The New Your Post is declaring the truth about our Navy Seals exoneration...

Now... when do we hold the "pentagon" accountable for it's smearing our Seals?

SEALs 3, Pentagon 0

Not guilty. Not guilty. Not guilty.

The third and final Navy SEAL to be court-martialed in the alleged roughing-up of a brutal terrorist in Iraq was acquitted on all counts Thursday -- leaving Pentagon brass a pathetic 0-3 in the proceedings.

Surely, justice was done for Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe, just as it was for his comrades, Petty Officer 1st Class Julio Huertas and Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe, who were cleared last month.

But none of these heroes should've been charged in the first place.

Defense lawyers were able to shoot plenty of holes in the government's evidence -- leaving it, more or less, with the testimony of terror mastermind Ahmed Hashim Abed alone.

Now, one expects, the SEALs will be able to return to the battlefield with their honor intact. And the brass will be able to reflect on what a pointless waste the entire episode has been.

Abed, after all, was the thug responsible for killing and mutilating four US contractors in Fallujah in 2004. He was captured by SEALs last September and soon after came down with a cut lip. Aw.

Actually, the government should be ashamed of having charged the SEALs. The only result was that Americans lost the services of three decorated warriors for the better part of a year -- and Abed got the sick satisfaction of seeing his captors in the dock.

Not to mention, fighting men and women throughout the armed forces were given cause to question whether the chain of command had their backs.

Now, at least, justice has prevailed.

Congratulations to McCabe, Keefe and Huertas -- and good hunting.

Former Senator Murtha would have been proud of the pentagon... of course... Murtha was a traitor.

None of these men should have been tried period. They should have been given medals.

This really pisses me off.
