From abc.net.au:

Quote:

A legal hearing in Iraq is deciding whether four American soldiers should face a court martial for the alleged rape of a teenaged Iraqi girl and the murder of her family.

The attack in March this year is one of a series of atrocities being blamed on American forces in Iraq.

The soldiers will appear before what is known as an Article 32 Hearing - the military equivalent of Grand Jury proceedings in the American civilian courts.

It will take place on a US military base in Baghdad and will decide whether there is enough evidence to take the case to a court martial.

The four men are accused of conspiring to rape and kill a 14-year-old Iraqi girl in her home after shooting dead her parents and five-year-old sister.

They are alleged to have helped a former private, who has since left the army, plan, carry out, and cover-up the attack.

Let's see if this will produce something or it will finish in a farce...

Your lack of faith in the legal system is a shame. If they are guilty they will be dealt with accordingly. If they are innocent then I'm sue there will be plenty of folks like you thinking it is all a conspiracy.  banghead

I remember reading that one of these guys is a full blown psycho and shouldn't even been allow to join the army, but the recruiter cut some corners. I believe it was Newsweek had a picture of him standing in his apartment with some sort of assault rife.

I have full faith in the military system to do right in this case.

Unfortunately there is always a doubt after a sentence... A legal system (I'm talking in general) isn't flawless because it's composed by men, and men are making unwilled mistakes every day. Without considering voluntary distiortions (False witness? Non-fair Judge? etc. etc.)...

I admire you that thinks that "right justice will always prevail". Unfortunately when there are a lot of interests in the pot, the results aren't always following the recipe.

Cheers

I have more faith in the military system than the regular one! If they're guilty... they'll get nailed.

Definitely a full blown psycho.

I would expect this case to proceed from the article 32 to a full court martial without much contention.
