    Like I said, he punched himself in the face to make a phony complaint.

    Comon hobo even I know this is wrong.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    The guard that reported the complaint violated the more important rules and obeyed the rule that says terrorists should be coddled because they're special, delicate little flowers that bloom only for America-hating politicians in the US.

    Like I said, the men that turned the terrorist's complaint in for official action should be sent to combat units immediately, so they can get a speedy return to America via Dover AFB.

    [quote=Scarecrow Akhbar;1058388382]There are more serious issues to be dealt with than fat lips.

    Since the accuser is a terrorist, his complaint shouldn't be important.[quote]
    What does the legal systems that the soldiers are bound by say on the matter? Informal codes of honor are not legal systems.

    Hmmm......let's see....terrorist engineers the mass murder of thousands, plots the murder of possibly millions if he can figure out how....whines of fat lip....against US serviceman doing his job protecting America against said terrorist.

    Well, I can see why you're siding with the terrorists, but really, the fatness of his lips isn't something I'm losing sleep over.
    I'm not siding with the terrorists, I believe that the rules should be fairly applied no matter what. You don't like it, you change the rules. I'm not sure why this is such a hard concept for you to grasp.

    I'd be falsifying official documents all over the place if that's what happens when the men do their duty properly.

    And yes, bitch slapping a prisoner who was trying to kill you and who doesn't know when to shut up is perfectly acceptable behavior for warriors.

    Not for cops, but it's just fine and dandy, expected even, for warriors when their blood is up.

    What's the big deal?

    OH! I know! Let's create a domestic climate so the warriors feel their own side is out to get them, and will punish them if they take prisoners. So they'll kill prisoners instead of going to the bother of dragging them in.

    Seriously, I've no problem with that. The best terrorists are the dead terrorists, after all. Why starve the worms and buzzards?
    You are making an assumption from incomplete facts. Last I heard, the military is(rightly) not commenting on the case, so we have only one side of the story. If the primary complaint is they hit the guy, I hope they get off. If there is more to the story, as I suspect there is, I will withhold judgment until I know more.

    The problem here is that people are rushing to throw a fit without knowing for sure what is going on. Some of you so badly want something to bitch about, you run ahead of the facts.

    I just finished looking at every news-story and blog-article listed at Google News concerning this. They basically all say what was reported in this thread OP. According to the US military, three Navy Seal commando's have been officially charged with “abusing a detainee” and “falsifying official documents”. The initial charge stems from an abuse complaint filed by the terrorist himself. The secondary charge is a consequence of the initial abuse charge.

    People can only go by what the military itself has stated. Either the military is witholding pertinint information on this case, or the military is engaged in a ridiculous and petty application of political correctness as reported.

    Neither scenario is very comforting.

    In a war zone, taking into custody a high value target, who resists...

    And he gets a bloody lip.

    AND YOU PEOPLE ARE WORRIED ABOUT HIS FREAKING RIGHTS???

    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.
    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.

    I agree. They turned down the plea bargain and demanded a trial. They are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

    Claims made by terrorist should never trump those made by our service men and women. I do not know about you but I prefer to take the word of our service mem and women instead of the word of terrorist. And even if they did punch the scumbag they still shouldn't be punished for it.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
