Two of the three Navy SEALs, NOT GUILTY.

BACKGROUND:

A Navy SEAL team was dispatched to apprehend a terrorist Ahmed Hashim Abed,  who was was allegedly the mastermind behind the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater security guards.   At great peril to themselves, these brave young servicemen went into hostile territory and brought him in alive.  At some point “ALLEGEDLY” one of the YOUNG Navy SEALS punched the prisoner.  Another serviceman made a complaint to his superior, and the SEALs were questioned.  Subsequently, the SEALs were told they would be subjected to a Captain’s Mast, which could have harmed their careers, so they declined it.  The cases were then brought forward under a Court Martial.

FINDINGS:
A military judge  Friday found Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe, NOT GUILTY.
Petty Officer 1st Class Julio Huertas, was found NOT GUILTY on Thursday. 

Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe will be tried May 3, 2010, in Norfolk, Virginia. Please continue to support these three SEALs!!!
