Navy Seals Charged for being Navy Seals!

Few things get me angrier than when our military get shafted for doing their jobs! Then, when I first read this, I was literally so angry that I couldn’t post!

Navy SEAL’s Face Assault Charges for Capturing Most-Wanted Terrorist

Navy SEALs have secretly captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq — the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. And three of the SEALs who captured him are now facing criminal charges, sources told

The three, all members of the Navy’s elite commando unit, have refused non-judicial punishment — called an admiral’s mast — and have requested a trial by court-martial.

Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named “Objective Amber,” told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.

Now, instead of being lauded for bringing to justice a high-value target, three of the SEAL commandos, all enlisted, face assault charges and have retained lawyers.

Navy SEALs Face Assault Charges for Capturing Most-Wanted Terrorist

This is one of the most incredibly ridiculous stories that I have ever seen.

It’s not that I don’t believe it. I do. It’s that these SEALs would be brought up on ANY kind of charges because a murdering son of a bitch named Ahmed Hashim Abed got a bloody lip in the process of being captured.

Assault charges? Against our Navy SEALs? Am I the only one that sees the unbelievably PC hand of the Obama administration at work here? Am I the only one that sees the biggest appeaser to ever inhabit the White House doing his thing? Or, maybe, having it done at his behest?

Matthew McCabe, a Special Operations Petty Officer Second Class (SO-2), is facing three charges: dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee, making a false official statement, and assault.

Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe, SO-2, is facing charges of dereliction of performance of duty and making a false official statement.

Petty Officer Julio Huertas, SO-1, faces those same charges and an additional charge of impediment of an investigation.

OK, there will be a few *do-gooders* that aren’t going to like what I have to say, but, that’s OK, I can live with it.

Once upon a time, this piece of garbage would have been brought in beat ALL to hell and back, he would have been kept alive, but just barely. He would have been interrogated and once the desired information was extracted, he would have been unceremoniously disposed of.

But, that was before we forgot how to fight wars. That was before we lost the definition of the word VICTORY! That was before we had our warfighting strategy dictated to us by the likes of Nouri al-Maliki and Hamid Karzai. And it was long before we became the WUSSIES that are more concerned with the RIGHTS of WAR CRIMINALS than we are with the safety of our own people! obtained the official handwritten statement from one of the three witnesses given on Sept. 3, hours after Abed was captured and still being held at the SEAL base at Camp Baharia. He was later taken to a cell in the U.S.-operated Green Zone in Baghdad.

The SEAL told investigators he had showered after the mission, gone to the kitchen and then decided to look in on the detainee.

“I gave the detainee a glance over and then left,” the SEAL wrote. “I did not notice anything wrong with the detainee and he appeared in good health.”

I am taking this Navy SEAL at his word. Anyone have a problem with that?

United States Central Command declined to discuss the detainee, but a legal source told that the detainee was turned over to Iraqi authorities, to whom he made the abuse complaints. He was then returned to American custody. The SEAL leader reported the charge up the chain of command, and an investigation ensued.

Read the above blockquote again, read it very carefully. He made his abuse complaint to IRAQI authorities. Now, I am NOT a conspiracy theory kind of guy, my regular readers know that, but suppose Ahmed Hashim Abed actually was in great condition when he was turned over to the Iraqis? Suppose they conspired to make the SEALs look bad and punched Abed in the mouth in an effort to make that happen? It is not out of the realm of possibility.

Suppose a Navy SEAL actually DID punch Abed? Do you really care? I know I damned sure don’t!

I sure as hell don’t, and further I think he should have punched this bastards ticket, unless he is a water boarding candidate. And no, I have no problem with using that mind trick on people like that!

    WTF??? Punched him? I’m torn between thinking that was little more than a restraint kind of thing.If nothing else I think it totally shows the restraint and professionalism of the SEALs. I applaud that even being in harms way and possibly having lost friends to people like Abed they didn’t just ventilate the cranium and make something up.
    Will the SEALs get a NYC trial btw? Holy crap


  2. Patrick Sperry Says:

    For some reason I seriously doubt that Alfie…


  3. Erik Hansen Says:

    From the Navy Times, “Army Maj Gen Charles Cleveland, SOCcent Commander preferred the charges.”
    I charge Army Maj Gen Charles Cleveland with a violation of section 3 of the Constitution, Treason, for giving aid and comfort to America’s Enemies.


  4. TexasFred Says:

    This one has a lot of people seriously stirred up, and rightfully so…

    The PC crowd, the Obamanation, has NO idea how close America is to a full meltdown, with the Obama administration at the heart of the matter…


  5. Patrick Sperry Says:

    I could see the general ordering an investigation Erik, that’s his duty after all if there is a complaint. But to actually try them? It might also be that general Cleveland wants this before himself rather than “other” channels so that he can be sure things are not allowed to get twisted around.

    I’m still pretty angry about this though.

    Fred, this things going over board…

    This sucks shit, completely and absolutely! It completely validates what Marcus Luttrell said in his book, that if they’d killed that f–ing goat herder they’d have been tried for it but since they didn’t all those Seals were killed. I cannot believe the insanity of this but I can promise there are a lot of us pissed off. My boss, who is a staunch conservative, but the least self-sufficient human I know was commenting this morning that militas around the country have got to be getting very stirred up. Locked and loaded is becoming a reality and this is very, very close to a tipping point for a lot of us!!
