Navy SEAL Accused of Giving Terrorist a Boo-Boo Acquitted

One down, two to go:

BAGHDAD (AP) — One of three Navy SEALs charged with abusing an Iraqi prisoner has been acquitted by a military jury in Baghdad. Petty Officer Julio Huertas could have accepted a disciplinary reprimand, but insisted on a trial. The two other SEALs are still awaiting their days in court.

Hopefully this bodes well for the remaining two SEALs, but the travesty is that it’s happening in the first place.
