First the Obama Administration opened up the possibility of prosecuting CIA interrogators doing their jobs seeking information from terrorists. Then they tried to go after the Bush Administration lawyers who acted in good faith to protect us in the months after 9/11.
Now some of the military brass are court-martialing three brave Navy SEALs for allegedly throwing a single punch at Iraqi terrorist leader Ahmed Hashim Abed. This is wrong. The Washington Times got it right: Save the SEALs.
These brave warriors belong in combat, not in the courthouse. They captured the most wanted terrorist in Iraq. We may never know how many other heroic missions they undertook on behalf of our country. The charges should be dropped, and they should be returned to their unit – with our gratitude for their service.
Stand up for the SEALs who are standing up for us!
She's a Blue Star Mom. I would expect nothing less, but there are a few inconsistencies here;
First, the SEALs ASKED for a court-martial in order to get a fair and complete airing of the evidence, rather than jeporadize their careers with an administrative reprimand.
Second, the chain of custody for this POS terrorist indicates he was in Iraqi custody prior to being transferred to US custody and we don't know how the Iraqi's treated him.
