How is this for outrageous? Three Navy SEALs secretly captured a most wanted terrorist and in the capture the dirt bag terrorist got fat lip and now charges are being brought against the SEALs!
From Fox News:
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 FoxNews.com.
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.
There is indication that the SEALs may not even have punched the creep.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. MORE
United States Central Command declined to discuss the detainee, but a legal source told FoxNews.com 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.
Something tells me that Ahmed Hasim got his fat lip from the Iraqis but is pinning it on the SEALs because he knows how squeamish and PC some Americans can be. Quite frankly, I could not care less if the SEALs beat the guy to a bloody pulp. These Islamic fascists kill without a second thought, yet we are suppose to play by the Marquis of Queensbury rules, give me a break.
I sear to God Political Correctness will be the death of America! This is the same retarded thinking that allowed Nidal Hasan to hide his crazy jihad ass right inside our armed forces. Could someone please tell the powers that be that war is NOT an academic exercise and the war on terror is not a parlor game!
