I found this morning an interesting article from Marcia Drezon-Tepler on Middle East Times online. The article, here, is the first in a two part article about the problem what special forces troops in Afghanistan and Iraq can do with non-hostile civilians that they believe are likely to give away the troops position. The article is well written and sourced, and gets the MilJus stuff relatively correct. The article is apparently a republication/update of a New York Daily News piece, here, that Ms. Drezon-Tepler wrote last year about Army Sgt Evan Vela who was convicted of murder and sentenced to 10-years as a result of an incident that allegedly involved this type of an encounter.
