    Huh.

    The U.S. military notified the AP last weekend that it intended to submit a complaint against Bilal Hussein that would bring the case into the Iraqi justice system as early as Nov. 29.

    Military officials have alleged that Hussein, 36, had links to terrorist groups but are refusing to disclose what evidence or accusations would be presented.

    Previously, the military suggested an array of possible lines of investigation, including claims that Hussein offered to provide false identification to a sniper seeking to evade U.S.-led forces, that he possessed bomb-making equipment, and that he took photographs that were synchronized with insurgent blasts.

    Hussein, a native of Fallujah, was detained in Ramadi on April 12, 2006.

    Why press charges when pressing the barrel of a .45 against his head is so much more economical and final?:badgrin:

    Need I make the obvious point? Unless you're Edwin Meese, to be charged is not necessarily to be guilty.

    You didn't think the thread title was a bit OTT and not quite reflective of the contents of the article?

    A good point. As AP CEO Tom Curley said in the article:
    The military -- our military -- wants to press the case without disclosing the charges or evidence against this man. That is utterly heinous and unacceptable.

    If you two encountered someone charged with a "hate crime," you wouldn't squeal "innocent until proven guilty." You'd say, "Lynch him!"

    No, I don't, as a matter of fact. I've got an aversion to lynching in general. It's a prejudice, I know, but it's how I feel.

    Lets try this again. The US military is going to submit a complaint -- meaning it has not formally done so -- yet the accusation that it defies democracy is levelled at the military for not disclosing the specific charges and/or evidence?

    Since when does democracy demand a list of specific charges and/or the evidence to corroborate them PRIOR TO actual charges being filed?
