The Tragic Case of LtCol Chessani.

Humbled Infidel has a great post on the ridiculous prosecution of LtCol Jeffrey Chessani. Given that the government's case against the Marines who supposedly committed the underlying crimes has completely collapsed, you'd think that the charges against Chessani would be dropped. It's understandable to hold the commanding officer partially responsible when his troops commit bad acts...but you'd think that when it turns out that those troops didn't do the things the pentagon (and the media, and John Murtha) accused them of....that would be the end of it. Well if you thought that you'd be wrong.

This war has been overlawyered from the start. God help us if we ever have to fight one on the scale of World War II again. I think we might just commit national suicide in the name of political correctness.
