence, we’ve seen a spike in media and online attention to Michael’s case.
One of the media links I’ve included is an excellent morning radio program by host Pat Campbell. In addition to an interview with Vicki you will hear Mr. Campbell exhorting his listeners to ‘Get this message out! People need to hear about this story of injustice!” The link is below.
The other link I am passing along to you is an article written by the Director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, Douglas J. Hagmann . As Mr. Hagmann emphatically states, ” The analysis of the forensic evidence alone should have been sufficient to pierce the standard of reasonable doubt needed to convict Lieutenant Behenna. Unfortunately, it never saw the light of day in its proper form, and now a US Army officer fighting for the safety of every American is sitting in prison as a direct result of this omission of exculpatory evidence.” He finishes his article by saying “The front line of defense against terrorism has been marginalized by this blatant miscarriage of justice.” To read the entire article click on the link below.
We had over 100 petition signatures within two hours of the Pat Campbell show and over 400 signatures in the last four days. Please help us keep the momentum by sharing Michael’s story with everyone you know and by passing email addresses onto us that can be added to our ever growing mailing list.
As always, thank you for your prayers and your support.
Scott & Vicki Behenna
Proud parents of 1LT Michael Behenna
P.S. Please consider sending Michael a card or a letter. This will be Michael’s first Thanksgiving in prison (and God willing the only one he will spend there) and I know it would lift his spirits to hear from you. Michael’s address is:
Michael Behenna #87503
1300 N. Warehouse Road
Fort Leavenworth, KS 66027-2304
