Navy SEAL Matthew McCabe Found Not Guilty

Awesome news: Matthew McCabe is now the third Navy SEAL accused of "punching" the most wanted terrorist in Iraq, to have been found not guilty.

NORFOLK, Va. - Navy SEAL Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe was found not guilty Thursday evening on charges of assaulting detained terrorist Ahmed Hashim Abed, dereliction of duty, and impeding an investigation based on a false statement.

A seven member military jury deliberated for an hour and forty minutes before reaching a verdict. For McCabe to be found not guilty, two-thirds of the jury had to agree on each charge.

Upon hearing the verdict, McCabe's mother gasped in jubilation, covering her mouth with her hands, while his father and sister smiled. McCabe and his counsel shared a few hugs and pats on the back.

Last month in courts martial in Baghdad, Petty Officers Julio Huertas and Jonathan Keefe, also Navy SEALs, were acquitted of charges that they failed to safeguard Abed. McCabe was the only SEAL charged with actual assault.

"Ronner," a commenter on a piece at the Washington Times, puts the prosecution of the SEALS into its appropriate perspective:
..... A Major who kills 13 servicemen and women while screaming Allah Akbar can't be called a Moslem Terrorist. A Moslem thug tries to blow up an airliners with over 250 Americans on it and he's "Mirandized" and given a taxpayer paid attorney to protect 'his rights'. Our own President and Attorney General want to give the thugs and cutthroats at Gitmo citizen rights and at the border illegal's are given rights that no illegal in Mexico would get for the same offense. I don't think our country can survive playing games like this, we have leaders and citizens who have lost their minds about what the 'real' world is like.
Truth be known, there must not be a single ounce of moral fiber in the entire SEAL command. Non of the SEALS should have been charged in the first place. The trials were nothing less than political correctness to the extreme and an insult to the warriors who risk their lives to defend us against a merciless and cunning enemy.

Go Navy Seals!
