MY SEALS - TWO DOWN ONE TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Updated on July 26, 2010

BREAKING NEWS

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 both charged with dereliction of duty on allegations he failed to safeguard the prisoner. It’s obvious to an idiot they shoud have been found not guilty . It’s a mis-carriage of justice that any charges were even considered!!!!!!!!!!

These men and their associate 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. That’s two down and one to go!!!! Now that they have been cleared they’re free as birds again.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe, of Perrysburg, Ohio, the SEAL charged with assaulting Abed, is scheduled to be court-martialed May 3 in Virginia, where the three men are based. Is there a shadow of a doubt that he also should be acquitted? These great patriots were doing their sworn duty . Is there any doubt that McCabe must also be free as a bird with his buddys!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Folks let’s hold our breath that justice will pervail and freedom will reign over the land!!!!!!!!!!

      It seems the only sensible thing to happen. But we do live in strange times. I have a lot of hope here.

      I'm not an expert on the military justice system. The best I know is if they're found innocent they're good to go!!!!!!!!!

      Personally, I think these guys careers as SEALS are over. They'll be assigned to desks until they quit. And I've found the Muslim reaction true to form - irate, saying there's no justice for a Muslim!

      i hope it is all over soon and our heros can go back to doing what they do best. i love them and hope they don't hate our nation for what BO has done to them. they are heros and should be treated as such. but i keep hearing so many scary things from washington. just the other day i heard that the U.S. (BO) wants israel to back off military strikes on iran, and if they fly the united states will shoot them down????? i thought israel was an ally.

      Sheri,

      I think there's a lot of pressure for them to just drop the charges. They have already made fools of themselves!!!!!!!

      Let's keep praying they do right by the third wrongfully accused soldier as well.

      This charade should have been stopped from the outset. Obama should be ashamed of this spectacle.

      BJBenson,

      I agree there is somewhat of a turn in acceptance of the military the political climate is dubious at this time, but I think the professional military officers who sit in judgement on these panels will find for aquittal of all charges and Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe will be free as a bird once it's over.

      eovery,

      I think he was alleged to have slugged the terrorist, but the trial is to determine his guilt or innocence. I sure hope the allegations are proven false and Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe is acquitted of all charges and then he'll be free as a bird!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

      Tom, I agree with you. It has angered me that they were ever charged and I am delighted the first two are cleared and I pray that McCabe is cleared as well.

      I have been watching Military turn on it's own for twenty-five years and counting. It could still go either way.

      Don't forget terrorist have more rights then our own people. Even in our own country. I think everyone that isn't American might have more rights soon!

      This last one, from what I understand is the one to have slug the murderer. Too bad he didn't kill him.

      If the third is not acquitted it will be a shame on the judicial system.

      Keep on hubbing!

      Justice is done once again for our Heroes. A precedent has been set and our 3rd Hero should have all charges dropped "Now". To drag them through this is disgraceful. Their families and friends should be very proud of them like we all are. Let them go back to work and do what they do best.
