Army Will Not Prosecute Soldiers

I have always said the Army protects its own and is very secretive. We will not know whether this decision to not prosecute 17 soldiers involved in 3 Iraqi deaths has merit or if it just a cover up.

Excerpt
WASHINGTON - Army officials have decided not to prosecute 17 soldiers involved in the deaths of prisoners in Iraq (news - web sites) and Afghanistan (news - web sites), a military report says.
Military investigators recommended courts-martial for the soldiers in the cases of three prisoner deaths for charges ranging from making false statements to murder. Officers rejected those recommendations, ruling that the soldiers lawfully used force or didn't understand the rules for using force, or that there was not enough evidence to prosecute.
