Third Navy SEAL Cleared in Iraq Abuse Case

The third Navy SEAL has been cleared in the Iraq abuse case (first) (second). As I have opined for the other two, this seems the right outcome based on what I have read on the case.

"Navy SEAL Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe was found not guilty Thursday evening on charges of assaulting detained terrorist Ahmed Hashim Abed, dereliction of duty, and impeding an investigation based on a false statement.

A seven member military jury deliberated for an hour and forty minutes before reaching a verdict. For a verdict to be reached, two-thirds of the jury had to agree on each charge.
