Hey, Don’t Give Terrorist Murderers a Fat Lip; Navy SEALS Criminally Charged

By Debbie Schlussel

A couple of years ago, I was on the thankfully now-defunct “Montel” show to discuss political issues (and get berated by the unduly smug pothead with two diamond stud earrings, who hosted the eponymous show).  I was on with the family of one of the Blackwater employees who was burnt to a crisp and hung on display in Fallujah by Iraqi Muslim barbarians (a redundant phrase).  The family was suing Blackwater (now known as “Xe”) and placed the blame squarely on Blackwater and not the Islamic terrorists who did this.  That was the point I tried to focus on during the show.





Now, U.S. troops are also getting the treatment Blackwater got.  They captured one of the savage Islamic terrorists who committed this brutal, barbaric set of murders and desecrations.  But they gave the guy a fat lip.  And, in the Obama Islamo-pandering worldview, a swollen lip far exceeds murdering four Americans, burning their bodies to a crisp, and hanging them on display for Muslim laughing, smiling, and partying.

It should be noted that the Bush Administration wasn’t much better on these things, with Condi Clueless a/k/a Condoleezza Rice forcing Muslim “sensitivity training” on Blackwater not long after the brutal murders of the four American contractors.

Still gotta love that Obama “perspective,” which is that much worse and hits a new low in surrender monkey-ism. Yup, this is how Barack Obama wishes the Navy SEALS a “Happy Thanksgiving.” Actually, it appears he’s taken the Best Buy route and skipped the Thanksgiving greetings in favor of a Happy Eid Al-Adha wish to Muslims. And it’s truly “meaningful.” Eid Al-Adha is the Muslim “festival of the sacrifice.” And the Obama Administration is sacrificing these Navy SEALS on the alter of Islamo-pandering:

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. . . .

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.

The three SEALs will be arraigned separately on Dec. 7. . . .

The official handwritten statement from one of the three witnesses [was] given on Sept. 3, hours after Abed was captured and still being held at the SEAL base at Camp Baharia. He was later taken to a cell in the U.S.-operated Green Zone in Baghdad. . . .

The detainee was turned over to Iraqi authorities, to whom he made the abuse complaints. He was then returned to American custody. The SEAL leader reported the charge up the chain of command, and an investigation ensued.

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.

Um, way too sensitive. If we weren’t so “sensitive,” perhaps less American troops would die. The world is laughing at this ridiculous treatment of our own men. Why would anyone want to serve if this is what they get in return? Catch a terrorist murderer and get court martialed?

So, let’s see: a one-day in-school suspension for “Kick a Jew Day” in Florida. But a court-martial for giving an Islamic terrorist multiple-murderer of Americans a fat lip. Only in America.

Give thanks tomorrow that we still have a free country. With “perspective” and “proportion” like this, it’s a wonder we still do.  What an outrage.

Pictures like these need to be published more often. As sick as they make me it is a necessary thing to have them shown as much as possible with any article having to do with the war on terror. The WTC being hit should also be more widely shown as well to keep the anger fresh.

Joe on November 25, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    they should just kill the terrorist, then his lawyers, then the judge

    ron on November 25, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    Then we should see the photos of the civilians who were raped and murdered at he hands of Blackwater men, dont you think?

    Ccook on November 25, 2009 at 9:09 pm

If the SEALs had given him the treatment those Americans got, it would have been justice. He deserved to have been burned to a crisp alive – and hung up for our enemies to see. They would have feared us. Instead, we only gave that psychopath a swollen lip. That’s a lesson in how NOT to deal with Muslim savages.

And now their impending trial is proof that mercy toward a barbarian shows how weakness gets punished severely. Now that is something our enemies understand – that we are too squeamish to give them the kind of response the truly evil deserve – to be wiped out without mercy as befits their nature.

NormanF on November 25, 2009 at 12:37 pm

I’ve worked with criminals a long time and find the prospect of the scumbags giving themselves a fat lip a likely scenario. All they have to do is bite themselves, or hit their face against a chair, window sill or any other handy object and walla! VICITIM!!

Joe on November 25, 2009 at 12:50 pm

Who says this is a free country? Free people do not have to ask permission to do anything, as long as it does not harm another, yet we need big brothers approval to do almost everything. Soon they will tax the air we exhale(tax n trade AKA the Obama carbon tax)… Soon, we will need permission to take a crap…

John Galt on November 25, 2009 at 1:03 pm

This is really pathetic. I mean does it get any worse? Become a soldier and get charged for doing your job. Yeah lets see if MSNBC or CNN cover this? Yeah, they will take the side of the terrorists.

CaliforniaScreaming on November 25, 2009 at 1:04 pm

Diversity, entitlements, and multi-culturalism will destroy the U.S. It is happening everywhere and at an accelerating pace. Will any public official stand up against the jihadist rats?

