    Every other Marine charged has had those charges dropped. This SSgt did his job in my opinion.

    Whether he did his job or his job did him is subject to discussion at a level which is well beyond that of typical courts martial concerns. I hope this NCO's lawyer brings one or two appropriately oriented behaviorists in as expert witnesses on the matter of temporary insanity -- which defines what our government has exposed our troops to in Iraq and Afghanistan. Organized insanity!

    This case is a recurrence of the infamous My Lai Massacre in Vietnam, which was another prime example of the kind of madness that comes from sustained exposure to lethal violence. Some people simply cannot maintain rational composure and they behave in ways which are considered psychopathic under normal circumstances but normal under psychopathic circumstances.

    Condition someone to kill and it becomes second nature to him. But in spite of that consideration they are about to make a scapegoat of this Marine.

    He did not murder anyone. He carried out the assigned mission. He is neither crazy or psychopathic. He followed approved procedures and orders given. As did his men, that is why NONE of them were sustained on the charges. The Government has brow beat some of his men into lying about what happened most likely.

    After spending 20+ years in the Corps I wouldn't bet heavily on your mental stability either. Four years of that lunacy was quite enough for me.

    On Facebook - This group is made to support Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey R. Chessani and the rest of the Marines who were falsely accused of war crimes against Iraqis in Haditha, Iraq 2005. These Marines are American heroes for serving their country and defending themselves in harms way. Our support and prayers go out to them and their families.
