    What a fucking pussy.

    FOXNews.com - GOP Reps. Want Charges Dropped Against SEALs Accused of Abusing Terror Suspect

    Two Republican lawmakers are seeking to have charges dropped against three Navy SEALs facing court-martial for accusations of abusing a terror suspect arrested for an ambush killing of U.S. contractors in Iraq.

    The SEALs -- Special Warfare Operators 2nd Class Matthew McCabe and Jonathan Keefe and Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Julio Huertas -- were part of a team that in September 2009 captured Ahmed Hashim Abed, the Al Qaeda terrorist behind the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA contractors in Fallujah in 2004.

    The contractors' bodies were burned and left hanging from a bridge. The image came to symbolize the rise of Al Qaeda in Iraq and the brutality of the enemy Americans face there.

    McCabe is accused of punching Abed in the stomach and giving him a bloody lip during the arrest.

    Other countries of the world have got to be laughing their asses off at the US because we are making such a big deal out of slapping a terrorist prisoner around a little bit. I'm sure they view us as idiots for even discussing it. If anything, those Seals need to be praised.

    Those seals deserve medals for capturing this terrorist.

    As usual liberals/progressives side with the terrorists.

    Well, Eric Holder has appointed 9 lawyers who defended Gitmo detainees to the Justice Dept. What do you expect from these people? And, they're so damned scared, they won't even name 7 of them.

    Some above do not understand how a court-martial convening authority operates and what the procedures are that govern the authority. The chain of command of the accused have levied charges pending investigation. The next step, if it has not happened already, is an Article 32 hearing.

    "My 40 colleagues in Congress and I are asking that the charges be dropped immediately, and for the Navy SEALs to be restored to their capacity within the Special Forces so they can continue the heroic business of fighting our nation's most wanted enemies," Burton said in a statement released at the time.

    Cleveland defended the court-martial in a response to Burton writing, "The abuse of a detainee, no matter how minor, creates strategic repercussions that harm our nation's security and ultimately costs the lives of U.S. citizens."

    Ridiculous.