Mike on November 25, 2009 at 2:34 pm

Debbie, I heard Rush Limbaugh mention this post on his show this afternoon. Specifically, the photos you posted.

Mike from Dearborn on November 25, 2009 at 2:36 pm

Don’t let yourself be fooled. Not only could the terrorist have given himself a fat lip, he might have received the fat lip in Iraqi custody. They are notoriously less gentle than we are.

luagha on November 25, 2009 at 2:51 pm

Why am I not surprised it has come to this? I can’t believe how fast our ship is sinking. I honestly don’t know whether it is even possible to turn the tide at this point. I fear this will take a revolution.

SharonP on November 25, 2009 at 3:03 pm

This hearkens back to the Clinton era and the nefarious actions of one Rep. Patricia Schroeder – The Diva of Denver. She gave a huge push to the PC marxification of the Pentagon during that decade. It’s uncertain how many careers of good men that this harpy ultimately ruined but it was quite a few. The brass now in place there and at State and CIA are of sufficient mass to effectively and permanently entrench the traitors in US government. We have been in serious trouble for a while but this is painful to watch.

JLin on November 25, 2009 at 3:13 pm

These guys are professional soldiers, who probably plan to make service to our country their life’s work. Now, for capturing a HV target, alive and therefore able to be interrogated, their careers are in jeopardy. What message does this send to the other guys in their unit, and in the SPEC-OPS community?

“Whoops! Sorry, L-T….I tried to take him alive, but….”

Not that that is not a GREAT outcome, short-term….but it robs us of valuable intelligence on this little rat and his fellow vermin.

And so, makes us more vulnerable.

freddfish on November 25, 2009 at 3:15 pm

This is the guy that should be court-martialed:

“The SEAL leader reported the charge up the chain of command …”

I_AM_ME on November 25, 2009 at 3:42 pm

This is absolutely crazy. It is going to take a revolution at this point to save this country. Those of us that support these good men need to stand up and be counted. Enough is enough. I am almost glad that this administration is trying to look backwards and place the Bush administration on trial. It will have set precendent when we charge them with Treason.

HEH on November 25, 2009 at 3:55 pm

What concerns me regarding this subject matter, is will the seal units be diluted. What I mean, is will people in the US Navy think twice about joining the elite unit. And then the Seals might have to lower their standards just to get candidates in. And who knows what exactly occurred when the terrorist was captured. I don;t think he just came along peaceful…and sure there was some resistence. And a fat lip is not like he had the crap kicked out of while being in restraints. Seals and other specialize commando units go through a lot to achieve their objectives. It’s important to allow them some latitude when carrying out an operation.

Add in PC and the aforementioned and we can say goodbye to soldiers who want nothing but to sever our great nation. And then we’ll truly be in a sh*t storm which we can’t control or get of. The Obama Adminstration shouldn’t even consider allow these Seals being charged. Let our boys do their jobs without restraints on them.

Tenn Scholar on November 25, 2009 at 4:10 pm

Want to rid the world of nuclear weapons? Point them all to this region and let’s level the middle east. End of story.

Jim on November 25, 2009 at 4:32 pm

Well if this isn’t a lesson for all, the only good muzzy terrorist/insurgent is a dead one. Dead muzzys/so-called prisoners tell no tales.
If any of you wonder why us contractors are so bloody harsh? this is why!

Drakken on November 25, 2009 at 4:33 pm

    Drakken – I know I probably would have been court-martialed for the condition I would have handed over this muzzie. Too bad they wouldn’t be able to interrogate him for a month or so.

    Jarhead on November 25, 2009 at 5:55 pm

Montel eh? That must have been an ordeal. That pussy needs a take-down, big time.

Spiffo on November 25, 2009 at 4:35 pm

Anyone responsible for bringing these charges against our military heroes for something as ridiculous as this should be brought up on charges of treason for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Carla on November 25, 2009 at 4:41 pm

Thank you president OH-BUMMER. Hang on folks,it’s going to be a long painful ride with this guy.

a6ftldr on November 25, 2009 at 4:43 pm

    Don’t worry a6ftldr, The Obama will be out of a job Jan. 20, 2013. In less than one year we true Americans (read: Conservatives and Libertarians) are going to the polls and will give The Obama a big vote of NO CONFIDENCE.

    Bryan G. on November 25, 2009 at 4:48 pm

Keep getting the word out. It is time to stop this insanity. By the way, Spiffo, that post was really funny!

Ken Karmie on November 25, 2009 at 4:47 pm

Lets be PC to all Kill them first and then ask questions

Roger on November 25, 2009 at 4:53 pm

The lesson, boys and girls, is:


Carla on November 25, 2009 at 4:56 pm

Thank you for bringing these pics to the forefront of the discussion here. They are difficult, indeed, to see; however, it brings much clarity to the situation. How can we help the Seals? I want them to know the American people appreciate their work.

