December 7 is a day that will live again in infamy. However this time America is not being attacked by enemies foreign, but by enemies domestic. On this day in 2009, three Navy SEALs will go on trial for doing their duty for America. What a difference a decade makes.
The SEALs were tasked with capturing Ahmed Hashim Abed, the terrorist responsible for the torture and murder of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. As Fox News reported,
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.
This obvious provocation by Blackwater of transporting supplies created the stir that got Abed atop the “Most Wanted Manmade Disaster” list. As you can see, all this was Blackwater’s fault!
Regardless, the SEALs did their job. They captured Abed. And when they brought him in, Abed said that he had been punched…in the gut. And he had the fat lip to prove it. Now I know SEALs are tough, but that must have been one heck of a “gut punch” to make his lip swell. I’m no attorney, but I think I could get these SEALs off on this technicality alone.
Shameless Plug: Consider buying my book The BIG Black Lie and get others to consider it as well. It is an Amazon best-seller and the only 5-star political book on Amazon!
The charges facing the SEALs are as follows:
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.
So let’s recap. Three Navy SEALs were tasked with capturing a bona fide terrorist who had undoubtedly kidnapped and executed four Americans, mutilated their bodies, then hanged two of them from a bridge in Iraq. And the terrorist complains of unsubstantiated “harsh treatment” because…he has a fat lip! Do you think terrorists read the Liberals’ playbook?
Now if this were a civilian situation, I might not have to ask this next question. However since the military is responsible for this, I’d like to know the person(s) who brought these SEALs up on charges, so I could…punch him in the gut! Then I’d kick him in the naughty bits, sans cup, AND finally I’d punch him in the lip…until it was fat!
What kind of nation have we become when our citizens can be mutilated and hanged, and our fighting men are then prosecuted for doing their jobs, by bringing the culprit to justice…fat lip be damned? I bet you can find many people in America would say that Abed got off pretty easily, if all he got was a punch in the gut! Believe me when I tell you from first-hand experience that you would need only an infinitesimal fraction of a SEAL to take care of ten Abeds.
Neal Puckett, attorney for McCabe has captured the next steps in this psychodrama in his comment:
“I don’t know how they’re going to bring this detainee to the United States and give us our constitutional right to confrontation in the courtroom,” Puckett said. “But again, we have terrorists getting their constitutional rights in New York City, but I suspect that they’re going to deny these SEALs their right to confrontation in a military courtroom in Virginia.”
And as part of ObamaNation’s “embarrass the US military” and “divide and conquer America” strategy, the plan is to use three other SEALs (two of them officers!) to testify against the other three SEALs, all of whom are enlisted men. And what can we expect these THREE other SEALs possibly add to this discussion? That perhaps one of the SEALs in question did indeed punch the detainee…in the gut!
Will there be an investigation as to “why” Abed was punched in the gut. Maybe Abed was badmouthing Protestantism or Catholicism? Certainly according to Islam, you can’t say anything bad about that religion. Or maybe it was because he had burned and killed four Americans sent to help Iraq, then hung two of them from a bridge?
At this point, why don’t we just decommission the military and let the Girl Scouts take over? Oh that’s right we already did that—when Obama was sworn in!
