“You want to be Commander-in-Chief? You can start by standing up for the men and women who wear the uniform of the United States, even when it’s not politically convenient.”
When it was "politically incorrect" with his liberal base, President Obama refused to support three Navy SEALS who were accused, by the Falluja contractor massacre mastermind, of punching a him during his capture. The terrorist wasn't even injured. The SEALS were also accused of a coverup. If President Obama really supported the military, he would have given these SEALS a medal. Instead, he let them suffer through a several months long prosecution before all three were exonerated.
(CNN)- Three U.S. Navy SEALs face criminal charges after the alleged mastermind of one of the most notorious crimes against Americans in Iraq accused them of punching him after his capture, the military said Wednesday.
Ahmed Hashim Abed -- thought to be behind the slayings and mutilation of four U.S. contractors in Falluja in 2004 and captured in summer -- made the accusations against the three servicemen, said Lt. Col. Holly Silkman, a spokeswoman for U.S. Central Command.
A civilian lawyer for one of three SEALs said his client and the other SEALs declined a nonjudicial resolution to the case, a step sometimes called a "captain's mast." The servicemen say they did not harm the detainee in any way and they want their names cleared in a court-martial so they can continue their careers in the Navy, said the attorney, Neil Puckett.
