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
