A better discription of the incident. If his testimony gets SSG Gibbs, the primary culprit, convicted and the death penalty I'm OK with 24 years. What the story doesn't really spell out is that it took the SSG Gibbs some time and effort to break down unit disciplin enough to get to start this.

Also. One wonders about a press that much of which can't be bothered with highlighting a story in public domain until they get some graphic photo's

Did you see Alex Massie's recent remark?

"A Half-C*cked Operation in Pursuit of Half-Formed Goals. What Could Possibly Go Wrong?"

It let through "Half-C*cked" but demurred at Massie's spelling of the word.

Oh, fuck off, DM - er, just testing, old chap!

Well, it didn't faint at that one, DM, so I think it must be your end. Obviously your keyboard was assembled by a 'WeeFree' spinster from Dundee!
