Matthew McCabe's been released......Innocent of ALL charges...HURRAH.

OOOOORah!!!! Now...I hope he convinces 10,000 Seals to retire, quit and leave the service that would prosecute any soldier, sailor or MARINE for doing HIS DUTY! That's what we deserve...for treating them this way. I regret that that scumbag Murtha's not alive to see how disgraceful his seditious rants were.

Hurrah all the more since McCabe was totally innocent.

What sort of coddling do people expect in a combat zone? A full set of silver and a butler per prisoner? Sheesh!

"The defense called an oral surgeon Thursday who testified by phone from Baghdad. He said Abed might have bitten an ulcer on his lip, causing it to bleed. Defense attorneys hope this validates their position that no assault occurred and that Al Qaeda detainees are trained to injure themselves then claim abuse.

Earlier, after the prosecution and defense both rested their cases, prosecutors Thursday announced they needed time to present a rebuttal. They were basically trying to rehabilitate their key witness, Petty Officer 3rd Class Kevin Demartino, who claims he saw McCabe punch the prisoner in the stomach. Demartino’s character and credibility had been questioned by a string of defense witnesses Wednesday, many of them Navy SEALs. A rebuttal witness Thursday morning, Demartino’s former superior officer, called Demartino “one of my top sailors—I can depend on him for anything.”

Defense witnesses on Wednesday had painted a picture of Demartino as unstable, unreliable and, after the incident with Abed, “distraught.” According to testimony, Demartino was worried his career would be ruined because a prisoner claimed abuse on his watch, and that he would no longer have a chance for his dream job with the California Highway Patrol. This, the defense claims, gives Demartino a motive to lie.

Demartino did not immediately report the alleged assault to his superiors and admits to dereliction of duty. The defense suggested that since Demartino initially said nothing, then later described seeing McCabe punch Abed, he’s an unreliable witness.

Kevin...if I were you, I'd hide. And if I were McCabe...I'd hunt you down you lousy, weak kneed sissy of a "man". You scum bag traitor without honor, class or a sense of duty and commitment to your kill jihadists. In're a miserable, dishonorable

Hurrah! Wonderful to get some GOOD news for a change.

When at war, it would be best to take no prisoners. Dead men can't make false accusations.

The purpose of the military is to blow things up and kill people -- not to perform social work and mete out "justice" in a hailstorm of bullet while trying to avoid stepping on mines.

Those who lead the military these days must be a bunch of absolute assholes.

NOW I think the U.S. Government ought to be made to pay at least one million dollars in compensatory damages for what they put these good men through. As a taxpayer I would have no problem with spending my money on that.

I think that men who turn on one of their own in way should be summarily EXECUTED.

3 for 3. Finally, a win for the good guys.

How much you want to bet Hussein goes on another ME apology tour after this outrage?

Yea! But how many thousands of dollars later?? And yes, Major, I understand there is a quiet "resistance" (NOT rebellion) moving through the SEALS to being put in a position of duty that could lead to prosecution. Because of this mess.

Yahoooo! Thank God this travesty is over. That these fine young men had to undergo this trial, is an outrage. I know they chose this to clear their names, but it never should have been necessary.

God bless them.

We are living in a time of politically correct madness.

When I hear things like this, I wonder exactly what the Left THOUGHT would happen when they so stupidly prosecuted guys in such an honorable unit as SEALS, thinking they were wrong...pulling a MURTHA and jumping to conclusions before the facts, costing these guys terribly and ruining America's reputation even more because of .....THE LEFT.

Amen. Evidently there is at least a little justice left in the world.

I salute all 3 Seals, thank God for the outcome.

Funny, our Government can't press charges against ACORN for numerous criminal activities, including voter fraud or the New Black Panthers who conduct terrorism outside a polling place... but they can cause members of one of our finest, elite defenders of freedom, Navy Seals, and their families this kind of stress on the word of a murdering terrorist and enemy of our country!

I am relieved that they were found innocent, but I am deeply distressed that this Government can do this sort of thing and GET AWAY WITH IT!!! They (all parties responsible for bring the charges) should face charges of treason IMHO!
