(Newser) – After capturing one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq, three of the Navy SEALs involved in the operation now face assault charges for giving Ahmed Hashim Abed a bloody lip, military sources tell Fox News. Abed is said to have masterminded the 2004 murder and public mutilation of four Blackwater private security guards in Fallujah.
