the details are hazy, but this is apparently a high value target that received a bloody lip while being captured in a combat environment.  it happened back on september 1, so this has had enough time to rattle up the chain of command and get the "new and improved" obama policies applied to it.

this guy is supposedly the ringleader of the band of terrorists that murdered and mutilated the four blackwater contractors in 2004 . . . and then hung them from a bridge.

the administration is going to have a serious political problem on their hands if they micromanaged this thing.

SEALs charged in alleged assault of detainee

SAN DIEGO — Three Navy SEALs are facing court-martial for allegedly assaulting and mishandling a detainee they captured in Iraq in September, military officials said.

The three SEALs — Special Warfare Operators 2nd Class Matthew McCabe and Jonathan Keefe, and SO1 Julio Huertas — will be arraigned Dec. 7 in a military court in Norfolk, Va., said Army Lt. Col. Holly Silkman, a spokeswoman with U.S. Special Operations Command Central.

McCabe is charged with one count each of assault of the detainee, dereliction of duty and making a false official statement, Silkman said. Officials accuse McCabe of “willfully failing to safeguard a detainee,” Silkman said.

Keefe is charge with one count each of dereliction of duty and false official statement; Huertas is accused of dereliction of duty, false official statement and impeding an investigation, she said.

Army Maj. Gen. Charles Cleveland, SOCCent commander, preferred the charges against the SEALs and will serve as the convening authority as the cases proceed to court-martial, tentatively scheduled for mid-January, Silkman said.

the SEALs are choosing a court martial over a captains mast, risking prison to prove
their innocence.  the bastard terrorist said he got a fat lip, so of course the administration
is making sure that his rights weren't violated.

WTF?
