Second Navy SEAL Cleared in Iraqi Terrorist Abuse Case

Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe was cleared today of charges of dereliction today in Iraq.
The AP reported:

A U.S. military judge has cleared a Navy SEAL of wrongdoing in the alleged beating of a prisoner suspected of masterminding the grisly 2004 killings of four American contractors in Iraq.

The military says the judge found insufficient evidence to convict Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe on charges of dereliction of duty.

Keefe — one of three SEALS charged in the case — was not accused of assaulting Ahmed Hashim Abed but of failing to prevent the abuse.
