The highest pranking Marine officer,Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani, implicated in the Haditha Massacre has had charges against him dropped.
Well it would seem with one case left, that makes this whole thing nothing more than a liberal smear campaign, politicized for the benefit of a few with the sole intention of trying to blame more on Bush…
Seven of the Eight Marines charged have been vindicated, now only Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich is left to stand trial.
Hey John Murtha, WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR AN APOLOGY TO OUR MARINES.
As I have said before John Murtha and the Mass Media should be brought up on charges for endangering our soldiers on the battlefield. I would venture to call this sham by Murtha treasonous.
CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — A military judge has dismissed charges against a Marine officer accused of failing to investigate the killings of 24 Iraqis.
Col. Steven Folsom dismissed charges Tuesday against Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani after defense attorneys raised concerns that a four-star general overseeing the prosecution was improperly influenced by an investigator probing the November 2005 shootings by a Marine squad in Haditha.
The charges were dismissed without prejudice, meaning they can be refiled, but Folsom excluded Marine Forces Central Command from future involvement.
Chessani was the highest-ranking officer implicated in the case.
