MY SEALS- THREE FOR THREE-THEY ARE ALL FREE

Updated on August 25, 2010

SWEET VICTORY

Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe, of Perrysburg, Ohio, the SEAL charged with assaulting Ahmed Hashim Abed, was acquitted today May 6,2010 in his court-martial in Virginia, where the three men are based. Is there a shadow of a doubt that he also should have been acquitted? These great patriots were doing their sworn duty. Is there any doubt that McCabe should also be free as a bird with his buddies!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The court-martial of Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe, of Yorktown, Virginia, ended in an acquittal on April 23, 2010 at Camp Victory just as his brother Navy Seal Petty Officer Julio Huertas had on April 22,2010. These brave men were charged with dereliction of duty on allegations they failed to safeguard the prisoner. It’s obvious to an idiot they should have been found not guilty. It’s a miss-carriage of justice that any charges were even considered!!!!!!!!!!

These men should never have been charged in the first place!!! They were only doing their duty. That’s what we pay them for, and they carried it out well. This proves these military men are heroic and virtuous since they have been cleared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s three for three and it just can’t get any better fhan that. At long, long last justice has prevailed and freedom has reigned in the military justice system!!!!!!!!!!

 

NOTE

 THIS HUB WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN ON SUNDAY MAY 2,2010 SUCH WAS MY CONFIDENCE IN THE OUTCOME.

      I wrote about the verdicts, too. But I have to admit I wasn't confident. I was sure they were innocent, but by the very fact that they were court martialed, I had no trust in that system.

      An unnecessary and sham trial by the appeasers we have in control now. This trial should NEVER even have taken place!

      The Uniform Code of Military Justice works pretty well. I doubt any of these men would have faced charges at all if some DC overlord hadn't demanded it. Good job Tom!

      Dear Tom,

      Thank God this travesty of justice is over. Obama should have stepped in and stopped this circus. I think it's a disgrace that he let this go on.

      Pop,

      I think the only interest Obama has in the military is as possibly organizing them as SEIU members!!!!!!!

      He could care less about defending the country!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Tom,

      3 for 3 is damn good, but this series of games should never have been played. The cowardly political pressure exerted on the Command Structure to even question these men, let alone bring charges and these hearings to the light of day has done nothing but weaken our safety and embloden our enemies.

      This whole charade is a travesty, based solely in the misplaced alligience to political correctness and the liberal agenda.

      ready,

      I didn't agree with everything done by George W. Bush but there's no way this trial would have been held if he was still in office!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Yea! Thanks for letting us know this great news. Now there is another one from Oklahoma who needs the same thing - Michael Brenna. His sentence was recently reduced, but they still gave him prison - it might have been 10 years, not sure.
