Outrageous - SpecOps snipers charged with murder for zapping known terrorist

At the Captain's Journal we find a very disturbing story of how dysfunctional some parts of the US military are, and how genuinely whacked in the head one of our 3-star generals is.

In a nutshell.

  • Sniper team is sent to find known terrorist bad guy in Afghanistan.

  • They find said terrorist.

  • They punch said terrorist's ticket.

  • Now they're charged with murder cuz said terrorist wasn't holding a weapon when he got erased.

The analysis and background at Captain's Journal is good, and everyone needs to read and understand that arcane stuff.

Here's the bottom line - our guys are fighting with BOTH hands tied behind their backs, and there's some batshit crazy very high level brass that are treating them like shit and THAT needs to be rectified ASAP. The 3-star who brought these charges needs to be cashiered out, FAST.

UPDATE - More here at Black 5
