These warriors need to be commended, not only for capturing the slug, but for exercising restraint in not kicking the living shit out of the asshole.
The last paragraph sums up the situation cleanly;
"This argument (letting the CM go forward to prove their innocence and clear their names) would carry more weight if the SEALs could get a fair trial. But in the current politicized atmosphere and with an administration that goes out of its way to placate Muslim sentiment, it's not a sure thing that the accused would be vindicated. Having the charges dropped is preferable to seeing these young men railroaded to serve the political designs of the White House. That would be a fiasco indeed".