One post said that it’s going to take a revolution to save the country. I fear that person is right.

Mary on November 25, 2009 at 4:57 pm

How ridiculous can th obama administration get? I think that it is high time we started actions to impeach obama. He is obviously on the side of the terrorists, isn’t that treason? I hope every representative in this country including the terrorist sympathizing thugs at the white house are overloaded with outraged citizens demanding justice for our hero seals. I know I have contacted everyone I can think of. Please make sure everyone you know does everything that they can.

susan riegler on November 25, 2009 at 5:03 pm

I am appald that this is even considered against our men in uniform! What an insult to our navy seals! The guy who started this compalint of the pressoners handling should be on trial for this even coming to this level! Hell I would have broke both his arms if I was there, just for him to have something REAL to whine over.
After President “Our Big Ass Mistake America” or Obama for short, is out of office these guys should get a metal for their punch! If we can afford one with the way our national debt is going through the roof with our taxes!


Gerry of California on November 25, 2009 at 5:04 pm

Since we can no longer interrogate prisoners, why take tham prisoner? Better to expend a bullet and be done with the problem.
War is now the property of pussies?

nceeno on November 25, 2009 at 5:07 pm

    nceeno – just don’t forget to double tap the bastards.

    Jarhead on November 25, 2009 at 5:57 pm

The religion of peace®. Have you hugged a Muslim today?

DS_ROCKS! on November 25, 2009 at 5:11 pm

Every day there is some crazy action going on. People blog, email, post, have Tea Parties, protest, but when is there going to be ACTION? This insanity has got to stop.

dbinpv on November 25, 2009 at 5:38 pm

Maybe our attorney general will have the trial transferred to a federal court in New York City.

William W. Wittgen on November 25, 2009 at 5:42 pm

Fight back! Join your local Tea Party before the next “march on Washington.”

Carla on November 25, 2009 at 5:48 pm

    Excellent link! Scroll down and find your state and find your local group. Done.

    Pete on November 25, 2009 at 5:55 pm

Would we even be having this conversation if they had captured bin laden and given him a BIG FAT LIP!? I think not. We would be bombarded by the media with a grandstanding president about the brave men he claims to be the commander of…..


Pete on November 25, 2009 at 5:49 pm

Maybe some SEALS can take out the lawyers.

Lloyd on November 25, 2009 at 5:49 pm

Just the lawyers?

Carla on November 25, 2009 at 5:55 pm

mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm hey common everyone, who are you. you all voted Obama in. you wanted change. you wanted a better america. Here it is. stop complaining. mmmmm mmmmm maybe those guys who burnt these americans can be your new next door neighbor and we can bow to them when we see them. america loves everyone, forgive everyone. mmmmm

ruth on November 25, 2009 at 6:14 pm

Forget about the SEALS doing anything now. Go through the motions maybe. Doesn’t matter how the court martial ends up, just the charges are enough.

By the way, couldn’t the “detainee” have gotten the fat lip doing it to himself?

If you don’t stand behind your people, they won’t be around when you really need them.

oracle2world on November 25, 2009 at 6:16 pm

When I become president, the first thing I’ll do is pardon soldiers like these and hurry them back to the business of waterboarding these scumbag muslim terrorists. Then, the next time one of these killers claims that somebody pulled his hair or pinched him, I’ll pay him a personal visit and waterboard the bastard myself.

Duane on November 25, 2009 at 6:20 pm


Many thanks for casting light on this important story.
We should be placing these brave men on a pedestal and thanking them for their sense of honor and commitment. Instead we require them to retain counsel…truly unbelievable!
Our leaders have lost their way on nearly every issue.

Alpha Dog on November 25, 2009 at 6:27 pm

Typical warmongering right wing responses.

Yeah, what the Islamic extremists was ugly and I’m sorry for your loss, but Blackwater’s brutality and murder of innocent Iraqis got them in this situation, and got them expelled from Iraq.

That was PAYBACK, and Muslim extremists are serious about revenge. Maybe we should have shown a little more respect to citizens of a country we had no reason to invade to begin with.

This does not in any way excuse their murderous behavior, and just because Blackhawk, Aegis, Halliburton are on our side it does not excuse their behavior either.

Regats on November 25, 2009 at 6:36 pm

Some one should organize a donation program with national exposure to pay these three Seals massive legal bills, ANYONE? suggestions?
I am ex navy ( not a seal ) during Korean police action, and will pledge to donate to such a fund if it can be done

MOL on November 25, 2009 at 6:39 pm

REGATS! Payback for what?
DO you not realize that they have been at war with western civilizations for a millennium
Wt one, W T 2, The U S S Cole, Ft Dix, Ft Hood,

MOL on November 25, 2009 at 6:45 pm

    Well, if you want to go back that far, does the Spanish Inquisition ring a bell?

