Vet brothers and former military, this is an alert to help protect those who are standing in the gap now for us. Many of us have already been there, we served, some have bled, some of us lost our buddies or unit members. We support those who have served our country in the past, the present and the future. Our brothers need our support.

Please take the time to read this...

Thank you,


Support The Seals

to: me

Dear Friend-

Americans are rallying to the side of the brave Navy SEALs who are being persecuted in the name of political correctness. Rep. Dan Burton and Rep. Dana Rohrbacher have demanded that the charges be dropped. It is time for the outrageous charges which resulted from the false accusations of a terrorist murderer to be dismissed against these fine men, and for their names to be cleared.

The time is NOW to put the final pressure on the Secretary of Defense to drop these charges. But thus far only one new outlet--FoxNews--has even reported this outrage. We need to get the word out to Americans across the land about this outrage, so they can put pressure on the powers that be to put an end to this injustice.

What Happened...

Three brave Navy SEALs captured the most wanted terrorist in Iraq in a daring nighttime raid on September 3rd, 2009. But now those SEALs are being charged with assault because that same terrorist--who planned the savage murders of 4 Americans in 2004--claimed they gave him a "fat lip". Despite no physical evidence to support his claim. And despite the fact that the Al Qaeda manual directs terrorists to falsely claim abuse. A Court-Martial has been scheduled For APRIL, and these fine men face a year in prison over the lies of a murdering terrorist!

This same terrorist, Ahmed Hashim Abed, and his followers killed 4 American bodyguards, burning three of them alive, dragged their bodies through the streets, and hung them from a bridge over the Euphrates River. It was a horrific crime. And these SEALs risked life and limb to bring him in after 5 years on the run. Yet now the politically-correct military is prosecuting the very men who captured him, because he claimed they gave him a FAT LIP? Why is the military taking the word of a murdering terrorist over our brave fighting men?

This must not stand!

According to the SEALs’ attorneys, their clients face up to a YEAR IN PRISON. They DENY the charges and have pled not guilty. But the fact that they were even charged for rough handling of a mass-murdering terrorist is an outrage.

We must stop this madness. We have heard it from military experts, from Congressmen, from attorneys: Once the Court Martial begins, public pressure is more likely to be ignored. But these experts have told us one important fact: Public pressure DOES effect whether charges are DROPPED. Popular pressure has prevailed in the past, and MUST do so now to halt this gross injustice against the heroes who captured this terrorist murderer in a heroic operation.

Court-Martial. Careers destroyed. Up to a year in prison. Reputations tarnished forever. And all on the word of a murdering terrorist? All for the sake of political correctness? This cannot be permitted to go any further. We must stop this Court Martial before it begins--NOW.

Secretary Gates, under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, can intervene at any time to dismiss the charges against the three SEALs and direct that they be restored to duty.

What We are Doing...

We are asking for support to help run ads on cable and TV outlets

Outside of FoxNews, the national media is NOT reporting this story, between overall bias and the domination of the recent healthcare debate. But we cannot afford to let the careers and lives of these fine men to remain leblow the radar. We need to target the leaders who can make this disgraceful witchhunt go away: Secretary Gates, the Congress, the Armed Services Committees, the military brass, and the Administration. Due to mainstream media censorship of this issue, we believe the best way to do this is with TV ads. We have to act FAST to get the word out to millions of Americans, who will be OUTRAGED into action when they see these ads, and flood the marbled offices of Washington with their phone calls, faxes, emails and letters.

But to do this we must get the word out to the American People...PLEASE HELP US RUN OUR AD on national cable TV outlets to help stop this outrage!

What You Can Do...

We ask your support in helping us run our TV ads

. But even if you cannot afford to help us run our ads, please use our website's resources to CALL, EMAIL, FAX and write LETTERS to the decision makers in the military, Congress, the Administration, and also on Talk Radio and in the Media. Sign our petition (over 38,000 have so far) which we will deliver to Defense Secretary Gates and Congressional leaders. Write an Op-Ed piece in your local newspaper. Anything will help get the word out about these men being railroaded for the sake of political correctness! Don't we all owe these brave men a minute of our time to call, email or fax on their behalf?

Our soldiers and sailors are the men and women that have kept terrorists at bay for eight years. These are the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for you and your families. These are the men and women who have the enemy on the run right now so that you can sleep peacefully at night.

These are the men and women being shot at, blown up, injured and killed, and they are shooting back at the enemy to defend you against terrorists that would otherwise be in your town, shooting at you, taking your loved ones hostage and beheading them.

The prosecution of our heroes for the alleged action against a terrorist is madness. Do not let this pass without a letter, email, fax, telephone call, to your senator, your representative, the President and the Secretary of Defense to tell them to back off the prosecution of these Navy SEALS.

Imagine what a nightmare this must be for these SEALs and their families. These charges were filed 2 days before Thanksgiving, and the threat of Court Martial loomed over them during the Christmas season. While American families celebrated that most special time of year, these SEALs and their families have had to suffer through the stress and humiliation of this needless witch-hunt. And now the Court Martial is just a month away.

This MUST not stand! We CAN stop it if we get the word out to all Americans. We must not fail these fine men.

Thank you, and God Bless.

SMF Friends you don't have to be a Vet or former military to appreciate the injustice these combat sailors are enduring. You too can sign the petition, contact your local congressman, or write your local newspaper.

It is enough that vets and active military who have served in combat or supported combat operations, have left family, home, careers, a life, to protect the USA from it's enemies. When innocent US soldiers or sailors have to protect themselves from their own superiors and government this is a betrayal of trust, that no one should have to endure. STOP, ALLOW THESE MEN TO RETURN TO THEIR HONORABLE DUTY!

Thank you for supporting our men and women serving in the US armed forces.
I say, throw that son of a b..... in the white house and lock the door. Then we'll see where justice lies!

That way there is one side and no fat lip.

All I can say since I have never served in the military is THANK YOU to all that have and I will continue to support you until my last breath because without you all fighting for our rights we would not be able to have all these great things that is possible in America GOD BLESS. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
