This is getting my blood boiling

Read this on BLACKFIVE the other day, and it's just got me fuming-

Does SOCOM have Spec Ops troop's backs?

How the hell do we expect to win this thing if our snipers, their officers, and our troops in general spend so much time second guessing their actions? Let's paralyze out troops by having them constantly worry about facing charges FOR FOLLOWING THE RULES, that's the way to win this war! < /sarcasm >

More info and updates here and here

Even if these charges are finally dropped, the military careers of these troopers are basically over, especially for the officers. The whole thing just stinks.

I've thought that about our President's strategy in the war, too, though--that we paralyze him by second guessing all the time? Of course, it's more black and white here--I absolutely agree we can't punish troops for *doing their jobs*.
