Col. Nate Sassman Active Again

"With a heavy dose of fear and violence, and a lot of money for projects, I think we can convince these people that we are here to help them."
--Lt. Col. Nathan Sassaman


Col. Nate Sassaman seems to be the most insane US commander on the ground in Iraq. Whenever his name comes up in the news, it is some extreme atrocity resembling Nazi occupation in Russia or Poland.

First we read he ordered the entire town of Abu Hishma razor-wired, and he forced 126 family sheiks to sign a contract that they turn in themselves to prison if there are more attacks in the region. Also see this followup.

Here is a reminder of how Abu Ghraib detainees are collected. On December 17, 2003, Sassaman's troops carted off the entire male polulation of Abu Siffa village, and then proceeded to blow up all the houses.

Sassaman is also the officer who was trying to cover up the murder of an Iraqi captured at night curfew, who drowned after being forced to jump off a bridge - incidentally, he was a relative of the most pro-us Iraqi blogger, Zayed (see this and this update too!).

But Sassaman is not fired, not imprisoned for war crimes. Lately, he was handing out medals to his deranged racist troopers.

you talk about this as if you were there sounds like second hand stories of a bleeding heart liberal who wants to win the hearts and minds at the cost of us soldiers

how ass backwards can one man get. Go there, pick up a gun, fight for your life and other's lives and America. Get off your fat lazy ass and make a difference instead of talking about one. see blood and guts on the ground. See men wounded beyond repair begging to stay in the fight. then tell me when you come home from all of that how hard it it to keep from beating a person like you senseless.

another soldier

Sassaman may not have been fired but he has certainly retired. Several of the soldiers have been reprimanded and the sitation seems to have been dealt with but not the bigger issue of effectivly fighting the insurgency and resolving the conflict in Iraq.

I served under Sassaman and first off all he is not insane. He is the best military leader the Army has had in years. We wired the city due to the fact one of our soldiers was killed there from rpg fire.We cant show weakness to the insurgency or they will exploit us. We have to intimidate the locals more than the insurgency and yet gain thier respect at the same time. How would you do it. Are you a military commander or just another monday morning soldier? If you feel you can do better than us, feel free to contact your local recruiter and put on our uniform. We may need someone as intellegent as yourself for this next deployment.

i served under COL. SASSMAN in iraq and everything he and we did was necessary.not only for the safety of our soldiers but for the security of the region.i was there when the village was wired off and i did paltols in and around Abu Hishma while it was wired off,and after that we had no more problems from those people.COL. NATE SASSMAN is one of the most effective millitary commanders in our generation,and wish more commanders thought the same as he does...there would be alot less U.S. casulties then there are today........ATTACK!!!!

col sassman was the most successful comander in the diayla province to date. the stats prove it. i am now in 2006 and the people in the town know of jim and respect his methods. whoever wrote this article should come here and walk around with his oppressed buddies. oh wait they would drag him through the streets!!!

Hello there, I just wanted to let you know that I am related to Nathan Sassaman. Also what you just said is not true. He was great at his job so you must not know much about the war and all because you have no idea what your saying. He was great and a good christian and family man. SO maybe before you go off saying crap about other people, you should get your facts straight first.

THANKS

I served under COL Sassman and I am proud of it. COL Sassman is responsible for all soldiers in the Battalion. With his work ethics, and outstanding staff, we were able to accomplish our missions with excellence. We did our jobs and our mission was complete. We may had lost 2 soldiers in the battalion but the rest made it home safely to their families.
You can say all that you want about him. He is a true leader and if I had to do it again, I will serve with him again, anywhere, anytime.
Leaders like him would reduce the chaos on whats going in on in Iraq today.

COL Sassaman was an outstanding military officer. His career was cut short due to the selfish coward, Fred Rudesheim. It was GEN Odierno who ordered the containment of Abu Hishma. There was no cover up of a murder, because there was no murder.

I am nearly finished reading "Warrior King," his biography. There are always two sides to every view, but the one I trust the most are those of the people who knew him and who served with him. IOf the sergeants and specialists who were in his unit praised him then he must have been a good commander. I think his view is correct, especially since the U.S. had to succeed with a "surge," which is the use of force, lots of it, and which is now said to be the key to success in Iraq--but we won't know until the U.S. has left the place.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I
think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
