ABA Journal article on Blackwater contractor MEJA prosecution

The March issue of the ABA Journal includes this article on the MEJA prosecution of six Blackwater contractors arising from the deaths of 14 Iraqi civilians and wounding of 20 more in Baghdad's Nisur Square in September 2007. While my copy of the March ABA Journal showed up in Casa CAAFlog's mailbox just yesterday, the article appears to have been written before Judge Urbina's 17 February ruling denying the defendants' motion to dismiss on jurisdictional grounds, which we discussed here. It also appears that the article's author is unaware of Article 2(a)(10) of the UCMJ.
