No way would I want my kids serving in the military under a justice system that would do this to a marine.

Mansur needed killing.

Definitely not just. Bad for morale. Bad for recruitment. How can we expect anyone to serve knowing that they may be prosecuted for protecting themselves?

So the government's ploy to cripple the US military continues. The military command better wake the eff up, get a clue and do something to save this country.

Military Prosecutors Withhold Evidence; Army Ranger Goes To Prison For 25 Years For Shooting Al Qaeda Operative

When I'm appointed Queen for a day, there will be several new parking lots in the middle-east.

If we're going to fight, then fight to win. If not, then our Military should come home, and let muzzies kill each other like they've been doing for thousands of years. Why are we there anyway. We have plenty of oil right here.

/off rant

He's probably screwed on appeal.

He stopped enroute to "further interrogate" the guy. I cannot imagine that this was authorized, even though my Army experience was as an NCO, not a LT.

Then, according to the story, he failed to report the killing... which probably looked like a cover up to the jury.

Also, I didn't see anything in the story (I'll read it again, to make sure) concerning any testimony from the interpreter, who, according to the LT's story, was a witness to the incident.

The terrorist had it coming, but individuals don't get to make the decision to execute them, which is what this (unfortunately) looks like. It seems the Army had it covered when they issued the capture/kill order three days after the killing (not knowing about it, because it had not been reported).

Not condemning the LT... just pointing out that it looks pretty bad for an appeal.

I would not serve in Bush’s or obama’s military, nor would I advise anyone else to.
