Navy Seals Face Court Martial After Ringleader Of Brutal Attack On Americans Gets Bloody Lip (Update 12-4-09)

Three Navy Seals, part of a team that captured the ringleader of those responsible for the brutal murder of four US Blackwater contractors in Fallujah Iraq in 2004, are facing court martial after the man complained to Iraqi authorities he suffered a “bloody lip” while in the custody of the Americans.

A bloody lip.

On March 31, 2004 four private Blackwater security contractors, transporting supplies for a catering company, get lost and end up driving through the center of Fallujah, one of the most dangerous hostile cities in Iraq at the time. Shortly after entering the city they get stuck in traffic and their small unprotected convoy was pounced upon and ambushed.

The Americans now trapped with no way out of the traffic jam, several Iraqi insurgents approached the vehicles and open fire on the men, repeatedly shooting them at point-blank range. Within moments they are ripped from their vehicles and the surrounding crowd quickly descended on them like a pack of wild animals, ripping and tearing at their bodies.

During the frenzied attack their corpses were chopped at and burned and subsequently drug through the streets. The remains of two of the men are then hung from a bridge over the Euphrates River and left to dangle for all to see while jubilant Iraqis danced and celebrated underneath them.

The man behind the ambush, brutal attack and gruesome display, Ahmed Hashim Abed, had been one of the most sought after terrorists in Iraq and after being tracked and followed for years, a group of elite Navy Seals finally captured him.

Little did several of these Seals know at the time of the capture that they wouldn’t be getting any accolades for their efforts to bring this cretin to justice, they would be facing the end of their careers and possible hard time in a military prison.

Over a bloody lip.

foxnews.com— Navy SEALs have secretly captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq — the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. And three of the SEALs who captured him are now facing criminal charges, sources told FoxNews.com.

The three, all members of the Navy’s elite commando unit, have refused non-judicial punishment — called an admiral’s mast — and have requested a trial by court-martial.

Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named “Objective Amber,” told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.

Now, instead of being lauded for bringing to justice a high-value target, three of the SEAL commandos, all enlisted, face assault charges and have retained lawyers.

Matthew McCabe, a Special Operations Petty Officer Second Class (SO-2), is facing three charges: dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee, making a false official statement, and assault……

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.

Further, their attorneys said that the possibilty that they would not be able to cross-examine their clients’ accuser would be grounds for dismissing the case.

The accuser, Ahmed Hashim Abed, is the alleged architect of the murder of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah, Iraq, in 2004. The bodies of the four Americans were burned and hanged from a bridge for display…..

    This is just the latest of many episodes of Navy/Marine soldiers being hung out by their chain of command.  Some pinko fag officer took the killers complaint and passed it up the chain……….that pinko fag officer needs a bloody asshole.  For men to risk their lives to take down-capture alive a terrorist killer,  with the bad guy only getting a  bloody lip is remarkable.  Did they read this terr his Miranda Rights ?   This fuckin obama/holder team that gives terrorist American killers cake and cookies and constitutional rights are traitors to this nation.

    Gentleman and Lady’s I know little about this situation.

    Howerver it seems more than all of these news bloggers
    together.

    10 minutes on the web told the REAL STORY.

    First 1 marine was charged with asaulting Amed

    All 3 are charged with lieing to there superiors.In writing
    no less.

    If any of you have ever been in the military you must know

    they frown on that behavior. I REPEAT IN WRITING

    maybe more so from elite forces.

    I may be wrong, but I’m told this is not necessarily fatal.

    so to speak.

    My point (other than F.Y.I) is this is another example of

    the Neoconservative MISINFORMATION HIWAY at work again.

    Exploiting peoples natural sense of fair play. and decency.

    Your being USED.

    THAT WOULD TICK ME OFF.