    Those idiots don’t know how to move on, as we have when, only fifty years after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and Hitler bombed our allies, we’ve become friends and allies with the former Axis powers. Russia, even.

    If we understood their mindset (forget it – we’re not about to change it) the terrorism on BOTH sides might be averted. It’s not about political correctness. It’s about common sense, which was sadly lacking in the Bush administration.

    Regats on November 25, 2009 at 7:03 pm

What a bizarre development! I have been trying to think of historical parallels, and several come to mind: during the 1790s in the French Revolution, under the Reign of Terror, crazed zealots wantonly killed their enemies including people who had tried to move the country forward. Similarly, under the Russian Revolution, progressives and even some moderate socialists were jailed and then, ultimately killed.

For the most part, things have not descended to that level here in the U.S. But it is the same mentality; anyone who opposes the new order is automatically treated as a criminal. If left unchecked, the penalties will mount, and the zealots will act with more and more abandon.

Little Al on November 25, 2009 at 6:48 pm

If this makes you mad as hell (and it should), VOTE at EVERY election (local to national) and throw those Fascist liberal bastards out of office – from the Park Board to the POTUS!! Get rid of EVERY SOCIALIST PIG IN OFFICE!! God bless my brave brothers and sisters who still serve and God bless America!

Dave on November 25, 2009 at 6:49 pm

Kudo’s Schlussel!…for exposing what the Orwellian state-run media won’t. The “pussy-purse lefties” will ignore and/or, find a reason to blame America, just to save face…

Patrick on November 25, 2009 at 6:50 pm

We should rally around another tea party in D.C. that’s for sure but how about if we expose our teeth this time?????? For the next tea party everyone needs to bring their own party favors. Those favors would include: AR-15’s – M1A’s – AK47’s – AK74’s – SKS’s – M44’s – Dragunov’s – 9mm’s – .40cal’s – .45ACP’s.

Nobody has to fire a shot. The message that we would send to the communists will have them pissing down both legs!!!!

Doug on November 25, 2009 at 6:53 pm

For Gosh Almighty- We are at WAR. War Is Hell. It’s either Kill or be Killed. We cannot limit or constrain our soldiers under these circumstances. Political Correctness should not be a consideration or an issue. Politicians should stay out of it altogether and let the General manage the war.

RobDunc on November 25, 2009 at 6:54 pm

Do you remember when 911 happened and the whining Democrats were saying why didn’t Bush do something and stirred up public distrust? Then when he did the goddamn Democrats started crap about armor in the Humvee, which were only designed to replace the jeep,never meant to be personnel transport.Also remember that almost all of them voted to go to war and voted for Patriot Act, except kiss ass Obama. YOU VOTED FOR CHANGE and YOU GOT IT! I know there are people out there who are outraged by this and voted for him. You can’t say you didn’t know how this president felt. He has never taken a stand for this country and you were warned. I feel for the families of these men. Americans need to grow some balls again. How do you feel New York about the Mastermind of 911 coming back? Be sure to thank Obama!

Micheal May on November 25, 2009 at 6:59 pm

It’s too bad that Gen. Patton isn’t in charge of our military – he’d have taken care of “Fallujah” in a manner suitable to the actions of these DEMONIC CREATURES – the pictures here show a level of depravity that makes calling the perpetrators “animals” too insulting to real members of the animal kingdom to even use that term when referring to them!

I’m “sorry”, but even the mutants appearing in these pictures as “children” would not have survived had JUSTICE been meted out here…..they too are “celebrating” – and they are old enough to know EVIL when they see it! (Would YOUR children “celebrate” actions such as these, that they had WITNESSED BEING DONE???)

People, we have got to realize that there ARE “people” who are this SAVAGE in the world, and NOTHING but a bullet is going to change them….no matter how much “hopey-changey” CRAP you spew at them, THEY ARE NOT GOING TO CHANGE, because their “god” TELLS THEM THEY’RE RIGHT to “kill unbelievers”.

Islam WILL NOT have a “reformation” because its adherents believe that the koran is the LITERAL revelation from “allah’s” own mouth – and if that is its origin, then “allah” would be going against himself by allowing any changes in it, and THAT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!!!

Chisco on November 25, 2009 at 7:00 pm

Our government commits one outrage after another to the point that we are numb.Is there any outrage they can do more? What will it take to get us to act? All I want to know is where do we start forming up and organizing resistance?

Les on November 25, 2009 at 7:09 pm

Folks just keep your ammo dry , and your bibles near
and keep our troops in your prayers , and keep a list
of all the ones that are cowards in our congress . That
list may come in handy someday /////
