Outrage: Navy SEALS face assault charges for punching a most wanted terrorist

If this doesn’t infuriate you, then I don’t know what will. These men are heroes, but in the newer, hopier, changier United States, heroes who capture a most-wanted terrorist responsible for the brutal murders of four Americans are charged with assault… for punching him in the lip.

Three Navy SEALS caught Ahmed Ashim Habed, the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Americans in Fallujah in 2004. Apparently, he got punched in the lip — and they’re now facing criminal charges.

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, sources told FoxNews.com.

The three, all members of the Navy’s elite commando unit, have refused non-judicial punishment — called a captain’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.

… 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.

So, let me get this straight. Some Navy Seals capture a jihadist terrorist monster responsible for killing for Americans working for Blackwater and the mutilation of their bodies. He’s the guy responsible for this:


They punch him and give him a bloody lip, and that’s considered assault and they get a court marshal. This guy deserves much worse than a bloody lip, and these SEALS should be getting nothing but congratulations and accolades right now. It is a travesty that this could be happening during a war. I somehow think that, once upon a time, giving an enemy combatant (especially a savage like Abed) a bloody lip would be considered absolutely normal, and certainly not something to be frowned upon. I might just be a bloody neo-conservative warmonger and all, but I seem to get the idea that in war, the enemies should be roughed up. What is it with this new, touchier, feelier America?

So the guy got a freakin’ bloody lip. So what?? I’m pretty sure he’ll live. Unfortunately we can’t say the same for the Americans he had brutally and savagely murdered. Did the Department of Defense (and the Obama administration) just forget about that? This really does piss me off, and it should piss you off too. This should not be happening. We are at war, with a savage, bloodthirsty enemy that will stop at nothing to kill us. And even the Department of Defense wants to pussyfoot around one of the most wanted terrorists that these heroes were able to capture? I haven’t heard of such a gross miscarriage of justice since Ramos and Compean were arrested.

I’ll let Uncle Jimbo have the last word.

Let me explain something to you amigo. That wrist slap would be a career-ender in Spec Ops for these men. You understand? We take three guys who accomplish more in a lazy afternoon than you have in your entire anonymous, snarking-from-the-sideline, existence and we put them out of work making dead tangos. And that sounds like what should have happened to this ass clown. If he dies during the take down we have no problems.

I know you have no earthly clue just how god-awful complicated it is to actually perform a raid and scarf up a bad guy, let’s just say it rates up there with trying to conduct a Beethoven Symphony with your orchestra in free fall, screaming towards Earth like a phalanx of freaking lawn darts. That is why we like to send a f**king Hellfire down on them and last time I checked that leaves a little more than a G** damn bloody lip. And yes I am saying I don’t care if he got it once he got to base. What if the guy who clocked his murderous ass knew Scott Helverson, who this bastard helped kill, burn and then defile his corpse? Do you really want to be on record saying he should be made an example of? Do you remember what Kos said about the four men this scumbag killed you dumbass? I’ll remind you “F**k them”. You are sure in illustrious company.

    Sentence the guy who punched him to more PT. All the baddie got was a fat lip? He should be spitting teeth FFS!

    America you cannot win. Your enemy is willing to saw off heads, shoot fleeing children in the back, (the Beslan massacre), and blow up hospitals. You guys prosecute your own men over an owie. It’ll take decades but they will eventually grind you down.

    They should have just brought him back in a body bag.

    That’s pathetic! It’s a WAR, not a police action. People DIE every day, you don’t see marines getting charged for murder.
