Navy SEAL Found Not Guilty of Assaulting a Suspected Terrorist

Happy hour starts in 5 minutes



What a waste of time and resources. And all because poor little achmed claimed he was abused. I'm glad these guys fought the stupidity


A Virginia military jury found a Navy SEAL not guilty Thursday on all charges he punched an Iraqi suspected in the 2004 killings of four U.S. contractors in Fallujah.

"I'm really happy right now," Matthew McCabe, the Navy SEAL, told Fox News shortly after hearing the outcome of the court martial. "It's an amazing feeling. I'm on cloud nine right now."

McCabe, a special operations petty officer second class, called the proceedings "troubling at times," adding "having your career on the line is not an easy thing to handle.

McCabe was the third and final Navy SEAL to be prosecuted in the case. He had faced charges of assault, making a false official statement and dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee. McCabe was accused of punching last year is Ahmed Hashim Abed, the suspected mastermind of the grisly killings six years ago.

Good to see there is some justice in this world...BUT!!!...the charges should never have been brought against these soldiers in the 1st place.

Elephant you put it all in a nutshell...no way should these three heroes should ever been charged.

Been interesting watching local news to see the number of supporters out side the Naval Base in Norfolk. Glad all there were acquitted. Now maybe they can get on with their lives and jobs.
