    Awesome. I saw on FOX News last night, that the first guy plans to re-enlist. Now that's a professional!

    I hope these guys are feeling the level of support that they have.

    Outstanding! Two free, one to go. Perhaps the Navy will see the writing on the wall and dismiss the charges against the third SEAL and save themselves some time, money and embarrassment.

    The whole idea of court-martialing combat solders for being combat solders just leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

    I certainly hope that they all are acquitted.

    SEAL found not guilty of assaulting suspected Iraqi terrorist

    By Kate Wiltrout

    A military jury has found a Navy SEAL not guilty of abusing a suspected Iraqi terrorist in U.S. custody in Iraq.

    Lawyers concluded their arguments this afternoon in the case of Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe. He was charged with assault for allegedly punching Ahmed Hashim Abed, the suspected mastermind of an attack in Fallujah that killed four Blackwater contractors.

    Two other SEALs have been cleared of wrongdoing. The prosecutions of the three have drawn widespread protests.

    The lead prosecutor in the case, Lt. Cmdr. Jason Grover, urged the jury, “Don’t be blinded by medals or what someone’s got on his chest. Everyone is equally accountable to do the right thing.”

    Defense attorney Haytham Faraj argued that for McCabe to be guilty, everyone who testified in the case – with the exception of Abed and the Navy master-at-arms who was guarding him – would have to be lying.

    “They’re professionals,” he said of the SEALs who backed McCabe. “They belong to your tribe and they do things right.”

    The seven-member jury consisted of three enlisted sailors and four officers. For McCabe to have been convicted, at least five would have had to found him guilty.

    YEAH!
    I know what you're thinking: "Did he fire six shots or only five?" "Is that a Smith & Wesson 686+ 7 shot or 627 8 shot?" "Does he have a concealed Sig P226 SCT and two spare mags?" You've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?
