Despite crimes, U.S. soldiers immune from punishments in Iraq

Russell Carollo and Larry Kaplow of the Dayton Daily News and Cox News Service used a Pentagon database to show that "dozens of soldiers have been accused of crimes against Iraqis since the first troops deployed for Iraq. But despite strong evidence and convictions in some cases, only a small percentage resulted in punishments nearing those routinely imposed for such crimes by civilian justice systems." The paper analyzed records from the Army Court-Martial Management Information System, finding 226 soldiers charged between the initial deployment and Jan. 1, 2005.
