Today is a date that will forever go down in history, just as 9.11 will never be forgotten. I will forever remember this day, 12.07.09, as the epitome of the attack on us from within as 2 of the 3 Navy SEALs are arraigned for their court-martials on charges of gut-punching a terrorist and then lying about it.
Unbelievable….inexcusable….our government is pathetically hamstrung by their own political correctness, and more than a few of us are deeply disturbed by it, and looking for the way to end the chaotic delusions of this administration.
(Go here for the details if you just pulled your head out of the sand.)
Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter has written a letter to Defense Secretary Robert Gates asking him to review the SEALs case, and approximately 20 lawmakers have signed the letter including John Boehner. Go here to read the letter.
There will be a peaceful protest today outside the naval station in Norfolk, VA for Special Warfare Operator 2nd Class Matthew McCabe, Special Warfare Operator 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe, and Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Julio Huertas. A defense fund has been set up for them.
Dec 7 Navy SEALs Courts-Martial PROTEST – Norfolk Virginia
SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!
Type: Causes – Protest
Date: Monday, December 7, 2009
Time: 8:00am – 6:00pm
Location: Naval Station Norfolk
City/Town: Norfolk, VA
It has been relayed to me that the best location for us to assemble would be outside of the Norfolk Naval Base Gate 5 at the intersection of Hampton Blvd 337 & B Avenue. From all indications it looks like this is where most of the protests / rallies take place. The other gate that was an option is Gate 3A at the intersection of 1st Avenue & Bellinger Blvd just off where Admiral Taussig Blvd intersects with 564. Right now, I’m going forward with Gate 5 on our permit along the sidewalk right in front of the blue Naval Station sign; however, if anyone out there has a better suggestion, let me know right now because we’ll have it set in stone fairly. Also, we are trying to nail down the parking situation, but if you have input, please let me know. Looks like there are several large public lots close to the area. Once again, thanks for your support. Josh

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR NAVY SEALS
Washington, Dec 1 –
Mr. Speaker, the Navy SEALs are the United States Navy’s elite commandos. And last week we learned that they captured one of the most wanted terrorists in all of Iraq. Ahmed Hashim Abed was behind the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in the year 2004. This ringleader of this ambush planned the murder of these four Americans in Fallujah. And these four Blackwater security guards, what they were doing was transporting supplies from one place to another.
So he had planned, Abed had planned an ambush against these individuals. They are ambushed. They are murdered. The bodies of these four murdered Americans were then dragged through the streets, burned and hung from a bridge in Fallujah. Mr. Speaker, I’ve been to that very bridge in the year 2005, and you still have an eerie feeling knowing that four Americans were hung there in public view. The U.S. military, by the way, has put a plaque on that bridge in honor of those security guards.
And so congratulations are in order to the Navy SEALs who captured the mastermind behind this ambush and the murder of these four Americans. We should be celebrating this achievement, and these Navy SEALs should be getting medals for their work doing what we’ve asked them to do. But that’s not what is happening, Mr. Speaker. The military has decided to court-martial the Navy SEALs. It seems that this terrorist, Abed, claimed that he was punched in the mouth by the Navy SEALs, and he wants justice. He wants American justice.
You know, it’s the same mouth that preaches hate in the name of religion, the same mouth that demands death to America, the same big mouth that ordered the murder of the four Americans. So the SEALs must answer to this accusation by a terrorist that they captured. After all, the terrorist must have some of that American justice. Next thing we know, we’ll be giving these terrorists on the battlefield their Miranda warnings. Oh, we already do that.
Well, then after that, they’re going to want to be tried in civilian courts in the United States. But we’re already doing that as well. Have we gone a bit too far with the kid glove treatment that we treat these madmen, these terrorists, these people who kill Americans?
The nation is at war, Mr. Speaker. You know, punching occurs in war. Shooting also occurs in war. Instead of a court-martial, the SEALs should be dispatched to go and capture another terrorist. But that’s not happening. They are going to be court-martialed because some terrorist supposedly got a bruised mouth.
The SEALs in question are Matthew McCabe, he’s a special operations petty officer second class; Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe; and Petty Officer Julio Huertas. They are going to be court-martialed because some terrorist alleges they got punched in the mouth.
It’s ironic, Mr. Speaker, that the SEALs will be arraigned next Monday, December 7. December 7, everybody in the United States Navy remembers that day. See, it’s been 68 years since the Navy and America was attacked on December the 7th at Pearl Harbor. And now these individuals, ironically, will be arraigned that day.
Mr. Speaker, can you imagine someone in World War II, a soldier, a marine, somebody in the United States Navy, being tried for punching an enemy combatant in the mouth during World War II? You know, we should be commending the Navy SEALs for doing the job that we’ve asked them to do. They’re the best that we have in this country. We’ve asked them to do tough assignments, and we should be supporting them. The terrorists ought to be on trial for murdering Americans. And the Navy SEALs ought to be getting medals for doing what we have asked them to do. And I say congratulations to the Navy SEALs for a job well done.
And that’s just the way it is.
