Third and Final Navy SEAL Acquitted

Justice has been served as the third and final Navy SEAL is acquitted of allegedly giving a fat lip to a known jihadist during his arrest.
A military jury in Norfolk, Va. acquitted the third and final Navy SEAL court martialed in connection with the alleged assault of an Iraqi suspected in the 2004 murders of four U.S. contractors in Fallujah.
Two other SEALS, Julio Huertas and Jonathan Keefe, were found not guilty in the incident in separate trials in Baghdad. The defense's argument centered on testimony from an oral surgeon who said Ahmed Hashim Abed's injury could have been self-inflicted. Al Qaeda operatives are known to be trained to claim abuse by American captors.
Good riddance to a process that never should have started. I'd say the PC brass who let it get rolling owe these men an apology. No, I ain't gonna hold my breath waiting for it either.
