Welcome to SupportOurSEALs.com
SupportOurSEALs.com - OPERATION S.O.S. was created in response to 3 Navy SEALs who have been criminally charged with allegedly assaulting one of the most sought after terrorists in Iraq while being detained. Ahmed Hashim Abed is the suspected mastermind of the capture, torture and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards whose charred bodies were drug through the streets of Iraq and then hung from a bridge in Fallujah over the Euphrates River in March of 2004. These horrific acts of terror quickly led to the U.S. invasion of Fallujah and ultimately wound up costing many more American lives.
For 5 years, Abed remained a highly sought after target in Iraq until his capture one night in early September, 2009. The details of that night are not quite clear, but one thing is for sure, some of our military's most elite (members of SEAL Team 10) went in and extricated Abed without one casualty. Shortly after Abed was turned over to Iraqi officials, according to Fox News, Abed, whom the military code-named ''Objective Amber'', told investigators he was punched by his captors and he had the bloody lip to prove it. Without hesitation, the SEALs were ordered to give statements and were investigated by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS).

Navy SEAL Matthew McCabe Cleared of all Charges
Apr 23, 2010
More updates from the Law Firm of Puckett & Faraj, PC; the firm representing SO2 Matthew McCabe:
''We just learned that SO2 KEEFE was FOUND NOT GUILTY in Military court in Iraq. Two of the three Navy SEALs accused of detainee abuse of Ahmed Hashim Abed have now been fully exonerated by a military juries. The Law Firm of Puckett & Faraj, PC is now calling upon Major General Cleveland to dismiss the charges against the remaining Navy SEAL, SO2 Matthew McCabe. To proceed with the trial against SO2 McCabe would be a tremendous waste of tax payer money.''

Five sailors could offer testimony contradicting the government's main witness in the controversial prosecution of three Navy SEALs accused of mistreating a suspected Iraqi terrorist.
But whether they'll take the stand is in question after the government denied their requests for immunity on Friday.

As we grow closer to the scheduled trial dates set for April & May, we will be focusing on organizing more protests. In the beginning, we wanted to make sure we were not labeling these rallies ''Protests'', but instead ''Support Rallies''. We wanted to show support for these 3 SEALs, not protest our government. Well, I'm sure everyone will agree that it's time to take the gloves off. WE ARE NOW PROTESTING THE ACTIONS BEING TAKEN AGAINST THESE ELITE WARRIORS, WHILE STILL SHOWING OUR SUPPORT. Never in history has a military personnel been sent to a foreign land to stand trial by the US Government. This has gone too far and we must make our voices heard!
Please take the time to signup on our Email Updates page so we can continue to keep everyone in the loop and notify you of when & where our next protests will take place.

This past Tuesday, January 19, 2010, several successful support rallies took place in various locations across the country. Hundreds of supports gather outside Naval Station Norfolk in Norfolk, VA (Location of McCabe's trial), Perrysburg, OH (Home Town of Matthew McCabe), Naval Base Coronado in Coronado, CA & Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, NM.

Matthew McCabe's scheduled court date was moved from this coming Tues, Jan 19 to May 3 in a decision that was made by a judge yesterday in Norfolk, VA. The Military Judge granted a request to prosecutors to delay the trial because apparently 3 more Navy SEALs who were expected to testify have stopped cooperating and notified the court that they have retained their own lawyers. Also, unlike Huertas and Keefe, McCabe's trial will stay in Norfolk because according to the Washington Examiner, ''McCabe's attorney, Neal Puckett, says there's no need to move his trial because he doesn't need to question the detainee''.
The Support Rallies that are scheduled for McCabe's original start date, Jan 19, will go on as planned. We still want to send a message that we stand behind these SEALs and show them support before 2 of the 3 head to Iraq to be tried.
Jan 11, 2010
SO1 Julio Huertas went before a judge this morning and in a rare move, Commander Tierney Carlos moved the trials of Jonathan Keefe and Julio Huertas to Iraq after government prosecutors said they would make the detainee available for deposition at Camp Victory in Baghdad; however, they would not bring him to the US to testify. Keefe faces an April 6 trial and Huertas' case will be heard later that month; both in Iraq.
Jan 5, 2010
Currently, nation wide Support Rallies are being planned for Tuesday, Jan 19, 2010 for various locations all across the United States. This is the day SO2 Matthew McCabe's trail is scheduled to begin and we want the world to know that we stand behind these 3 SEALs and support them. The more local attention we can get from coast to coast, the more national attention this case will receive. You can find out more about these rallies at: Jan 19 Navy SEALs National Support Rally

This past December, all 3 SEALs were arraigned and plead not guilty to the charges stemming from the alleged abuse of Abed. The 3 SEALs refused Non-Judicial Punishment (Captain's Mast) which is based on an assumption of guilt resulting in consequences that can be career changing, and opted to take their chances with a Special Courts-Marshal to prove their innocents. Their trials are set to begin in 2010 and if convicted, they carry a federal conviction that will follow them throughout their lives, and punishment that can include a year detention and a separation from the service with an Other than Honorable Discharge.
Two of the 3 SEALs, Matthew McCabe (accused of punching Abed) & Julio Huertas went before a judge on Dec 7, 2009 and are scheduled to being trail in January, 2010. A very successful Support Rally for the 3 SEALs was also held that same day outside the Norfolk Naval Base in Norfolk, VA. Several hundred supporters came and went throughout the morning waving flags and holding signs as the 2 SEALs appeared in court. The 3rd SEAL, Jonathan Keefe was arraigned on Tuesday, Dec 22, and his trial is set to begin in April, 2010. You can find out more about the rally that took place that day by clicking here: Dec 7, 2009 Support Rally - Norfolk, VA

Special Warfare Operators 2nd Class Matthew McCabe and Jonathan Keefe, and Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Julio Huertas all face charges including allegedly punching Ahmed Hashim Abed while being detained back in September.
The charges being brought against these SEALs, if guilty, warrant nothing more than a slap on the wrist. These warriors do not deserve this; they deserve to be treated like heroes for doing the jobs that 99.999% of American can't even fathom. Yet, here they are being thrown up on the chopping block by none other than the US Government. The country they swore to defend is now feeding them to the wolves. And to add insult to injury, (click here:) Chapter 18 of the Al Qaeda training manual (page 16 of 17) released by the US Justice Department says that members must complain of torture and mistreatment inflicted on them. They're trained to use our own system against us!
I'm sure all of you agree that this is a complete outrage and mockery of our US Military. As Americans, we CANNOT stand for this and MUST show support for our troops who are constantly being put in harms way to protect the country that is now bringing them under fire.
