Justice For All Three Navy SEALs

Matthew McCabe is a free man, reports Fox News:

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.
Also charged in this fucking fiasco were Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe, SO-2 and Petty Officer Julio Huertas, SO-1, both of whom have also been found not guilty.

So it seems this was just another case of a terrorist asshole gaming the military system and the bleeding heart PC cranks running it from the top. You know: the same PC cranks who didn't stop the Fort Hood massacre because they were Politically Correct Cowards.

I agree with Drew M. over at AoSHQ: give these men some leave, then set them free to go out and kill some more of these bastards.

Lots more.

Glenn Reynolds:
They were betting on Navy SEALs wimping out. How smart was that? And now we know to regard future charges with skepticism.
