I was thinking the same thing. There has been a lot of talk on the radio about Obama's flurry of pardons. It appears as though our prayers have been answered.
He pardoned a traitor. He still has 48 hours.......
He didn't pardon her; he commuted her sentence. She serves 4 more months and is still guilty
Still looks like a "get out of jail free" card to me. News reports said that this Benedict Arnold was sad about being in prison so commutation is exactly what Private Shithead wants.
It's still not a pardon; she will always remain guilty as charged.
I understand that, but if you sprung me 20+ years early from a military prison but told me that there would always be a black mark on my permanent record I would be doing the happy dance nonetheless. A free life on the margins is probably a ton better than breaking rocks in Levanworth.
