The Warner arraignment

Here's an AP piece on yesterday's arraignment of Staff Sergeant Hall M. Warner at Fort Campbell. Staff Sergeant Warner is reportedly charged with premeditated murder, accessory to murder, assault, obstruction of justice, and making a false official statement arising from the shooting of a detainee in Iraq. The defense entered a not guilty plea at yesterday's arraignment.

According to this AP account, Staff Sergeant Warner's court-martial will begin on 16 February 2009.

First Lieutenant Michael C. Behenna, who allegedly actually shot the detainee, reportedly hasn't been arraigned yet. He is charged with premeditated murder, assault, and making a false official statement. His court-martial is scheduled to start on 23 February 2009.

This is becoming more of a news blog than an analysis of court decisions blog.

I know it sounds crazy, but how about we respect whatever decision Dwight Sullivan makes regarding the topics he deems appropriate for HIS blog. And Dwight, thanks for the great blog. It's a must read for miljus practitioners.
