The first of three unnecessary court martials is over and the first of three Navy Seals has been found not guilty.
Petty Officer Julio Huertas and two other Navy SEALs -- Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe and Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe -- have been facing charges in connection with the assault of Iraqi detainee Ahmed Hashim Abed.
Abed testified that he could not see who struck him but a McCabe is charged with the actual assault.
The stark difference between killing, burning, dragging through the streets, and hanging the bodies of US contractors and a few punches and kicks has many people extremely upset that these men are even being tried.
The bright side is that, if they are all found innocent, they will hopefully be able to put this behind them unless the administration allows some world court power over our soldiers.
