This "Justice" Sounds More & More Familiar

The dispicable details emerging from Baghdad this weekend kind of sounds like the MSM & John Murtha school of Haditha justice was administered here against our 2 brave Marines found murdered & mutilated last week. The below is what happens when you have the Judge, Jury and Executioner all wrapped in one Mr. Murtha.
Militants likely captured soldiers alive: "WASHINGTON - The two American soldiers whose mutilated bodies were recovered earlier this week near Baghdad were likely captured alive, though possibly wounded, after an attack and were killed later by insurgents after a hasty trial, military officers familiar with an investigation said Friday.

Evidence gathered so far indicates that Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston, and another soldier survived a firefight June 16 and were taken by insurgents to a hideout in the area.
The other soldier that they so callously refer to was Pfc. Thomas L. the way...well known info that for some inexplicable reason is left out of a story written today?
There they were tried by a hurriedly convened Islamic court and killed, execution-style, according to an officer familiar with the Army inquiry in Iraq." skip ahead

The military has delayed issuing a report about the capture of Menchaca and Pfc. Thomas Tucker, 25, of Madras, Ore., in part to withhold details that, upon release, may jeopardize the intense manhunt under way for the killers.

"We are on the hunt for the people who did this. There are good leads we are following up on," said Lt. Col. Michelle Martin-Hing, a spokeswoman for the military command in Baghdad.

Maybe Murtha and his Minions can locate these enemy criminal terrorists and lynch them too.

The remainder (more) of the interesting article discusses the families' disappointment that these soldiers seem to have been left in a compromising postion that may have encouraged their abduction and killing. If that is indeed the case hopefully the protocol will be adjusted by the commanders and officers to assure that this doesn't happen again to any more of our bravest.
