I have been following the story of the death of an American Green Beret at the hands of 2 SEALs and 2 Marine Raiders in the West African nation of Mali…….
I have been following and writing about this situation since I first learned about the death and the investigation.
The 4 Special Ops troopers were set to go to trial on 10 December and news has come out that the trials will be postponed……
Article 32 hearings, the military’s equivalent to a civilian preliminary court hearing, were originally set for Dec. 10 at Naval Station Norfolk. The Navy did not say why the hearings were pushed back but indicated it expected to hear the case in March.
The family of the deceased deserve speedy end to their ordeal….and yet the Navy is dragging its feet….why?
Could this delay have anything to do with the discipline problems that are rumored?
The Navy needs to bring this chapter to a close as quickly as possible and allow the widow and family time to grieve and find some closure.
