Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has largely dodged questions during his first months in office and has instead used Facebook to spread his message and curate his image. Republican strategists applaud Greitens’ political savvy in his use of social media, but other Capitol observers say his reluctance to answer questions raises transparency concerns.
Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Lewellen of Missouri was one of three Green Berets who were killed Nov. 4 as they entered an allied base in Jordan. His families, and those of the two other soldiers, say the shootings by a Jordanian officer were clearly murder. But the Jordanian government has blamed the American soldiers.
Chuck and Cindy Lewellen of Kirksville want their son, Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Lewellen, and two other Special Forces soldiers, cleared by Jordan of any wrong doing in an incident where they were shot and killed by a Jordanian commander. They also want the shooter to be brought to justice. The soldiers were on a training mission in Jordan last November when they were attacked entering a military base.
