After nine years, hardly anyone is surprised by this anymore. What struck me was the comment by the defence lawyer:
“His court martial hearing begins this week. Morlock has already agreed to plead guilty to murder, conspiracy and other charges, and to testify against his co-defendants in return for a maximum sentence of 24 years in jail.
His lawyers have said that while he might be “physically responsible” for his crimes, “the people who are morally responsible are the American leaders who have us in the wrong war at the wrong time”.”
Ah, the Americans, once more demonstrating to the world their peerless ability to take responsibility for personal failings.
EDIT: Well, well well……what have we here…
