Navy SEAL’s Trial Gets Moved To Iraq

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Navy SEAL’s trial in detainee abuse moved to Iraq

January 11, 2010

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A Navy SEAL accused in the mistreatment of an Iraqi detainee will be tried in a U.S. military court in Iraq.

A military judge in Virginia on Monday set the court-martial of Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe for April 6 at Camp Victory, site of the alleged abuse.

Keefe and another SEAL are accused of trying to cover up after a third SEAL allegedly punched an Iraqi suspected in a 2004 ambush that killed four U.S. security contractors.

Prosecutors said they would not bring the detainee to Norfolk to testify. The judge ruled Keefe has the right to face his accuser and moved his trial. Keefe is from Yorktown, Va

We have proudly confessed mass-murdering terrorists getting $200 million dollars a year civilian trials in New York City.

But we can’t have a man brought from Iraq so that these (preposterously accused) Navy SEAL can confront his (terrorist) accuser?

What is wrong with our judicial system?

    Our Justice system has become The Tighlight Zone, where up is down and down is up. While I am aware that we will encounter a hazy fog in our courtrooms unlike any other with our present charlatan in office, I must also admit to being bewildered and upset with our same Justice system when they treated US Border Agents Ramos and Compean the way they did in better times. I know that President Bush pardoned them on his way out of office, but, frankly, the damage had already been done.

    Political Correctness, combined with an epic need to destroy the traditional goodness and original intent of this grand experiment we call America, has grown into the winning formula for silencing-nay, prosecuting-its foes.

    The handwriting is on the wall.

    They moved it to Iraq to get it off the radar.

    Those heros are going to be convicted, and the criminals who run our government want to do it in the least visible place they can find.

    This is an example of Obama putting enough fear into U.S. soldiers so worried of discipline, they are worse than sitting ducks. Our soldiers are slaving for a terrorist country. Serving tea, making toilets, as they get shot at.

    Next Obama will take dis-arm our soldiers away such as the unarmed Marines getting killed by muslims, while building bridges in the Philippians.

    From what I understand, the only reason this thing is going to a court martial is because these fine young lads would not accept a lesser form of reprimand. They refused to admit guilt and asked that they be given their day in court. I don’t think they will be convicted, I think that the military wants to cover it up because the charges and evidence are so flimsy that they will look ridiculous. I could be wrong, but let’s hope in this instance that I am correct and that these men will be back doing what they do best quickly. Say on April 7. So we can nip this type of crap in the bud.

    “WE” all have front row seats to the fall of a once Great Nation.

    This is purely discusting. These young men should never have been put into this situation in the first place. Of course that’s no news.

    Our system has gotten so upside down.

    On the word of a lying terrorist…..Our defenders have to be subjected to this.

    I keep thinking about Americans being hung from bridges…And this jerk worries about a bloody nose?

    I say our solders should leave no one to complain the next time. Why subject themselves to these liers.

    They are in my prayers.

    We’ll all be praying for these brave heroes who are being put through this hell on the word of a terrorist.

    The question is, is this the beginning? Where will they draw the line for going after our soldiers? Will those who killed the enemy on the battlefield be charged with murder? One of the worries on the latest Exec Order (no time to go dig up the number – the one giving so much power to Interpol), is they’ll “allow” Interpol to go after our soldiers for however they define “war crimes.”

    All of this makes me want to puke. We MUST keep this in the public eye.

    Terrorists are mirandized and given citizens’ rights and we foot $200+ million per year for their ‘trials’ so they can spew their mohammadan insanity on our soil but defenders of the freedoms and ideas that made this country great are hung out to dry in a foreign dungheap. I am so ashamed of my country. What an underhanded, disloyal, backstabbing, Chicagoesque, godawful thing to do.

    If this was still the Bush Administration – I would agree that they will get off (such as Murtha’s Haditha Marines – who are were acquitted – but alas some lib Judge wouldn’t allow two of them to sue him for violation of their civil rights – guess according to the civilian courts – Marines have no civil rights). But with this Thug Administration – I’m not so sure. Just hope that the US military will stand strong and do the right thing.

    God Help America. And those Navy Seals.
