Navy SEAL's Trial Moved To Iraq

Something seems amiss here, moving the trial of an American fighting man to foreign shores while at the same time bringing enemy terrorist here to put them on trial. The Navy has decided to move the trial of a Navy SEAL from Virginia to Camp Victory in Iraq. The reason given is that Navy prosecutors would not bring the Iraqi terrorist, who is the accuser in this case, to America to testify against the against Jonathan Keefe the Navy SEAL in this case. What goes here? The SEAL and the court must be moved to Iraq instead of bringing the terrorist here to testify. Our great leader could easily overrule this silly procedure, but he will not. Its easy for him to order terrorist to this country and give them full rights in civil courts. But when it comes to our troops, our men in uniform, well he just doesn't give a sh*t! This is our new "Coward-in-Chief" for he is most certainly not a true "Commander-in-Chief.

The SEAL's should have never had to face military justice. The so-called justice is an injustice and a slap in the face of every serviceman and woman serving this country. And sadly our "Coward-in-Chief" sits by and does nothing, if fact this is done with the full blessing of the bastard in the Oval Office. In the end, the SEAL's should be given medals and the guy in the Oval Office should be given the boot!

A Navy SEAL accused in the mistreatment of an Iraqi detainee will be tried in a U.S. military court in Iraq.

A military judge in Virginia on Monday set the court-martial of Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe for April 6 at Camp Victory, site of the alleged abuse.

Keefe and another SEAL are accused of trying to cover up after a third SEAL allegedly punched an Iraqi suspected in a 2004 ambush that killed four U.S. security contractors.

Prosecutors said they would not bring the detainee to Norfolk to testify. The judge ruled Keefe has the right to face his accuser and moved his trial. Keefe is from Yorktown, Va.

The three SEALs have received an outpouring of public support, including the backing of several members of Congress. read more from FOX

The whole friggin' world's upside down with this administration. All day closed door meetings in the White House constitute "transparency." The CIA gets prosecuted for doing its job. Terrorists are not terrorists, but our own American fighters are.

The damage Obozo is doing is incredible.

John Carey said...

This is absolutely insane! I've said it before and I'll say it again, we are now living on the planet bazzaro where right is wrong, up is down, and bloack is white. This adminstration is destroying fabric of this country a piece at a time.

Debbie said...

I heard this yesterday and should have been surprised, but no. Everything is turned upside down.

The seals should not be on trial to begin with; terrorists should be tried away from US soil; and these seals should be tried here so that all the information can get out in the press and on the internet. People should be outraged.

Right Truth

Why are these guys even on trial?

It's a joke!

This case really aggrivates me to the extent I haven't written about it on my blog because I fear of losing my Christianity.

Teresa said...

I agree with Snarky. This administration's view of the world is upside down. Coward-in-Chief fits Obambi quite well. He is an appeaser to the terrorists. He needs to be dethroned. He is a disgrace to this nation. These Navy Seals merely did their jobs. If the Terrorist couldn't be moved to the U.S. than the charges should have been dropped immediately. Why are we accommadating terrorists?

I lay the fault at the feet of Adm. Mullen. He could put a stop to it but doesn't.

Dominique said...

You're right. This makes no sense. I am absolutely flummoxed as to what possible reasoning could be used for justify this?

Matt said...

I agree with Snarky as well.

I also think, and ask myself if this is how it was for folks living in the Soviet Union? Dear Leader tells us all one thing, and reality tells us another?

The RoEs by which our BEST must abide have endangered them-
Marcus Luttrell _Lone Survivor_expressed a similar view - during a speech a year or so ago...

I don't know about you all-but-I'm getting fed up with PC putting our troops in jeopardy...

MK said...

Funny how the wanker leading your fine nation can't survive without a teleprompter, yet he's never heard of video conferencing. It's really that easy to get evidence from someone else where, just wake his dumbass up and drag him to a camera nearby.

But then an opportunity to kick the troops in the teeth will be missed won't it.

Mr Pink Eyes said...

So let me get this straight. We can bring terrorists here to give them a trial with constitutional rights, but we can not bring a terrorist here in the trial of the Navy SEALs? Am I missing something? How can the president justify this?

Dave West said...

It makes as much sense as anything our government does. The rules of engagement are killing us. Now our Seals have to worry about going on trial for doing their job. Washington is making it so that you are better off just killing any suspect, because they can just make stuff up and their word carries more weight than yours.

This is sickening news, Ron, I agree with Snarky, it's like a bad dream of a psychotic!

I totally agree with your sentence too.." In the end, the SEAL's should be given medals and the guy in the Oval Office should be given the boot!"

God Help America. It never ends with this criminal (obummer).

What do you expect from
a Muslim in the White House?
The mullah obamaham is a traitor
to our men and women in the armed
forces. This entire trial is
sham. Just like the group of
racists and islamists that are
now in power in the swamp.
