Strange justice and even stranger fair play
when it involves another nation's officer.
Here is some food for thought: I was just reading my July edition of the Smithsonian, featuring happenings of 35 years ago - 1970. Among other things "In the News": "On July 15, a House investigating committee reports that Army and State Department officers covered up a March 1968 massacre of hundreds of Vietnamese civilians by American soldiers in the hamlet of My Lai. Twenty five officers and enlisted men were eventually charged with the murder and related crimes. But only Lt. William Calley was convicted; he served three years of house arrest and now lives in Atlanta."
Not only does this remind us of this Administration's cover-ups in regard to tortures in Abu Graib and its disregard of Geneva conventions, but the hypocrisy of demanding the arrest of Gen.Gotovina for the killing of 150 Serb civilians during Operation Storm, - for command responsibility even though he gave no such order. And than consider the difference in the sentencing: The ICTY hands out several years of prison sentences, while the American officer in an American court gets house arrest for the killing of several hundred people! Strange justice and even stranger fair play when it involves another nation's officer.
