Would you feel the same way if these were two Saudi men, or Pakistanis, or Egyptians who were being charged?
Yes, absolutely. It's not who is being charged, it's for what. In this case, there's no what that merited to even bring the case up. I think, in this case, the charges were brought only because of who was "involved"... Not unlike Nifong's Duke or Fitzgerald's Libby (Plame / Wilson) travesties.
As I felt all along, and as the article says "Under the circumstances, this is a case that should never have been brought." In other words, there was no there there.
