  • That’s an awful lot of money for the military isn’t it?

    Sad as it seems the Army is right. The real issue is what the hell is taking so long to bring this AH to trial? 3 years? There were dozens of eye witnesses. The schmuck has confessed for God’s sake. Lets get moving!!

    I suspect that the Army is far more concerned with the PR affecting the Muslim community than giving justice and support to the victims. The Army is never fully involved with common sense and this is additional evidence.

    I suspect the final sentencing of the perp. will include prison, loss of pay, reduction in rank, a dishonorable discharge and a hefty fine. Lets hope the Army is totally asleep.
