SEALs Prosecution is Appalling

My son Marc was the first Navy SEAL who gave his life in Iraq

I am appalled and disgusted at the charges against our SEALs for having given a HVT (High Value Target) "a fat lip."
I have heard stories first-hand from SEALs who, after detaining a terrorist, have observed the terrorists bang their faces against the vehicle to make it look like they were beaten. Then they report that they were beaten.
Do people understand what a High Value Target is? Those are the worst of the worst terrorists who have planned terrorist attacks, killed and tortured innocent people. These are mass murders.
Our brave warriors who were willing to give their lives to capture this guy are being "accused" of giving him a fat lip? I would have given him more than a fat lip!
The rules of engagement that have been enacted since Obama took office require that if there are women or children anywhere in the area and our troops are being fired on, they cannot return fire but must turn and run! It's amazing that our troops can even get close enough to detain the enemy with these ROE.
We are at war, not on a preschool playground. Let our warriors do what they do best.
We should be singing their praises for capturing one of the worst radical terrorists, and instead they are removed from the battlefield and placed on trial in a courtroom, incurring huge legal costs.
Sounds like the terrorist strategy won on this one!!!
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with our readers about the prosecution of these three Navy SEALs.
Knowing that your son Marc gave his life in Iraq in 2006, we can only imagine how disheartening it must be for you to see his fellow SEALs being court-martialed after capturing this man.
Readers, Debbie Lee is a remarkable woman we are proud to call our friend. Since Marc's death, she has dedicated her time to supporting our nation's warriors. She even made a trip to Iraq to show support for our troops, and while there, donned body armor and a kevlar helmet to walk down the street where her son gave his life to permit the evacuation of a friend who was seriously wounded. She has created her own non-profit foundation to continue her work in supporting our troops. Please pay a visit to its web site, America's Mighty Warriors, and read Marc's stirring last letter home. Grab a hanky first.
We've written several pages about this amazing woman and her equally remarkable son. You can read more about Marc and Debbie on these pages:
