Don't accuse me of sticking up for the enemy; that is a cheap shot, because it is not what I did. I simply asked for more information about the story. Navy Seals are expected to show discipline and obey orders. Did they punch the guy (or not) in the heat of battle, in the process of capturing him? Or did they do it later, while he was in detention or while he was being interrogated? Big difference, but that was not at all clear. And what's a punch in the gut got to do with a bloody lip? If you don't know the answer, just say so. Why wasn't the whole unit charged? Why only three? Surely there was SOME basis for questioning their behavior, or the whole chain of command above them are idiots.

Your post is an orgy of stultifying cacophonous verbal depravity; an exercise in literary impotence, and an offense to all of good taste and decency.

I have no idea what you are getting at. But if you re-read the whole thread, a few times or only once, you will see that I now agree the charges were trumped up and should never have been brought in the first place.
There were two issues implicitly under discussion: (1) Did the Seals beat up on the guy in detention, when they were supposed to be guarding him? And (2) if they did beat up on him when they were guarding him, was it OK to do so because he was a bad guy? The answer to (1), per the juries, is no. The answer to (2) is, in your opinion, what?????

I started this thread and you know what? I'm tired of all this political horse crap! This is BS, plain and simple! I don't agree with your statement. Like it or not, the Dem's control everything right now. I'm sure that will change come November. Like it or not, BHO is the President and Commander in Chief. I'm positive that will change with the next election. To say that these people love our ememies more than US citizens is wrong!
