WASHINGTON – President Bush on Monday approved the execution of an Army private, who had been convicted in connection with a spree of four murders and eight rapes in the Fayetteville, N.C., area in the late 1980s while stationed at Fort Bragg.  This marks the first time in over a half-century that a president has affirmed a death sentence for a member of the U.S. military.

“While approving a sentence of death for a member of our armed services is a serious and difficult decision for a commander in chief, the president believes the facts of this case leave no doubt that the sentence is just and warranted,” said White House press secretary, Dana Perino.  For more information on this, click here and return back to comment.
