Navy SEALs Face Assault Charges for Capturing Most-Wanted Terrorist

OK, check this out:

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.

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.

So a terrorist gets a bloody lip during his capture and now the elite Navy SEALS are going to be prosecuted.

Unbelievable.

We stand beside you, Navy SEALS. We stand beside you, U.S. Military. Thank you for protecting us. If a terrorist needs a bloody lip (or worse) in order to protect us and other innocent people, then by all means, give the terrorist a bloody lip (or worse). The terrorist gave up his rights when he wagged a war of terror on innocent people. You folks in the military are our heroes. Please never forget that.

The source said intelligence briefings provided to the SEALs stated that “Objective Amber” planned the 2004 Fallujah ambush, and “they had been tracking this guy for some time.”

The Fallujah atrocity came to symbolize the brutality of the enemy in Iraq and the degree to which a homegrown insurgency was extending its grip over Iraq.

The four Blackwater agents were transporting supplies for a catering company when they were ambushed and killed by gunfire and grenades. Insurgents burned the bodies and dragged them through the city. They hanged two of the bodies on a bridge over the Euphrates River for the world press to photograph.

Intelligence sources identified Abed as the ringleader, but he had evaded capture until September.

The military is sensitive to charges of detainee abuse highlighted in the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. The Navy charged four SEALs with abuse in 2004 in connection with detainee treatment.

Apparently too sensitive. Another case of out of control political correctness. Our enemies must be very proud of what we have become.
