Petition: Free the Seals

by THE EDITORS December 11, 2009
Human Events has created a petition to urge Secretary of Defense Robert Gates to intervene to dismiss the charges against Navy SEAL operators SO2 Jonathan Keefe, SO1 Julio Huertas and SO2 Matthew McCabe.
 
On the evening of September 1, 2009, these men captured and detained Ahmed Hashim Abed, one of the most brutal and wanted terrorists in Iraq. Upon his capture, Abed complained of abuse, saying he was punched when the three SEALs captured him. Abed is the alleged mastermind behind the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater contractors in Fallujah in 2004.
 
In an incident that shocked and angered Americans back home, the four Blackwater agents were transporting supplies for a catering company when they were ambushed and killed by gunfire and grenades. Their bodies were then burned and dragged them through the city. Two of the bodies were hanged on a bridge over the Euphrates River for the world press to photograph.
 
Now, instead of receiving praise for capturing the man said to be behind this heinous act, the three SEALs now face special courts-martial next month.
