More Tea Party Terrorists. North Carolina Candidate allegedly murdered 2 Iraqis in cold blood.
Yet another disgraceful example of terrorism from North Carolina.
Ilario Pantano, who is running for North Carolina’s 7th congressional district as a Republican Party Candidate, the Politcal Wing of the Tea Party Terrorists, was charged with the premeditated murder of two Iraqi civilians in 2005 while serving as a second lieutenant with the US Marines.
In April of 2004, Pantano and his platoon stopped and detained two Iraqi men in a car near Falluja. He and two others ordered the detained Iraqis to search their own car for weapons and then allegedly unloaded two full magazines of his M16A4 rifle into them.
The Politial Representative of the Tea Party told the New York magazine “I believed that by firing the number of rounds that I did, I was sending a message”
Pantano, who earlier had the Iraqis put in plastic handcuffs, now had Doc Gobles cut the cuffs off, which he did with his trauma shears. Then Gobles marched the two prisoners to their vehicle, placed one in the open door of the front seat, the other in the open door of the rear seat. Pantano motioned to the prisoners to search the car. He ordered Gobles to post security at the front of the car; Sergeant Coburn at the rear. Both men turned their backs on Pantano and the Iraqis.
A short time later, the shots started. Gobles and Coburn spun around. Pantano, ten feet from the Iraqis, emptied his M-16’s magazine, reloaded, emptied another. Later, Coburn recalled wondering “when the lieutenant was going to stop, because it was obvious that they were dead.” Photos, souvenirs taken by a Marine, would show one Iraqi nearly embracing the backseat of the car. The other lolled on his side, his head on the floorboard.
