Press Release

Rep. Pete Olson issued the following statement today on early reports of Navy Seals facing charges involving an Iraqi detainee:


"While the reports on the charges against Navy Seals in connection with an Iraqi detainee are still in the early stages, I am deeply concerned with what I have read so far.  Rest assured that I will be closely monitoring the situation and I have faith that the military judicial system will give these men a fair and honest opportunity to present the facts.  Our brave men and women deserve every benefit of the doubt as they risk their lives for our safety."
