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.

This is for regats and cook.
Blackwater never has murdered or raped anyone,, we kill the muzzy bastards pure and simple, if that offends your liberal sensetivities you can go f-ck yourselves. If you side with the enemy, that makes you the enemy period.

    In Texas we have a “one rope fits all” policy for Terrorists.

    Terrorists, if you murder anyone in Texas we are going to murder you right back.

former president bush and his crew are reponsible for the mess we are in. i supported the afghanistan operation at the time it commenced. but before we finished the job in afghanistan, bush got us into a bigger mess with the iraq war, spreading our resources to thin. we should have finished with afghanistan first, then go into iraq. saddam wasnt going anywhere, and would have been there when we got to them.

This is an outrage, if we could get rid of the media and the lawyers and let our guys go in and do the job they were trained to do, we could end these wars in 6 months or less.

Until a sufficient percentage of voters have had enough of hussein and his party’s anti-U.S. policies, we can expect a lot more of the same.

Here’s hoping for the 2010 elections.

Whoever brought the charges against the Seals should be send to Iraq, in the front lines to see who else they can get to punish for doing their job. Too bad the Seals didn’t cut Abed’s throat after they capture him. That’s Congress and their new laws. Vote them all out of office don’t need those kind of people running our country.

The lily livers in this Country should all be required to spend time in a war zone. To punish our Navy Seals for something so trivial as a “punch” against what these pigs do;lopping off heads, hanging, and burning, then dragging the bodies through streets. Did anybody ask WHY the terrorist got punched? I’m sure that he more than deserved it. If these Seals are convicted of a crime, we need to start replacing the ones that had a hand in it!

Gwendolyn DeKoning on December 2, 2009 at 10:36 pm

Our Leaders, Admirals and Generals of all the services have no guts today. They are all so Politically Correct and fearful of reprimand from the civilian overseers of the Military, such as the Commander-in-Chief, Department of Defense, Secretary of the Services that they have thrown our personnel into the hands of the Judge Avocate General which is full of Prosecutors who are apparently on the enemies side. We send our volunteers into a cesspool and then prosecute them for killing the Muslim SOB’s we sent them to kill. It is sickening!!!! No Gut Military today!!!

CDR Oscar Schaer, USN Ret on December 3, 2009 at 3:50 pm

    CDR Schaer,
    You hit the nail on the head. What kind of lowlife can send a man into harm’s way and they prosecute him for responding.

    Larry Walker on January 3, 2014 at 8:54 am

Does anybody know how we can help these guys? I hope they are with family.

Dan Gabrielson on December 7, 2009 at 9:48 am

get involved. I signed a petition you all should as well.
Here is the link to a site set up to help OUR BRAVE SEALS!!!! These charges against them are a F**cking Joke!!

Jordan Parker on December 8, 2009 at 1:23 am

Debbie Schlussel, you are a great correspondent and I want to give you kudos for posting the pictures at the top of this article. It appears our Commander in Chief (vomit) and his military brass have lost their balls/gonads/guts and sacrificed them up to the politically correct ACLU gods. (You notice I didn’t capitalize gods, because the ACLU worships false prophets!).
I hope you don’t mind but I right-clicked and copied the pictures to my hard drive so I can send them to any & all persons who might have “any” balls left who can influence the “atrocity of putting our NAVY SEAL HERO’S on trial”. I want to remind “those in power” what kind of animals we are fighting. They aren’t even human if they can celebrate what they did that day in Fallujah. Our troops should be given medals of Honor for capturing these animals; and should be encouraged to kill them on the battlefield if the animals don’t give up any useful intelligence to help capture other enemy animals. I’m fed up with this PC B.S. I know this can go down against the SEALS because of the Border Agents who were imprisoned for doing their jobs. I lost all respect for President Bush when he didn’t pardon them the moment they were charged. I don’t want to see the same thing happen to our SEALS.
Debbie, what can I do to help? Who do I send emails to? Who is responsible for this? How can I make my outrage heard? I want to rage against this injustice of ANY charge against our NAVY SEAL’S, just tell me who to send it to!
