Three Navy SEALs, who have succeeded in capturing one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq, are going to be court-martialed.  For punching this poor thing, who is the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Americans (guards for Blackwater) in Fallujah in 2004.  Here is his handiwork (graphic image).

Keep in mind that this means that Khalid Sheik Muhammed -- one of the 9/11 masterminds -- will be granted greater rights and protections than these three Navy SEALs.

It's morally obtuse in Obamaland, isn't it?

Update:  Oh, and if Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez has his way, Osama bin Laden would have a civilian trial, too.  You gotta hand it to the USA under the Democrats -- we're willing to hand our enemies propaganda victories they wouldn't ever be able to win for themselves. 

Where are these peoples' common sense?  Apparently, military justice isn't good (or fair) enough for anyone but the people who risk their lives to protect us.
