I Want a Name!

In case you missed it.
Three Navy SEALs have requested courts-martial for apprehending one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq.
Yep. You read that right.

Ahmed Hashim Abed...(the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004)... whom the military code-named "Objective Amber," told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.

And someone...
somewhere in the chain of command...
Made the decision to proffer charges.

I want that person's name.

Update: BTW, that link is to (shudder) Fox News. Because a search at "The Newspaper of Record" (AKA, "All the News that's fit to Ignore") revealed...

  1. I think it's high time that "we the people" grow a pair and put a stop to this BS. This type of thing is going to cause one of two reactions:

    1) There won't be anymore hostiles taken alive.

    2) There won't be anymore hostiles taken period.


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
