    Okay- and again, we killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis... so why does this guy deserve punishment?

    Oh, that's right. Because at the time, we were trying to convince the Iraqis to let us keep troops in their country, so we needed to make an example out of someone.

    Except their wasn't premeditation. Premeditation means you don't take the translator along with you, because those guys were only slightly more trustable than the terrorists. The fact he took a translator with him shows he intended to interrogate the terrorist, not kill him.

    Yup, I have this funny idea if you put a man on trial for his life, you actually make it a FAIR process.

    Better than a 100 guilty men go free than one innocent man go to prison, and all that.

    Um, no. Being at the wrong place at the wrong time is hardly a jailable offense. Especially since we probably let the guys who did kill Spann off a long time ago.

    So this is about America being upset this (admittedly disturbed) young man rejecting our culture and embracing theirs...

    17 years for being in the wrong place... doesn't seem right to me.
