There's the rub - We are getting all these contradictory statements from people who HAVE had direct combat experience in Iraq. I'm not refering specifically to conflicting statements by different individuals, but to statements made at different times by the same person. Hopefully a trial will be able to reconcile these differnt stories and get us close to understanding what actually happened
Only THEN can it be determined if any individual oversteped the bounderies.
If it goes to trial, the prosecution must feel they have a case.
At the risk of making you smile :-) Based on what we are given, even ignoring all the "firefight" rhetoric being tossed around, I don't see them putting enough of these statements together coherantly to have a good case.
That said, you will recall that the best thing about telling the truth is that you don't have to remember what you said last time.

If you haven't read this story I think you should. Might give you a better understanding of just how screwed up things can get over there.
