Three Navy SEALs Face Court Martial For Capturing Terrorist Leader

This is just outrageous.

Three Navy SEALs who captured terrorist Ahmed Hashim Abed in Iraq last September for allegedly abusing him. Abed claims he has the fat lip to prove it.

Petty Officers Matthew McCabe, Jonathan Keefe and Julio Huertas are being court martialed. All three are being charged with dereliction of duty and making false statements. McCabe is the officer specifically being charged with assaulting Abed and Huertas is also being charged with impeding an investigation. They are scheduled to be arraigned in a military court on December 7th. How fitting considering how they've been Pearl Harbored.

Abed is believed to the mastermind behind the murder and mutilation of four American contractors in Fallujah in March 2004. Somehow I think being dragged through the streets and then being hung off a bridge overlooking the Euphrates constitutes a greater indignity than a fat lip.

We should be throwing these men a ticker tape parade on the streets of New York. But we're giving one to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed instead. What a nice way to give thanks to our soldiers serving in a war zone.

As Stephen Brown of FrontPage Mag writes, "It makes one wonder how the West is ever going to win the war against radical Islam."
