Dear Members of the Clemency and Parole Board,

I am writing to indicate my support for Corey Clagett in his upcoming clemency hearing on June 3, 2011. By reading about Corey’s case I learned about to the facts of his incarceration and I feel that a grave injustice has taken place. I believe in the arguments of Corey’s attorney, Tim Parlatore, and hope that you find them persuasive as well.

First, I believe the American justice system should not punish soldiers, fighting to protect the very sacredness of that system, in the same way it punishes those who commit heinous crimes here within our own borders. A killing in the midst of war is not the same as a premeditated murder in the United States and the punishment should reflect this difference.

Second, instead of being locked up, I believe Corey needs psychological treatment from the VA. Even though Corey committed a wrong, I feel strongly that the four years in solitary confinement he has already served is more than enough and he now deserves rehabilitating treatment.

Third, as I understand it, Corey’s sentence is much longer than those who committed the crime with him, specifically the man who ordered Corey to kill the Iraqi. This information came as a complete shock to me, how is that justice?

Finally, I believe that Corey should receive a lower sentence because he chose to cooperate with the Government. Corey’s cooperation showed me that he was taking responsibility for his actions.

Thank you for giving me the chance to write on behalf of a cause I care deeply about. As an American, I hope that Corey’s clemency petition will be granted and that he will be released.

Sincerely,

Background information:

PFC Corey Clagett was serving in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division in 2006, when he was arrested and imprisoned for murder  following orders during Operation Iron Triangle.  He was only 21 years old when Corey’s squad was sent into Thar-Thar with orders to “kill all military aged males.”  When they instead took three Iraqis prisoner, he and Specialist William Hunsaker were ordered to release the detainees and kill them.

When Pfc. Clagett was charged, he was unable to obtain a civilian lawyer to represent him. Finally one did free of charge, only to have him abandon Corey just days before trial.

Represented by an inexperienced JAG lawyer, prosecutors threatened Corey life in prison or the death penalty.  He agreed to plead guilty in exchange for an 18 year sentence.

All those involved and of higher rank were and advised to plead to different charges and were sentenced and subsequently released within 9 month to 3 years. No officers as part of the plea agreement were to be named that gave the orders.  No officers received court martial yet Corey rots in Leavenworth.

For in depth detail please visit: http://www.coreyclagett.com/ .


First I would like to say thanks to all of you who have supported this young man and his family.  This is now the most important part of the operation.  Now, it’s our turn. This is not a poll to sign that will go no place, this will be your letter delivered to  the Chairman, Army Clemency and Parole Board.

Many of you have read my articles on freeing Pfc. Corey Clagett, wrongly imprisoned in Leavenworth, Kansas in solitary confinement.  Long story short, Corey followed a direct order on a mission early in Iraq in the area of Thar-Thar to kill all males of military age.

Your version of this letter must be sent to the Corey’s attorney by mail or Fax. Just follow your heart.  Your letters to Corey and your contributions have been so helpful, that his Mom, Melanie can afford to attend by air, her hotel is comped. Any help is still greatly appreciated for the financial defense.

Please help save this young man’s life and put him back with his family.  See letter below:

Please forward the link to this article or copy and paste to every patriot you know, former Veterans, please do so and ask them to get the letter into the attorney quickly.  Please do it now, don’t put it off.  So many have helped but few to date have written.  Now it’s our turn to fight back for Corey’s freedom. God Bless you, God Bless us and the USA.

Our Goal is to get 5,000 Clemency Letters written on Corey’s Behalf. We made it easy for you with the letter below.Just print , fill in your info and hand sign and mail to Corey’s attorney. We need your help, it only takes a minute to print and fill out and mail or fax to Corey’s attorney Timothy Parlatore.

Please do not mail this letter to the Army Clemency and Parole Board but send it to the following address:

    How do we justify, prosecuting soldiers for following orders. Really removes the enthusiasm to fight for your country. The rules of engagement is quite hard to comprehend when one is being shot at.

    • Donnie I’ve been on this and now there are new ones for quite some time. People are sending money which is more than needed, the letters to the Secretary of the Army I’m guessing folks think it’s being done by others. Please not only write/fax and include to like minded friends by Email. This young mans and others lives are hanging in the balance, Alen West has agreed to testify. Thanks for whatever you decide to do. J.C.

    • Thanks my friend and if you get the feeling in your heart to send a little note with it to like minded friends, and ask them to do the same we will have our 5000 or more quickly thanks for your help Donnie, J.C.

  2. Will download and send! Thanks for the reminder.

  3. ” It would be great if you would send the link with a note about how you feel to your friends by Email. J.C.”
    Yes, Will do! Great Cause!

    • Teri you are such a sweetheart, you have been such a great commenter and supporter of getting this country back on track. It sure can’t be done if we send our children to fight wars with PC rules and then treat our own worse than the enemy. Members of al Qaeda have free access to Video Phones to call their family thank you International Red Cross, which does nothing for US Military in this regard. Corey’s collect calls were $500.00 the past month. Jim

  4. Ever since Obama has been president – bad things have happened to our miitary – to our nation – to our constitution – to our economy – to our health care system – to our schools – to Christians and Christian pastors- to our jobs – to our homes – to our water – to our soil – to our fish – to our bees – to our birds – to our gulf – not saying he cause it – just sayin’ – lots of bad things have happened to America and the American people – In my book, “Fight Back Legal Abuse” I expose the injustices that can happen even to innocent people – check out my blogs, photos, videos , book at http://www.fightbacklegalabuse.com

    • Thank you Rose. Rose is my friend and has written a best seller “Fight Back on Legal Abuse” she chronicles her traumas going through divorce and how to obtain a better outcome. It’s in the link above and I recommend it to all ready to pull the plug or for a look in depth at the legal system, she has a radio show, and speaks nationally. Welcome to the circus rose, J.C. is the ring master. Enjoy the tabs under the elephant. Please don’t forget to write a letter for Corey. xoxo J.C.

  5. Will be in the mail tomorow, thanks Jim.

    • Thanks Angie, knew I could count on you. Please consider sending a copy of your note with a little note to all your friends on Email that would be inclined to right this wrong. xoxo Jim

  6. I will be sure to notify my local Disabled AmericanVeteran (DAV) group, along with the the American Legion and the various Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in my county (MERCED, Ca.) today in case they haven’t heard or might need a reminder… Maybe I can get, or someone else can get, a list of e-mail addresses of ALL the various groups to mail to them. I’m SURE they are they ones that are MOST interested in this plight, don’t you think? Maybe all you readers out there can notify YOUR local VETERAN groups as I think they will stand up and contribute!!! My letter is forthcoming…
    G’Day…Steve

    • Steve, what a God send, great idea, none of us that have been working on this to my knowledge have covered this, Thanks a million my friend. This is great news, I’m going to hit Veterans groups with it as well. Thanks, Jim

  7. I printed this letter, filled it out and attempted to Fax. Error console stated that the line was either busy or no signal. I never heard the “Hand Shake” between the two Fax Machines.

    I will attempt again later. If I have to I will snail mail it.

    • Buzz he just called me and told me today for what ever reason he has a new fax number I”ve made the change on the article and will send the number to you thanks, Jim
