If you think this story is from The Onion, you would be wrong. Even satirists wouldn't make up a story this wrong. Three Navy Seals are facing charges for 'roughing up' a terrorist they were assigned to capture. The captive, Ahmed Hasim Abed, is the alleged mastermind of the mutilation and deaths of four Blackwater security guards in 2004 (see photo above). The terrorist allegedly had a fat lip. They could face up to a year of incarceration.
(CNSNews.com) – The Navy Seals facing court martial for the alleged abuse of a terror suspect arrested for killing four Americans face up to a year in military confinement, discharge for bad conduct, and forfeiture of two-thirds of their pay for a year, if convicted, according to defense attorneys.[...]
The three Navy Seals--Matthew McCabe, Jonathon Keefe, and Julio Huertas--will be arraigned on Monday in Norfolk, Va. They are facing a special court martial--which is equivalent to a misdemeanor charge--and have each denied the allegations of abuse and cover-up.
Update: By the way, inventing claims of abuse is in the Al Qaeda Handbook.
