A U.S. military jury on Thursday cleared a Navy SEAL of any wrongdoing in the alleged beating of an Iraqi prisoner suspected of masterminding the grisly 2004 killings of four American contractors.

Matthew McCabe, a Special Operations Petty Officer Second Class, was facing three charges: dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee, making a false official statement, and assault.

Be careful SEALs and RANGERs... the Obama Administration is looking for scapegoats to prosecute. YOU could be next.

The earlier thread about DeMarino seemed to seal this verdict. Lying bastard tried to protect himself, so these SEALS were brought up on charges.

Still, there is NO excuse for our brass prosecuting these cases against our own soldiers, sailors, Marines, SEALS in a war zone. We need new leadership.

This is welcome news. Thanks for the update.

In this 'sue-happy' world, he and his colleagues, should sue the person, or persons, who brought these false charges against them.

What 0Dumbo is doing to Our Military is discraceful and unPresidential! 0Dumbo really needs to quit because he is brainless!.

Like Hodar say’s, 0Dumbo will condem our great troops. My guess is that 0Dumbo will make his condemming comments Friday night to avoid the MSM.

“HEY 0DUMBO, HOW ABOUT A BEER SUMMIT WITH THE TROOPS! Sorry POS!.

Please, somebody pinch me. This cannot be happening to MY and YOUR COUNTRY. What the H3ll!
