USMC LT COL CHESSANI MADE "SCAPEGOAT"
It's an injustice that is sure to adversely impact the morale of our U.S. Marines fighting in Iraq.
YOUNG CORPORAL SHOWS REMORSE AT MISTAKEN SLAYINGS
Lance Cpl. Stephen B. Tatum, the only other Marine out of eight originally charged, to be recommended for court-martial (and unfairly slandered as "cold-blooded killers" by the fatuous Congressman John P. Murtha), told investigators at his Article 32 preliminary hearing he fired his rifle into a dimly-lit room at "shadowy figures." The young Marine wept as he described his horror at the realization, moments later, that he had inadvertently shot women and children.
NO MATTER WHAT TRIAL RESULT, LT COL CHESSANI'S
As for Chessani, even if acquitted (as he should be), his career as a Marine officer is over. The high cost of legal defense, the terrible ordeal of being unjustly punished by the Corps to which he dedicated the better part of his adult life, all this will be a crushing burden for him to carry.
