Stand With Dan Burton! Save Ouor Navy SEALs!

You Can Sign the petition to send a message that you stand with Dan and the 3 Navy SEALs for defending America.


Petition to Adm. Gary Roughead, Chief of Naval Operations:

Dear Adm. Roughead:
In a heroic action on the night of September 3, Navy SEALs captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq, Ahmed Hashim Abed. Abed is believed to be the man behind the barbaric attack in Fallujah in 2004 in which four Blackwater security guards were ambushed, their bodies mutilated, and then hung from a bridge.

Now, because Abed complained that someone smacked him in the face after he was captured (he apparently exhibited a bloody lip), three of the SEALs – Matthew McCabe, Jonathan Keefe and Julio Huertas – are facing a January court martial for prisoner abuse (or making false statements to conceal it.)

SEALs are characterized by bravery, skill, and honor. They operate under stressful conditions that we cannot even imagine. And in this war – against a ruthless, implacable and barbaric enemy – we believe that their conduct must be judged in that context.
You, as Chief of Naval Operations, have the ability to prevent these men from facing disciplinary action that would end their careers and – we firmly believe – destroy the morale of all our Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force special operators.
Please take action immediately to dismiss these charges and restore these men to duty with honor.

Wild Thing's comment......

I am signing every one of these petitions for our Navy SEALs. Somehow we have got to get through to the people in charge to stop this insanity!!!

We have got to stand strong on this or they will do this to every one of our troops.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

They offered the Seals Non-judicial Punishment, Art. 115, which the accused automatically plead guilty. They refused. Ok. So how do we get from a NON judicial punishment, of Captain Mast or In the Marines "Office Hours"(before the 'Old Man') to a something like a Special or even a General Court Martial. This is pure Bullshit. A fight in the slopchute gets maybe two weeks restriction and pay for the damages, at best. At least it used to.

I looked up the Courts Martial to see what has changed in 45 years. According to what I found, Nothing has changed.

They're still 3 Courts Martial , Summary, Special and General. According to the Lawyer on Hannity, there would be a jury of peers. In none of these courts martial is there anything about peers.

The General which is reserved for serious offenses, they can have a 5 Member panel and a judge, but these are usually reserved to where prison time is involved or the death penalty.

In none of these is there a requirement of the vote to be in agreement, i.e., 5-0 guilty but any majority vote will find the defendant guilty. Special and General usually have: BCD's or DD, and Brig time, hard labor or all three. Death Penalty being the serious.

So I haven't a clue what is happening to these Sailors except it sure looks like they are being railroaded through a Kangaroo Court.

Maybe, the Navy has lost control of this and if it has this is a shame. Because it sure sounds like the White House is driving this.

This is no way to encourage Re-enlistments.

What I have heard is pure Scuttlebutt but I seems possible. It goes back to the rescue of
the ship captain from the Somali pirates. The top of the food chain was supposedly PO
over the shooting of the pirates. Why?? So the speculation is this is pay back. Really??
Fearless Leader took credit for the shooting to gain public support. Of course!! Factoid
the charges were not brought by US Naval Special warfare Command. So something is
Rotten here and it’s not fish. I see political correctness gone mad. Could Eric Holder
Be pushing this??

the SEALs know about all these petitions
