Perhaps you have heard the story about the court martial of three Navy SEALs accused of “mistreating” a terrorist. Yeah, it has come to this. Well, Human Events has an online petition up on their site asking Defense Secretary Robert Gates to dismiss these ridiculous charges. Michelle Malkin has the story:
Human Events has posted a petition to free the Navy SEALs who’ve been hauled up for court martials after an infamous jihadi in Iraq (the same one who masterminded the ambush of Blackwater contractors whose bodies were burned and hung on a bridge in Fallujah) accused them of punching him in the stomach during a raid earlier this fall. You can sign here. Members of Congress have called on Secretary Gates to intervene as well.
Note the highlighted portion. The SEALs are charged with punching a known terrorist in the stomach. This is what stands for “mistreatment” in our country now. Personally, I think the terrorist is lucky to be alive, but what do I know? I’m just a knucklehead blogger who wants to give our troops the benefit of the doubt. If you feel the same way, click the link above and sign the petition. They deserve your support.
