American Heroes Charged With Giving Terrorist A Bloody Lip

Posted by TheJOTUS on November 25, 2009

Are you wondering what kind of terrorist? Well, a big enough terrorist that the military deemed it necessary to give him his own code-name: “ObjectiveAmber”. He was the douchebag behind the ambush of a supply (food) transport that resulted in the capture, torture and murder of four Blackwater Security agents. Their bodies were then burned and dragged through the streets while being further violated by cheering “religion of peace” animals. Two of the bodies were then hung from a bridge where the media dutifully photographed and published the pictures for the world to see.

So, a tad bit worse than a fucking bloody lip.

Yet, here we are, charging three SEALS with basically that: a bloody lip:

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.

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.

I guess loading up a few planes, slamming into few buildings, killing 3,000 people and you get all the due process rights of the civilian criminal justice system. But a bloody lip? Well, under the Obama administration that is more than enough to get you some rough and tumble military justice.

Or you could be a known muslim Army doctor preaching jihadist doctrine, communicating with al qaeda, corresponding with an associate of the 9/11 cabal and still get the benefit of the doubt than three Navy SEALS on the front line.

Embarrassing.

Although, on the other hand, perhaps there is more to this. While the bloody lip is the underlying factor here, the SEALS are also accused of making false statements or some other shenanigans impeding the “investigation”.

The Navy probably would have let this go without action if the SEALS did not do something to obstruct the investigation, or lie about something stupid. In reacting to the investigation, the SEALS may have panicked and fudged some facts, which were objectively false. Something the Marine Corps and the Navy consider much, much worse, than the underlying “offense”, if it even occurred. So what would have been nothing turned into something.

Like I said, there could be more to this. But as it stands, this shit is nickel and dime. And in the wake of what happened at Fort Hood, something is seriously wrong with our military on a certain level.
