Dec 7 Navy SEALs Courts-Martial PROTEST - Norfolk Virginia SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! Type: Causes - Protest Network: Global Date: Monday, December 7, 2009 Time: 8:00am - 6:00pm Location: Naval Station Norfolk City/Town: Norfolk, VA
Description As most of you already know, some of our militarys most elite, the Navy SEALs are under fire from the US Government for none other than bloodying the lip of one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq, the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. Matthew McCabe, Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe & Petty Officer Julio Huertas all face criminal charges for allegedly punching Ahmed Hashim Abed while he was being detained.

Fox News video interviewing Neal Puckett with Puckett & Faraj, PC, the lawyer representing Matthew McCabe http://video.foxnews.com/12027326/perversion-of-justice?/12027319/act-of-terror/?category_id=949437d0db05ed5f5b9954dc049d70b0c12f2749
On December 7, the three SEALs are set to go before a Judge and plead not guilty. This first court appearance is only the arraignment and the actual trial is set to being sometime in January.
As of right now, unconfirmed reports say that the arraignment will take place at Naval Station Norfolk in Norfolk, VA on December 7; however, we are still trying to figure out the exact time(s) and location(s).
Im sure all of you agree that this is a complete outrage and mockery of our US Military. As Americans, we CANNOT stand for this and MUST show our support for our troops who are constantly being put in harms way to protect the country that is now bring them under fire. We must send a message that political correctness has reached a boiling point and that these service men will not be hung out to dry.
I put this protest event together in hopes that it would gather locals in the area who would show their support that day. I, myself, am located in Fort Worth, Texas, so chances are slim to none that I will make it out next week. I do not expect to see thousands show up for the arraignment; however, it would be nice to see a decent crowd showing their support that day. The big protests need to come in January when they go on trial. This is when we all need to make the sacrifice of traveling to support them. Dont get me wrong though, if you want to travel to Norfolk on the 7th, please do so, I just dont want our efforts to be misused this early in the game.
So, with that said, I ask everyone, within reason, to take to Norfolk, VA Naval Base on the 7 and send a message loud and clear that we stand behind them.
Also, I will update everyone as more information comes to me.

Ping to Protest
What we need here is a working link to your source. I tried copying and pasting the web addresses at the bottom of your post, but do not see the text you posted. Do you have a working link to the message from Elyse A. Buongiorno? Thank you.
Awesome, thank you!
Ah, lived in Va Beach for 2 years (5 years ago) and if I still lived there, I would be front and center joining in this protest—and the FIRST I ever joined in my 66 years.
Very important ping!!!!!
I am leaving Norfolk that day on business, but will be there for a couple of hours in the morning. Maybe the Hampton Roads Tea Party organization could help out.
Check this out.
Speculation that this is punishment for jumping the gun on shooting the Somali pirates.
Bump. Anyone within driving distance should show up to support our SEALS. A Court Martial is the thanks they get for doing their job?!! Enough!
Another attack on America and the Navy on December 7th, Pearl Harbor Day. Who arranged that day and date for the arraignment I wonder?! Welcome to the military under Obama and Friends.

Need an email address to which to forward displeasure. Someone needs his tailfeathers scorched and it isn’t the Navy SEALS, sd
Just ran across this one too posted on the site link below:
There will be a rally to support these SEALs on December 7th in Norfolk, Virginia.
From an email I received this morning from a reader:

And PLEASE, even if you cannot make it because its just too far or you have other commitments, invite everyone on your friend list and encourage them to do the same. We have one week to get the word out and we need this to reach the right people.

Thanks, Saoirise. I had tried copying and pasting that link and didn’t see the announcement of the protest at the site. However, thank you so much for alerting the forum. I’m on the west coast, can’t be in old Virginny — wish I could —, but will do what I can to support these heroes.
Those who can’t be in VA can write the Sec Nav to express displeasure.

Good find 444flyer!
Just in case there is anyone in the Norfolk area on December 7.
Bump to that, the pics and your tagline!
Since no one else seems to remember, this is also the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7th, 1941, "A day that will live in Infamy."
I’m stuck down here in NC. My thoughts and prayers are with you all though, because he is gonna go again, it’s inevitable, and under a President that would gladly see him hang for doing his job. So Dear God, please take my prayers up with them.
When Obambi sees a bunch of strange folks in his next party he will know why. The Secret Service don’t wan’t to be treated like the SEALs.
Unbelievable, isn't it?
Bump and helping to get the word out. Just posted your message on the Virginia Free Republic forum board. Hope lots of Virginia Freepers can and will be there on the 7th! Wich I could! Jean St.Pete, FL
BUMP for Marcus’s brother.
My fathers best friend was there on that fateful day December 7, 1941! He made sure we would NEVER FORGET that day of infamy.
Darthyorktown and I will most certainly be there on Dec.7th.
My thoughts exactly.
I'm a little too far away to make this one. I was stationed at Norfolk as a fleet sailor under the first Jimmy Carter, the one in office now is much more damaging.
I wish there was some way for us to pull our troops back home and keep them safe. I fear the elitists in the whitehouse intend to destroy our military, along with the rest of us.
How blind can they be to convene such a trial on the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor? It was bad enough then to be unaware of a potential danger, but to tie the hands of those who would protect us is foolhardy.
bump and ping!!!
Becoming a pattern for the Kenyan Entity's little cabal of quisling thugs - remember that when they chose to renege against the Poles by renouncing the planned missile defense agreement for Central Europe, they did so on September 17, 2009, the 70th anniversary of the Russian invasion of Poland. Just to make the Russians gladsome, dontcha know.
Prayers up for these men doing their job.
How our enemies must LAUGH and LAUGH at us.
I am all for us respecting the human rights of every law abiding person in the world. LAW=ABIDING. When you do what this guy did to our brave men, you have forfeited your claim to full human rights.
Check out support for the SEALS on Facebook. Join the support group and add your friends:
BOR just announced that the JAG prosecutors better have good evidence or he's gonna get involved.
Just as soon as he figures out where they are.
Thanks for the udated location info Concretbob!
Flyer - How do we go about getting the thread put back on the right side of the FR Page so we can do a ‘reminder” to folks over the weekend.
Freepmail jimrob or admin mods about getting it back on the sidebar.
We need to start an actvism ping list.
Where do we start? Should we make a thread asking for people to join? It would be low volume, reserved only for protest alerts, call for action requests...
