After a daylong trial and fewer than two hours of mulling the evidence, Navy Judge Cmdr. Tierny Carlos found Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe of Yorktown, Virginia, not guilty of dereliction of duty, a spokesman said.
It was the second verdict in as many days to throw out charges against three SEALs, the Navy’s elite special forces unit…
Huertas gave the following statement as he left the courthouse in Camp Victory: “It’s a big weight off my shoulders. Compared to all the physical activity we go through, this has been mentally more challenging.”

“Let’s pretend for a moment that we’re not all being treated like mentally challenged six-year-olds, and that it’s out on the table that the current POTUS has been blatantly hiding his past from the American electorate. Let’s also pretend that neither the media, nor our judicial system, find it laughably funny when “we the people” insist on knowing the REAL history of the person running America’s economy, military, and domestic/foreign policies.
“Let’s pretend as well, that America is still a republic, ruled by law as filtered through the U.S. Constitution.
“If we pretend all those things, then it makes perfect sense to question Obama’s eligibility to be POTUS, and expect our concerns to be treated as legitimate, vitally important issues .
“Unfortunately, in all too many cases, our legal system has been so twisted and perverted over the years, it no longer represents a republic ruled by law, and “we the people” are being treated like dim-witted, unruly six-year-olds, and mocked and ridiculed by the media, pundits, the judicial system, and politicians.”

“All clear thinking Americans should be outraged. Is this how we treat our protectors? Is this justice?” asks a former NYPD detective and US Marine.
“Let me get this straight: we’re trying a guy — a foreign terrorist — who killed 3,000 people on September 11, 2001 in a civilian court, but we’re going to try three war heroes in a military court over a bloody lip?” adds political strategist Mike Barker.
English Standard Version (ESV)
23 Some went down to the sea in ships,
doing business on the great waters;
24 they saw the deeds of the Lord,
his wondrous works in the deep.
25 For he commanded and raised the stormy wind,
which lifted up the waves of the sea.
