"If they reclassify this is as an act of war and not as a crime which would be necessary to receive the medal, then it would call into question the right of the Army to prosecute the offender under the UCMJ."

I wish the President would make an exception here. These men were killed by a traitor. Leave the legal technicalities out of it.

If you were the attorney responsible for keeping this dirtbag from being hanged would you leave the legalities out? I wouldn't. Not that I want him to get off obviously but he has a right to a lawyer and a vigorous defense in court. And no lawyer who is doing his job would let that pass.
