    Do you know what this animal did to 4 Americans and why he was targeted?

    DO YOU HAVE A CLUE THE PAIN HE INFLICTED?

    And you're worried about his freaking lip?

    DO YOU EVEN CARE ABOUT HOW WEAK WE LOOK?

    Cause the rest of the world, especially our enemies, are laughing at us.
    Was it in a warzone? I thought it was after he was in detention. If not, it probably doesn't violate anything, and as of such I don't care. And yes I care about his frickin' rights, because I care about everyone's rights. It's just the kind of person I am. And more importantly, I believe in most cases you follow the rules you've agreed to follow. Two wrongs don't make a right, didn't your mother ever tell you that?

    Why shouldn't they be punished for punching him, if it violates the UCMJ?

    Keep in mind I'm not saying we should believe the terrorist over the service men, but if it does come out in court of law that they're guilty, they should be punished accordingly.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    But they already have. The military stated... blah, blah, and blah.

    Why stop at the three blah's?

    Why not either go with no blah's (ignorance is bliss), or offer all the blah's (ah yes, it all perfect makes sense now)?

    That's what I mean by doing this half-assed. They released just enough information to piss folks off, but not enough information to enlighten anyone.

    Quick obvious caveat: I am not a lawyer.

    I think what it looks like is the SOC spokewoman got asked, and answered in the most general way.

    Lt. Col. Holly Silkman, spokeswoman for the special operations component of U.S. Central Command, confirmed Tuesday to FoxNews.com that three SEALs have been charged in connection with the capture of a detainee. She said their court martial is scheduled for January.
    So one of the Seals, or their family or friends I suspect went to FOX with the story, and when FOX checked with SOC, they got a yes, we have 3 guys charged in connection with...I really wish we had things like the actual question(s) she was asked, and her actual answers. That is the thing that is so frustrating about this whole thing, we lack so many details.

    I suspect that someone is deliberately withholding the details and preventing enlightenment.
    Who?

    Yeah. It's called the Geneva Convention. (You don't have to like it. I sure don't. But 'dem be the rules as far as our military is concerned on how to treat prisoners.)

    You do know that Terrorist are not covered by the GC right?

    Why do people give a rats ass about the rights of terrorist? I prefer this method of dealing with scum bags on the field of battle (BTW it was completely legal, sadly the bleeding hearts of the world condemned the Gen. Shame really)

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    If the men are acquitted, the Messiah and his cronies will seek to wreck the careers of the officers sitting in judgement.

    So they're going to be convicted in all likelihood. What the hell, the time-honored tradition in the military is screw the enlistees. This isn't going to be any different.
    I agreed with you up until that bit about "the Messiah" and the preceived conviction.

    Why does a conviction mean instant retribution to the officers and/or non-commissioned officers of the jury? Couldn't the Obama Administration simply commend the military judicial system for working as it was intended? And it's very possible that these soldiers could/will go free.

    The only outcome we can all be sure of is if there is a conviction, even one, the Republican Party will have a field day with it and will certainly blame the Obama Administration despite the Iraq War leading up to making this convicted terrorist public enemy #1 happened under GW Bush's watch.
