Navy SEALs Face Assault Charges for Capturing Most-Wanted Terrorist – Iraq | War | Map – FOXNews.com.

Fox seems to have omitted the words covering, up, black, eye, administered, in, process, and of from their headline here. Is it ideal for SEALs to face punishment for punching a terrorist in the process of capturing him? No, but then it isn’t ideal for them to lie to their superiors either and of the three charges listed only one of them has to do with the punch. You know what’s coming right?

Much gnashing of teeth and KSM-gets-a-civilian-trial based snark from the usual suspects, who apparently exist in some alternate universe where Obama is not only bringing these guys up on charges personally but presiding over the court martial as well. I just don’t see the connection, but the rightwing blogger nutballs are babbling about it so I’m sure the traditional media will be along to tell us why this is bad for Obama and how it affects Sarah Palin’s 2012 election prospect shortly. I mean, I’m sure it’s dreadfully unserious to bring up the topic of who was president when a bunch of shit went down that might’ve made the military a bit sensitive to detainee-abuse issues.

    lol… look at the auto-generated posts. WordPress appears to be trying to antagonize me. Click on the second one and you can see the blogger trying on some military jargon for size:

    “Whiskey tango foxtrot, interrogative, over.”

    Um, yeah… I’ve watched Generation Kill and played Modern Warfare too, and here’s how I can tell you’re playacting: ‘interrogative’ signifies that the speaker is about to ask a question. It isn’t just inserted randomly before saying “over.”
