Navy Seals Court Martial

November 25, 2009 by  

Recently a team of Navy SEALs captured Ahmed Hashim Abed, the terrorist who murdered and then mutilated three Blackwater security guards in Fallujah in 2004. Now three of the Navy SEALs face a court martial for prisoner abuse.

The alleged abuse is said to have taken place after Ahmed Hashim Abed was in custody. The three Navy SEALs in question have refused a non judicial punishment and have opted for a court
Navy SEALs Face Court Martial for Beat Down of Terrorist Prisoner

According to Fox News:

“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.”

In other words the three Navy SEALs are facing a court martial for beating a prisoner and then trying to cover it up.

Hot Air’s Allahpundit suggests that the strategy of going to a court martial is a smart one on the part of the Navy SEALs. The Navy SEAL court martial is taking place against the highly controversial spectacle of a show trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and several other terrorists in New York City.

“The last thing The One needs after shipping KSM off to NYC for his close-up is the image of SEALs being hauled off to prison for busting some jihadi in the face. In fact, according to Fox, the SEALs requested a court-martial rather than nonjudicial punishment, presumably because they know full well how awful this looks for the military. Prediction: Wrist slap.”
