I googled him and read quite a bit. I have to say, for someone who keeps up with military issues quite regularly, this was the first I've heard of him.

As a former Infantryman, my heart goes out to him and his family. The politically-correct rules of engagement can be a motherfucker when turned against a good soldier. It makes me want to retch to think of some non-combat arms POS sentencing this poor guy to 25 years. There is a long tradition in the US Army of hanging low-ranking enlisted men and officers out to dry.

Fuck, for all I care, Behenna could have executed the fucker in cold blood. Doesn't bother me in the least. Let his bomb-making ass fucking rot with his 72 virgins.

As usual the REMF's get it completely wrong. Instead of giving the soldier a medal, they put him in jail. Not good for morale. Not good for enlistments. Not good for the Army. And now it's probably going to be covered up.

We don't give medals for that.

There is an appeal underway.
More about that here.
Sorry Rusty, but I don't think those links shed much light on this. The articles I've read on this point to the need for a new trial, at minimum. I don't know whether the guy is innocent or not, but he should get the justice he deserves.
