Navy Seals Charged For Fat Lip On Terrorist

Attorney for one of the three Navy SEALs

Navy SEALS May Go to Prison for Giving a Fat Lip to Islamic Terrorist


by Jim O'Neil

Jim O'Neil was born in June of 1951 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Jim O’Neill proudly served in the U.S. Navy from 1970-1974 in both UDT-21 (Underwater Demolition Team) and SEAL Team Two.

On March 31, 2004, a small convoy guarded by four American civilian contractors was ambushed at Fallujah, Iraq, and the guards were killed. The bodies of the four Blackwater security guards were burnt, hacked, and two of the mutilated bodies were hung for display on a bridge over the Euphrates river.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that in ” a macabre and murderous town fete, locals cheered as one corpse was attached to a car tow rope and pulled triumphantly up and down the main road….”

The article noted that “In terms of its sheer bestial violence, the attack on the Blackwater operatives was unprecedented….”

The ambush, and desecration of the bodies were all videotaped by Islamic extremists, and subsequently disseminated world-wide as anti-American propaganda.

This incident, believed to have been planned by Ahmed Hashim Abed, is widely held to have led directly to the first Battle of Fallujuh, that began four days after the guards were murdered.

All four of the American guards worked for Blackwater, out of Moyock, N.C. Blackwater (now called Xe—pronounced “zi”) was founded in 1997 by former Navy SEALs, Eric Prince, and Al Clark, (Clark later left to start Special Tactical Services).

One of the murdered guards, Scott Helvenston, was also a former SEAL.

In 2007, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, headed by Henry Waxman (D-CA), laid all of the blame for the slaughter at Blackwater’s doorstep. Their report does not mention Islam, terrorists, Muslim extremists, war, radicals, insurgents, or atrocity.

Reading the House report, one could be excused for thinking that the Blackwater operatives ambushed themselves.

This past September, the purported leader of the Fallujah ambush—“one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq”— was captured by Navy SEALs.

Ahmed Hashim Abed, code named “Objective Amber,” was briefly held at Camp Baharia (Dreamland), a Marine base adjacent to the main compound of Camp Fallujah, located about 2 miles southwest of the city. (Source)

Ahmed Abed alleges that while under the watch of Navy SEALs, he was punched, and suffered a bloody lip. Three SEALs are now facing court-martial charges.

A court-martial is defined as “a military court to try members of the armed services who are accused of serious breaches of martial (military) law.”

The three SEALs have turned down the opportunity for a captain’s mast (also known as an admiral’s mast, or flag mast), which is not a trial, but a non-judicial discipline hearing.

Perhaps they are curious about the Pentagon’s pusillanimous pandering to political correctness. Or perhaps they would like to see real proof of their CIC’s citizenship.

Whatever their reasons, I salute their bravery, and service to our country—as I’m sure all patriotic Americans do as well.

Wild Thing's comment.......

How are we to fight the broader war of Islamo-terrorism if we are so blind to see the restraints within our midst? It is the political correctness straight jacket of the Left (and their political dupes) that has infected this nation's ability to survive. It has caused the Twin Towers destruction and the Fort Hood massacre. These terrorists are being treated with kid gloves on the battlefield at the sacrifice of our fighting heroes. It has infused itself into the military culture like a cancer. Political correctness has allowed our precious heroes to fight with both hands tied behind their backs. Every human rights group in the world follows them around looking for the one bullet shot that looks like a war crime. Every action is weighed and scrutinized as we force our fighting heroes to measure their actions for possible war crimes prosecution. May God help us!

This political correctness is costing us more than the Fort Hood massacre. It is influencing the way we wage this war against Islamic terrorist who want to kill every American they can.

And every time Obama opens his mouth, the entire world is aghast at the dismal leadership we have placed in the position of Commander in Chief.

As wrong as these charges are for the SEALs; think of what it will do to America. What good, smart person will even want to consider joining a SPECOPS unit if he could be facing this asinine mentality? This move, like the NYC terror trials will come back to haunt us, badly I fear. And, our enemy had better be damned careful because from now on in, I would think that any thinking military person, seeing the proper opportunity will do the right thing and shoot these muslim bastards in the face when they first resist. Why capture them if they will only have to endure a dinner at the table of barack HUSSEIN long legged mack daddy Obummer.
GOD bless our SPECOPs troops, and GOD save the USA!

Do you want to know the entire story of the fight to free Fallujah? Watch for "New Dawn" on store book shelves in May.

"And, our enemy had better be damned careful because from now on in, I would think that any thinking military person, seeing the proper opportunity will do the right thing and shoot these muslim bastards in the face when they first resist."

I agree and have said basically the same thing over and over. Grant them their wish and dispatch them immediately to meet their Allah.

I have no doubt that lots of our troops are thinking exacty what is expressed in the letters above. We thought we had it bad in Vietnam, but at least we could slap captured enemy around and work them over to gain information, or just because they were assholes. Dittos WWII and Korea. Now the PC police are running the military from their safe confines and telling the fighting men how to run their operations.

Crap like this leads me to believe that if there was another revolution in America that the fighting point of our military would support it.

Simply, reported " Fire fight, this sector, no Prisoners, all enemy KIA." This won't be the first time this has ever happened.
